Week 9 Start 'E, / Sit 'Em

Here are my selections for who to start and sit this week in the NFL:


Hot Starts-

1. Joe
Flacco (BAL) - The Bengals rank 30th in the NFL against the pass, and rank 31st when playing at home. This won't be high scoring because of both defenses, but I see Flacco racking up yards all game.
2. Jason Campbell (WAS) - Campbell is a solid fill-in QB this week if you are in a deep league. Campbell is coming off a bye week so his preparation and game planning should mean he'll at least have a good first half. But, Campbell had a decent day against the Eagles two Sundays ago when he threw for 284 yards and 2 TDs.

Cold Starts-
1. Matt Ryan (ATL)
- Ryan should put up decent yards against Washington, but I think Atlanta's scoring will come on the ground. Atlanta plays well at home and and Ryan will put scoring drives together, but I think Michael Turner will punch them in for 6 on the ground. The Skins defense is tough, ranking 2nd against the pass and averages 2.5 sacks per game.


Hot Starts-
1. Jamaal Charles (KC) -
The Jaguars give up big plays on the ground (as evidence from last week against Tennessee) and Jamaal Charles has the tools to bust open for long yard runs. The Chiefs have a chance to put it to the Jaguars this week and they should be very prepared as they had an extra week to get ready for Jacksonville. I expect a solid day out of Charles.

2. Ryan Grant (GB) - This will be Grants coming out party of the season. The Bucs are horrible defensively and Grant will have plenty of chances to break away from defenders and turn 10 yard runs into 25 yards runs. Grant will go over 100 and get a score this weekend.

Cold Starts-
1. Knowshon Moreno (DEN) -
If Pittsburgh can hold Adrian Peterson to 69 yards on 18 carries (1 carry went for 19 yards so that is really 17 carries for 50 yards) do you really think Moreno will cut them up for anything more than that? I don't either. Sit him if you have anyone else.


Hot Starts-

1. Kevin Walter (HOU) -
With the loss of TE Owen Daniels the Texans need Walter to step up. I believe he will as Andre Johnson will draw double teams and pull safeties to his part of the field. Walter's targets should dramatically increase from here on out.

2. Nate Burleson (SEA) - Burleson was targeted 12 times last week bye Hasselbeck, and playing a Detroit Lions secondary that allows 270 yards through the air when they play on the road...Yeah, I will say Burleson is a hot start.

Cold Start-

1. Roddy White (ATL) -
This is a big reach as White has been on fire for a few weeks, but the Redskins secondary is very good against the pass and they have had 2 weeks to prepare for this game. Take away a 57 yard touchdown pass from McNabb to Jackson last week and McNabb's numbers were (14-24 99 yards). Sit him this week if you have any other options as I see White accumulating 5 catches for 60 yards.
