    Hey Atlas, those are last weeks games. However, based on this weeks opponents:

    RB Martin vs. Indy
    RB Bettis (If healthy) vs. Detroit

    If Hicks get the start over George against Oakland, remember what Priest Holmes recently did against the Raiders. Consider picking up Hicks, dropping WR Johnson, and starting Hicks instead of Bettis.

    Cincy as your D and ST? Man, you must have picked the team last. LOL

    DONT CHANGE!!

    Play the players that have got you this far. You drop ANY players they become available to others. You look like you ahve solid team.

    I would start Johnson over Chamberlain if its a yardage league. Both QB are hurting in MN.

    I have to start a TE. But, look on the bright side. Chamberlain seems to do well when everyone else is struggling.

    I picked the Bengals JUST for last week's game. Figured to get a good game out of them. The Chargers were my original start and might be again this week.

    That Skipp Hicks idea is a hell of a one. Thanks! Though, I think I'll drop Hilliard instead of Johnson for him. The Browns are still in the playoff hunt and could go big with Johnson still.

    Anyone think I have a chance of beating this guy? Faulk's going to have a HUGE game!!

    yeap...

    Its going to be tuff to beat him only because of the match ups this week. His players and going against weak competition or banged up defenses. Have faith in your team...it got you this far
