Who to Start: Week 1
September 5th 2007
by Special K

Here is a list of players who I think will produce the maximum amount of points at their position for the upcoming week.  The scoring system can be found at the bottom of this article. 

QB - Donovan McNabb

McNabb threw for 288 yards with 2 TD's and also rushed for 2 TD's in last year's game against the Packers. I look for more of the same this year with one more passing TD and one less rushing TD.

RB - Willie Parker

Last year Parker lit up the Browns for 223 yards and a TD.  If I recall correctly, the Browns hold the record for giving up the most rushing yards in a game.  We will see how much Mike Tomlin likes the running game this week.

WR - Marvin Harrison

You could pretty much choose Harrison every week as the top receiver which would make this article pointless, however against a very weak Saints pass defense, I have to go with Harrison.  Torry Holt was a close 2nd.

TE - Vernon Davis

Arizona was one of the league's worst against the pass last year and I look for Davis to capitalize inside and outside of the red zone.  Hopefully, the 49ers will rest Gore's sore hand by limiting his carries thus giving Davis more touches.

K - Robbie Gould

The strategy here is to find a team who will struggle in the red zone and have to settle for field goals. The Bears may very well be that team this week against the Chargers.

D - Minnesota Vikings

What? Not the Bears, Ravens or Chargers?? Yes, this may be a shocker to some but the match up for the Vikings defense is too good to be true.  Without the threat of a Falcons passing attack and with the Vikings having such a great run defense, I'm not sure how the Falcons will score any points in this one.
