Who to Start: Week 6
October 10th 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. 

Week 5 Comments: I was right on with Kris Brown last week. In some leagues, the three 50 yard field goals he made could have been worth even more points.  Shockey got his TD and luckily we don't count turnovers against a QB, otherwise Romo would have nothing.

QB - Tom Brady

Tom Brady grew up idolizing Joe Montana, which means he most likely hated the rival Dallas Cowboys.  Brady's first game in Big D should be a memorable one.

RB -  Larry Johnson

There are a lot of good running back matchups this week (McGahee against Rams, LT vs Raiders, and Alexander against Saints). However, the Chiefs have something to really prove in their running game this week especially after only gaining 10 yards last week.  I seriously doubt the Bengals can even hold Johnson to under 100 rushing yards. I expect a high scoring affair in Arrowhead.

WR - T.J. Houshmandzadeh

The Bengals will most likely need to pass the ball this week against the Chiefs to be successful.  T.J. is also the leader this year in looks / touches per game.

TE - Greg Olsen

Griese was looking for rookie tight end a lot last week.  He should get a lot of catches this week as the Vikings are good at stopping the run.

K - Josh Brown

I'm going with the other Brown this week. The Saints defense can't stop anyone.

D - Chicago Bears

This is one of those games where you turn on the game late in the second quarter and the score is 3-0 Bears.  The Vikings will not even come close to scoring 10 points in this game. The Bears are fired up after last week's win at Green Bay. If the Vikings get behind early, this game could get out of hand really fast.
