Philadelphia at New Orleans 1:00 p.m.
QB Donovan McNabb has had a different fantasy receiving stud five weeks running. WR Reggie Brown and the back-up RBs seem to be the only ones who haven't got their chance.
And with six teams on byes this week, I am sure last week's stud, WR Hank Basket, is going to be starting on many more teams than his 4th WR status would normally indicate.
RB Brian Westbrook has gone from microfracture surgery candidate to peachy keen. Someone was wrong, and, given Westbrook's knee injuries, I am not prone towards beleiving the Healthy Hypothesis.
However, his six TDs make him an impossible player not to start.
Odds are Mcnabb is due for a bad game. Is it coming this week?
The Saints are coming off a great rushing game against the Buccanneers, and a medicore passing one.
Rookie surprise WR Marques Colsten was finally shut down. Will he bounce back this week? If he doesn't, does it indicate he has turned back into a pumpkin?
Any thoughts that RB Reggie Bush would split carries at RB with Deuce McAllister is offically kaput.
What is interesting, though, is both backs are very close in total yardage - 423 for Deuce and 420 for Bush. This occurs because Bush is the #1 receiving option right now with 34 catches. The aforementioned Colsten is a distant second with 23.
