Questions for Philadelphia/New Orleans

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.

Heck, I expect RBs Correll Buckhalter and/or Randy Moats to be doing the same as a result of the heavy bye week.

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.
