This is my tough six-team bye week. I carry just one Kicker, Seattle's Josh Brown, and one QB, Dallas' Tony Romo, and both have a bye this week. As a result, I had to waive two players to pick-up Cleveland's Phil Dawson and Oakland's Daunte Culpepper. The unlucky players? Miami Dolphin's Marty Booker and Tampa Bay's Michael Bennett.
Fortunately, the three WRs I have to choose to fill my two WR slots plus my Flex are rated well by Football Scientist KC Joyner in this week's matchups. ( I also have Arizona's Edgerrin James on a bye and my reserve RBs are either on a bye (Atlanta's Jerrious Norwood) or so far too disappointing (Washington's Ladell Betts). I actually picked-up Tennessee's RB Chris Henry to start.)
Reggie Brown has a favorable match-up against Minnesota. Torry Holt is always started, and the return of RB Stephen Jackson may help rejuvenate the league's worst scoring of fense. Finally, the Bears' Muhsin Muhammad matches-up favorably against the always-burnable Stanley Wilson.
