Big Ben for sure, Palmer is INT happy and McCown is up against a nasty Rams D.

Douglas at flex, that'll be a high scoring game.

Definitely Baltimore at D

Thanks for your help with mine.

I'm a Rams fan. I think you'll want to play McCown. If you look back at the games the Rams played against big time wideouts (Julio, Fitzgerald, Andre) our safeties can't hang in help coverage with Marshall and Jeffrey. They'll sack him a few times, but he'll also torch them a few. Plus, you know, dome and all. Palmer could have a decent game against the Colts, but I think Pittsburgh-Cleveland will be a bad weather North brawl.

Flex I'd go Douglas. Bit of a gamble given we don't know how the Saints will cover, but I like his odds better than Ellington or a Rainey repeat. Floor is potentially too low for Ball. In a big time game they may want to call Moreno's number more often than the rookie.

Definitely Baltimore D. Houston has not played well since losing Cushing.
