Fantasy football for the 7th week

I, Senior Editor Rick Morris, will be filling in for our football correspondant Mike Vili this week with the NFL game-by-game fantasy notes. Mike will be back from vacation next week and back to disseminating his analysis on THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER on (Thursdays, 8-10 PM EDT). Also, quick side note: in what pains my Cleveland upbringing greatly, I will predict Tigers in six in the World Series. Cards, prove me wrong!

Denver vs. Cleveland: This looks to be a field goal fest, with the Broncos managing their season high in points and yielding more points than they have let this season -- but mostly with production from Jason Elam and Phil Dawson.

Jacksonville vs. Houston: This looks like a mediocre fantasy matchup with few marginal fantasy players to players to recommend.

Carolina vs. Cincinnati: The matchups suggest, and the pattern of the Bengals' season suggests that the Cincinnati line-oriented woes will continue to bring the offense down this week. We beg to differ. A nice shootout awaits, with Chris Henry being a nice option among the few marginal ones here.

New England vs. Buffalo: Stay away from all but the gimmes in this game.

Pittsburgh vs. Atlanta: Both offensive efforts last week, Pittburgh's great one and Atlanta's bad one, were an exception to the rule. This looks like another field goal battle.

Philadelphia vs. Tampa Bay: The Eagles will continue rolling offensively, and justifying widespread use of their players; the Bucs will continue to be sneaky good post-Chris Simms injury.

Detroit vs. New York Jets: Jones, Coles, and that's about it.

Green Bay vs. Miami: This isn't the turnaround fantasy game either offense needs. Beware.

San Diego vs. Kansas City: The Charger WRs still aren't worth playing, and on balance this is another sub-par fantasy game. Seems to be a lot of them this week, eh?

Minnesota vs. Seattle: Mo Morris won't turn his season around here, but other marginal fantasy options like new Seahawk Deion Branch will be good plays.

Arizona vs. Oakland: Randy Moss is as close to a fantasy star benching recommendation as we ever get, but we're not 100% of the way there yet. Notwithstanding the crushing loss Monday nght, the Cardinal offense will continue to progress strongly under Matt Leinart.

Washington vs. Indianapolis: Shootout!

New York Giants vs. Dallas: Two excellent fantasy offenses will turn it on Monday night. There are few marginal starters like Marion Barber, but they are worthwhile options.
