NFL Schedule
SUNDAY SEPT 16TH TIME (ET) Bet on NFL at Bodog
Cincinnati at Cleveland 1:00 PM  

Cleveland Browns Stadium (73,300) -- Cleveland, Ohio

If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Sunday when the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns meet at Cleveland Browns Stadium. Oddsmakers currently have the Bengals listed as 7-point favorites versus the Browns, while the game's total is sitting at 41. You can guarantee "Ocho Cinco" will reach the end zone again on Sunday versus a Browns squad that gave up almost 400 yards of offense in Week 1. The only way Cleveland has a chance to win is if one of the Bengals' big three goes down or if Anderson plays out of character and scorches a tough Cincy defense through the air.

Start'em: Palmer, R.Johnson, C. Johnson, Houshmandzadeh, Winslow

Sit'em: Anderson, Lewis, Edwards, DST Browns

Buffalo at Pittsburgh 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Heinz Field (65,050) -- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Steelers are riding high after a blowout win over the Browns, while the Bills are dealing with a tragedy in the locker room and a last-second loss. The fans at Heinz Field will be treated to a game between the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers when they take their seats on Sunday. Oddsmakers currently have the Steelers listed as 10-point favorites versus the Bills, while the game's total is sitting at 38. A majority of the Steelers' offense deserves a look this week, especially given the current injury state of the Bills' defense. Ride the hot hand of Big Ben as well as Parker, who should find the end zone. This probably isn't a good week for any of your Bills players. The Steelers should find themselves in good field position throughout the game and should cruise to a victory over the weary Bills.

Start'em: Evans, Roethlisberger, Parker, Ward, DST Steelers

Sit'em: DST Bills, Lynch, Reed, Holmes, Miller

New Orleans at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Raymond James Stadium (65,908) -- Tampa, Florida

The division rival New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to renew hostilities on Sunday when they meet at Raymond James Stadium. Oddsmakers currently have the Saints listed as 4-point favorites versus the Buccaneers, while the game's total is sitting at 41½. Brees owners will be expecting a much better return on their investment this week. Colston had had 11 catches totaling 123 yards the last time these teams met . Tampa Bay's best fantasy prospect for Sunday is Galloway. Williams is a must- sit, but Pittman should be able to generate some points. New Orleans' longer preparation time and superior personnel will eventually win out in a tight contest.

Start'em: Brees, McAllister, Bush, Colston, Galloway

Sit'em: Henderson, E. Johnson, Saints DST, Garcia, Cadillac, Pittman, Bucs DST


Houston at Carolina 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Bank of America Stadium (73,298) -- Charlotte, North Carolina

The Houston Texans and the Carolina Panthers will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Bank of America Stadium. Delhomme and Schaub rewarded fantasy managers who took a chance on them last week, as both put up strong numbers. Neither can necessarily be tagged as reliable at this stage. The surest fantasy bets on the field are the two Pro Bowl receivers, Steve Smith and Andre Johnson. In their home opener, look for the Panthers to provide a continuation of last week's all- around effort, while Houston displays the general inconsistency that is a hallmark of young teams. Oddsmakers currently have the Panthers listed as 7-point favorites versus the Texans, while the game's total is sitting at 39.

Start'em: Green, A. Johnson, S. Smith, Foster, Panthers DST

Sit'em: Schaub, Daniels, Texans DST, Delhomme, Williams, Colbert

Atlanta at Jacksonville 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Jacksonville Municipal Stadium (67,164) -- Jacksonville, Florida

The fans at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium will be treated to a game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Jacksonville Jaguars when they take their seats on Sunday. Fantasy owners were not happy with what running backs Taylor and Jones-Drew failed to accomplish last week. Garrard performed well against Tennessee and will enjoy another solid week. Don't start running backs Dunn and Norwood and tight end Crumpler. Neither defense has fantasy potential. The 2007 season will be a tough one for Atlanta, which is headed for its first 0-2 start since the 2002 campaign. Oddsmakers currently have the Jaguars listed as 10½-point favorites versus the Falcons, while the game's total is sitting at 34½.

Start'em: Jones-Drew, Jaguars DST

Sit'em: Harrington, Dunn, Norwood, Crumpler, Falcons DST, Garrard, Taylor, Wilford

Indianapolis at Tennessee 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

LP Field (69,143) -- Nashville, Tennessee

The division rival Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans are set to renew hostilities on Sunday when they meet at LP Field. Defensively, neither team is a gem, though they are both improved from last season. Start all the usual suspects in this division rivalry. Look for Young to create some problems, as he always does, with big plays and improvisation. But, when push comes to shove, it's still Indianapolis. Oddsmakers currently have the Colts listed as 7½-point favorites versus the Titans, while the game's total is sitting at 45½.

Start'em: Manning, Addai, Harrison, Wayne, Clark, Young

Sit'em: Gonzalez, Colts DST, Brown, White, Jones, Titans DST

San Francisco at St. Louis 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Edward Jones Dome (66,000) -- St. Louis, Missouri

The San Francisco 49ers and the St. Louis Rams will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Edward Jones Dome. The 49ers remain a trendy pick to win the NFC West and make the playoffs. For the Rams the loss of Pace will have huge implications. Oddsmakers currently have the Rams listed as 3-point favorites versus the 49ers, while the game's total is sitting at 44. Bulger and Jackson are due for bounce- back days and are solid plays, as are the always productive Torry Holt and kicker Jeff Wilkins. Gore is the only first-rate fantasy player, with D-Jack a close 2nd, as he's always played the Rams tough.

Start'em: Gore, D-Jack, Davis, Bulger, Jackson, Holt

Sit'em: Smith, Battle, 49ers DST, Bruce, McMichael, Rams DST
Green Bay at NY Giants 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Giants Stadium (80,242) -- East Rutherford, New Jersey

The Green Bay Packers and the New York Giants will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at Giants Stadium. The Giants come into this game banged up, and the Pack would be smart to jump all over them. Start most of the Packers if you got em, and as for the Giants, well they're scary this week. Maybe Plaxico, but that's it. Both New York's Ward and Green Bay's Jackson are worth starting in deep leagues. Oddsmakers currently have the Giants listed as 2-point favorites versus the Packers, while the game's total is sitting at 38. I'll take a healthy Favre over a banged-up Manning or FAT-ASS Lorenzen any day of the week, and the legendary Packer quarterback should be able to put up some points.

Start'em: Favre, Jackson, Driver, Packers DST, Burress, Shockey

Sit'em: Jones, Lee, Ward, Toomer, Giants DST

Seattle at Arizona 4:05 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

University of Phoenix Stadium (65,000) -- Glendale, Arizona

The Seattle Seahawks will face their first divisional test of the young season when the three-time defending NFC West champions head to University of Phoenix Stadium this Sunday to take on the upstart Arizona Cardinals. Alexander is a must-start every week, but he failed to rush for 100 yards in both meetings with Arizona last season. For the Cardinals, look for rebound games out of both Boldin and Fitzgerald on Sunday and a solid fantasy day from James. Oddsmakers currently have the Seahawks listed as 3-point favorites versus the Cardinals, while the game's total is sitting at 42½. This should be a close game so go with the team with the better quarterback. Hasselbeck.

Start'em: Hasselbeck, Alexander, Branch, Leinart, James, Boldin, Fitzgerald

Sit'em: Engram, Pollard, Seahawks DST, Johnson, Pope, Cardinals DST

Minnesota at Detroit 4:05 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Ford Field (64,500) -- Detroit, Michigan

The Lions will hold their 2007 home opener against the division-rival Minnesota Vikings on Sunday when they meet at Ford Field. Sportsbooks currently have the Lions listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Vikings, while the game's total is sitting at 42½. Roy Williams and Johnson look to be good starts for a Lions team that will be throwing the ball an awful lot come Sunday. Detroit's opening day showing made Kitna's bold prediction of a 10-win season seem a little less outlandish. Defense is what wins football games, and the Vikings have a clear edge in that category. Start Peterson. The first-year back will put up plenty of yards against Detroit's porous defense.

Start'em: Peterson, Kitna, R. Williams, Johnson

Sit'em: Jackson, Taylor, Wade, Vikings DST, Bell, Campbell, Lions DST

Dallas at Miami 4:05 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Dolphin Stadium (75,192) -- Miami Gardens, Florida

The Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins play on Sunday afternoon, when the new head coach and starting quarterback of the Miami Dolphins contend with the Dallas Cowboys in the Fins' home opener. Romo, Witten, Owens, and the two running backs should all be fantasy starters, but its a tough call to figure out which RB should be in. At present The Dolphins tend to be a different team at home than they are on the road. After their performance against the Giants, most members of the Dallas offense will merit a start in Week 2. Chambers looks like he's going to be something of a reliable play for Miami, but that's it. Sportsbooks currently have the Cowboys listed as 4-point favorites versus the Dolphins, while the game's total is sitting at 40½.

Start'em: Chambers, Dolphins DST, Romo, Owens, Witten, Cowboys DST

Sit'em: Green, Brown, Martin, Ginn Jr, Crayton, J. Jones

NY Jets at Baltimore 4:15 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

M&T Bank Stadium (70,107) -- Baltimore, Maryland

UGH. This could be ugly as the New York Jets and the Baltimore Ravens will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at M & T Bank Stadium. A healthy Pennington against a replacement Boller might tilt the scales toward New York. But I think McNair will go. Neither team is known for its offense, though McGahee's resume' of effort against Gang Green could be a worthwhile reason to give him a start. Sportsbooks currently have the Ravens listed as 10-point favorites versus the Jets, while the game's total is sitting at 33. So having said that expect the Ravens to keep this a low scoring affair and come out on top.

Start'em: McGahee, Heap, Ravens DST

Sit'em: Clemons, Jones, Coles, Jets DST, McNair, Clayton, Mason

Oakland at Denver 4:15 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

INVESCO Field at Mile High (76,125) -- Denver, Colorado

Divisional bragging rights and Daunte Culpepper is expected to be under center when the Raiders visit the Denver Broncos in a Week 2 showdown between bitter AFC West rivals from Invesco Field at Mile High. Sportsbooks currently have the Broncos listed as 10-point favorites versus the Raiders, while the game's total is sitting at 37½. This game will be an excellent indicator of whether Oakland has really made any progress on offense, as the Broncos will provide a far sterner challenge than Detroit. Henry owners have to be pleased. Look for Walker's numbers to take a dip this week, and start the Broncos D. For the Raiders, bench em all. The Oakland Raiders haven't won on the road in almost two years.

Start'em: Cutler, Henry, Walker, Broncos DST

Sit'em: Culpepper, Jordan, Curry, Porter, Raiders DST, Marshall, Stokley

Kansas City at Chicago 4:15 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Soldier Field (61,500) -- Chicago, Illinois

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Chicago Bears will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Soldier Field. The Bears and Chiefs were two of four NFL teams that failed to find the end zone last week, hopefully the trend doesn't continue. Sportsbooks currently have the Bears listed as 13-point favorites versus the Chiefs, while the game's total is sitting at 34½. So can we expect a little scoring? Probably! But only by the hometown Bears. The Chiefs haven't shown any offensive signs of life since the start of training camp, and playing the defensively stout Bears is not a good thing. The Chiefs defense was average at best against Houston. Grossman's top targets were wideout Bernard Berrian (5 receptions, 83 yards) and tight end Desmond Clark, play em again. Oh and start the Bears D. Duh!

Start'em: Larry Johnson, Benson, Berrian, Bears DST

Sit'em: Huard, Bowe, Parker, Chiefs DST, Grossman, Muhammed

Sunday Night Football, SEP 16 TIME (ET) Bet on NFL at Bodog
San Diego at New England 8:15 PM  

Gillette Stadium (68,756) -- Foxborough, Massachusetts

The San Diego Chargers and the New England Patriots will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Gillette Stadium. It's the battle of Two popular picks to represent the AFC in Super Bowl XLII. The sportsbooks currently have the Patriots listed as 4-point favorites versus the Chargers, while the game's total is sitting at 46½. Moss reverted to a form the world hadn't seen since he was a member of the Vikings, ride the wave. It's tough to go wrong starting Moss, Brady, or even Welker. For San Diego, there's no one in the world resting Tomlinson or Gates. Many will give the Patriots the advantage in this matchup of talented teams, I don't. The Chargers win this battle, with guys like Philip Rivers and kicker Nate Kaeding getting you some fantasy points too.

Start'em: LT, Gates, Chargers DST, Brady, Maroney, Moss, Patriots DST

Sit'em: Jackson, Davis, Welker, Stallworth, Watson

Monday Night Football, SEP 17 TIME (ET) Bet on NFL at Bodog
Washington at Philadelphia 8:30 PM

Lincoln Financial Field (68,400) -- Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at Lincoln Financial Field. McNabb will be playing his first meaningful game at Lincoln Financial Field since last Nov. 19th, when he tore his right ACL. Last week the Eagles lost to an inferior Packers team based mainly on special teams gaffes, and this week the Redskins will be attempting to build on last week's 16-13 overtime win over the Dolphins. Sportsbooks currently have the Eagles listed as 7-point favorites versus the Redskins, while the game's total is sitting at 39. McNabb should get better from Week 1 to Week 2, and is worth starting. Elsewhere for the Eagles, Westbrook always puts up numbers. Washington has little to recommend besides perhaps Portis and maybe tight end Chris Cooley.

Start'em: Portis, McNabb, Westbrook

Sit'em: Campbell, Betts, Cooley, Skins DST, Brown, Curtis, Eagles DST
