NFL Schedule
SUN, OCT 7 TIME (ET) Bet on NFL at Bodog
Jacksonville at Kansas City 1:00 PM  

Arrowhead Stadium (79,451) -- Kansas City, Missouri

The Jaguars are coming off a bye week and are anxious to find out if they can continue the trend of winning away from home. Kansas City appears to be rebounding after a poor start by winning their last two games against Minnesota and at San Diego. With both of these teams finding points to be at a premium this year, either defense figures to be a solid play. Both Garrard and Huard will be facing tough secondaries and good pass-rushing teams this week, so neither is a recommended starting option. Sportsbook currently have the Jaguars listed as 2-point favorites versus the Chiefs, while the over/under is sitting at 36.

Start'em: Jags DST, LJ, Bowe, Gonzo

Sit'em: The Rest

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

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

While the Rams are badly beat up and struggling to get anything going on offense, the Cardinals appear to be a revitalized football team. Second-year head coach Scott Linehan has his hands full trying to get his first win in 2007 versus a most improved and balanced Arizona club led by first-year head coach Ken Whisenhunt. At this point, few are worth starting on the Rams. Outside of Holt, no other St. Louis offensive player should get a look. oth Warner and Leinart are risky because of the current situation under center, while James has been solid all year. Sportsbook currently have the Cardinals listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Rams, while the over/under is sitting at 40½.

Start'em: James, Fitz, Rackers, Holt

Sit'em: The Rest

Cleveland at New England 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

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

A matchup of the most successful and least successful NFL franchises in recent years. The Browns look to be overmatched on the whole in this road game. Brady and Moss are must-plays no matter who the opponent is. Maroney splits time with Morris, who appears to have taken over Corey Dillon's old role as goal-line specialist. The Browns don't possess a lot of good fantasy prospects in this matchup outside of Winslow. Sportsbook currently have the Patriots listed as 17-point favorites versus the Browns, while the over/under is sitting at 49.

Start'em: Anderson, Edwards, Winslow, Brady, Morris, Moss, Welker, Watson, Pats D

Sit'em: The Rest


Carolina at New Orleans 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Louisiana Superdome (65,000) -- New Orleans, Louisiana

While the Carolina Panthers are coming off a disappointing home loss to Tampa Bay, the New Orleans Saints are trying to figure out how to regain the form that took them to the 2006 NFC championship game. A battle between two of the most confounding teams in the National Football League. Bush, Colston, and especially Brees are currently sinking fantasy teams from coast to coast, though there is still some hope. Steve Smith can generally be counted on to put up some numbers, but the two-back system rotating Foster and DeAngelo Williams has frustrated fantasy managers. Sportsbook currently have the Saints listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Panthers, while the over/under is sitting at 44.

Start'em: Smith, Brees, Bush, Colston

Sit'em: The Rest

NY Jets at NY Giants 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

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

Last week the Jets lost at Buffalo, while the Giants mauled an undermanned Eagles offensive line for 12 sacks.The battle of New York takes place on Sunday with the teams headed in opposite directions. Manning figures to do well looking downfield, the Jets' struggles on the defensive line also seem tailor-made for a Giants defense that's hitting its pass-rushing stride. For the Jets, those still awaiting a consistent breakout performance from Jones could give him another shot, and Cotchery might also be worthwhile. Sportsbook currently have the Giants listed as 4-point favorites versus the Jets, while the over/under is sitting at 40½.

Start'em: Pennington, Cotchery, Manning, Ward, Burress, Shockey, Giants DST

Sit'em: The Rest

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

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

pair of 3-1 teams square off Sunday afternoon in the Steel City, where the Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Seattle Seahawks at Heinz Field in a rematch of Super Bowl XL. Seattle (3-1) will be looking for a small measure of revenge when the division leaders meet on Sunday. There will be plenty of fantasy points to dole out for either team this Sunday, most notably from running backs Parker and Alexander. Roethlisberger is a solid starting quarterback, Hasselbeck is a must-start every week simply because of the passing numbers he puts up. Wideouts Branch and Engram have been the go-to guys for Seattle. Ward is OUT for Pittsburgh. Sportsbook currently have the Steelers listed as 6½-point favorites versus the Seahawks, while the over/under is sitting at 40½.

Start'em: Hasselbeck, Alexander, Branch, Parker, Roethlisberger, Steelers DST

Sit'em: The Rest

Detroit at Washington 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

FedExField (91,704) -- Landover, Maryland

3-1 Detroit has gotten here by relying on Kitna to get the ball to a group of big-play wide receivers, while Washington is using Portis to control the clock and keep the ball away from opposing offenses. Kitna and Williams have been fantasy gold so far this season. Washington's reliance on the run and the Lions' shaky defense should provide ample point opportunities for both Portis and Betts. The probable absence of Moss makes Randle El a good option. Sportsbook currently have the Redskins listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Lions, while the over/under is sitting at 46.

Start'em: Kitna, Williams, Portis, El, Cooley

Sit'em: The Rest
Miami at Houston 1:00 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Reliant Stadium (71,054) -- Houston, Texas

The Houston Texans have been unable to generate much of a ground game in their last two losses. Good thing the Miami Dolphins are coming to town. The Texans look to become the latest team to exploit the Dolphins porous run defense as the teams meet at Reliant Stadium in Houston on Sunday. After a slow first couple of games, Ronnie Brown has become a must-start for fantasy owners due to both his rushing and receiving prowess. Schaub figures to get you some points, especially if Green is once again out of the lineup. Schaub's top receivers last week, Andre Davis and Walter, are worth a look.

Start'em: Schaub, Dayne/Green, R. Brown, O. Daniels, Chambers

Sit'em: The Rest

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

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

The Titans look for a strong return after their bye week and try to win their first home game of the season when they meet the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Atlanta came out of Week 4 with a much-needed win against the Texans at home and will be hoping to keep the momentum going. This non-conference game is a battle between two teams that don't face each other too often. Not too many fantasy owners have Atlanta Falcons players in their starting lineups, yet alone occupying a roster spot. Harrington is starting to heat up and understand Petrino's new offensive scheme. Tennessee has a few fantasy players in Young, Brown and LenDale White, who has received the bulk of the rushing duties over the team's last two games. Sportsbook currently have the Titans listed as 8½-point favorites versus the Falcons, while the over/under is sitting at 40½.

Start'em: Young, L. White, Harrington, Titans DST

Sit'em: The Rest

Tampa Bay at Indianapolis 4:05 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

RCA Dome (55,531) -- Indianapolis, Indiana

The defending Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts have jumped out to an early division lead, but injuries to some of their key players are a cause for concern. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can relate. The Colts are developing an air of invincibility after their Week 4 bucking of the Broncos. Can they buck the Bucs this week at home? Manning is a slam-dunk starter and Addai is becoming one as well, provided he's healthy enough to play a full role on Sunday. Look for Wayne to post big numbers as well with Harrison limited. For the Tampa offense, Galloway has been a big-play source and could roam a little freer if Sanders is slowed at all, and it appears he could be a gametime decision. Sportsbook currently have the Colts listed as 10-point favorites versus the Buccaneers, while the over/under is sitting at 45½.

Start'em: Galloway, Manning, Addai (INJ), Wayne, Harrison (INJ), Clark

Sit'em: The Rest

Baltimore at San Francisco 4:15 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

Monster Park (69,732) -- San Francisco, California

As if having the NFL's worst offense wasn't bad enough, the San Francisco 49ers now are missing their starting quarterback. Things are unlikely to get any easier against one of the league's most dominating defenses of the decade when they host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Neither has been remarkably consistent, but running backs McGahee and Gore - a pair of ex-Miami Hurricanes - have been productive enough to remain worthy of starting status. The Ravens defense hasn't been great this year, but against a San Francisco team that struggles to move the ball or protect its quarterbacks, the unit is a worthwhile start. Sportsbook currently have the Ravens listed as 3½-point favorites versus the 49ers, while the over/under is sitting at 35.

Start'em: Gore, McGahee, Heap, Mason, Ravens DST

Sit'em: The Rest

San Diego at Denver 4:15 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog

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

The San Diego Chargers are desperate to get their season back on track. That won't be easy to do in Denver. The Chargers try to snap a three-game slide Sunday when they visit the AFC West rival Broncos. Tomlinson's performance in Week 4 was encouraging for fantasy managers. He's still a must-start, as is Gates. Team owners will be monitoring the status of Henry and Walker right up to game time, stay away from all other Broncos. Sportsbook currently have the Broncos 1 ½-point favorites versus the 49ers, while the over/under is sitting at 43.

Start'em: LT, Gates, Cutler, Marshall

Sit'em: The Rest

Sunday Night Football, SEP 30 8:15 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog
Chicago at Green Bay

Lambeau Field (72,928) -- Green Bay, Wisconsin

Fresh off a record-setting performance, Favre will try to keep his team undefeated Sunday when the Packers host a Bears team desperate for an answer at quarterback. Last week Brett Favre became the NFL's all-time leader in career touchdown passes. He's hoping to carry the momentum into Sunday's game. Favre continues to warrant a start each week, Driver and Jennings are also good starts, None of Green Bay's running backs even justify a spot, for the Bears, their defense should put together a pretty good game. Sportsbook currently have the Packers listed as 3½-point favorites versus the Bears, while the over/under is sitting at 41.

Start'em: Bears DST, Favre, Driver, Jennings, Packers DST

Sit'em: The Rest

Monday Night Football, OCT 8 8:30 PM Bet on NFL at Bodog
Dallas at Buffalo

Ralph Wilson Stadium (73,967) -- Orchard Park, New York

Phillips' Dallas Cowboys have a chance to go 5-0 for the first time in 24 years when they visit the Bills on Monday night. Tony Romo and Dallas' offense is scoring at a record pace. The Cowboys' 151 points are 22 more than the NFL record-holding 1998 Minnesota Vikings had at the same point. The injury-ravaged Bills enter Monday night's game having struggled mightily on both sides of the football during a 1-3 start. The Cowboys offense has a number of must-starts, including Romo, Barber, Owens, Witten. As for the Bills, look long and hard to find a Buffalo player worth starting, though if you're desperate try Evans. Sportsbook currently have the Cowboys listed as 11-point favorites versus the Bills, while the over/under is sitting at 45.

Start'em: Romo, Owens, Crayton, Barber, Witten, Cowboys DST

Sit'em: The Rest
