Redskins VS. Eagles
Betts has shown some nifty footwork and has been a serviceable fantasy
replacement ever since he stepped in for Clinton Portis four weeks ago--against
the Eagles (28th against the run). Betts may not have Portis's goal line
instincts, but he averages 3.3 receptions per game ( Portis averages 2.1).
Bills AT Jets
Here's what Willis was talkin' 'bout: In four career starts against New York,
McGahee has averaged a splendid 4.72 yards per carry and has never been held
under 113 yards. (He had 150 against the Jets in Week 3.) What's more, the Jets
recently have allowed monster games to Thomas Jones and Ahman Green.
Jaguars VS. Colts
Indy has allowed the most rushing yards (159.9 yards per game) and the
second-most TDs (13) in the league. Taylor's a supersafe bet, considering his
record against the Colts: In 10 career games he has logged only one subpar
performance (19 yards in a loss last year) and has topped 70 yards in the other
Cowboys VS. Saints
What a difference a few games make. In Week 9 it looked as if Glenn's season
was in jeopardy after he suffered a knee injury. Now he is one of Tony Romo's
favorite targets, hauling in 14 passes, including two TDs, over the last three
weeks. New Orleans's foes have passed for 11 TDs in the last six games.
49ers VS. Packers
Bryant went the entire month of November without a TD catch but broke the
drought last week against the Saints. This week he'll be Alex Smith's best
friend as he provides the Niners QB with a deep threat against a Green Bay team
that's been lit up for nine TD receptions in its last three games.
Bengals VS. Raiders
While Chad Johnson was challenging receiving records last month, Housh was
relatively quiet nursing a sore hamstring. Now he has come up big in two
straight games, including a 10-catch day against the Ravens. Carson Palmer will
hook up with both wideouts for TDs in this game.
Redskins VS. Eagles
As in 2005, Cooley is looking solid down the stretch. After going scoreless in
his first five games, he has five TDs in his last seven and has developed a
nice rapport with second-year QB Jason Campbell, who tossed two of those
scores. There's bad news down the road, though. As Campbell gains confidence,
he'll throw more to his fleet of underused wideouts.
