Backups: (T): Winston Justice (G): Chris Kuper, John Moffitt (C): Steve Vallos
Fantasy Impact: It's hard to throw too much praise on these guys. Last week they led the way for 280 yards on the ground at New England. The Chiefs have a more talented defense, but they could be playing as short-handed as the Pats were. Regardless if Tamba Hali and/or Justin Huston can suit up, the venue and pressure of the game will be challenge enough.
Previous: (Week/Rank) 1/2, 2/2, 3/1, 4/1, 5/1, 6/1, 7/1, 8/2, 9/3, 10/2, 11/1, 12/1
2. Cincinnati Bengals Excellent Stability / Good Health
Starters: Andrew Whitworth (LT), Clint Boling (LG), Kyle Cook (C), Mike Pollak (RG), Andre Smith (RT)

Fantasy Impact: The Bengals are playing great football and their offense has really taken a step forward this year. The addition of rookie running back Giovani Bernard has been a big part of that leap, but it all starts up front. This week they'll take on a Chargers' defense that is prone to giving up big yardage.
Previous: (Week/Rank) 1/12, 2/11, 3/4, 4/3, 5/3, 6/2, 7/2, 8/1, 9/1, 10/3, 11/2, 12/2
