2.Aaron Rodgers GB vs. Det
3.Peyton Manning DEN at Oak
4.Tom Brady NE vs. Hou
5.Drew Brees NO at NYG
Note: How many fantasy teams were sunk by the collective effort of Brees and Ryan on Thursday night?

7.Eli Manning NYG vs. NO
8.Cam Newton CAR vs. Atl
9.Matthew Stafford DET at GB

14.Tony Romo DAL at Cin
15.Andy Dalton CIN vs. Dal
Note: Tough break to lose Mohamed Sanu for the rest of the season.
16.*Ben Roethlisberger PIT vs. SD
Note: (Shoulder) Tentatively slated to start, provided he can make the necessary throws in practice Wednesday & Thursday. Practiced Wednesday and Thursday, has been named the starter officially.
17.Joe Flacco BAL at Was
18.*Jake Locker TEN at Ind
Note: Miserable real life game against the Texans, though in most fantasy formats the turnovers aren't too punitive.
19.Brandon Weeden CLE vs. KC
20.Carson Palmer OAK vs. Den
21.Russell Wilson SEA vs. Ari
22.Jay Cutler CHI at Min
23.Ryan Fitzpatrick BUF vs. StL

27.Ryan Tannehill MIA at SF
Note: Tannehill's rushing touchdown salvaged an otherwise miserable effort.
28.Sam Bradford STL at Buf
29.*Mark Sanchez NYJ at Jac
Note: Team owner prefers McElroy, GM and offensive coordinator prefer Sanchez this week. Rex Ryan will name a starter Wednesday. Sanchez named the starter for this week.
30.*John Skelton ARZ at Sea
Note: Skelton and not Lindley will start. ***Meanwhile, Kevin Kolb (ribs) is healing slowly and is still listed as questionable. ***
31.Chad Henne JAC vs. NYJ
32.Christian Ponder MIN vs. Chi

33.*Charlie Batch PIT vs. SD
Note: Great story, but there's no room for sentiment in the NFL. If Roethlisberger can make the throws in practice this week, he'll start and not Batch. It's official, Big Ben will start.

Note: Team owner prefers McElroy, GM and offensive coordinator prefer Sanchez this week. Mark Sanchez named the starter.

Note: Still getting the bulk of the carries and snaps, though Hillman was less of a ghost against the Bucs.
9.Chris Johnson TEN at Ind

12.*C.J. Spiller BUF vs. StL

30.*Jacquizz Rodgers ATL at Car

32.*Michael Turner ATL at Car
Note: (Elbow) Limited participant in practice Thursday. *** Listed as questionable, but expected to play. That said, I've downgraded him a few slots. ***
33.Fred Jackson BUF vs. StL
34.Beanie Wells ARZ at Sea
Note: Just 22 yards on 15 carries. Every move Whisenhunt makes turns to lead. (Knee) Limited practice Wednesday. *** Though he's listed as questionable, he's expected to play. ***

55.Brian Leonard CIN vs. Dal
