Start ‘Em

QB: Tim Tebow (DEN)- Let’s be clear, Tebow is an awful real life quarterback who appears completely overmatched at the moment. Fortunately for fantasy players, his real life value doesn’t matter. Tebow’s rushing  ability inflates his fantasy numbers, and the Raiders 24th ranked pass defense that will oppose Denver this week is a nice bonus. The Broncos should get down early, which means Tebow will get plenty of opportunities to wing it around.

Sit ‘Em

QB: Ben Roethlisberger (PIT)

RB: Chris Johnson (TEN)- After the self entitled CJ2K failed to produce against the abysmal Colts run defense last week, you can no longer put him anywhere near your starting lineup. The running back who awed fans the past three years is nowhere to be found in 2011. Johnson will try to find holes against the Bengals second ranked run defense this Sunday, which means he’s sure to flounder yet again.
