Justin: C.J. Spiller, RB, Buffalo Bills
“What?! C.J. Spiller?! The same C.J. Spiller as the consensus first-round draft pick?? I’m supposed to bench C.J. SPILLER!?”
David: Every single Giants player @ Kansas City Chiefs
No one could have seen the polar opposite trajectories of these two teams coming into the season. Pundits expected the Chiefs to be better, but heck, they only won 2 games all of last year. The perennially competitive Giants are absolutely trending downward and have some analysts questioning when they will win their first game. Well, it certainly won’t be this week as the Chiefs defense leads the league in sacks and ranks fifth in passing yards allowed. The Giants have a dismal run game and will be forced to pass the ball often, playing right into the Chiefs’ hands.
If you have to start Victor Cruz, then go ahead, but be forewarned about every other player on this roster.
Matt: Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals take on the Cleveland Browns who rank eighth against the run this year. Last week, they held Adrian Peterson to 88 yards on 25 carries. The Browns defense is no slouch and I would advise against starting Bernard this week.
