Power Players: Week 10
SI.com's David Sabino and James Quintong select their ultimate fantasy lineups each week, with one twist -- they can use any player once and only once during the season. Play along with us on the Fantasy Football Player Pick 'Em game and join the SI.com Power Players group.
Michael Vick, Falcons
Jon Kitna, Lions
The Falcons are out for blood after laying an egg in Detroit. Vick goes up against a Cleveland defense that regularly gets torn to ribbons by great skill players.
He has thrived in Mike Martz's offense in Detroit, and now he goes up against a 49ers defense that hasn't stopped anyone other than the Vikings last week.
Mike Bell, Broncos
Steven Jackson, Rams
Warning: We should monitor the Tatum Bell situation closely and switch to him (if possible) if he starts, but one Bell, likely Mike, will torch the hapless Raiders.
How in the world did he get 13 receptions last week? He has emerged as one of the best multi-threat backs in the league and should stay hot against rival Seattle.
Kevin Jones, Lions
Anthony Thomas, Bills
Jones had a superb game against Atlanta to mark three straight big games and five of six. He's a top-10 back and climbing the charts. The 49ers have no answer.
The Colts still can't stop the run, and the A-Train, filling in for the injured Willis McGahee, could chug along for some decent yardage like old times.
Roy Williams, Lions
Steve Smith, Panthers
Williams is making many who predicted a big year for him look smart. The Niners have allowed the second most passing TDs in the league (tied with Detroit).
Since returning from a hamstring injury, Smith has at least six receptions in every game. He has thrived against the Bucs and should again Monday night.
Braylon Edwards, Browns
Antonio Bryant, 49ers
The Browns' new offensive philosophy has meant more chances for the athletic and talented former first rounder. The Falcons have stopped no one recently.
The Lions still have their problems stopping the pass, which means Bryant could be in for a good game, as long as Alex Smith finds his early-season form.
Chris Baker, Jets
Chris Cooley, Redskins
I love taking a chance on a player coming off a bye in which he has been the subject of praise from his head coach. That means something's brewing against the Pats.
While the passing game is in flux, Cooley has caught a TD pass in three straight games. He could make it four in a row against an iffy Eagles secondary.
Mike Vanderjagt, Cowboys
Jason Hanson, Lions
A gamble after his potential game-winner was blocked against the 'Skins, but he'll recover against a Cardinals team still reeling from their Bears collapse.
Detroit can score at will, especially against a porous 49ers defense. When that happens, the veteran Hanson will be in line for a number of kicks.
SI coverboy Ray Lewis is leading a unit that leads the league in interceptions, is fifth in sacks and second in defensive TDs. Titans rookie QB Vince Young doesn't stand a chance.
Now they're giving up their share of points, but that should change this week against the lowly Raiders. Will Champ Bailey get interceptions or can they sack Andrew Walter nine times?
