Schaub has thrown for 300 yards in three of his past four games. He's also been deadly against the Bengals in the past, completing 24-of-28 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns against zero interceptions in Houston's most recent meeting with Cincy.
The dynamic wideout proved his pedigree yet again last week with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. The Bengals have been stingy through the air, conceding just five touchdowns in 2009, but Johnson remains a must-start.
Walter is somewhat of a barometer for Houston's passing offense -- he's post strong numbers if the Texans are clicking through the air. Still, he's the team's third pass-catching option after Johnson and the tight end Daniels, so only start him in a pinch.
Benson wasn't exactly a popular play last week given Baltimore's stingy defense and his nagging hip injury. But he became the first opposing back in 40 games to rush for 100 yards against the Ravens. If you sat him, don't make the same mistake twice.
Coles was targeted just once in Cincy's victory over the Ravens and didn't make a catch. He's still capable of big numbers but until he shows you something, he's a better fit for the bench -- or better yet the waiver wire.
The Bengals give up a ton of yards through the air but they've only allowed five passing touchdowns in sprinting out to a 4-1 start. Consider them a low-end option if you can't do any better off the wire.
