Bears AT Cardinals
A main reason for the Bears' offensive resurgence, Berrian has 19 catches for
413 yards and TDs in four of five games. Arizona has trouble with burners,
surrendering 100-yard games to the speedy likes of Darrell Jackson and Torry
Holt in four of its five games. Berrian should follow in those footsteps.
Jets VS. Dolphins
Still among the league's top receivers, Coles was held in check last week
(three catches for 19 yards) by an all-consuming Jaguars defense. However,
Coles has an excellent track record against Miami, scoring seven touchdowns in
nine meetings. He'll add to that total this week.
Buccaneers VS. Bengals
That noise you heard Sunday afternoon was a collective sigh from fantasy owners
who have Bucs on their team after they saw that Bruce Gradkowski is a capable
NFL quarterback. Smith, who had five catches and one TD last week, was one of
the rookie's favorite targets against the Saints and should continue to be a
safety valve against Cincinnati.
Panthers AT Ravens
Carolina won't score often in this defensive struggle, but Steve Smith &
Co. will move the ball enough to get into scoring position in one of the
friendliest venues for opposing kickers. Kasay has made at least two field
goals in four of the Panthers' five games this year and is among the NFL's top
scorers through Week 5, with 38 points.
The key to this matchup is the condition of Chiefs tailback Larry Johnson, who
left last week's game against Arizona with a sprained neck. If he's not 100%,
the Steelers could pitch a shutout against a Kansas City offense that's heavily
reliant on its star. Even if Johnson is in form, don't expect Pittsburgh to
