Fantasy Football Toolbox Start 'Em-
QB-Matt Cassell-Although the Chiefs won their first game of the season last week, Cassel wasn't at his best. Look for him to bounce back this week when he faces the San Diego Chargers.

RB-Laurence Maroney-Can it really be possible that Laurence Maroney might finally get a real chance to be a fantasy starter? Last week with Fred Taylor already out with an injury and Sammy Morris going down in the first quarter, Maroney stepped up and carried the ball 16 times for 123 yards and 1 touchdown to go along with 3 catches for 10 yards. So follow Morris's injury status this week and if he is out, then Maroney should be in your line-up.

RB-Ricky Williams-Even though Ricky is splitting carries with Brown, he has rushed for over 50 yards in 4 out of 5 games, to go along with 11 catches for 132 yards and has scored a touchdown in 3 out of 5 games. It seems it doesn't matter who the Dolphins play and if they are winning or losing, they will run the ball as often as they can. Look for another solid week from Ricky Williams.

WR-Miles Austin-Even if Roy Williams is back this week, Austin will be staying in the starting line-up and Romo will continue to look to him to make big plays. Get Austin in your line-up this week.

WR-Austin Collie-It took Collie a few weeks to get going, but over his last 2 games he has 14 receptions for 172 yards and 3 touchdowns as he gains Peyton Manning's confidence. This week the Colts face the St. Louis Rams, who can't seem to stop very much these days. Until Gonzalez comes back from injury, Collie should be a good start

Interesting that Giant Mike is starting Marion Barber over Larry Johnson this week. As he knows all too well, starting the right player could mean the difference between a win and a loss. I just hope he doesn't spend the weekend agonizing over who is the smarter play.

For now it is changed, but I am going to agonize over it until the games start.

I think either way I am going to beat you, so in the end it probably wont matter much..
