Here we are Week 7! Time to step it up and separate the true championship challengers from the pretenders as we start the back half of our fantasy season.
As we head into our Week 7 IDP LB Rankings I am starting Paul Posluszny. Poz has finally stepped up after a slow start and he now faces a Baltimore team that works the middle of the field a lot and also will run the ball all day if they can. He will be very busy this Monday night.
I am also starting Derrick Johnson this week. The Raiders will go run-heavy as they try to incorporate a brand new Carson Palmer into the fold and/or protect Kyle Boller from dooming them. I expect DJ to carry the torch and rack up a ton of tackles as this happens. Also, Palmer may rely on his TE Kevin Boss early on as he gets acquainted to things. If so, DJ has a chance to help in the passing game too.
I am definitely benching Lawrence Timmons until further notice. He has fallen way off since his shift to OLB and nobody wants James Harrison to retunr more quickly than Timmons owners. Keep him on your bench until he shows something at OLB or until Harrison makes it back.
