2011 Week 7: Favorable Matchups Based on Fantasy Points Against

Last year yours truly was one of the first in the industry to provide you with weekly fantasy points against stats so that you could be more informed on start/sit decisions.  Now that everyone has caught onto that bandwagon, I intend on leaving them to do the hard leg work in producing the raw data.

Here at Chinstrap Ninja’s we will list who you should be starting based on the analyzed data.

The fantasy points against stats can be found here courtesy of Yahoo Sports.

    What can I expect from Fred Davis? I was going to start him over Ed Dickson but ur article made me think twice.

    Krause:

    Fred Davis seemed to have good rapport with Rex Grossman at quarterback. Since John Beck is starting, I would give it a wait and see approach on Davis this week and give the nod to Ed Dickson with the favorable tight end matchup this week.
