SATURDAY LINEUP NEWS

The biggest news to come out on Friday was the fact Peyton Hillis will be out on Sunday and for at least 2 weeks. This leaves Chris Ogbonnaya and newly signed Thomas Clayton as the only two options this week. Neither is worth your time or consideration as a pick up unless you are desperate. The Texans defense is a great play against an already anemic offense.

Darren McFadden will miss Sunday unless something drastically changes overnight. Mike Bush and Taiwan Jones become the two feature backs.

The news on Ryan Mathews has been negative since he has not practiced all week but Friday coaches believed he could be available Sunday. He will be a game time decision and put you in a bind. Make sure you check before kickoff on his status. I still see Mike Tolbert getting at least half or more of the carries regardless of Mathews status.

Kevin Kolb is officially Doubtful and it looks like John Skelton will get the nod. In 4 starts with Skelton, Larry Fitzgerald has racked up 348 yards with a score. Not a bad play regardless of the QB, but it’s not like you would bench Fitz anyway.

Felix Jones is officially OUT this game so Demarco Murray will continue as the starter and word is he will split carries evenly with Jones once healthy.

Sam Bradford is officially a game time decision and there were reports Mark Clayton would be activated off the PUP list as well. Still nothing official, but I think they are waiting on Bradford to return and they will activate him.

Plaxico Burress injured his back this week and is listed as a game time decision. He has a day to rest so I expect him to be available. This is a big divisional game which the Jets need all their horses on the field.

Andre Johnson has been reported as OUT for this game so expect a heavy dose of Arian Foster once again. 25 carries could be a reasonable projection which means plenty of points.
