Is targets a more useful statistic than simple receptions for projecting wide receivers? Will Baltimore and Tennessee players rebound this week? Can DeMarco Murray and Jackie Battle keep it up? Answers to these questions and more in this week's fantasy matchups column.

How good is the Baltimore defense, and can they stay that good for the entire season? We look at little bit at some weaknesses that could become a problem... although probably not this week. By the way, Baltimore is the second team to be first in both run and pass defense DVOA through six weeks. The first was the 1997 San Francisco 49ers.

In this week's column, we use DVOA to identify the easiest and toughest remaining fantasy schedules. Not that anyone's roster is overflowing with them, but the stats say to avoid Browns players from here out.

In this week's fantasy matchups column, our advice is basically to start your Cowboys, start your Bengals, and sit your Texans. Yes, that includes Arian Foster if you're brave enough to pull the trigger.

The Lions' pass offense has been impressive in their 4-0 start, but what about that 30th-ranked running game? This week's Monday Night Football column looks at how the disparity between the two raises red flags about Detroit's Super Bowl prospects.

You'll want to be starting the Falcons passing game members this week. And your Saints running backs. That plus another Philip Rivers sighting!

Indianapolis' season is basically over at this point with Peyton Manning gone, but the Colts have also sustained a number of other injuries this season. This is not a one-year trend in the slightest -- the Colts lead the NFL in Adjusted Games Lost over the past five seasons. Why is that?

Over at Coltzilla, staff writer Jacob Crocker does a bang-up job providing charting-style statistical reports after each game. Especially interesting -- at least to me -- is the weekly info about each quarterback's average time from snap to pass. Kind-of-shocking revelation: Colt McCoy got rid of the ball in Week 2 about as fast as Peyton Manning did on his average pass in 2010. Not-so-shocking revelation: A musket fires faster than Kerry Collins.
The reports seem to come out each Friday, so I guess that means Crocker's breakdown of the Steelers game will be up on the site later today. The link above is to his Week 2 analysis. Here's Week 1.

Is this finally the week that Rashard Mendenhall owners are rewarded? Plus, don't expect your Ravens to be high scorers in Week 4.
