Vincent Jackson

Is he a sit this week? I know you're supposed to bench receivers when they're facing Nnamdi, but he was able to have one big game against Oakland last year, and one crap one. My best other option is Anthony Gonzalez.

One good game, one bad game last year against the Raiders for an avg of 100 yrds/gm along with a TD. Gonzalez didn't do anything close to that against the Jags last year. I say Jackson has more of the potential upside.

Asomugha's wearing a cast on his wrist, so he might not be so scary for a few weeks. Still, I'd have no problem starting Gonzalez.

You also don't know if Asomugha will be on Chambers or Gates. The Chargers have a deep offense and the Raiders best player is hurt. I wouldn't be shocked if the Chargers dropped 42 on Oakland. Gonzalez never really caught on last year even though all signs pointed to him doing it. I disagree with KUBIAK on him a bit. I think for all intents and purposes, Dallas Clark is the number 2 guy in Indy. I'd recommend going with Jackson.
