A two-parter! First, there's a chat about Drew Brees last week and how the methodology for looking at players works. You can find that here.
The second part is your standard-issue matchups column, available here.

For some reason, ESPN thinks I'm an insider when I try to read this column. Only this column, though. This makes me happy.
So, Sidney Rice is not the #1 WR in Minnesota? I may bench him no matter what, but how is this decided - is it based on targets, the team's official depth chart, a guy with Sunday Ticket?
Cedrick Benson gets a +5% against the team that has allowed the 6th least amount of rushing yards. The Bears are a stout run defense, what am I missing?
They weren't perfect, but Tampa Bay's two youngest offensive linemen -- Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet -- shined in the Bucs' loss to Los Angeles.
