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?
