Every Thursday, That Fantasy Guy looks at some of the best and worst fantasy football plays of the week in the Fantasy Forecast.

LINE 'EM UP

QB - Mark Brunell, Redskins: Don't look now, but Brunell is partying like it's 1999 with 653 yards, five TDs and no interceptions in his past two games. The good times will keep rolling against San Francisco's league-worst pass defense.

RB - LaMont Jordan, Raiders: Jordan's not happy that he had only 12 carries last week, and Randy Moss isn't likely to play this weekend. This sets up as a huge day for the ex-Terp against Buffalo's 30th-ranked run defense.

WR - Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals: Arizona figures to put it up plenty vs. a Titans defense that has given up the most passing TDs in the NFL (13). If Fitzgerald's lucky, he'l be matched up against outspoken, oft-beaten rookie corner Adam 'Pac Man'Jones. Ditto for Anquan Boldin.

TE -Bubba Franks, Packers: Franks is a stone-cold lock to score against a Vikings defense that has allowed at least one TE touchdown in seven consecutive games. Plus, you gotta respect a man named Bubba.

K -Jay Feely, Giants: This guy's got my full support after I watched him shout down insufferable 'Cold Pizza' co-host Skip Bayless last week. Not that I watch 'Cold Pizza' - I was just flipping through the channels, I swear.

DEF - Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons are banged up on defense, but not as badly as Vinny and the offensively challenged Jets, who just lost All-Pro center Kevin Mawae for the season. Atlanta ranks second in the league with 20 sacks, and the Jets have allowed 21. That's about as good as it gets in a week in which Tampa Bay, Carolina and Jacksonville are all on bye.

SIT 'EM DOWN

QB - Trent Green, Chiefs: Green has yet to top 250 yards in a game and can't be counted on as an every-week starter any more. Against a good Miami pass defense, this is a week to turn elsewhere.

RB - Rudi Johnson, Bengals: Rudi hasn't cracked 100 yards since Week 1, and he's starting to lose carries to Chris Perry. He faces a Steelers defense that has yet to surrender more than 77 yards to a running back this season.

WR - Joe Horn, Saints: It was bad enough when Horn was missing games. But last week he played, aggravated his hamstring injury and didn't get in the box score. Don't even chance it.

TE - Steve Heiden, Browns: Heiden had his fun with two TDs in Week 2, but he's been a non-factor since. He's also sharing snaps with Aaron Shea. He also plays for the Browns. None of these things bode well.

K - Jose Cortez, Cowboys: Cortez ranks eighth among kickers in scoring, though he did miss two tries last week before kicking the game-winner in OT. Seattle has given up a league-high 13 FGs, which only means they're due to shut a kicker out for a change.

DEF - Dallas Cowboys: The Cowboys defense has been fantastic of late, but they're hitting the road to face a Seattle squad that ranks first in total offense and dropped 39 points on the 'Boys at Qwest Field last season.

Byes: Carolina, Jacksonville, New England, Tampa Bay
