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 - Matt Hasselbeck, Seahawks: No longer an option every week, but Hasselbeck won't get a better matchup than this week's vs. the Rams. He had his best game of the season - 316 yards, 2 TDs - last time out against St. Louis. Also: Eli Manning, Giants.

RB - Domanick Davis, Texans: Davis loves to see that horseshoe - he has eight TDs in five career games vs. Indy. Even with a bum knee, he'll manage to limp into the end zone at least once. Also: Steven Jackson, Rams; Mike Anderson, Broncos; Cedric Benson, Bears.

WR - Jerry Porter, Raiders: Porter had 135 yards and three TDs last time he faced the Broncos, and he has 13 catches for 191 yards and three scores in his past two games. Will Porter score in Week 10? Magic-eight ball says (shake shake shake) - It is decidedly so. Also: Eric Moulds, Bills.

TE - Jeremy Shockey, Giants: My trusty TI-82 is telling me that Shockey is a statistical lock to score this week. He has a TD in four of his past five, and 10 of the 15 passing scores allowed by the Vikings this season have gone to tight ends. Also: Tony Gonzalez, Chiefs; L.J. Smith, Eagles.

K - Josh Brown, Seahawks: Just like nearly every player involved in the Rams-Seahawks matchup, Brown is money is the fantasy bank - which differs from the real bank in that it does not have a drivethru window. In six career meetings with the Rams, Brown has totaled 56 points.

DEF - Washington Redskins: The Bears are an obvious pick here vs. the Niners, but the Bucs aren't scaring anyone with Chris Simms at QB and the struggling Cadillac Williams in the backfield

SIT 'EM DOWN

QB - Mark Brunell, Redskins: It was fun while it lasted, but Brunell has come back to earth with no TD passes in the past two games, and he doesn't figure to get well this week in Tampa Bay. Also: Drew Bledsoe, Cowboys.

RB - Reuben Droughns, Browns: Last week, he provided a feel-good story of Hallmark Hall of Fame caliber - getting arrested for DUI, but apologizes to his teammates, then puts up 189 total yards in a stirring victory (All together now - Reu-BEN! Reu-BEN!). This week, he gets a reality check in Pittsburgh. Also: Kevin Jones, Lions; Curtis Martin, Jets.

WR - Hines Ward, Steelers: No knock on Hines, but there's a chance the Steelers won't let Charlie Batch attempt a single pass against the Browns. Dear Ben: Get well soon. Also: Laveranues Coles, Jets.

TE - Randy McMichael, Dolphins: Puzzling - McMichael had TDs in the Dolphins first four games but hasn't scored since Week 4 or topped 30 receiving since Week 2. I blame Ricky Williams.

K - John Hall, Redskins: Back? Yes. Healthy? Doubtful. Hall uncorked a couple of high school quality kicks last week in his return from a quad injury, and he doesn't figure to get many looks vs. the Bucs.

DEF - Dallas Cowboys: Big D's D handled Philly the first time around, but this time they hit the road to face an Eagles team that's on the ropes. Dallas has allowed 87 points in four road games this season.

Byes: Cincinnati, New Orleans, San Diego, Tennessee
