Added late: I probably should have mentioned this with the original post, but my weekly All-Fantasy team will be comprised of players who particularly impress me, not just those with the highest point totals. For instance, Donovan McNabb was the highest-scoring quarterback in most formats, but he did not make the team.

My All-Fantasy team (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D/ST) for Sunday:

Chad Pennington, Jets- He threw for 319 yards and a pair of TDs against the Titans and is a guy who might have easily gone undrafted in your leagues.

Frank Gore, 49ers- A sleeper for many fantasy owners going into the season, Gore had 87 yards rushing and two TDs to go along with 83 yards receiving against the Cardinals.

Warrick Dunn, Falcons- After setting a career-high with 1,416 yards in 2005, Dunn got off to a strong start against the Panthers, rushing for 132 yards on 29 carries.

Donte' Stallworth, Eagles- His debut with Philadelphia was a huge success as the former Saints wideout had six catches for 141 yards and a touchdown.

Laveranues Coles, Jets- He was the day's leading receiver with eight catches for 153 yards against the Titans (Two Jets on the All-Fantasy team after week one...who would have thought?).

Tony Gonzalez, Chiefs- Some fantasy owners predicted a down year from him in 2006, but Gonzalez had 10 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals.

Jeff Wilkins, Rams- The St. Louis kicker had six field goals (he actually could have had seven, but missed one), including a 51-yarder.

Ravens defense- A shutout, a touchdown, three sacks and three interceptions. Now, if only Haloti Ngata could have stayed in-bounds and returned his pick for a TD.

Monday night picks

I advise you to go with the opposite of what I say based on my performance in week one. Anyway, here they are...

Vikings at Redskins

With Clinton Portis banged up, I don't see Washington's offense putting up a ton of points against the Vikings. Minnesota's defensive line is talented and should be able to pressure Mark Brunell. I think the Redskins could easily win, but look for a low-scoring game that comes down to the wire.

The pick: Minnesota (+4.5)

Chargers at Raiders

Even though I might have to start him on my fantasy team next week after the Trent Green injury, I can't see myself picking Aaron Brooks to lead a team to victory...ever. The Chargers defense should be able to limit Oakland's run game, and you can count on a couple Brooks mistakes late.

The pick: San Diego (-3.5)
