Packers – Moving Up
The Packer really laid an egg versus the Cowboys but you cannot ignore their upcoming schedule.  This week they face a Raiders team that could see a rookie QB under center and then they follow that up versus a Rams team that has an OL that has been abused at times this year.  Week 16 offers up a shot at Rex Grossman and if the Packers can jump out to a lead well you know what happens when Rex has to try and force things.  For those with week 17 Super Bowl match-ups what is not to like about facing the Detroit Lions and their rag tag offensive line.  A slight concern exists if Woodson and/or KGB are out for any length of time.

Bengals – Moving Up
The Bengals have been a top 15 defense over the past three weeks.  However, most leagues are starting their playoffs and that means the future is what matters most.  That is why the Bengals are an attractive option when you see that their next four games are against the Rams, 49ers, Cleveland & Miami.   

Cardinals – Moving Up
The Cardinals have put up two great games in the last three weeks.  Antrel Rolle has been thrust back into the starting lineup due to injury and Rolle is an aggressive corner that will get burnt on occasion because he will try to jump a route but I am sure that fantasy owners can live with a long bomb or two if Rolle can take a pick to the house.  With match-ups versus Atlanta in week, 16 and the Rams in week 17 fantasy owners should have no issues starting the Cardinals in those two important fantasy weeks. 

Chiefs – Moving Down
The Chiefs have put up pedestrian fantasy numbers for the past five weeks.  To make matters worse Donnie Edwards left the game this past week with a hamstring issue.  If Edwards is able to play this Sunday, it will be his 150th consecutive start.  The Chiefs have the defensive personnel to turn things around quickly so make sure you still keep an eye on them.  If things start to look, better defensively for the Chiefs there is a chance that they could vault back up the rankings with match-ups vs Detroit in week 16 and the Jets in week 17.
