Here is our Week 5 edition of Line-Up Locks. Here's a quick look at those who have favorable matchups (LOCK IN) and those who deserve a spot on your bench this week (LOCK OUT):
--Trent Edwards @ Ari
My take: The Cardinals gave up 6 TDs to Brett Favre. Edwards is good for at least two, maybe three against that kind of defense.
--Matt Schaub vs. Ind
My take: Schaub had two TDs last Sunday and I expect much of the same against an Indy defense that is vulnerable without Bob Sanders.
--Eli Manning vs. Sea
My take: Teams always seem to do better after a bye week. Be slightly concerned about Plaxico Burress' suspension this week, but I don't think it holds Eli's stats down much as I think Plax needs the Giants more than they need him.
--Jason Campbell @ Phi
My take: This should be another great game in the NFC East, but unlike against Dallas last week, I expect the Eagles to pressure Campbell all day.
--Carson Palmer @ Dal
My take: I don't think he's going to play again this week, after last week's surprise inactive. Even if he plays, this match up could be a train wreck.
--Ben Roethlisberger @ Jax
My take: He's hurt and so is his offensive line who can't keep him healthy. Oh, and he's now having to rely on Mewelde Moore and Najeh Davenport to run the ball. The Jaguars are going to try to take Big Ben out of the game and make the Steelers beat them on the ground.
--Matt Forte @ Det
My take: Forte is going to be a force all game against the worst rush defense in the NFL. I expect Forte to be one of the top scorers of the week. He's even catching passes now.
--Earnest Graham @ Den
My take: The Broncos defense is non-existent and Jon Gruden is going to attack the Broncos on the ground and Graham owners will be the beneficiaries.
--Jonathan Stewart vs. KC
My take: Expect a nice Daily Show from this John Stewart as he will once again score at least once versus a lousy Chiefs rush defense.
--Reggie Bush vs. Min
My take: If you're in a points per reception league, you'll want to keep Bush active, but from a rushing, yardage, scoring standpoint, the Vikings defense is still stout.
--Maurice Jones-Drew vs. Pit
My take: This will be a low-scoring affair and as always, you never know who's going to scalp a score away from MJD, including somebody named Montell Owens last Sunday. Frustrating.
--Edgerrin James vs. Buf
My take: Yes, he scored a couple of TDs last week, but he gained only 30 yards rushing. Take those TDs away and you have a risky pick. Don't risk it this week.
--Terrell Owens vs. Cin
My take: You likely weren't going to bench him, but this week, his frustrations will be over as the Bengals will cure all that ails him.
--Lee Evans @ Ari
My take: Did I mention that Brett Favre lit the Cardinals secondary up and so did Lavernues Coles (who by the way I picked as a lock in last week). I can't promise 3 TDs, but I can tell you to lock in Evans.
--DeSean Jackson vs. Was
My take: This guy has shown me enough and produced enough to convince me that he's worthy of a lock in, especially this week. Tougher matchup, but he'll still get his.
--Chad Johnson/TJ Housmanzadeh @ Dal
My take: If Carson Palmer plays, play TJ for sure, if Fitzpatrick is under center, stay away altogether.
--Donald Driver vs. Atl
My take: Aaron Rodgers is very questionable. If he doesn't play, bench Driver, for sure. Even if he plays, I don't like his chances this week.
--Santonio Holmes @ Jax
My take: As I mentioned, the Jags are likely to shut down the passing game because the Steelers are decimated with injuries in their backfield and on offensive line.
--Jason Witten @ Cin
My take: You know to start Witten every week, but this match up doesn't get any better than this one. If you have another solid TE and can move Witten to a flex or WR spot, do it because he will produce like an elite WR this week.
--Kevin Boss vs NyG
My take: Plaxico Burress' suspension helps Boss' value, plus Manning has started targeting his big TE more and more.
--Heath Miller @ Jax
My take: While I think the Steelers will struggle to score, they will at least get one TD and I think Miller will be the likely candidate for it.
--Vernon Davis vs. NE
My take: Not only should he not be in your lineup, he should be on your waiver wire, because he's done absolutely nothing and that trend will continue.
--Todd Heap vs. Ten
My take: He was on this list last week, and he deserved it. Dan Clasgens said it well, Heap belongs on the scrap heap.
--John Carlson @ NyG
My take: With Bobby Engram and Deion Branch back and with a tough match up against the Giants, I don't like Carlson too much this week.
--Dallas vs. Cin
--Chicago @ Det
--Jacksonville vs. Pitt.
--Tampa Bay @ Den
--Buffalo @ Ariz
--Minnesota @ NO
