RB Matt Forte - Bears
Week 10: @ Green Bay

While no one is too sure who's playing quarterback for the Bears on Sunday, Matt Forte will see the ball come his way a lot regardless. Forte has morphed into a fantasy star as a rookie. He leads the Bears in rushing and receptions and has totaled seven touchdowns so far.

The Packers rank 28th against the run, allowing nearly 155 yards rushing per game. Seeing as its quarterback will either be a) bad or b) banged up, Chicago should be set to give Forte a full workload in Lambeau.

QB Kurt Warner - Cardinals
Week 10: @ Seattle

Warner has been on fire lately, proving to be a valuable late round steal in most fantasy leagues. He ranks second in the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns, and has kept his interception total way down. If Arizona wins the NFC West, which they should, is Warner an MVP candidate?

On Sunday he goes up against the league's second worst pass defense in Seattle. The Seahawks are allowing 252 passing yards per game and have surrendered 14 touchdowns through the air. Expect Warner to be in for a big day.

WR Roddy White - Falcons
Week 10: Denver

Matt Ryan's emergence in Atlanta has meant good things for White, a former first round draft pick who has fully realized his potential this season. White ranks second in the NFL in receiving yards and has six touchdowns. On Sunday he'll face a putrid Broncos pass defense that stacks up as one of the league's worst.

Other matchups of interest: Greg Jennings vs Chicago, DeAngelo Williams vs Detroit, Peyton Manning vs Houston.
