This is the story of one of America’s great unsung heroes. I mean you’ve seen him but you never knew who he was. You’ve cheered for him and cried for him and women have wanted to die for him. But did he ever get any credit or the girl? No! He’s what we call the “Stuntman” and the reason I’m talking so fondly about him is, well because it’s me, Colt Seaver. Anyway, picture work isn’t wall-to-wall employment so maybe you wonder how a guy keeps his head together? Well, one way is to wait by the phone and wait and wait. The other is to take an occasional job with the court system of the United States of America where a man is considered innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately sometimes a lot of these people get out of jail on what we call bail and they’d run like hell!…and that’s where I come in. I sometimes pick up rent money trying to find them and bring them back to justice.


Here are Colt’s “must-starts” followed by three players to start and three to bench (RB edition) along with a recipe for Vietnamese grilled chicken salad baguettes that can be made indoors or outside.


Colt Seaver’s ”Must Starts” week 9


“Well, I’m not the kind to kiss and tell, But I’ve been seen with Farrah. I’ve never been with anything less than a nine, so fine.”

“I’ve never spent much time in school, But I taught ladies plenty. It’s true I hire my body out for pay, Hey Hey.”

“I might fall from a tall buildin’,I might roll a brand new car.’Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that made Redford such a star.”

Depending on your league settings, chances are that you have some kind of combination of the above for your starting lineup. These are the top options for this week and it is hard to make a case to bench any of them. It’s when you get into the players not on this list where it gets tricky.

For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. To get to this number and above, you will need at minimum 12 points from each of your starters (a little more from your QB and a few from your kickers and defense). This is the threshold for my IN/OUT predictions.








C.J. Spiller @ NE

The Bills say they are committed to getting C.J. more involved. “We’ve got to get” C.J. Spiller more touches said Ryan Fitzpatrick. Both the he and the head coach and are on record about Spiller’s light workload and getting him the ball. I would think so as he is averaging 7.2 yards per carry. Last year at New England he didn’t have to split with F-JAX and had 13 carries for 60 yards and four catches for 40 yards and a touchdown. This year he will do even better – timeshare or not.


Michael Turner @ N.O.

We all know by now that the Saints’ run defense is not very good. They won last week despite giving up over 200 rushing yards for the fourth time this year! Turner “The Burner” will match his 100 yards from last week and then some. Start with confidence (this week).


Rashad Jennings vs. IND

Taking over for “What Would Jones-Drew”, a couple of weeks ago, I expected him to be rolling and provide a boost to the teams that used their low waiver priority to get him. 14 points over two games doesn’t cut it. This week he gets to play against a Colts defense that have allowed 10 TDs. What did Jones Drew against them in week 3? He only rushed for 177 yards, a couple of catches and a score! More good news for Rashad, the Colts are giving up over 4 yards per carry lately. This could be that breakout game you are looking for.




Jamaal Charles @ PIT

I think Charles needs some meds. Or at least you do if you have him on your team. When he is up (68 combined FF points in three games) he is up. When he is down (18 combined FF points in all others) he is down. Ohh and he hasn’t scored since week 4.  If he does this week it will be from the 1 yard line after a pass interference penalty in the endzone on Keenan Lewis. Jamaal had a Ja nice start to the season, but in this game it is all about, “What have you done for me lately?”. The answer is not much and you may have to consider someone else as your RB1 this week.


Felix Jones @ PHI

DeMarco looks to be on De Sideline again this week, making Fragile Felix an intriguing option against a porous Eagles rush defense. While the E…A….G……L……E…..S… “WE CAN SPELL”…Eagles have allowed a ton of yardage to opposing backs, they have kept them out of the endzone. Playing at home with some stir crazy fans ready to take their misery out on anyone with a star on their clothing, and a pissed off defense, I don’t see Jones making out of this game on his feet.


Shonn Greene @ SEA

Shonn, “Don’t call me Shawn” has lived up to the hype lately, but the Jets pass offense stinks meaning the Seahawks will play run all day. They did give up some points to Gore and All Day, but Shonn will not have much Greene ahead of him in the Pacific Northwest. Temper expectations and consider benching.





Vietnamese Grilled Chicken Salad Baguettes


This recipe was adopted to be grilled, but you could just as easily use store-bought rotisserie chicken. The key is the pickled carrot and onion “salad” that tops the sandwich.



4 Boneless Chicken Breast halves, skin on
2 Tbs white Vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 Garlic Clove, crushed
1 Red Chile de árbol pepper, chopped fine*
1 Large Carrot, grated
1 White Onion, sliced fine
4 Tbs Mayo
1 Tbs Lime juice
1/2 tsp five-spice powder
1 handful fresh Cilantro
4 Tbs roasted and chopped cashews or peanuts (optional)
2 baguettes, halved and sliced lengthwise (halfway)



Combine vinegar, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and chile* and mix well. Add the grated carrot and onion, mix well and set aside.

Set up grill for direct heat cooking over medium-high heat.

Place a griddle suitable for outdoor cooking on the grill and pre-heat. Place the chicken, skin side down, on the griddle and cook for 8 minutes for until the skin is golden.

Turn over and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until cooked through. Allow to cool and then shred the meat.

Combine the mayo with the lime juice and the 5-spice powder and mix well.

Lightly toast the bread on the griddle. Spread the mayo mixture onto one side of the bread. Top with shredded chicken and then with the carrot and onion salad.

garnish with cilantro, and nuts (optional)


* Note: The Chile de árbol pepper can be traded with Cayenne pepper or Pequin pepper. The seeds and white arches can be removed from the pepper to tone down its hotness. Care should be taken to avoid touching the eyes after handling this pepper; hands must be washed thoroughly after handling the pepper or its seeds.
