Even with your top players, there are instances in which you might consider benching them. Heck, Curtis Martin faces the Patriots this week. Might it actually be better to use Brian Westbrook, who faces the Browns?

And there are always trade offers rolling in for your top players. Someone wants to send you Matt Hasselbeck and Torry Holt for Daunte Culpepper. Should you go for it? Culpepper's value might be higher than ever right now.

While it's perfectly fine to consider these scenarios, ultimately, there are some players who must remain in your lineup and on your roster. These are the "untouchables". The players who you shouldn't trade or bench in most scenarios. Unless you're lucky enough to have two of them.
