Ryan Wallace, Columbia, MO: I am without Priest Holmes this week (again), so I need my QB to step up and take charge. I have Donovan McNabb and Jake Plummer. McNabb has burned me before this season and faces Washington. Plummer has gone nuts in his last few starts, but he doesn't play well on the road. He faces a less-than-stellar Saints D this week.

Engel: The McNabb/Terrell Owens duo has been the most unstoppable combo in the league this year, and makes the Philadelphia QB a near must-start every week. Yes, Washington has a fine pass defense, but who can contain Owens? Plummer, however, faces a New Orleans defense that hasn't stopped anyone all year long. It's difficult to recommend benching McNabb, but we will do it here.
