It is time to make a playoff push, and here are some players to consider starting or sitting this week to put your team over the top.

START
Marques Colston (WR, Saints) - Expect the Saints to tear apart the abysmal Raiders defense through the air.

Carson Palmer (QB, Raiders) - And look for the Raiders to do the same to the equally awful Saints defense.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis (RB, Bengals) - The Bengals should rely on their run game to get an early lead and maintain it against the Chiefs.

SIT
DeSean Jackson (WR, Eagles) - New Eagles QB Nick Foles seemed to shy away from Jackson last week.

Philip Rivers (QB, Chargers) - I'm ready to give up on Rivers entirely, and his matchup against the Broncos is a tough one.

Rashad Jennings (RB, Jaguars) - Jennings hasn't looked good against normal defenses. Definitely stay away from him against the Texans.
