(Doc’s Note: Our weekly contest is in full swing and we need a few more managers for our week 6 FanDuel league. Do that thing you do)

Quarterbacks

So far Polamalu’s protective hair shell has kept him from any season-ending injuries, which means the Steelers defense is about as good as there is in the NFL. If Ray Rice was full strength, Flacco owners could hold out hope that Pittsburgh would focus on shutting down the run, opening room for Flacco to find some yards, but it looks like Rice won’t be 100% if he plays.

Standard fantasy article intro/disclaimer: Just because a player is listed as a “Start” doesn’t mean you should necessarily play them over a player listed as a “Sit”.

Before jumping into an analysis of the Lions’ #2 pick, it’s worth noting that as we make our way through the first round of the draft, we’ll get better and more reliable information closer to the draft date. Each team’s report should be considered in terms of when it was written and the information available at that point — and of course, as more information is revealed, we’ll do our best to update or append the earlier reports.

Before we look at the games, I want to say thanks to Doc for stepping in for 3 weeks while I closed and moved into my first house. Like Pedro Cerrano, you’re in good hands with Doc. Regular season fantasy leagues are over, but there’s a lot of fantasy playoff leagues as well, and if you haven’t joined one yet, be sure to check out our Sporting News playoff league and/or our playoff challenge at NFL.com.
