Last week, I presupposed that a child named “Playoff Implications” grew up, joined the Army, and was promoted to “Major”. While that’s probably a sexy example of the word-play I bring to you all day long (and your mothers), if last week had major playoff implications, this week we have, um, general playoff implcations? Maybe Admiral? Sure, I don’t know Navy Maritime Ranks, or to be honest, much of anything, but I can say that without a doubt, we are in for some interesting football the next three weeks. With roughly 56 teams still in the hunt, the race to the finish line starts today. And wouldn’t you know it, the same could be said in Fantasy Football as well. Tie-in alert: FULL RED. Can the Dolphins stay alive by beating the Patriots? (HAHA.) What about the Texans in the same scenario against the Colts? (Eh, maybe.) The Chargers have a chance to take hold of the Wild Card if they beat the Broncos, led by a new found rushing attack to mask
Chad Henne’s Peyton Manning’s waffling duck attack. And then there’s the two spotlight games, 49ers vs. Seahawks and Cowboys vs. Eagles. While it might be fun to see if Pete Carroll will run the score up past a 100 against San Francisco, there are some derptastic possibilities in a game featuring Tony Romo (example) and Mark Sanchez (example). And these two… strong in the derp they are…
Week 14 Rankings have been updated for today’s games for all your roster needs. You can check them out here.
Julio Jones “can barely run” and will only be a decoy. So you probably should keep that in mind when setting your line-ups. Against a Steelers secondary, I’m assuming this means at least 120 yards and a touchdown. That being said, I’d recommend starting Harry Douglas everywhere.
Montee Ball is officially out for the year and has been placed on the IR.
The rankings still represent if Ryan Mathews does play, but it’s looking very doubtful that he does, so keep that in mind. Brandon Oliver will most likely be the guy.
