For most leagues, this is the week that decides who goes to the fantasy football playoffs this season. What players should be your clincher in the league?
Most Favorable Matchup: Drew Brees vs. Atlanta Falcons - Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick made scoring on Atlanta look easy, Drew Brees could do the same without question.
Other Top QB Options this week: Jason Campbell, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Schaub, Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Tony Romo
Quarterbacks to sit: Brett Favre, Eli Manning, Alex Smith
Most Favorable Matchup: Chris Johnson vs. St. Louis Rams - The top rusher in the league facing off against a team that, on average, allows over 150 yards per game to runningbacks. Chris Johnson is working toward a record, and will probably see a lot of the ball in an easy win.
Other good RB options: Maurice Jones-Drew, Ricky Williams, Ray Rice, Aidrian Peterson
Runningbacks to sit: Joseph Addai, Ryan Grant, Cedric Benson, DeAngelo Williams
Most Favorable Matchup: Derrick Mason vs. Detroit Lions - The Lions passing defense is so bad, that they even made Brady Quinn look good. Although Rice should do a lot of the work in Baltimore, Derrick Mason should get quite a few looks.
Other good receiver options: Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, Malcom Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Miles Austin, Wes Welker, Brandon Marshall, Pierre Garcon.
Most Favorable Matchup: Visanthe Shaincoe vs. Cincinatti Bengals - The Bengals have a very stout defense this year, and the Viking have turned into a passing team overnight. Favre will probably have to force a lot of passes in this one, normally a Tight End is your ace in the hole in those situations.
Other TEs to start: Heath Miller, Antonio Gates, Todd Heap, Jermichael Finley, Vernon Davis, Dallas Clark, Kellen Winslow
Most Favorable Matchup: Baltimore Ravens vs. Detroit Lions - The Lions have finally decided to save Matthew Stafford's life and let him rest out his injury. What will Detroit do against a defense that is already great?
Other good Defenses: Arizona, New England, Green Bay, New York (Jets), San Diego, Tennessee, Pittsburgh
