Alright men, time to focus on football!

After a week of metal and hard rock overload, I have finally shaken off my “bangover” enough to get back to football. So let’s take a look at Week 14 before we get to play-off options.

For about the 90th game in a row, the Titan’s Chris Johnson scored multiple TDs and led the league in fantasy points for RBs. Okay, I’m exaggerating just a bit, but my bitterness over ignorantly trading him away this off season keep’s coming back like the nasty itch you feel for week’s after poor judgment sex on spring break. Seller’s remorse.

The big news for play-off bound fantasy teams are Quinton Ganther and Arian Foster . The Redskins will be riding Ganther the rest of the season and the Texans will do the same with Foster. Sunday Ganther notched 93 total yards and two TDs. Foster had 83 yards splitting carries with Chris Brown and Ryan Moats . Foster has been announced as the feature back for the season’s final three weeks making him a nice start during your playoff runs.

Kevin Smith is now out for the season in Detroit, making Maurice Morris a potential playoff helper, but I wouldn’t expect much from him.
