It took a tragic injury to a rolling Chicago Bears team for Marion Barber to step forward as a fantastic fantasy option. He joins a few other stars as options you need to target to power through the playoffs.
It's time for a great many of you fine fantasy owners to make the final push to the playoffs. Every single NFL team has been battered to a pulp for weeks, and that is not relegated to the pros.
By now, even the finely-tuned teams drafted with the wit of a million Mel Kipers will have had a few players fall to malaise or injury. Well, I in no way feel sorry for you.
I join those teams that put a great deal of faith in Chris Johnson, who decided to play ball when most of his season was trash. But, I made the necessary adjustments to make amends for such travesties. Now, you need to do the same at the most important time in the season for fantasy players.
The waiver-wire has nearly been picked clean of its wealth. This is where we come in for this week's most available solutions.
There is no reason to be caught on Saturday night without an option due to last-minute probables turning into doubtfuls. I know how that feels and don't want you folks to be caught with that sick feeling.
Let's first have a moment of silence for the Chicago Bears. Their season may be over, as their two best offensive players take a breather to the sidelines due to injury.
Their demise is your gain as Marion Barber steps to the forefront as a running back about to see a surge in his production.
Jump into the Barber waters because they are just fine. While you're at it, consider several other players for what will certainly be a successful playoff push. Enjoy.
