This week is likely the last week of regular season play for

most fantasy football leagues. The one problem most fantasy players

face come playoff time is that NFL teams that are playoff bound

usually lighten the workload for their star players, so be careful

if you have players on those teams and let the forum help you


Love ’em

Marcus Robinson, WR BAL: Ever since Anthony Wright became the

starting quarterback for the Ravens a few weeks ago, Robinson has

been his main target. In three weeks he has accounted for four


Shaun Alexander, RB SEA: Seattle takes on the Minnesota Vikings

this weekend, and that is a good thing for Alexander because in the

last seven games the Vikings have allowed a 100-yard rusher in five

of those games. With the Seahawks trailing the St. Louis Rams by

one game in West Division standings, Alexander will be a workhorse

this weekend.

Stephan Davis, RB CAR: Davis has the luxury of facing the

hapless Atlanta Falcons defense – the second worst rush defense in

the league. The Falcons give up an average of 149 yards of rushing

per game and have given up 19 rushing touchdowns this season.

Joey Harrington, QB DET: The Lions are coming off of a big

Thanksgiving Day victory over the Packers and this week take on the

San Diego Chargers. The Chargers pass defense has allowed a

league-leading 28 touchdowns through the air, and Harrington is

prime for a breakout game this weekend.

Kevan Barlow, RB SF: Barlow’s backfield mate, Garrison Hearst,

underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this week and will likely miss

this week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. With Hearst sitting

on the bench, Barlow will see most of the carries.

Leave ’em

Drew Bledsoe, QB BUF: With a wave of head injuries, Bledsoe has

told team trainers that he is consistently dizzy and will most

likely not see the field this weekend.

Garrison Hearst, RB SF: See Kevan Barlow.

Any running back who plays for the Dallas Cowboys: No Dallas

running back has rushed for more than 41 yards in any of the last

three games. Additionally, the Cowboys face a stout Eagles’

defense. The backs from Dallas have no fantasy value this


Tampa Bay defense: After last weekend’s loss to Jacksonville,

the Bucs defense has officially become a total disappointment. It

faces the Saints this weekend, a team the Bucs have lost to three

times in a row.
