Hot tips, sneaky tips, and last minute tactics going into Playoffs

At this time of the Fantasy Season it’s all about getting into the playoffs, after that it really doesn’t matter where you’re seeded (unless you get a bye), as there are a plethora of new options and strategies, so do what you gotta’ do in and that could depend on this week so do your homework. As always matchps are the first thing to look at if you have some option in your starting lineup, and if you’re a club fighting for a playoff spot then you probably do, so put the egos aside and look at how might have (A) big game for you rather than the player who has the name or been good in the past. With that in mind here are some of the matchups we like:

Quarterbacks

Michael Vick – I almost feel stupid putting him in because any MVP candidate is most of the time an automatic start but for those of you that use software programs to determine starters and skip the basics, you could be misled because for the season Vick is 5th among active QB’s in fantasy points for the season and some owners actually still have him on the bench because of last week’s matchup with the Bears, but he is going up against a defense that is 31st in the league against the pass, so look for Vick to put up some good points with his arm this week, give him the start.

Watch out for – Matt Ryan – He may be suffering from ‘Dome’s Disease’ as his numbers are much different on the road than they are in the confines of the dome.

Sleeper – Matt Cassel – going up against the Broncos he’ll put the ball in the air quite a bit, particularly with the screen pass, and the Broncos (20th pass 30th run) are susceptible to both so look for him to have a big day.

Wide Receivers

Stephen Johnson – Enough with the dropped pass drama already. He’ll be looking to redeem himself in a big way and the Vikings (14th against the pass) won’t be easy pickins’ but he simply gets so many opportunities to make plays because he is Kirkpatrick’s boy and the Bills put the ball up much more than the average and will be trying to make things happen as they have nothing to lose.

Watch out for – Larry Fitzgerald – I don’t like Fitz this week just because of the way Derek Anderson is throwing the ball right now, and how bad the offense is playing. True the Rams will give up some real estate but they’re playing much better and I don’t like the Cards on a short week. You probably have better options.

Sleeper – Randy Moss – If Collins plays this could be the make it play of the season for you. A veteran quarterback will know exactly how use Randy and make the most of his big play capabilities. If you need to break out of your average and do something big this may be the play.
