Don’t get Taylor Swift!!!!…Don’t get Taylor Swift!!!!!.….Don’t get Taylor Swift!!!!!!….Don’t get Taylor Swift????…..Don’t get Taylor Swift !!!!…Don’t get cute….It’s something you are going to be hearing a lot of from myself and the rest of the fananalysts in the community now that the playoffs are in fantasy football…and while it’s important to keep this as rule #1 moving forward by starting your best lineup possible and not taking too many ill advised risks…You do whatever it takes to win and if the matchups screams for it (think Drew Brees last week versus the Seahawks)… You have to find the guts to make the move…however you decide to make these tough choices this week …….draw names from a hat, have your wife/significant other pick the players, throw darts, use someone’s rankings (Which by the way I was #16/127 last week…humble brag much…Yeah yeah….*Evil Laugh*) Anyway, when kickoff starts at 1PMEST on Sunday ……this is it …what you have been waiting for all year…this is all you ..You got this…don’t even trip…Lose this week and you had a great year and there is no shame in a loss in the playoffs…You will get them next year…..But who am I kidding??? We want winners!..So like I say every week… Be Bold…Be Brave …Be You …Good luck …Don’t forget to check out my podcast “Perusing the Perimeter” this week as my guest @JuanElway stops by to breakdown the Week 14 action …and follow ya boy on Twitter @Whudey ……Have Fun!!!
I will be grouping the offensive skill positions listing my “Loves” first and then “Hates”….After that I will color code them from most comfortable to least comfortable on placing into my starting lineup this week…Hope its not to confusing and hope it ultimately helps…New addition to the “PTP” blog this year will be my personal rankings from FantasyPros.com for the given week posted below which I will update daily up until a couple hours before kickoff every Sunday:
