FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYOFF STRADIGIDY'

FANTASY PLAYOFF STRATEGY

Peeps’, as difficult as it is to believe, there are a mere 2 tilts remaining in the NFL’s regular season! A season, mind you, that sped along with all the giddyup' of a Roger Clemens Fastball.

Now, depending upon your preparation, you either;
A. Did your research, were well-prepared, and knocked the ball out of the park by having solid players at every position.

B. You suffered some key injuries or disappointing performances, but savvy trade moves and thorough research bolstered your squad. Such prescience allowed you to position yourself squarely within the “batter’s box,” and your franchise still has a chance to “finish in the money.”

C. You played the hand you were dealt, made a few Waiver Wire pick-ups, but no one was willing to trade with you! So… you’re on the outside looking in.

Hopefully, tools such as THIS BLOG, ffspiral.com (the weekly “Start & Sit” pieces, the “LIVE Sunday Morning Chat,” and Kyle Trembley’s sharp observations and articles, amongst all “things Spiral”), Yahoo sports, AOL sports, Sportingnews.com, CBS Sportsline, Football Guys, and so on helped guide your team to a satisfactory finish. While it’s always about winning… is it really? The truth is, to me, anyway, it’s really about having fun and making some friends in the process. Through the outstanding community that populates the Sunday morning Football chat-room, I have made some nice friends and contacts-

In addition, these folks know that they can contact me with their "Hoops" and Hardball inquiries… and I can, and will, do the same!

KEYS TO POST-FANTASY C' PLAY!

1. Watch the weather reports... but don't bench a stud because Saturday's report say's "Snow for Sunday!" If you slide Chicago RB Thomas Jones to "Bench" because Storm Fields says rain likely... you're nothing short of a Biskit'-Head! HOWEVER, if Bronco QB Jake Plummer is slated to play in 10 degree, high wind conditions... and Mike Vick's playing in 70 Dome-Degrees... start Plummer and kick yer' own ass for roughly 8 months or so.

2. Go with the horse(s) that brung ya'! I can't emphasize that enuff'!
AS AN EXAMPLE! NY QB Eli Manning may not be the stud prolific Peyton the Colt is; not this season, anyway. However, easy-Eli has been semi-consistent and can be counted upon for 12-18 points per game. Yes, the young Mann' throws a butt-ugly ball, yes, the young Mann' has an irritating penchant of overthrowing his receivers high and yes, Eli tends to toss picks in bunches. ANY Safety playing Centerfield has a shot at a pick when the Big Blue Field General is forced to play catch-up for he becomes careless and is inclined to force his passes. Still, while he's been reliable, start a slinger like "QBuccaneer" Chris Simms at your risk. The potential for 5-8 more fantasy points over the course of a Playoff Week is outweighed by Manning's consistency.

3. Do NOT be afraid of making a 'Wire grab... even at this late date. New Eag' feature creature Ryan Moats was a highly touted draft pick... but stuck behind Brian Westbrook... Moats' opportunity to make a difference was limited. Now, with the Eags' out of Playoff contention and with Westy' sidelined due to injury... Moats has an opp' to flash his wares. Sunday, the young Eagle soared! Moats posted a line of 114/2 on a scant 11 totes against the resurgent Giant D... and that was quite a display. Next up? A ghastly-bad, 30th ranked (allowing almost 140 per game!) St. Looser' run D is next on the Eagle menu, don't hesitate to take a chance on Moats if you have at least 1 iffy skill po' option!

4. Do NOT under-estimate the value of the Kicking game! Giant Kicker Jay Feeley and 'Zona booter Neil Rakers helped guide my squads to money finishes... and Feeley's helped guide me to a #1 finish in one of my Sandbox leagues.

5. With Saturday games this week.... make certain to set your roster(s) by Friday night! I know this sounds funny, but you have NO idea as to how many owners blank-out, accustomed to looking at Sunday morning's IR.

ANY QUESTIONS... DON'T HESITATE TO FIRE 'EM OFF. Also, I will be featuring Hoopsta' info' all season long; 'Wire pick-ups, injury reports, rankings, trades, and I respond to ANY and ALL questions left for me.

IT'S BEEN A GREAT FOOTBALL SEASON, THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING MY BLOG! I HOPE YOU'LL CONTINUE TO VISIT DURING BASKETBALL AND BASEBALL SEASON!
