ESPN: Divisional Round Fantasy Matchups

Is Aaron Rodgers the most valuable quarterback this weekend given the Dallas pass defense is the only remaining unit not ranked in the top 15? Can you afford to start any running backs besides the four studs playing below-average run defenses? Is Emmanuel Sanders a better investment than Demaryius Thomas and T.Y. Hilton? Can we trust Julius Thomas to regain his dominant form, or is the pricey Rob Gronkowski the safest bet for tight end dominance? We answer these questions and rank our picks for salary-cap leagues for divisional weekend.

ESPN: Wild Card Fantasy Matchups

If you could only pick one this week: Dez Bryant or Calvin Johnson? Is Ryan Lindley a bargain to load up on the wide receivers, or is he destined for single-digit points? Is DeMarco Murray too expensive against the best run defense now that Ndamukong Suh is allowed to play? Should we even bother looking at any Pittsburgh running back this week? We answer these questions and more to help set up your rosters for salary-cap leagues for this Wild Card weekend.

ESPN: Week 16 Fantasy Matchups

Some of our favorite Week 16 matchups for salary-cap leagues include Matthew Stafford, C.J. Anderson, Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce. I also think Alex Smith will actually throw a touchdown to a wide receiver (Dwayne Bowe) while Kyle Orton will help Charles Woodson get his 60th career interception. A high-priced stack of Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson in Tampa Bay is something you'll want to do as well.
