Championship Week Fantasy Matchups are up. And yes, there's plenty of discussion regarding Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne, and whether they're benchable this week against the Jets and Revis Island.

Mike Bell is on IR? I don't see that reported anywhere?
Oops. Thought he had been placed on IR. Has a clearly limited role either way.
How does Alex Smith (against Detroit's porous pass defense) compare to Schaub (playing a decently tough Miami defense plus its ball control time-killing offense)?
"Does anyone realize that it's Rodgers who leads the NFL in QB fantasy points this year?"
Yes, and laughing all the way to the bank.
I dislike statements like these, especially since there's not a single "standard" QB scoring method, like with RBs. In my league (pretty standard scoring, 1 pt per 20 yards passing, 4 points per passing TD, -2 points per INT, -2 points per fumble lost, -1 point per time sacked), Peyton Manning is #1, followed by Brees.
on espn.com you said that Mike Bell is on IR!
Where did you get that from????
"Pierre Thomas (New Orleans Saints, plus-20 percent)
It's hard to figure out the Saints' backfield at times, but with Reggie Bush's leg issues and Mike Bell out of the picture on IR, this could be Thomas' best shot at the full workload all year. It's coming against the Bucs, which should provide him with the opportunity for a huge fantasy day."
never mind... I didnt read your first comment! "oops"
I know the raiders are really unpredictable. They play CLE who is coming off that monster game. Who do you like to start at RB? I have TWO raider RBs, McFadden, and I just picked up Bush. Who is starting, the Raiders website has the depth chart 1. DMC 2. Bush 3. Fargas Justin Fargas goes from starter to 3rd string like that? Maybe they want to see what they have in DMC?
I am already starting Thomas Jones. I am waiting to see on D Williams, but he looks doubtful. I also have M Morris on my bench BUT, I doubt he will do anything against a good 9er's D at home.
<< This is for my LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP as well (Yes Im in the Superbowl of FF), so I am looking for good advice >>
steven jackson or desean jackson in flex?
Mike and Tom take a (belated) look at the candidacies of first-time semifinalists Derrick Brooks, Tony Dungy, Marvin Harrison and Walter Jones, and wonder what the Dallas coaches were thinking on Monday night.
