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.

ESPN: Week 12 Fantasy Matchups

Jonas Gray is the latest fantasy flavor of the week, but a star was not born on Sunday night. A bad defense was exposed by a smart coach taking advantage of his bye week. Some of our favorite Week 12 fantasy matchups for salary-cap leagues include Drew Brees, Jay Cutler, Justin Forsett and Larry Donnell. You should also consider taking a chance on Josh Gordon in his return against the 32nd-ranked Atlanta pass defense.

ESPN: Week 11 Fantasy Matchups

Some of our favorite Week 11 fantasy options for salary-cap leagues include Robert Griffin, Mark Ingram, Martavis Bryant, Mychal Rivera and Ahmad Bradshaw. Mark Sanchez may be a name to consider in the future, but don't trust him against the Packers this week. The Carolina Panthers even made Andy Dalton look great.
