The Unexpected (and expected) for Wild Card weekend

The the NFL playoffs are finally here. Wild Card weekend came and passed without too much hubbub, as three of the four games didn’t quite live up to the billing. Nevertheless, there were plenty of surprises as usual, so let’s get to the unexpected (and expected) for Wild Card weekend.

If the Vikings don’t add a veteran quarterback, fantasy owners would be wise to temper expectations for Sidney Rice in 2011.

Ten quotes that could help fantasy owners

Cowboys defense becomes the play

The old cliché states that defense wins championships. Well, it might also help you win a fantasy championship, too.

It’s been a topic of conversation since he picked himself up off the turf at Mall of America field two weeks ago: Has Brett Favre played his last snap in the NFL?
