Even with the lure of double points, most owners shied away from starting players on bye weeks in the first run of the NFL Playoff Challenge. But there were some interesting names that found their way into lineups.

They are division winners, a playoff host and one of 12 contenders for the Lombardi Trophy. But to move forward in these playoffs, the Giants have to step up their game. Against Matt Ryan, Michael Turner and the Atlanta Falcons (10-6), the Giants defense will most certainly have to do better – and it all starts on first down versus the run.

With the 2011 fantasy football season in the rear view mirror, Jason Smith looks at who could be the top fantasy pick in 2012. The answer isn’t as simple as you’d think.

In many ways, this was a fitting end to a highly-disappointing fantasy season. My dream team went into Monday night with an eight-point lead with Michael Turner and Lance Moore going up against Jimmy Graham and Roddy White. I felt a slight confidence, and by confidence, I mean I knew that I was screwed.
