The No. 3 seeds (Houston and San Francisco) are feeling pretty good about themselves after big wins in the Wild Card round. What kind of obstacles will they face this week?

Mark Sanchez is the latest target of player ire in the Jets’ locker room. But is he the root cause of Gang Green’s offensive woes this season and how does it affect the team’s fantasy outlook for 2012?

His individual numbers won’t stand out (with just 4 carries for 4 yards and 11 catches for 50), but Jed Collins has been a critical part of a Saints’ run game that resembles more of the 2009 Super Bowl champion squad than a 2010 team that veered heavily toward the pass game.

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.

Ben Roethlisberger says his ankle isn’t feeling great, but it shouldn’t necessarily scare Playoff Challenge players away from using his favorite WR targets.

Rashard Mendenhall could be out for an extended period of time with a knee injury. It opens an opportunity for Isaac Redman but he may not be the first choice of fantasy owners.

Heading into their second matchup with the Saints this season, the Falcons will look to duplicate their last performance – minus one fourth-down failure.

Andre Johnson is out yet again, but fantasy owners shouldn’t quit on the talented wideout just yet.
Posted: Wednesday, December 14th, 2011 | NFL.com Staff Tags: Drew Brees, Elmo, New Orleans Saints, PBS, Sesame Strees
Drew Brees leads the NFL this season with a dizzying 4,366 yards through the air, so it makes sense he would be the man to teach our nation’s youth about the word “measure” during a recent visit to “Sesame Street.”
