To win one game: Brady or Brees?

It’s a simple yet complex question: Would you take Tom Brady or Drew Brees at quarterback to win one game?

‘Playbook’ mailbag: Brees gears up for Niner pass rush

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?

Three and out: Sanchez root of Jets’ offensive woes?

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?

Playbook: Fullback, commitment to run key to Saints success

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.

Playoff Challenge owners take a pass on bye week players

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.

Three and out: Roethlisberger still hobbling

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.

Three and out: Don’t give up on Johnson yet

Andre Johnson is out yet again, but fantasy owners shouldn’t quit on the talented wideout just yet.

Mr. Drew to Elmo — for the touchdown!

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.”

Week 15 playoff scenarios

Congratulations to the Texans, who have clinched the first playoff berth in franchise history. With three weeks left in the season, there are still eight playoff spots up for grabs. And three teams – the Patriots, Ravens and Steelers – all have a chance to officially join the party this weekend.

With both Laurent Robinson and Miles Austin back at Cowboys practice, Robinson’s fantasy value is in flux. But fantasy owners could do worse than to take a chance on Robinson for another week.

Week 14 playoff scenarios

With four weeks left in the season, there are still six division crowns and 10 total playoff spots up for grabs. Congratulations to the Packers and 49ers, who have clinched the NFC North and West, respectively. Meanwhile, here’s a look at what can happen this week.

Tale of the Tape: Can the Saints stifle Megatron?

Everyone knows the Lions will be without Ndamukong Suh against the Saints this weekend. That’s a huge blow to their defense. But the real story heading into Sunday’s contest will be the absence of wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who has been taken away by opposing defenses in the last three weeks.
