Fantasy Feedback: Week 17

A fantasy rundown of the Week 17 NFL games.

Rodgers vs. Foster: Who should be No. 1?

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.

Don’t lose sight of these rules for your playoff run

If you’re in the fantasy playoffs, chances are your roster is pretty locked in, but it doesn’t mean there’s no more advice to give – in fact, I can’t believe there’s some things that owners are still ignoring even as we hit Week 15. So in no particular order, here’s what’s on my mind today.

Playbook: New view for evaluating QBs

While watching film with Joe Theismann this week, he wondered what Aaron Rodgers’ completion percentage would be if you took dropped passes out the equation. Drops, throwaways, and spikes are all incompletions that a QB is usually not responsible for. What would happen if we took these out of the equation? The result was what we call a “True QBR” rating.

Monday Nightmare: Of course Rivers goes off

I got a tweet from William B. on Monday night: “Why is the one day I bench Rivers, his best day of the season?” Because that’s fantasy football. And I should know, because I spent most of my time on Thursday’s edition of NFL Fantasy Live breaking up with Philip Rivers, ending our association for the season.

Apparently, that was the kick-start he needed to get things going.

Week 11 Fantasy QB rankings

With one more week of byes to endure, Jason Smith runs down the list of top 10 fantasy quarterbacks, including a veteran who continues to prove his elite status.

Data Points: Updating the Marino chase

We’re halfway through the season and the usual suspects are still on pace to shatter Dan Marino‘s single-season passing record. Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers all are in position to break the mark of 5,084 yards.

QB rankings: Who makes up six through 10?

For this week’s quarterback rankings, there are no byes, remember. We’re skipping a week before they finish up in Week 11. That means you play all of the Holy Five: Rodgers, Brady, Vick, Brees, and Newton — regardless of matchup. This makes picking the next five best QBs extremely difficult because they’re all available. Here’s how I rank them six through 10 for Week 10.

First and 10: Not for the faint of heart

If you missed the New York Giants’ Super Bowl flashback against the New England Patriots, or Sunday night’s stirring final drive by the Baltimore Ravens against the Pittsburgh Steelers, NFL Network’s got you covered with a special edition of “NFL Replay” Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Fantasy Live Podcast: The Run-Around

The guys have the latest on who to start and who to sit in Week 9 including what to do about Tim Tebow and Philip Rivers. In the second hour, they talk to Steve Wyche about DeMarco Murray’s fantasy value and why you need to pick up Joe McKnight if your running backs are letting you down.

Week 9 fantasy quarterback rankings

Week 9 of the fantasy quarterback rankings sees a new name slip into the top five, while Ben Roethliberger makes the list despite a potentially difficult matchup.

First and 10: Kansas City blues

If you missed Monday’s night’s Halloween thriller in Kansas City, tune in to NFL Network Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET for an enhanced replay of the Chargers’ devastating overtime loss to the surging Chiefs.

Monday Nightmare: Haley does the right thing

Long-time readers of this space know that every Monday night game seems like Halloween to me. Although, I have to give some discredit to the Sunday night game for ruining my fantasy weeks, too including LeSean McCoy erasing my 29-point lead this week. But a funny thing happened to me this Monday — I actually won.

Week 8 fantasy quarterback rankings

In this week’s quarterback rankings list, Philip Rivers falls out of the top five. Did Jason Smith see fit to leave him in the top 10?
