Sunday morning updates -- Week 14

Good morning, Fools, and happy postseason! Here's hoping you're still reading because you're still competing.

Here's the latest info to help you on your road to a championship...

Michael Vick will be back in action against the Dolphins, and Jeremy Maclin will be, too. Maclin had been downgraded to questionable after appearing to be on his way back, but he's active today. Both players have some risk of re-injury, and Miami is playing pretty sound pass defense. But I'm starting Vick in one playoff matchup (benching Tebow, who held down the fort pretty well), and I would probably start Maclin as well if I had him.

Christian Ponder will play today -- good news for Percy Harvin's owners -- but Adrian Peterson will not, in a mild surprise. Hopefully you have Gerhart to pick up the slack.

It's still looking like the Rams will be down to their 3rd (Brandstater) or 4th (Clemens) QB on Monday night when they face the Seahawks. Sam Bradford will be a game-time decision, but I'm not taking any chances. I'm reserving Brandon Lloyd and suggest you do, too.

Not only is Roy Helu a good start today against the Patriots, but Ryan Torain is inactive.

Mark Ingram is inactive today, leaving the door open for a good showing from Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles. Chris Ivory will also get some carries.

Kevin Smith is also out. Could be a decent afternoon for Maurice Morris.

Andre Johnson is out again. If you drafted him first this season, you probably aren't paying attention anymore.

All signs point to Miles Austin returning to action in tonight's game against the Giants. Laurent Robinson looks like he'll be fine, as well.

And in other news, Robert Griffin III is your new Heisman champion. This Baylor boy would like to say congrats to RG3, and "Sic 'em, Bears!"

That's it for today. Tweets start now (@ladd_biro). Good luck, Fools!
