Good morning, Fools. It's crunch time in Fantasyland, with postseason berths on the line in millions of leagues. So let's jump right to the news we can use:
Looks like another week of Alfred Blue as Arian Foster hasn't worked out his groin issues yet (can't most of us say that, really?). Foster is not expected to play today.
Hope you're not counting on Reggie Bush either. He's likely out, leaving the backfield to Joique Bell and Theo Riddick in a tough matchup.
Fred Jackson is expected to play, and he finally got some practice reps in; but I don't like his chances in this crazy Monday nighter against a decent Jets run defense with about 45 people cheering from the stands.
Doug Martin could get another shot at the Bucs' starting gig, given the ineffectiveness of Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey in his absence. No, I don't think you should start any of them.
After Jonas Gray missed practice the other day, reports are surfacing that he will split carries with newly acquired LeGarrette Blount. It shouldn't matter, given the matchup with a very stingy Lions run defense. Neither RB is good starting material today.
Pierre Thomas will be back in the lineup Monday night, plunging Travaris Cadet's value and possibly stealing a few carries from Mark Ingram. But no worries...Ingram is still the man in the Saints' backfield.
Larry Fitzgerald will be a game-time decision. He's a risky start if he goes against the Seahawks, but Michael Floyd's value increases a bit if he's out.
Both Owen Daniels and Delanie Walker are expected to suit up today.
That's it for now, Fools. Off to early church service. Back in time to tweet the inactives and other late-breaking news. Good luck today!
