There is no margin of error on what is likely last weekend of the fantasy football regular season.

You cannot lightly debate the merits of your different starting lineups.

You must obsess. You must scour every article you can find to see what the correct play will be. 

Today's dilemma?

Who to roll with: Antonio Brown or Percy Harvin?


The Case for Antonio Brown

An important factor in making any fantasy football decisions should be centered around the players' health. Believe it or not, it has been determined that being on the field is necessary to put up any points.


Anyway, Brown is slated to start against the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday. He's a productive receiver yardage- and catch-wise with 499 yards on 42 receptions.

Brown isn't without his concerns. The quarterback situation is unresolved thanks to Ben Roethlisberger's lingering injury. If he doesn't go, the remaining signal-callers are Charlie Batch and the recently signed Brian Hoyer, which doesn't inspire too much confidence. 


The Case for Percy Harvin

The basis of this conundrum is surrendering Harvin's production. Entering the Minnesota Viking's matchup with the Green Bay Packers, Harvin has already caught 62 balls for 677 yards and three touchdowns.

But Harvin hasn't been able to consistently practice and will likely be a game-time decision, which isn't much help to anyone.

However, remember that picking Brown means you're trusting an injury that included the phrase "life threatening" in the description. There is little to no chance that the recent father's wife is going to agree to such a crazy idea.


The Verdict: Brown

Employing experiments and taking chances is for the middle of the season when you're blowing a three-game lead. Go with the player that has positively stated that he is playing this weekend regardless of who is throwing to him this weekend.
