Most of you are either riding the team that got you to the final week of the fantasy season or done for the year. Due to that, there won’t be an official “On the Wire” post this week.

Instead, I’ll offer up some takes from around the Web.

As always, FF Librarian is another one-stop shop for your weekly fantasy football prep.

You can also get some good fill-ins for Week 17 at The FF Geek Blog , Fanhouse , KFFL , Razzball , and Lester’s Legends .

Fantasy Joe even has some special one-week plays on defense , including the San Francisco 49ers, who had a solid outing last week against the Lions—solid enough to prevent me from my third championship this year.

As you go into this week, pay special attention to which teams are resting their players . Week 17 is more of a mess than any other week in the NFL.

Maybe next year, you can request that your commish kindly move the championship game to Week 16 instead.
