The Fantasy Football regular season should be done at this point. Most teams either are starting their postseason, or are in its second week.
The one piece of advice I can give any fantasy player competing for the Championship is: Don’t reinvent the wheel.
If you have made it to this point, it is most likely because you have a team that is being carried by a few good players. Now is the time to ride those players to a title.
The last thing you want to do is sit a player that has won games for you week in and week out and risk leaving the winning points on your bench.

Start of the Week
I really like Maurice Jones-Drew this week to tear apart the Green Bay run defense.
The Packers rank 27th in rushing yards allowed and fifth-worst in rushing touchdowns allowed.
Steve Slaton went off for 26 rushes and 120 yards in Green Bay in Week 14.
DeAngelo Williams had four rushing touchdowns the week before that.
The Packers aren’t stopping anyone right now and the Jaguars are at home. MJD could go off for a very big day.
QBs to Start
This seems like a no-brainer, but if you don’t have Peyton Manning in the rotation every week, because of his somewhat shaky year, you need to start him this week against a Lions team that can’t stop anyone...
