What’s up Colts Nation!? I’m back for one of my last fantasy football blogs and this is the time of year where every single point can matter. Scratch that, this is the time of the year where every tenth of a point can matter. This is for all the marbles. That is, unless you’re me, and you’re playing for the championship in the “loser” bracket. Nonetheless, I still will go down fighting!

A few things to keep in mind over the next few weeks of fantasy football. Luckily for us all, there seems to be a lot of teams in the hunt for playoff spots and playoff positioning. This means we’re not likely to see teams “resting” players over the next two games of the season. Also, there are teams still fighting to get into the playoffs so if you have players on those teams (Pittsburg, Minnesota, and Dallas come to mind) be sure to start them.

Now for my “start em” and “sit em” picks of the week.

Week 16 Start em: Let’s stay at home and go with our boy No. 12 Andrew Luck. Coming off his two lowest passing yard games of the season, look for Luck to bounce back with authority against a struggling yet talented defense of the Chiefs. This is a statement game for the Colts and I look for Luck to make a statement of his own.

Week 16 Sit em: This one is a toughie this week with so much post-season implications heading into this week. So let’s look at a game where neither team is in the playoff hunt and start there…. How about San Diego Chargers vs. New York Jets? I think Shonn Green will have a bad week against the Chargers, he’s your sit of the week.

That’s it for me today; don’t forget to check out my homepage on Colts.com to see what I’ve been up to! (Especially my tailgate videos)

COLTS FAN CASEY: WEEK 15 FANTASY BLOG

What’s up Colts Nation? As the fantasy season begins to wind down, by default my time on this blog is limited. As I mentioned in last week’s blog, all I had to do to earn a spot in the playoffs is to win and I was in. Well long story short, I didn’t do that, instead I got blown out by one of the best teams in my league.

The good news is that I have another league that I’m in where my team made the playoffs. The bad news is that team Colts Fan Casey is eliminated from playoff contention. My other team, “Make it Wayne on These Throws,” finished the season with a 10-4 record which is the inverse of team Colts Fan Casey’s record.

So now let’s take a moment to look forward to this week’s games. Despite the HUGE playoff and postseason implications present in matchups across the NFL this weekend, there are a lot of favorable fantasy pairings as well.

I’m going to show you guys a look at my other team’s roster for this week’s playoff game. It’s shown below.

Now for my “start em” and “sit em” picks of the week.

Week 15 Start em: He happens to be my starting QB, but I think Matt Stafford is your go-to guy this week as the Lions take on the Arizona Cardinals who are coming off a 58-0 loss at the hands of the Seahawks.

Week 15 Sit em: I’m going with Bears running back Matt Forte. He’s had a good season on the fantasy circuit, but I found an astounding stat saying he hasn’t scored a touchdown in the last four games against the Packers. Sit Mr. Forte.

Week 15 Random Thought: Don’t just base your starting lineup off of projections. Look at oppositions, trends, how teams handle the run vs. how they handle the pass. Look outside of the projections made by a bunch of pencil pushers. You know football now show it!
