COLTS FAN CASEY: WEEK 17 FANTASY FOOTBALL BLOG

Posted by ColtsCaseyB on December 28, 2012 – 2:01 pm

What’s up Colts Nation!? This is it! This is my final fantasy football blog of the 2012 season. While it’s bittersweet for both you and I, you can still relive all of my blogs by clicking here.

One point to make quickly, if you’re still playing in your fantasy league right now, a meaningful game this is, then you must be in your league’s championship or “Super Bowl.” That does not apply to myself at 90% of the fantasy football playing population. However, with so much on the line this week, the most important decisions must be made now.

In last week’s blog, I talked about the importance for teams that are still striving for playoff spots and how important it is for them to perform. Now for this week, we have to take that into consideration, but we also must look at the teams that have “nothing” to play for and have their playoff positioning set. As we’ve seen in years past, this is the time when teams will typically rest their star players to have them ready for the playoffs.

Instead of doing my usual “start em” and “sit em” picks of the week as I’ve done throughout the year, I’m going to share some insights on who you should and shouldn’t start and why.

Should Start:

Tony Romo – This could be the biggest game of his career as he heads into Fed Ex Field to face off against RGIII and the Redskins. It’s this simple: the winner of the game wins the NFC East. Besides the fact Romo put up around 30 points on Thanksgiving in the first matchup between these two teams, I think this is the game where Romo shines and shows that he belongs. He has played so well throughout the month of December, not only this season, but in his career. I think he’ll put up huge fantasy points.

Adrian Peterson – Even though it’s unlikely he gets 207 yards and breaks Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record, AP will have a huge day as his team’s playoff hopes are riding on his back just like his team has the entire year. It’s simple for the Vikings, win and you’re in. It makes it tough that they have to host the Green Bay Packers in their season finale. I’m not sure if they’ll win, or if AP will break the record, but I know that he will do whatever he can to assure both happen, and because of that you have to start him.

Be Careful:

Now there aren’t many teams out there that have their positioning locked up, but there are a few. One of them being our very own Colts, but as Coach Pagano said earlier this week, I don’t foresee us resting any of our players. However, the Atlanta Falcons have the NFC’s No. 1 seed locked up heading into a home game against the Buccaneers, and they have a lot of big players in the fantasy world, so I would be hesitant about starting any of the Falcons players. As far as the AFC is concerned, the only teams whose position is locked in are the Wildcard teams. The Bengals have the sixth seed locked up, but they have a big game against the Ravens so I don’t foresee either team resting players.

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

Yours in Fantasy Football,
