Was week 13 an unlucky one for you? In many leagues the playoffs are now underway, so Nick Cattles and Mike Lockhart kick off the show talking about their fantasy season. Since you can’t risk any holes in your lineup- hear what they think about Roy Helu, who has become one of the top 5 most-added players, and receiver Nate Burleson, who has another good matchup this week vs. the Vikings. They also look at some WR/RB matchups- it’s playoff time, so you have to go with the guy who will score you the most points!

If you’re trying to figure out who to sit or start this week, Cattles and Lockhart take a look at a few “start ‘em sit ‘em” scenarios. Don’t give up on Michael Turner; he takes on a struggling run defense vs. Carolina today. Calvin Johnson is a safe start against the Vikings defense. And Victor Cruz will be motivated today because the Giants are competing for the division title. If you’re thinking of playing any backups today- it’s probably not worth the risk…
SI.com’s injury expert Will Carroll gives us a few injury updates including: Adrian Peterson who is a risky start, in this case if you have a back up, use him. Josh Freeman is a game-time decision, as is Sam Bradford. Nate Washington will likely start, but again, if you have a decent replacement on your bench, use him. Good luck to everyone as the playoffs get underway!
