Be advised that today's games could turn out wacky.
For example, Indianapolis looks like it has a golden matchup against the hapless Detroit defense. But there is the growing concern that many of the starters will be rested in the second half, especially if the game is a Colts blowout by halftime. You likely already know that back Joseph Addai is questionable and likely won't play. Even if he does start, it will be sparingly with Dominic Rhodes getting the bulk of the workload.
Also, San Francisco back Frank Gore is out with DeShaun Foster the starter. But don't expect much production going against the stout Miami defense.
Other backs to consider who are still available on many waiver wires are Cadillac Williams, Tatum Bell or if you are really desperate - Cedric Benson.
It also appears Tampa Bay quarterback Jeff Garcia will not start. Find another option if you have him active.
Avoid the Pittsburgh-Baltimore matchup if possible due to two defenses that are expected to stymie both offenses.
And good luck with the Dallas-Giants matchup. For the Giants, back Brandon Jacobs is out so Derrick Ward becomes a key player. But the Dallas "D" won't allow much production there. Expect Eli Manning to throw a lot with Amani Toomer likely having a good day.
And who knows what to expect from the Cowboys with the Tony Romo-Terrell Owens-Jason Witten saga. If you have these guys on your roster you have to obviously play them since this is playoff time. But this game becomes a crapshoot - Dallas needs the win but do the players care more about personal grudges?
Good luck today....and yes, play all Eagles players and their defense on Monday night.
