Fantasy Football: Playoff performers-NOTE Rodgers is out

While some of you are starting your playoffs this week most of you, like me in three leagues, are in the semifinal round.
The key note at this stage revolves around Green Bay. According to the Green Bay Web site quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion) is out for Week 15. Temper your expectations for all Packers'players this weekend with Mike Flynn starting against New England at QB.
If you need a defense, grab the Patriots "D."
Another QB to monitor heading into game time is Kansas City's Matt Cassel. If he plays, start Dwayne Bowe with confidence. If it's Brodie Croyle at QB, replace Bowe with someone who will get you points.
Two players that stick out this week are tight ends - Houston's Owen Daniels and Oakland's Zach Miller. Both came back from injuries and had decent games last week. They are healthy now and have the kind of matchups this week that can mean 5-10 receptions, 80-90 yards and a touchdown each.
Also note with Dallas QB Tony Romo expected back in Week 16 that this is likely the final week for Jon Kitna to start. He will be pumped up to make the most of this start and should be started if you have him, even with receiver Dez Bryant out for the season.
