My hope was that you didn’t have to read this because it means your championship game lineup has holes in it. Maybe not gaping holes, but holes you feel need to be addressed nonetheless.
If you’re reading this, it also probably means you either own Cam Newton, Russell Wilson or Tom Brady or you are going up against them. If you own them, you’re going to skip the quarterback section.

I had a family gathering this morning so I’m up against the clock here. As usual, there’s lots of news popping off this morning — Spencer Ware is active for the Chiefs, but he probably will only be an emergency back, boosting Charcandrick West and both Alshon Jeffery and Zach Miller are active for the Bears, just to name a few notes.
Use fine news sites like Rotoworld.com to make sure games are being played and players are in lineups. You didn’t come here for news, you came here for boom or bust rankings. I’m happy to report the spreadsheets are still spitting them out that way.

A ton of money changes hands in Las Vegas sportsbooks on NFL Sundays.
They have crack teams of number crunchers who are way better than me and you when it comes to guessing likely scores of NFL games.

Welcome back! If you’re reading this it means you advanced through the opening round of playoffs — or you were so beastly during the regular season you earned a first round bye.
However, maybe you survived injuries to Andy Dalton, Thomas Rawls or T.J. Yeldon and now you need someone to start this week in the most important game of the season — all the jellybeans are just two wins away.

I love/hate waking up early Sunday morning to find out the latest NFL news.
This morning’s rumors/news includes: Gary Barnidge and Travis Benjamin are expected to be good to go. C.J. Anderson will be very limited if he plays. Rob Gronkowski will be good to go “if needed.” DeMarco Murray is the Eagles’ No. 4 running back. Jimmy Clausen is starting for Baltimore. Philip Rivers has a bad case of the flu. Eddie Lacy will by the Packers No. 1 running back.
