Fantasy football 2011-2012 NFL Playoffs Week 3 | Conference Championship fantasy cheat sheet update

Who loves a good championship weekend?

This is my favorite football weekend of the year, even when the Giants are out of the playoffs. I will be fist-pumping when the Giants score today, however, any combination of these four teams should make for a fun Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

As we have done in previous editions of the cheat sheet, players have been ranked based on their ability to accumulate fantasy points over the course of the playoff season. Players from eliminated teams have been removed from the lists.

After being called out about some player placement this week, I went with my ample gut. I think the Giants — when they aren’t sucking anyway — have the best offense/defense combo out of the teams left. Assuming, that is, they watched some film and know they need to double-cover Vernon Davis. Alex Smith won’t find as many windows to pass against the Giants. The 49ers defense gave up 462 yards and 4 TD passes to Drew Brees last week.

Say what you want about the overall quality of the Patriots’ opponents, but what I see is a team that hasn’t lost in almost three months. A team that beat the Tebow when the Broncos QB had all of the momentum. Twice. New England’s last loss was Nov. 6 against the New York Giants, when Eli Manning threw a 1-yard TD to Jake Ballard with 15 seconds left to win it. Meanwhile, the Ravens have a great running back in Ray Rice and a great defense. They also have an overrated quarterback who could get lucky against the second-worst passing defense in the NFL.

If you are playing in playoff challenges this week, good luck. Everyone enjoy the games.
