Week 17 will be more exciting than usual.
There are still four playoff spots up for grabs, with just one team locked into a playoff position and likely resting its regulars. The end result will be one day, 16 games, and a lot of drama.
Eight hundred and fifty-nine points.
That is nearly 27 points per team from a record-setting Week 14. That number is specially amazing considering one game was played in a freak blizzard and four others were played on snow covered fields, and that doesn’t even count the Arctic conditions in Denver and Chicago.
It is fantasy football playoff time. For many fans, it means devoting even more cognitive processes to America’s most beloved sporting empire.
This weeks picks include a bombardment of important stats to help you survive into Week 15, along with heaping portions of breathtaking propaganda.

Despite previous reports that Michael Vick had distanced himself from Nick Foles in the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback competition, it now appears the two are basically even for the starting job.
