Fantasy forecast: You kidding me? Playoffs?!?



    Mark Ingram (RB/NO)-
My one sleeper pick for the week is Ingram. The Saints are talking really big about “trying to approach this game differently”. If they stick to that then they should be trying to run outdoors in cold weather, and if they are I believe Ingram could be in for a big game.

    Dark Horse: My dark horse pick for this week is probably the most risky one that I have picked yet. This is a guy that only has 17 catches all season. He only has 376 receiving yards, but did somehow manage 3 TD’s. This week’s Dark Horse is the San Diego Chargers No. 2 tight end Ladarius Green. Green is as big of a boom-or-bust play as there is, and I sure wouldn’t bet my one-week-season on him. I just have a feeling that Cincy is going to take away Allen and Antonio Gates, and if they do Phillip Rivers might look to Green for a few good catches.

    End Note: The best thing about playing fantasy football in the playoffs is that if you are a loser, you are only a loser for one week and then you get to start over. So sign up for a league and either prove that your championship wasn’t a fluke, or that your terrible season was. See ya next week.
