With the start of the fantasy football play-offs in most leagues, I have expanded the list of WRs to include all of those from the three teams I have playing this weekend. The first five are the ones from "Orlovsky's O", whose league doesn't begin its play-offs until Week Fifteen and just four teams out of twelve make the play-offs. If I win, I'm in as I currently reside at the top of the division on the strength of the second-most points scored in the league.
St Louis Rams' WR Torry Holt appears to have a very favorable match-up this week, but I am concerned. Recent news has his QB, Marc Bulger, feeling a little woozy following last week's concussion. ESPN's fantasy injury expert Stephania Bell stated, as emphatically as she could, on XM Radio's "Rotowire Fantasy Sports Hour With Chris Liss" that this will lead to Bulger missing this weekend's game. I am considering sitting Holt and playing one of three RBs at the Flex - Ron Dayne, Jerious Norwood or Fred Jackson.
Jackson becomes a very attractive option against the pourous Miami Dolphins' rush defense if Marshawn Lynch doesn't play. Ms. Bell mentioned she believes Lynch will play but could quickly re-injure the high ankle sprain that has kept him out the past three weeks. If Lynch starts, then FJax has to sit.
Wouldn't you agree?

Last Week's Results:
Is Fred Jackson a good start if Marshawn Lynch is slated to start the game?
This poll is closed
Yes - Lynch is coming back too quickly from a high ankle sprain and will be ineffective if he actually plays.
No. The risk is too high with play-offs on the line.
