Super Bowl XLV Pick
To me this should be an epic Super Bowl. Two truly balanced teams. One with a great defense and an underrated offense. The other with a great offense and an underrated defense.
.
The difference will be at the quarterback position. While Aaron Rodgers may have more talent, Big Ben just has a knack for rising to the occasion in big spots.
.
My pick is for the Steelers to take home their seventh Super Bowl trophy.

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
J.J. Redick, Orlando Magic
Redick scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 FT, 2-4 3PM) with a rebound. He hasn’t been as consistent of late.
.
J.R. Smith, Denver Nuggets
Smith scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 5-6 FT) with 9 rebounds, an assist, and 3 steals. He’s been slow of late, but definitely has games like this in him.
.
Thaddeus Young, Philadelphia 76ers
Young scored 21 points (10-12 FG, 1-2 FT) with 7 rebounds, an assist, a steal, and 2 blocks. Young is averaging 16.0 points in his past four games.
.
Manny Harris & Samardo Samuels, Cleveland Cavaliers
Harris scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 FT, 3-5 3PM) with 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and a steal. He started so he should have better numbers in that role, but he’s not a reliable option. Samuels added 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-5 FT) with 2 rebounds and a steal. He’s not a fantasy option.

Nick Markakis averaged 99 runs, 20.3 HRs, 100 RBI, and 11.3 SBs while hitting .299 from 2007-2009. He didn’t excel in any one category, outside of the 112 RBI in 2007, but he was a solid contributor across the board.
.
Then last year happened. The only area in which Markakis looked like himself was his batting average of .297. He scored just 79 runs. He hit just 12 HRs. Those dips were bad, but his 60 RBI was perhaps the worst of the bunch.
.
Those look more like middle infielder numbers than what an all-round top 20 outfielder should produce. He ranked fourth on the team in RBI, behind Ty Wiggington, Luke Scott, and Adam Jones, all of which had fewer at bats than Markakis. Wiggington and Jones has 48 fewer ABs, while Scott had a whopping 182 fewer.

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.

DeJuan Blair & Richard Jefferson, San Antonio Spurs
Blair scored 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-2 FT) with 12 rebounds, 3 assists, a steal, and 3 blocks. He bounced back after totaling 15 points in his three previous games. Jefferson added 18 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 3 rebounds and an assist. He’s averaging 12.5 points in his past four games.
.
Josh McRoberts, Indiana Pacers
McRoberts scored 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-3 3PM) with 8 rebounds, a steal, and 2 blocks. He’s not a good fantasy option.
.
Kyle Korver, Chicago Bulls
Korver scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 3-3 FT, 1-2 3PM) with a rebound and an assist. He’s averaging 10.2 points and 1.8 three-pointers in his past five games.
.
Trevor Booker, Washington Wizards
Booker scored 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT) with 12 rebounds. It was his second straight double-double, but won’t be a factor when JaVale McGee returns.
.
Darrell Arthur & Tony Allen, Memphis Grizzlies
Arthur scored 22 points (9-11 FG, 4-4 FT) with 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and a block. He’s averaging 12.0 points in his past five games. Allen added 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 FT) with 2 rebounds, an assist, and 3 steals. He’s a decent option, especially if you’re looking for steals, while O.J. Mayo serves his suspension.
