NFL Week 17 Fantasy Fill-ins

Dec 26, 2008

Putting the final piece of your fantasy football puzzle together

I’ve uncovered some guys you can plug in to your lineup if you are dealing with an injury or tough matchups.   Check back following the games to see the stat line of guys profiled.

Seneca Wallace
- Seneca had a decent showing against the Jets in the snow.  The weather and Arizona’s Defense are much more fantasy friendly.  Wallace and Company will try to send Holmgren off a Winner.
Stat Line:  24 of 43 for 250 yards, 2 TDs, 2 INTs, 3 carries for 14 yards

Ryan Grant 
- Detroit makes everybody look a little better than they are.  Heck, New Orleans had four first half rushing TDs against them.  Ryan Grant should have a nice game against them as Detroit finishes off their imperfect season.
Stat Line:  19 carries for 106 yards, 3 catches for 23 yards

Larry Johnson - LJ continues a strong second half surge.  He should pile up the yards against Cincinnati in what could be his last game in a Chiefs uniform.
Stat Line:  10 carries for 18 yards

Steve Breaston - Arizona will use Seattle as a chance to right their wrongs heading into the playoffs.  If Boldin isn’t 100% he won’t go.  Breaston needs 85 yards for a 1000 yard season.  I can see him reaching that mark.
Stat Line:  5 catches for 91 yards, TD

Santonio Holmes - Holmes has three TDs in his last four games.  Against Cleveland there is a good chance he scores again.
Stat Line:  3 catches for 31 yards

Gijon Robinson - With Indy already in, Gijon could get some more work in order to keep Dallas Clark healthy for the playoffs.  He’s had eleven catches for 128 yards in his past three weeks.
Stat Line:  Did not catch a pass.

Mason Crosby
- In your fantasy Super Bowl, why not go with a guy who is facing the Lions.  He should be good for 4+ PATs and a FG.
Stat Line:  1 FG, 4 PATs

Green Bay
- See above.
Stat Line:  1 Sack, 2 INTs
