Out on a Fantasy Football Limb Playoff Edition 4
It’s Playoff Time, but I’m still going out on that fantasy football limb. I will pick three players I think will score more points than a higher profile player. The scoring is 6 points for rushing or receiving TD, 4 points for a passing TD, .1 points per yard for rushing or receiving and .05 points per passing yard. First, I’ll recap how I did during the Divisional Round.
Brett Favre 19.7 beat Eli Manning +5 18.1 (13.1 plus five spotted points) as I predicted
Laurence Maroney 17.1 beat Brandon Jacobs +2 15.5 (13.5 actual plus two spotted points) as I predicted.
Donald Driver 20.1 beat Vincent Jackson 9.3 WHICH I GOT WRONG.

This Week’s Picks
Tom Brady over Eli Manning +6
I’ll trust that Brady’s ankle will hold up and he’ll have another solid Super Bowl showing. I think the big stage may be a little too bright for young Eli. I’ll spot him six points and take the MVP.
Brandon Jacobs over Laurence Maroney
Maroney has been lights out. I think he’ll actually outgain the big man, but I think Jacobs is more likely to hit paydirt.
Plaxico Burress over Randy Moss
I saw Randy’s face on a milk carton this morning. Aside from his legal issue, Randy has been pretty silent thus far. I think that may continue on Sunday. Plax has been a force. He’s got such a height advantage. Plus, the time off should help his bumps and bruises.
