This entry is part 13 of 13 in the series Fantasy Football: Scouting Room

I …

This happens every year. It’s the home stretch, a playoff seed may already be within grasp and then, at that most critical juncture – Melvin Gordon gets hurt.

PACKERS @ SEAHAWKS – Ciriaco Quarterback START – Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers SIT – None For the most part, you should never sit future hall of fame QB’s in their prime.

PANTHERS @ STEELERS – Ben Quarterbacks START – Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton SUB – None SIT – None Last week I called for caution with Big Ben in a tough road start against the Baltimore Ravens, a venue he had been pedestrian at best in. He, of course, went off for 30 points continuing his …
