This is it, folks. If you’re reading this, you either enjoy masochism or you are in the finals of your fantasy football league. You’ve spent all season building a contender, and you’ve clearly done a pretty good job, so let’s not waste time this week.
Championship Week has arrived! Here we are, pondering which guys to insert into our flex positions. So let’s get down to business and go win some titles!
Championship week. This is what it’s all about. As great as making the final game in your head-to-head league is, keep in mind that for most people, the sad reality is that their fantasy football season is already over. There can only be one winner in redraft and dynasty leagues.

By this late into the season, I have to admit that sometimes I feel fatigued.

In a surprise turn of events Quarterback Jimmy Clausen will start for the Chicago Bears in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions.

Thank you all for reading these weekly Start/Sit columns throughout the year. It’s been a fun season and I hope you’ve benefited from the content that’s been provided, including Waiver Wire pickups. Best of luck in Week 16; have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Week 15. This is where all that hard work you put in back in July and August finally pays off. All the reading, research, number-crunching, note-taking and obsessing. It’s fantasy playoffs time. Where bragging rights, championship belts, trophies and cold hard cash are earned.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s semifinal week! Start these players with confidence and move one step closer to glory. When it all works out like it should, it will be you bragging at the company water cooler come Monday.
