Much like the NFL itself, the fantasy football season is entering its playoff push. For fantasy owners, this is crunch time, which means the matchups for your players, or those you pick up off waivers, are incredibly important. As usual, we have our three friends from CBSSports.com joining us to break down the biggest starts and sits of the week at each of the skill positions.
There are two games on the docket this week that the guys have their eye on in particular for potentially explosive point totals: the Philadelphia Eagles in New Orleans to face the Saints, and the Kansas City Chiefs in Los Angeles to face the Rams. All four teams have the potential for offensive eruptions, while the defenses have been found mostly lacking this season. With that in mind, Dave Richard and Heath Cummings walk you through their starts and sits for the week and the reasons behind them in the video above.
