Things that America's Team has to be thankful for...
How does a first-round bye and a shot at the number one overall seed in the playoffs sound? Sounds like a reason to carve an extra slice of turkey and sleep easy on the couch.
But to do that, you'll need to beat Marcas Grant's recently resurgent Championship Fring. It would take a small miracle for him to make the playoffs, but you know he'd certainly like to finish the season on a positive note ... and that would mean spoiling your shot at the No. 1 seed.
So there's one question you need to answer -- who will be your starting quarterback in the final week of the fantasy regular season?
Or you can try your luck on the waiver wire. There's Alex Smith who has found some life recently and has a favorable outlook against the Denver Broncos. Or do you try the red-hot Carson Palmer against the woebegone Philadelphia Eagles? Maybe Eli Manning is more to your liking on Sunday night versus a horrid Washington outfit.
Plus, you might want to do a little scoreboard watching. America's Team is currently tied with Adam Rank for the best record in the league, but Rank holds the tiebreaker by virtue of his win over you earlier in the season. However, if Team America can take down Championship Fring and Akbar Gbajabiamila's Coup d'etat can topple El Presidente, you'll really have something to be thankful for.
So grab a plate and keep your smartphone close, because the final week of the fantasy regular season is sure to offer some intrigue. Let's go!
