4th and Goal – Show 14

By Michael Stephens

Arizona Cardinals v Tennessee Titans

Welcome to 4th and Goal, hosted by Michael Stephens and Nate Davis! We’ve made it to the fantasy Promised Land! Care to join us? We at 4th and Goal hope that all of our listeners are able to taste the sweet victory of the fantasy playoff season, but if you had one of those years and just need to save face and hunker down until 2010, we’re here for you too! Now that we’ve reached the most volatile part of the season, where one bad week can mean the end for you and your team, there’s no time like now to check out this podcast for all of your injury news, start/sit advice and everything else we offer each week! With names like Chris Johnson and Hines Ward (as well as dozens more) showing up on the injury report for week 14, you’ll need to be on top of things if you want to move on to the second week of the postseason! We’ll do everything for you that we can (except hit “submit lineup”), and all you have to do is listen – it’s time to call your best play or hit the showers, because it’s 4th and Goal!

AFC-NFC Hall of Fame Game: Indianapolis Colts v Washington Redskins

QUICK SLANTS (1:00)
• Flea Flickers – after being shut out last week, we have TWO new e-mailers!
• A wide receiver quandary that’s made more difficult by Hines Ward’s injury
• A running back problem that’s not actually a problem!
• Wounded Ducks (3:08)
• Two Matts and a Jim
• Only six injured running backs – too bad they’re all HUGE fantasy names!
• Don’t worry, he’s still a #$&@*% soldier…
• IDP meat wagon – this might be our biggest IDP list of the season…

CAFE TALK (13:02)
• Four topics from around the Cafe that “need” our pro bono help!
• Which is better for a playoff flex spot, a proven-WR or a question-mark RB?
• Sitting the cold hand is the right choice when you’re looking at these four studs!
• A MOTLEY crew in this guy’s backfiled makes for some interesting choices at RB!
• A two-part question (but it’s a good one) about platoon QBs and WRs…

WOULD YOU RATHER (18:13)
• Last week: 3-1-1
• only the previously quiet Bengals D/ST sticking it to us!
• More platoon-type QBs – play the guy with the best matchup, period.
• Don’t go with the name at RB when a guy’s coming off two straight stinkers and faces a tough rush D!
• Playoff WR choices = Matchups, matchups, matchups!
• When the two worst TE-stopping D/STs play each other, everyone wins!
• When it comes to these two D/STs, we like whoever is playing the Rams…
• Make sure to check out Comm1680’s defensive formula if you haven’t already – its a GREAT resource

Chiefs vs. Chargers

LOCKS AND FLOPS (20:11)
• Last week we pulled a lot of crooked numbers with a 3-3-6…
• Three guys each host loves for the upcoming week – listen up and you’ll find out who they are!
• …and three more that aren’t worth a start this week – listen more closely to this part!

AGAINST THE SPREAD (24:17)
• Michael and Nate both go 3-2, with the hosts’ total creeping back to .500 (2 games under collectively)
• Three picks against the spread – watch out for those home underdogs!
• Two over/under props – a potential garbage match, as well as the traditional MNF pick…
