This is it.

In most season-long leagues, teams are either starting their first week of the playoffs or -- as is the case on most schedules -- making a last push for a playoff spot or positioning.

So be smart about your picks; it's no time to get cute. That calls for trusting your best players, even if some matchup don't look great on paper.

And if the postseason's out of the picture, the following recommendations contains some good daily fantasy bargains, too.


Drew Brees, QB, Saints at Buccaneers

Tampa Bay has rolled to a modest two straight wins, but don't expect them to catch Brees and company by surprise, especially coming off the Saints' shocking Thursday night loss to the Cowboys that was marked by an uncharacteristic late interception.

New Orleans' only other loss came to these same Bucs in Week 1, but Brees still tossed for 439 yards and three scores. There are playoff implications for the Saints, so expect Brees to look sharp

Sony Michel, RB, Patriots at Dolphins

Michel disappointed fantasy GMs hoping for a fourth 100-yard rushing game, but the Vikings haven't allowed any rushers to reach that mark. The Dolphins have allowed four such games, including Michel's 112-yard effort (with a rushing TD) in Week 4.
