Postseason Shootout Winner


Despite having just two players remaining for the Super Bowl, Antonio Gianfrancesco was able to win the Postseason Shootout contest because of a great start by his team and huge performances by his remaining players in the big game. Gianfrancesco takes home the big prize of 50,000 dollars for his great accomplishment of finishing first overall. "Brady and Gronk were a must have for me as they're a great go to connection, which is why I was able to win the contest on the night of the Super Bowl," said Gianfrancesco. If you aren't familiar, rules for the Postseason Shootout contest are pretty simple. For an entry of 125 dollars (or three teams for 350 dollars), you select a roster from all the teams in the NFL playoffs that you think will score the most points this postseason (you can't select more than two players from each NFL team, though). Your roster will consist of two quarterbacks, two running backs, two wide receivers/tight ends, two flex players (RB/WR/TE), a defense/special teams and a kicker. There is no draft or head-to-head games. It is a total points contest. If you finish in the top 150, you are going to win some money. First place takes home 50,000 dollars while finishing 150th gets you 250 bucks.

Studs and Duds: Super Bowl


Wow. That is about all you can say about the Super Bowl. That was some game, seeing both offenses put on a big-time display. Neither defense had an answer for the offenses, making for some huge fantasy performances from several different players. This game was the highest scoring from a fantasy perspective that I can ever remember. Hopefully, all the points led you to winning your fantasy playoff league. Eagles 41, Patriots 33 Fantasy Stud : Nick Foles . Foles was the big surprise in this one, playing like one of the elite quarterbacks in the game. He had an MVP performance, going 28-of-43 for 373 yards and three touchdowns with an interception. He also caught a touchdown pass, giving him four total scores in the game. It was quite the showing for Foles, who had a huge playoffs. This could set him up to start somewhere in 2018.

Injury Status: Super Bowl


Both teams head into the big game with minimal injury situations. The biggest name most are concerned about is Rob Gronkowski, who was knocked out of his last game because of a concussion. His status is below but it looks like all systems go for the elite tight end. You always want to see the teams at full strength for the Super Bowl. There are some injuries both sides are dealing with, but things look pretty good for both teams considering how late in the season it is right now. Hopefully, this makes for an entertaining Super Bowl. Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots . Gronkowski remains in the concussion protocol but has been doing pretty much everything in practice. He should be cleared to play in the next day or so. The expectations are he will be fine and his usual self for the big game. Keep an eye on the notes to see when he is cleared, but he should be just fine for Sunday. Jay Ajayi, RB, Eagles . Ajayi was limited in practice the week before his last game because of an ankle injury but was able to play in the game. He is practicing in full this week, so it seems his ankle injury is a thing of the past for now. He should be near 100 percent healthy for the Super Bowl.

Lineup Prep: Super Bowl


Time sure flies, right? It is hard to believe this is the last week of the season. Hopefully, the season ends on a high note and we get to see a great Super Bowl. On paper, it would seem the game should be a good one but nothing is ever certain when it comes to this stuff. We will find out soon enough. Now for my random thoughts for the week. . . . . Alright, here is my prediction for the game. I'm going with the Patriots, winning 28-24. I think it will be a close game but the Patriots are just too much for the Eagles, especially with Carson Wentz out of the lineup. If Wentz were in there, I think I pick the Eagles to win it all. He is too big of a difference maker for the offense to overcome. I know Nick Foles looked great his last time out but I have a hard time seeing him match that production in the Super Bowl. Tom Brady just wins big games and I think he will win another one this weekend. I think my fifth-grade son was the only person on the planet excited about the Pro Bowl last weekend. He was glued to the television, watching the game and the festivities leading up to it. So kudos to the NFL for at least getting one fan interested in the Pro Bowl. I'm not sure if anyone watched it besides him.
