The Weekly MATTchups

Happy Holidays to all! Hopefully you have made it to your championship game and are looking for some last minute tips and thoughts to help you make those tough decisions. The blog will be a little condensed today since I still have a little shopping to get to, but I am going to stop wasting time and get to the games.

I think they do, so I like Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, and I like Reuben Randle and Larry Donnell as sleepers. Eli will get 250 and 2 TDs tonight, one to Cruz and […]
