Josh Freeman has a nice schedule for the remainder of the season, minus a couple games vs CAR and BAL. Matchups include @ATL (9), @SF (7), ATL (9), @WAS (4), DET (10) and SEA (15). Josh Freeman is available in 63% of Yahoo! leagues.
Sam Bradford has a nice regular season schedule after the Week 9 bye. Matchups include @SF (7), ATL (9), @DEN (12) and @ARI (14). Bradford is available in 57% of Yahoo! leagues.
John Kitna has a good schedule during our fantasy playoffs, matchups include PHI (8), WAS (4) and @ARI (14). Kitna is still available in 73% of Yahoo! leagues.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has a solid schedule during our fantasy playoffs, matchups include CLE (6), @MIA (20) and NWE (3). Fitzy is available is 45% of Yahoo! leagues.

Donovan McNabb has a solid schedule for the fantasy playoffs, matchups include TB (16), @DAL (5) and @JAC (2).
Joey Flacco has two choice matchups during the fantasy playoffs, matchups include @HOU (1) and @CLE (6).
Eli Manning has an outrageous schedule during the rest of the regular season. Matchups includes @SEA (15), DAL (5), @PHI (8), JAC (2) and WAS (4). He also has another date with PHI during the fantasy playoffs. Eli makes for a great trade target.
Peyton Manning has five great matchups during the rest of the season (8 games), including two in the fantasy playoffs. Matchups include @PHI (8), @NWE (3), DAL (5), JAC (2) and WAS (4).

Running Backs

Jamaal Charles / Thomas Jones have the greatest rest of regular season schedule I’ve ever seen, matchups include @OAK (7), @DEN (3), ARI (4), @SEA (8) and DEN (3).
Ryan Mathews / Mike Tolbert have a nice regular season schedule, matchups include @HOU (11), DEN (3), @IND (5) and OAK (7).
LeGarrette Blount has a nice playoff schedule, matchups include @WAS (18), DET (2) and SEA (8).
Ryan Torain has a decent playoff schedule, two good matchups include TB (6) and @JAC (9). I’m assuming he’ll be a solid Flex play with Clinton Portis back in the fold by then.
Knowshon Moreno has a great playoff schedule, matchups include @ARI (4), @OAK (7) and HOU (11).
Ronnie Brown / Ricky Williams get the worst two defenses during Weeks 15 and 16. Hopefully Ronnie kicks the bucket by then and Ricky gets these terrific matchups all to himself.
Darren McFadden / Michael Bush have a very nice playoff schedule, matchups include @JAC (9), DEN (3) and IND (5).
Maurice Jones-Drew has a nice playoff schedule, matchups include OAK (7), @IND (5) and WAS (18).
Chris Johnson has a nice playoff schedule, matchups include IND (5), HOU (11) and @KC (13).
The Bad
Quarterbacks
Ryan Fitzpatrick has a rough schedule for the remainder of our regular season, matchups include CHI (30), @CIN (25), PIT (23) and @MIN (26).
John Kitna has difficult schedule for the remainder of the regular season, matchups include @GB (18), @NYG (27), NO (32) and @IND (24).
Ben Roethlisberger has a bad schedule during the last four weeks of our fantasy season, Wk 13-16 matchups include @BAL (29), CIN (25), NYJ (11) and CAR (28).
Matt Hasselbeck has a bad schedule for the rest of the regular season, matchups include NYG (27), @NO (32), KC (19) and CAR (28).
Brett Favre isn’t going to lead anyone to a fantasy championship. During the first two weeks of the fantasy playoffs he matches up against NYG (27) and CHI (30).
Running Backs
Brandon Jackson has a less than desirable rest of regular season schedule, nothing crazy bad, but nothing good. Matchups include DAL (21), a Bye, @MIN (15), @ATL (22) and SF (24).
LeGarrette Blount / Carnell Williams have a sketchy rest of regular season schedule, matchups include @ATL (22), @SF (24), @BAL (26) and ATL (22).
Darren McFadden / Michael Bush have a bad regular season schedule, which includes a bye (Wk 10). Matchups include @PIT (31), MIA (25) and @SD (29).
Christopher Ivory / Pierre Thomas have a less than favorable schedule during the fantasy playoffs, matchups include STL (23), @BAL (26) and @ATL (22).

LaDainian Tomlinson / Shonn Greene have a tough playoff schedule, matchups include MIA (25), @PIT (31) and @CHI (19). Selling High on LDT after he rumbles on DET this week would be a good idea.
Cedric Benson has a nasty playoff schedule, matchups include @PIT (31), CLE (27) and SD (29).
Jamaal Charles / Thomas Jones have a less than desirable playoff schedule, matchups include @SD (29), @STL (23) and TEN (20).
