Week 17 programming notes


Welcome to Jim Sorgi week, everyone. Good luck to those of you starting Gary Russell, Najeh Davenport, Quinton Ganther and/or Chris Henry in flex spots today.

If you're struggling with lineup decisions, feel free join us at noon ET for the season's final Fantasy Football Live. We'll have late-breaking injury updates, and we're likely to discuss weather conditions in Buffalo.

In keeping with tradition, there will be no Sunday Scene in Week 17. Instead, we'll be sitting in a sketchy restaurant/pub in suburban DC, watching the Bears-Texans game and hoping the Vikings collapse.

Pregame, pre-FFL updates: Pierre Thomas and Jeremy Shockey are reportedly inactive for the Saints today. Deuce McAllister and Mike Bell will likely split the rushing workload, but this obviously figures to be a Brees-heavy day ... TJ Houshmandzadeh and Chad Johnson are both inactive for the Bengals. If you need to play a Cincinnati receiver today for some reason -- let's say you're in an AFC North-only league -- then Chris Henry would be the guy ... Marshawn Lynch is inactive for Buffalo, according to the Bills' website. Fred Jackson is the play there.
