    Please help set this desperate Canadian's team!!!

    Please help set my lineup for a crucial playoff semi-final matchup in a standard Yahoo head-to-head scoring league. If only I knew as much about football as I do hockey. Below is my roster and why I set it.

    QB: Tom Brady (NE - QB) @ GB
    WR: DeSean Jackson (PHI - WR) @ NYG
    WR: Joe Webb (MIN - QB,WR) @ CHI
    WR: Wes Welker (NE - WR) @ GB
    RB: Ryan Torain (WAS - RB) @ DAL
    RB: Danny Woodhead (NE - WR,RB) @ GB
    TE: Vernon Davis (SF - TE) @ SD
    K: David Akers (PHI - K) @ NYG
    DEF: Tampa Bay (TB - DEF) @ DET

    Drew Brees (NO - QB) @ BAL
    Santonio Holmes (NYJ - WR) @ PIT
    Santana Moss (WAS - WR) @ DAL
    Rashard Mendenhall (PIT - RB) @ NYJ
    LaDainian Tomlinson (NYJ - RB) @ PIT
    Ricky Williams (MIA - RB) @ BUF

    QB: Brady, Brees, Webb. While the Packers have allowed fewer fantasy points to QBs than the Ravens, Brady has been on fire since Thanksgiving. So I am thinking Brady over Brees. No chance I'm playing Webb at QB over those two. Brady wins.

    WR: Holmes, Jackson, Moss, Webb, Welker, Woodhead. This is my toughest position. Holmes has a decent match against the Steelers, but a cold QB in Sanchez. Jackson has been incredible with Vick. Moss has a very favourable matchup against the worst WR pass defense in the NFL, but his QB is also questionable. Webb will have a horrible QB game against Chicago, but a horrible QB game should still get me more fantasy points than most of my WR, so I'll play him here. Welker and Woodhead have a tough Packers defense, but NE is hot as hell right now, so I want to play them both. Tough choice, but Jackson, Webb, and Welker win.

    RB: Mendenhall, Tomlinson, Torrain, Williams, Woodhead. Mendenhall faces a tough Jets defense. Tomlinson has been rusty this second half of the season, been months since last TD I believe. Torrain was scorching last week and should do quite fine against Cowboys. Williams has a favourable matchup against the Bills. Woodhead, as mentioned, is with the hot Patriots. Torrain and Woodhead win.

    TE: Davis. Vernon Davis... 'nuff said.

    K: David Akers. Reliable. Philly-Jets should be a high scoring game.

    DEF: Tampa takes on lowly Detroit. Other available free agent options include Oakland, Carolina, Arizona, and New Orleans.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
