Your fantasy football playoffs are just a few short weeks away, so here’s the preface for this edition of ETB’s vaunted weekly position ranks: if you’re still in the hunt, better not f*** up! And if you’re not, don’t be that guy who sulks in the corner and stops setting their starting lineup each week.

There’s absolutely nothing worse than “that guy,” and we know you know what we’re talking about. It’s not even about having pride in your loser of a fantasy squad–nope. It’s about having some respect for the guys who are still fighting for a playoff berth by at least putting your best foot forward in your season-ending head-to-head matchups. If you lay down like Marc Bulger facing a pass rush in a collapsing pocket, thereby giving your opponent an easy victory, you could very well be costing one of us a precious opportunity to gain ground on said opponent.

Know what I’m saying?

So please, do your fellow fantasy football leaguers a solid and make sure you have someone who’s actually playing on Sunday in your starting lineup. Leaving RBs, WRs, and TEs in there who are on IR or have been benched is just insulting.

Lecture over. With that out of the way, don’t forget that tonight sees the Cincinnati Bungles host the Pittsburgh Steelers, so plan accordingly. (By the way, this is the lowest we’ve ranked Brian Westbrook in a long, long time–start him at your own risk. And we can’t rank Reggie Bush any higher until we’ve seen him on the field, how many snaps he’s getting, etc.)
