We are into the nitty-gritty of the fantasy playoffs, so let’s get down to business with some injury updates, a few waiver-wire pickups if you’re desperate, and more. If your squad needs help, shoot me a note. And feel free to leave your...

If Marc Bulger leaves Baltimore as a free agent this offseason to become a starter elsewhere, the Ravens will likely be in the market for another able veteran to back up fourth-year quarterback Joe Flacco. Might that veteran signal-caller be Donovan...

Four NFL teams, four distinctly different situations, and one identical, well-worn audible:
