Beau Johnson and Brian Gebhardt bring you all you need to know going in to championship week of fantasy football. Have you survived this far, or did players like Derrick Henry or Ka'imi Fairbairn crush your hopes and dreams? You read that right; it said Ka'imi Fairbairn. Fairbairn kicked 5 field goals for the Texans on Sunday totaling 22 points, and that's the 2nd time in 3 weeks! Fairbairn actually leads the NFL in scoring, but this is not the way that we feel fantasy matchups should be won or lost. Most fantasy managers put in several hours before fantasy drafts, then several hours per week in research to roll the best fantasy lineup out there, and to have that affected in the slightest way due to the most inconsistant position in fantasy football is a travesty. Or at least that's how we feel. We explore this topic as well as the desolate scoring in the NFL in week 15 and bring you "Fantasy Football Fire & Ice" for championship week! Would you really consider benching Patrick Mahomes with it all on the line?
