WR Anquan Boldin - Cardinals
While this week may be the Super Bowl for fantasy players, it isn't for the Cardinals. For that reason, don't be surprised if Arizona, who has the NFC West all wrapped up, sits its stud receiver this week, to the chagrin of fantasy owners everywhere. That is, of course, unless you're scheduled to go up against him.
RB Deuce McAllister - Saints
Maybe it's better if McAllister doesn't play this week: if you've made it this far, it's probably more likely you have South Side hero Pierre Thomas than Deuce. Thomas has been stellar all year in the absence of McAllister and Reggie Bush - and who could forget his coming out party last year when he ran all over the Bears - and has emerged as a legit fantasy option. McAllister would only get some of Thomas' goal line touches if he plays. It's worth noting that McAllister didn't practice Thursday.
RB Frank Gore - 49ers
RB Frank Gore did not practice Thursday due to his left ankle sprain. Still, he said he believes there is a 50-50 chance that he'll be able to play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Gore missed last week's game against the Miami Dolphins with the injury. It will likely be a game-time decision.
