Bradford out, Hasselbeck in for playoff week

If you took any advice from my Friday fantasy column, ignore it.

After missing practice earlier in the week, Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has gotten healthy and is slated to start today against the Colts. Obviously, that means you should take rookie Jake Locker out of your lineup if you had picked him up.

Hasselbeck, meanwhile, becomes a solid play against an Indy defense that's giving up almost 30 points a game.

In other quarterback news, Sam Bradford is out today for the Rams, with speculation he'll be shut down for the rest of the season to rest a high ankle sprain. Kellen Clemens starts for the Rams, but he shouldn't for you.

Rookie John Skelton will start in place of Kevin Kolb for the Cardinals, who face the Browns at home.

If you're looking for a sleeper candidate, Kyle Orton of the Chiefs should be putting the ball in the air a ton against the Packers, since Kansas City is likely to be trailing.

Here in Buffalo, Matt Moore will start for the Dolphins against the Bills.

At running back, there is good news for Adrian Peterson owners. The Vikings' star back will return to the lineup today after missing three games with an ankle injury. Peterson might not get as much work as he usually does, but he's still a good play.

For New England, wide receiver Wes Welker is expected to start despite a knee injury.

Best of luck. Go get that championship!
