This is the issue for Week 17 previews and Week 16 game coverage.


Troy Polamalu is again proving how much he means to the Steelers’ defense. The sixth-year safety is playing arguably the best ball of his career as one of the leaders for the league’s No. 1 defense.


The Panthers’ revamped running game is becoming a dominant force, led by the RB duo of Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams.


The Fantasy Buzz presents trends to be aware of, which players to exploit or avoid, and the latest fantasy news heading into Week 17. Plus, the Fantasy Doctor offers up winning advice for playoff success.
