Colts The only luck involved with the Colts run to the playoffs begins with a capital L.

Luck was able to do this in part because of another NFL rookie record he broke which was most pass attempts (627).

Vikings Robot model AP2K has been nothing short of incredible. Over the last 10 games, Adrian Peterson ran for 1,598 yards (which would still put him second in the league for the entire season behind only Alfred Morris) and averaged 6.8 yards per carry. What makes Peterson’s feat even more amazing is that he became the Vikings’ offense after star receiver Percy Harvin missed the rest of the season after Week 9. Harvin was on pace for a career year before being placed on injured reserve.

Week 17 of the NFL season can be very difficult to predict due to the varying levels of team motivation and player participation throughout the league. When setting one's Week 17 lineup, it's important to look at the week through that prism.

As injuries pile up, all but the luckiest fantasy owners at some point need to find the proverbial diamond in the rough -- a waiver wire or bench player who is capable of putting up some points in a pinch.

Week 15 is nearly complete, and it appears that there won't be any teams "resting" in Week 16. The Texans are just one game ahead of the Broncos and two games ahead of the Patriots, so home-field advantage throughout the playoffs is still in play.
