Well ... ta-da! Finally, compiled in one handy-dandy NFL Power Ranking, you'll find valuable fantasy stats that would have been invaluable had you had them at your finger tips when it was your turn to pick. Oh well, better late than never.
P.S. If you can come up with a funny caption for this Peyton Manning picture, I'd love to hear it. Right now, it's awfully late for me to think of anything funny. Besides, my power rankings duties are done for now. Overtime will cost you extra.
But let me close out by saluting Atlanta running back Michael Turner. No, he's not the MVP of one of my leagues. I wish! No, he was the Kryptonite that kept me from winning one of my fantasy leagues. I ended up with the No. 1 record in the regular season. But three times I went up against the guy who had Turner. Three times I lost. Worst was the loss in the semifinal of our playoffs. Buh-bye, payday.
Turner, if I land you next year, you better help me out as much as you killed me this year! It's a date!
Now, on to the stats!
WEEK 17: FANTASY STUDS EDITION
1. (NC) TENNESSEE TITANS: RB Chris Johnson ran for 1,228 yards, 9 TDs. No wonder Jeff Fisher wasn't worried about early season QB shuffle.
2. (+2) NEW YORK GIANTS: Tom Coughlin would be happier if he had Brandon Jacobs on his fantasy team: 1,089 yards, 15 TDs.
5. (+4) ATLANTA FALCONS: With 1,491 yards and 16 TDs, RB Michael Turner is best thing to hit Atlanta since sliced Coca-Cola.
8. (-2) NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS: Tom who? QB Matt Cassel stepped up for 21 TDs and six games of over 250 yards -- two of 400 or better.
9. (-1) MINNESOTA VIKINGS: RB Adrian Peterson led league with 1,657 yards traveling. Ended in end zone 9 times, but fumbles rerouted him 8 times.
12. (NC) ARIZONA CARDINALS: QB Kurt Warner: 4,320 yards, 26 TDs, 13 INTs. Even Moses didn't do that well in the desert.
14. (NC) PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: Team would be tied in knots without Brian Westbrook (886 yards rushing, 9 TDs, 390 yards receiving, 5 TDs).
15. (NC) NEW YORK JETS: Favre rallied NYC with 3,239 yards, 21 TDs. That's good! But 19 INTs led the league. That's bad.
16. (NC) TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: After drydocked 2007 season, WR Antonio Bryant made splash in '08 with 1,171 yards, 7 TDs.
17. (NC) DENVER BRONCOS: QB Jay Cutler dazzled with 4,210 yards, 24 TDs -- but 16 INTs are too much, even for AFC West.
18. (NC) SAN DIEGO CHARGERS: Now we can only dream of years when L.T. could pile up 1,014 yards, 8 TDs in his sleep.
19. (+1) NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: QB Drew Brees: 4,683 yards, 30 TDs. But won't get into playoffs, or beat Marino's record.
20. (+1) WASHINGTON REDSKINS: Don't call this D.C. star a lame duck: RB Clinton Portis had 1,407 yards, 8 TDs.
21. (+1) SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: Frank Gore's 978 yards, 6 TDs might not have knocked his coach's socks off.
22. (+1) BUFFALO BILLS: RB Marshawn Lynch would have done better than 1,036 yards, 8 TDs if coaches used him effectively.
26. (NC) JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS: Leading receiver Matt Jones was a bust on-field (761 yards, 2 TDs) and off.
28. (+2) OAKLAND RAIDERS: If you knew Zach Miller was team's leading receiver (744 yards, 1 TD), you win free Raiders mascot eye patch.
30. (-2) KANSAS CITY CHIEFS: When in doubt, tap Tony Gonzalez as your TE (1,005 yards, 9 TDs).
31. (NC) ST. LOUIS RAMS: With 881 yards and 5 TDs, hope you didn't use first-round draft pick on RB Steven Jackson.
32. (NC) DETROIT LIONS: Don't blame 0-15 on WR Calvin Johnson (1,229 yards, 10 TDs).

The wintry storm that blustered into Washington state Saturday night left several inches or more of snow throughout the region, and more snow and high winds were expected to last into Sunday.
