Optimizing your fantasy team to dominate the playoffs

Making a run for the playoffs? If you have already locked up your place, it’s time to start thinking about who you can acquire to blow up in those crucial three weeks. Don’t go doing anything drastic like dropping your studs or trading away top performers for a slew of average Joes, but if you can pick any of these guys off the waiver wire or find some “equal value” trades without letting on your motive, go for getting guys with good schedules.

The top teams to target are the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans according to the stats and analysis of CBSSports.com. Try getting part of the Browns offensive explosion, Carson Palmer and his receivers, Marshawn Lynch or the JP Losman/Lee Evans connection, Favre and his receivers or Ryan Grant or LenDale White as long as he stays healthy.
