We're thru 10 weeks and we have a pretty good gauge on the defenses and how you can expect them to perform regularly. And so with league trading deadlines fast approaching in many leagues, I've gone thru all 32 teams and have dissected their matchups in weeks 14-16. You can check them out here:

2012 Fantasy Playoffs Matchups vs. the Run

2012 Fantasy Playoffs Matchups vs. the Pass

Now, you never sit or trade away your studs just because they have poor fantasy playoffs matchups (Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, Tom Brady, etc), but what you should do is target those players who have excellent playoffs matchups for either bench duty on your team to cover any injuries, or could be acquired for other players besides your studs who have lesser matchups.

Willis McGahee and Reggie Bush for example at RB. Maybe you've got a solid WR corps and you see Brandon Lloyd has poor matchups during your playoffs. Maybe the guy with McGahee or Bush just has them sitting on the bench. Try to package a deal to acquire them.

Maybe Russell Wilson or Ryan Tannehill is your backup QB. Try t trade him for a backup QB with much better matchups those weeks like Sam Bradford. You hope you don't have to start him, but if an injury happens, wouldn't you rather have a mediocre guy with great matchups than a mediocre gy with bad matchups?

This is the time when you make the final preparations for your Championship run. And while luck plays a big part, you can put yourself in position to have good luck despite misfortune by putting players with better matchups into your strating lineups and on your bench.
On any given Sunday any fantasy team can beat another, only to still lose Monday night.
