With the playoffs finally here, the decision of who to start and who to sit is as important as ever.

START
Hakeem Nicks (WR, Giants) - A 100% healthy Nicks should be capable of tearing apart the Saints defense.

Andrew Luck (QB, Colts) - Luck has been special this year and has proved he is worthy of starting every week.

DeMarco Murray (RB, Cowboys) - He's flying under the radar due to injury but could return to form against the Bengals.

SIT
Larry Fitzgerald (WR, Cardinals) - It isn't his fault, but his QBs are just so terrible that you need to consider sitting him in favor of others.

Bryce Brown (RB, Eagles) - He's looked great the past two weeks, but it has still only been two weeks and the Bucs are his toughest matchup yet.

Philip Rivers (QB, Chargers) - The Steelers are a tough matchup and Rivers has been playing poorly all year.
