Fantasy Fix: MVPs

This will be me last Fantasy Fix column for several weeks as I take some time off. I'll be back in time for fantasy baseball draft preparations, and the start of spring training.

With that in mind, we'll call this one my fantasy football year in review. Most fantasy football leagues begin postseason play this week, and if you're still looking for any last-minute advice, I'll leave that to the Expert Wire below.

Instead, here are my fantasy MVPs by position:

QB: Robert Griffin III. The easy choice even though he hasn't led the league in passing yards or TDs. Those six rushing TDS are as good as gold though. Peyton Manning gets an honorable mention for playing like a younger version of himself.

RB: Arian Foster. Fifteen total TDs and counting beats a nice comeback season from Adrian Peterson and a huge rookie campaign from Doug Martin.

WR: Brandon Marshall. Call this one the upset. More receiving yards than A.J. Green and more TDs than Calvin Johnson, Marshall was the most consistent player week to week at his position.

TE: Tony Gonzalez. When Rob Gronkowski went down with an injury, it opened the door for Gonzalez to lead this group. Second in receiving yards among TEs with 770, and his eight TDs are way more than yardage leader Jason Witten, who has had just one.

Expert Wire
* SB Nation ranks highly available QBs, and Jay Cutler is still managing to hang around.

* Bleacher Report lists a few fantasy playoff sleepers.

* NFL News says Ben Roethlisberger could be a fantasy factor in the playoffs.
