Gene Winner Anquan Boldin 4 catches, 97 yds receiving, 2 TDs With Ray Rice on track, it is now time to get Boldin primed for the playoffs.
Conoon Kim T.J. Houshmandzadeh 4 catches, 80 yds receiving, 1 TD Coaches will be smart and utilize the backups more in this game. With Housh being hot the past few weeks and playing his former team, this pick is a no-brainer.
Alex Bishop Willis McGahee 68 yds rushing, 2 TDs With the Ravens making the playoffs, they may keep starters on the sidelines.
