Each week NFL Network and NFL.com Fantasy Football Editor Michael Fabiano joins Sports360AZ.com’s Brad Cesmat to share his insight on building and developing your fantasy team for success.

Here are some hi-lights from our most recent conversation (November 26th) with the Fantasy Sports Writer’s Association Hall of Famer.

Is the Chiefs’ defense still worth keeping and starting down the stretch? “Right now if you’re the type of owner who doesn’t like to roster two defenses than no…their defense is hurting right now. If you don’t like to keep that second defense, I wouldn’t be telling people to drop the Chiefs defense across the board because they actually have a good matchup coming up in Week 14 [Washington].”

Where are you at on Andrew Luck at this point of the season if you have another options? “To be quite honest he’s become a match-up based starter because of the loss of Reggie Wayne and the fact the Colts are struggling right now offensively. They don’t have much of a running game. The saving grace for Andrew Luck is that he can always give you some rushing yards and a rushing touchdown here or there…I say he’s a match-up based starter right now, especially if he’s on the road.”

If I add Philip Rivers should I drop Fitzpatrick of Keenum? I also have Nick Foles on my roster. “How is Rivers still a free agent? Wow. This has to be a very small league. Yes, absolutely pick up Rivers. I would probably drop Case Keenum but I don’t really like having three quarterbacks on my roster unless I have to start two so if you don’t need that third quarterback and I don’t see why you would, I would drop Fitzpatrick too and pick up another player to help you down the stretch run. A potential sleeper off the free-agent market or handcuff to one of your best running backs. With Rivers and Foles I think you’re good.”
