Run 'N' Shoot: Rodgers' Injury Throws Playoff Picture Out of Focus

Mark Stopa has been sharing his fantasy insights for Rotowire since 2007. Mark is the 2010 and 2012 Staff Picks champion (eat your heart out, Chris Liss) and won Rotowire's 14-team Staff League II in consecutive seasons. He roots for the Bills and has season tickets on the second row, press level to the Rays.

Just when we thought the playoff picture was becoming clear, Aaron Rodgers' injury ruined it all. Sure, the AFC has clarity. The Patriots, Colts, and Bengals will win their divisions, the Chiefs or Broncos will win the West with the other grabbing the fifth seed, and an AFC also-ran will make it to nine wins and take the sixth seed. The NFC, though, is suddenly the conference in flux. The Packers, Lions, Bears, and Panthers are all 5-3, the Saints and 49ers are 6-2 and the Seahawks are 7-1. That's seven playoff-caliber teams, but only five of them can go to the dance. Which two will stay home? Don't write your answer in pen - in 2013, the Year of the Injury, everything can change in an instant.
