Cousins Bo and Luke Duke and their car “General Lee”, assisted by Cousin Daisy and Uncle Jesse, have a running battle with the authorities of Hazzard County (Boss Hogg and Sheriff Coltrane), plus a string of ne’er-do-wells often backed by the scheming Hogg.
Just the good ol’ boys,
Never meanin’ no harm,
Beats all you’ve ever saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was born.
Straight’nin’ the curve,
Flat’nin’ the hills.
Someday the moutain might get ‘em, but the law never will.
Makin’ their way,
The only way they know how,
That’s just a little bit more than the law will allow.
Just good ol’ boys,
Wouldn’t change if they could,
Fightin’ the system like a true modern day Robin Hood.
By the way, Roscoe P. Coltrane’s middle name is “Purvis”, and The Bar that the Dukes frequented on the Dukes of Hazzard TV show was named the “Boar’s Nest”. Here are Roscoe’s “must-starts” for the FF Championship week followed by a recipe for Yucatecan Turkey
Roscoe Purvis Coltrane’s “must-start’s” week 15
|“Breaker One, Breaker One, I might be crazy, but I ain’t dumb! Craaazy Cooter comin’ at ya! Ya’ll out there on the Hazzard net? “|
“Enos! This is your superior officer RosCOOOOOOOOO P. Coltrane!”
“Roscoe, arrest them Duke boys!”

Depending on your league settings, chances are that you have some kind of combination of the above for your starting lineup. These are the top options for this week and it is hard to make a case to bench any of them. It’s when you get into the players not on this list where it gets tricky.
For most leagues, your team needs at least 110 points to have a chance of winning. To get to this number and above, you will need at minimum 12 points from each of your starters (a little more from your QB and a few from your kickers and defense). This is the threshold for my IN/OUT predictions.
Vick Ballard @ KC
The Colts will take an early lead and then run, run and run the ball. The Colts are going to make the playoffs and my only concern is if they get a huge lead they bench some guys to keep them fresh for their inevitable playoff game. He makes for a great FLEX option with RB2 upside. The Chiefs are the seventh most generous team in fantasy versus running backs.
Stevan Ridley @ JAX
With New England fighting for a playoff bye, look for the Patriots to also jump out to a big lead and pound out the clock with Ridley. Jacksonville probably won’t put up much of a fight. Ridley’s fumble in Week 15 frustrated a lot of fantasy teams (including myself). You may be hesitant to trust him, but I am here to tell you that you can start him with confidence. No team has surrendered more rushing TDs than the Jaguars (18).
Anquan Boldin vs NYG
With Torrey Smith still needing to get cleared from a concussion in order to participate in this week’s game, it appears that Boldin will take over as the Ravens’ No. 1 WR. Boldin will be facing a Giants defense that is the fifth most generous in fantasy versus wide receivers.
Eric Decker vs CLE
The Browns defense is not bad, they had a let down last week, and probably will again this one, but call this a hunch but I say bench even though many “experts” have Eric as a “must-start”.
Michael Crabtree @ SEA
Michael came up big against the Patriots last week, but Seattle’s secondary is much better than New England’s. This is a nice game to see what each of these teams are made of. Could be a preview of the NFC championship game. I don’t like crabs this week.
Any Charger player @ NYJ
There is no need to start Rivers, Alexander or Gates. The weather will be cold and probably wet and the Jets play well against the pass. Who is going to carry the ball? Jackie Battle, Ronnie Brown, Curtis Brinkley? All of them are not very good, so look for the Jets defense to key against the pass and dare them to run the ball.
