The article analyzes the performance of several football players for the benefit of fantasy football owners. Eli Manning plays with Tiki Barber, Plaxico Burress and Jeremy Shockey. Michael Vick's athleticism is intriguing. Manning had only four touchdown passes in his final five regular-season games, but he'll improve with the talent around him. Cadillac Williams is Tampa Bay's top back, and Ronnie Brown figures to be Miami's lone threat if it trades Ricky Williams. Brown still is unproven because of the Miami Dolphins' time-share system.
