Here are our previews of Sunday's AFC and NFC Championship Games from a fantasy perspective. If you're still playing in a fantasy playoff pool, we tell you who will be your best and possibly least productive starting options.

Carolina at Seattle
The Seahawks will try to focus on containing WR Steve Smith, of course, but the Panthers might come out in multiple-receiver sets to further challenge Seattle's secondary. If the Seahawks can't get enough pressure from their front four or by blitzing LBs, dropping an extra defensive back into coverage still might not be enough to contain QB Jake Delhomme. He might take a few shots to WR Drew Carter downfield, WR and Ricky Proehl will be a key target on third downs.
