Fantasy position rankings for the playoffs
Draft-style fantasy leagues in the NFL playoffs present a unique set of challenges not seen in the regular season. Simply put, players won’t all play the same amount of games. On Tuesday, I outlined how to go about selecting which teams you think will advance. This is a key step in building your draft board.
In putting together rankings for the playoffs, I went through that exact exercise. Here’s how I project the playoff:
- Wild Card Round: Houston defeats Oakland, Seattle defeats Detroit, Pittsburgh defeats Miami, and Green Bay Defeats NY Giants
- Divisional Round: Atlanta defeats Seattle, Dallas defeats Green Bay, Pittsburgh defeats Kansas City, and New England defeats Houston
- Conference Championship: Atlanta defeats Dallas, New England defeats Pittsburgh
- Super Bowl: New England defeats Atlanta
Using these game projections, we can now rank all of the players for the playoffs.
