NFL Playoffs: Home Field Advantage

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

As you plan for your Fantasy Postseason NFL draft, you should consider the historical advantages for teams that play at home during the playoffs.

Here are the relevant numbers to ponder based on games played over the last 10 years:

Regular Season Home Winning %: 57
Wild card Round Home Winning %: 57
Divisional Round Home Winning %: 60
Conference Championship Round Home Winning %: 70

As you can see, there's nothing special about the first or second round in terms of being different from the regular season. The big difference comes into play during the Conference Championship round where the home team wins 7 out of 10 contests.
