Top WR Rankings for 2017-2018 Postseason

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Here are the Fantasy Postseason staff rankings of the Top 10 WRs for postseason long leagues:

1. Brandin Cooks - NE - Up and down throughout the year, but is the WR1 on the team favored to win the Superbowl.

2. Michael Thomas - NO - Over 100 catches on the year and dominated the Panthers this year in their regular season matchup.

3. Antonio Brown - PIT - He would be the top ranked receiver, but he's coming off a calf tear and who knows what he'll be able to do on the field.

4. Stefon Diggs - MIN - Receiving touchdowns in last three games for the Vikings.   Their WR1 on a team that could be playing the Superbowl at home.

5. Adam Thielen - MIN - He's had some monster games this year - expect another in the posteason. 91 catches on the year with a ridiculous 14 YPC average. 

6. Juju Smith-Schuster - PIT - If Brown can't return, Smith-Schuster will put up big numers.  He finished the Week 17 win over the Browns with 143 yards and a...


Top RB Rankings for 2017-2018 Postseason

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Here are the Fantasy Postseason staff rankings of the Top 12 RBs for postseason long leagues:

1. Le'Veon Bell - PIT - Bell's YPG averages are down in both the pass and run game.  But he's been a stud in the playoffs and we expect him to play at least 2 games. 

2. Dion Lewis - NE - We all know that we can't trust a Patriots RB in fantasy right?  Lewis has bucked the trend and has been consistently getting touches. With over 30 touches per game in the last two games, Lewis is primed to hold down the backfield during the Pats postseason run.

3. Todd Gurley - LAR - Breakout season for this Georgia back. Problem is they have a tough first round matchup vs the defending NFC champs and they could only play 1 game.

4. Jay Ajayi - PHI - Expect Foles to hand the ball off a lot to Ajayi. The Eagles lost their offensive leader when Wentz went down but they still have home field throughout the NFC playoffs.

5. Latavius Murray - MIN - Murray is...


Top QB Rankings for 2017-2018 Postseason

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Here are the Fantasy Postseason staff rankings of the Top 12 QBs for the postseason:

1. Tom Brady - NE - Brady's output has slumped a bit towards the end of the season, but he leads the team with the best chance to win the Superbowl (again).

2. Ben Roethlisberger  - PIT - Pittsburgh should play 2 games.  The question is whether or not PIT can break the curse and beat NE in Foxborough.

3. Case Keenum - MIN - FiveThirtyEight.com gives the Vikings a 33% chance of playing at home for the Superbowl and Keenum has been efficient this season with 22 TD against 7 INTs.

4. Drew Brees - NO - Brees had a strong run game to lean upon this year and that is evidenced by his 270 YPG passing average (lowest since 2005). The Saints are a solid team, with a twin rushing attack of Kamara and Ingram, but will need to win a few games on the road to get to the Superbowl.

5. Alex Smith - KC - The Chiefs should play 2 games and Alex Smith is having a strong year. While they lost...

Fantasy Playoffs is About Filling Holes

     Ryan Dowell

Entering Week 14 of the NFL season, nearly every fantasy league, regardless of how screwy its settings are, is either in the playoffs already or getting there next week. Not all owners will make it to hallowed postseason play. Those in contention will have some big decisions to make this weekend...not the least of which resides in New England.

Gronk Alternative

Owners of Rob Gronkowski may not have made the fantasy playoffs. It would be understandable if they came up short. Gronkowski, the clear-cut top TE preseason, ranks just 10th at the position through 13 weeks. Using a first-round pick on a tight end that misses half the year and then gets put on injured reserve is a hard obstacle to overcome. If someone did make it through the regular season, though, they will need a starting tight end for Week 14. 

Looking outside the top 12 at the position to someone who may have found his way to waivers, Cody Fleener is an interesting option. Fleener had a lot of...
