NFL Playoff League Rankings for Fantasy Football: Miles Sanders, Mike Evans, James Conner, Aaron Jones, Deebo Samuel

leonard fournette fantasy football rankings news NFL DFS lineup picks

The NFL playoffs are starting this week, and with that comes different types of fantasy football contests geared towards the playoffs. Below are our fantasy football playoff league rankings to help you make the best decision for your playoff league rosters.

Playoff leagues are a fun way to kick off a fresh new fantasy football contest for the NFL postseason. For most of us, we've been left with a void and that weekly excitement with season-long fantasy football leagues all wrapped up. There will be DFS contests all through the Super Bowl, but playoff league formats are really fun and replicate that season-long feel. Most of these contests will require you to choose only a single player from each NFL team, and to fill out a certain amount of rosters spots at each position. There are many different contests out there, but our friends at FFPC of course hold the biggest and best Playoff Challenge tournament with a $500K grand prize to the first place winner.

Our rankings below are geared towards playoff league formats, and take into account how far we think each team will get in the NFL playoffs. The goal is to choose the best combination of players that will play the most games, and score the most points. In addition to our staff rankings, below you will also find a summary of the important fantasy football injury news for this week. There are many key injuries and COVID-19 situations to keep track of, so be sure to check back until kickoff. Good luck RotoBallers!

NFL Playoffs Injury Updates for Fantasy Football


Playoff League Fantasy Football Rankings

A big congrats to our very own Nick Mariano who once again finished as a top-10 ranker in 2021 across the entire fantasy football industry!

Note that quarterbacks, defenses and kickers are all grouped separately towards the bottom. Each of those positions is ranked on their own. This helps to compare running backs, wide receivers and tight ends for FLEX spots (without QB, DEF, K mixed in).
