Fantasy Football Playoff Projections

After watching a portion off all of the College Bowl games, and checking out talent for the NFL, this week will be dedicated to watching NFC/AFC playoff matchups from a fantasy perspective, so that we can discuss a bit of what we saw coming up in these Fantasy Football Playoff Projections in the wild card matchups.

The Greatest Part of the Football Season is Upon us: Check this out:


So if you get a chance to watch these pivitol games in these matchups, comment below on what you saw, or if they have not happened yet, what you expect to see, or are looking for from fantasy football perspective for next year. As we see the season dwindling down quickly to a completion, this may help in DFS options as well, to keep a season going in fantasy.

AFC Wild Card Weekend


I the last matchup earlier this year, I recall, the steelers had one of their worst games, as the dolphins had one of their best. That included a monster performance from Jay Ajayi, and less of a performance from Le’Veon Bell. Considering the two, I would have them at almost equal fantasy value in this game, with Bell having a slight advantage because of his receiving skill set.

As for next year these RB’s are obviously high draft pick, included in rounds 1 and 2. Devonte Parker is one I would look for to increase his fantasy draft stock for next year, but no one stands out to me on Pittsburgh’s roster at the WR position.

Raiders @ Texans

With 2 QB’s that are not all that here, can showcase possibly other areas of strengths obviously such as featuring the running backs in this game. The sleepers come in at the WR position. Will Fuller and Seth Roberts may work into your plans as sleepers

I will try to keep a keen eye on Lamar Miller and Latavius Murray along with the other RB’s on the Raiders roster to try and determine if anyone should get more playing time. As for next year, if the texans look to make a replacement at QB for a more effective one, will Hopkins and Fuller have potential breakout years in 2017?

Giants @ Packers

In this game as a lock for early round and value pickups for Daily fantasy, count on Jordy Nelson Aaron Rodgers, and Eli Manning along with Odel Beckam Jr. as QB, WR combos.

As a sleeper pick, as well as a consideration for a mid round draft pick depending on how he does with his opportunities, Paul Perkins is one to watch going forward.

Lions @ Seahawks

In this game of course, the lions will have to ride the arm of Matt Stafford to a chance of winning this game in the Hawks house, so he must hit some targets. Those targets should go in this order: 1. Golden Tate 2. Anquan Bolden 3. Marvin Jones Jr.

As the #1 TE for this week, and a top TE for next year as well, Jimmy Graham has his targets with Russell Wilson set, as the rest of the offense is somewhat unsure, but Doug Baldwin is a solid #2 option target. The rest of the offense on both teams will provide nothing better then late round sleeper options going into next year.

  1. Great analysis – will be interesting to see the outcome. Also, just wanted to say keep those old photos coming – seems like a different world doesn’t it? With modern day training equipment and all the developments in sports science (diet, training regimes etc) these guys deserve our respect for just getting on with it! I expect they had a few beers after the game too. Keep up the good work.

  2. Hi Andrew. A nice little site with not to much to go through,which i like. Everything is easy to get around. Did find the video on the home page a bit much for me and felt with a few more pictures it would split the content up a little bit. Above all i found it interesting. All the best. Jus

  3. I’ve never had the time in past jobs to pick up on the fantasy football craze. I’ve always been intrigued and curious. I want to lean more and maybe begin nex football season. I will bookmark your site and research the fantasy football world. Your site gives good information and is easy to navigate. I look forward to visiting again.



    1. I sure thank you there Bobby for doing that and will always be able to help get you started, As I should get to helping beginners in certain posts. Thanks for that mention.

  4. I think you might be right on the money. I do fantasy football as well, and might have to incorporate some of your picks 🙂 All I know is, I sure hope the Cowboys bet the Packers! They should be able to. I will check back in to see your picks the rest of the playoffs and let you know how the picks did. I do believe you are on the right track 🙂

    1. Yes, while I don’t really pick winners I don’t mind do that, its of lesser importance who actually wins the game I suppose than the Fantasy implications.

  5. I didn’t play fantasy football this year but I did enjoy your article. The great thing about fantasy football is unpredictability. Who could have seen the Raiders in their first post season appearance in years without an experienced quarterback. However, the receivers sure didn’t help in this weekend’s game. I am a steelers fan so I was pretty sure that they would win. The just pound. And then you have another “hail Mary” by Rogers. Unbelievable! This season has been so much fun, I think I will get back into fantasy football. You site makes me miss the competition and fun with friends.
