Wednesday AM Update: We’ve got a few injury concerns going into Wednesday, when we’ll start getting practice reports. Lamar Jackson is the biggest question mark to keep an eye on. At this point I’d say Tyler Huntley is starting for the Ravens, but they’ll do what they can to get Jackson ready.

Gus Edwards is dealing with a concussion, so that will be another piece of the Ravens offense to keep an eye on. J.K Dobbins will be the No. 1 RB in Baltimore, but with question marks at the QB position, I’d expect plenty of rushing attempts against the Bengals on Sunday.

Mike Williams has a back contusion in a game he shouldn’t have been playing . It sounds like he has a chance to play against the Jaguars though.

Be sure to check out DK’s best ball leagues for the playoffs, as the rules for best ball are pretty much the same as player pool playoff fantasy leagues.


The National Football League’s regular season has come to a close and it’s time to start some playoff fantasy football. There are many different ways to play fantasy during the playoffs, but if you need to choose a team for the entire playoffs and stick with those players, you need a good set of playoff rankings to help you out.

These rankings are based on .5 PPR scoring.

Playoff predictions strategy

The longer a player you picked lasts in the playoffs, the better you’ll do, so strategy takes on a different approach in playoff fantasy football. For these rankings, the most important aspect is accurately predicting who wins each playoff game. That is of course, nearly impossible, but the closer you are, the better your team will likely be.

So, do you want a possible three games from Patrick Mahomes or a possible four games from Joe Burrow or Josh Allen? I like upside, so usually lean the second way. The extra game might not materialize for any team if the Chiefs and Eagles play in the Super Bowl, but it does give your team a lot of upside if you end up getting four games from a good chunk of your fantasy playoff team.
