Well, Wild Card weekend certainly lived up to its moniker.
Last week’s games included a trio of wild back-and-forth affairs, including the second-biggest comeback in NFL playoff history. Players such as San Francisco 49ers linebacker Navorro Bowman had huge showings on the defensive side of the ball.
Bowman sits near the top of the linebacker rankings again this week after the 49ers downed the Packers at frozen Lambeau Field. However, that’s bittersweet news for IDP owners in many fantasy football playoff leagues.
You see, most of those leagues are “survivor”-type affairs. The entire pool of players are available, but you can only use each player once (or sometimes twice). That means that as important it is to find players who will put up a solid score, it’s equally crucial that you take into account how you expect the postseason to play out.
Otherwise, by the time the conference championships and Super Bowl roll around. there won’t be any players to choose from.
So, with that in mind here’s a look at the top 10 players at each of the “main” IDP positions for the Divisional Round in
