Top NFL Fantasy Players Heading into the Playoffs
Notice: This was written before the start of Week 13 and is subject to change in the case of an injury or COVID breakout
QB: Ryan Tannehill:
Tannehill is the QB9 on the year so far, although the Titans generally resort to a more run-heavy offensive scheme, they have some favorable matchups as the take on the Jaguars(3rd best for opposing QBs), Lions(7th best for opposing QBs), and Packers(25th best for opposing QBs). With the help of stud wide receiver AJ Brown, you should look to start Tannehill as a low-end QB1 or a high-end QB2 in your playoff matchups.
Honorable Mentions: Jared Goff, Tom Brady
RB: David Montgomery
Montgomery has not been incredibly efficient this year, but he gets the touches necessary to make him fantasy relevant. He averages around 4 yards per carry and just under 18 touches per game. He has mouthwatering matchups coming up in the playoffs and should be considered an RB2 with upside for the rest of the season.
Honorable Mentions: Aaron Jones, J.K. Dobbins
WR: Allen Robinson
Arob is one of the most underrated players in the league PERIOD. Now we look at his Rest of Season schedule and there are no lockdown corners in the near future. Although there is a shaky QB situation in Chicago, Arob will be targeted often and he will produce. Look at him as a low-end WR1 who will be a must-start the rest of the way
Honorable Mentions: AJ Brown, Cooper Kupp, Antonio Brown
TE: George Kittle
Hear me out on this one, there is a chance Kittle returns this season; it could be week 16 or sooner. While it may seem out of the question because the Niners may want to rest their star TE coming off an injury, if Kittle is healthy he may push them to let him play. If Kittle plays he is a must-start, high-end TE1 with week-winning upside. If Kittle is sitting on your waiver wire he is worth a bench stash.
Honorable Mentions: Hunter Henry, Mark Andrews
