Super Bowl LII fantasy football player rankings

Print

The Conference championship round of the 2017 NFL postseason had one memorable contest that further cemented the greatness of a future Hall of Famer, and a stinker in Philadelphia. Tom Brady orchestrated yet another come-from-behind win, finishing with 290 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Danny Amendola in a 24-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He's now headed to his NFL-record eighth Super Bowl start with a chance to win his sixth league championship. Regardless of the results of a game that will see New England as a massive favorite, Brady is now the all-time king of the NFL quarterback position.

While Brady had a solid performance, it was Nick Foles who led all quarterbacks in fantasy points in a win over the Minnesota Vikings. In fact, four of the eight starting positions in the Playoff Challenge top scorers were members of the Eagles. That includes Foles (16 points), Alshon Jeffery (20 points), Zach Ertz (nine points) and the Eagles defense (22 points). The rest of the best in the conference round Playoff Challenge roster included Leonard Fournette (14 points), Jerick McKinnon (12 points), Danny Amendola (20 points) and Josh Lambo (10 points). Next up is Super Bowl LII, which will feature an unlikely matchup between Brady and Foles. Here are my DFS and PC rankings for the big game, which will continue to feature a number of Patriots skill position players at the top of these lists.
