Championship Round, Playoff Challenge fantasy ranks

Print

The Divisional round of the 2018 NFL postseason went chalk, as the four highest-seeded teams came out with a victory. The Chiefs rolled the Colts behind Tyreek Hill (16 points), the second-highest scoring wide receiver this week, and their defense (14 points), which led all units in fantasy points and held Andrew Luck to 203 yards and one of his worst fantasy stat lines of the entire season. The veteran quarterback will now need to be replaced in the Conference round of the NFL Playoff Challenge.

The rest of the best in the Conference round roster included Philip Rivers (25 points), Sony Michel (30 points) a Rams running back not named Todd Gurley (C.J. Anderson, 24 points), Michael Thomas (23 points), Travis Kelce and Antonio Gates (10 points apiece) and Greg Zuerlein (12 points). Which of these players will help you move on to the Super Bowl round with the most points? Well, here's my Conference round rankings for both daily fantasy players and the NFL Playoff Challenge folks.

I'll be updating these rankings throughout the postseason, so check back after each round. Enjoy!
