The NFL playoffs are here. While your normal fantasy season might be over, the fantasy playoff season has just begun. Below are some or our lineups for NFL Playoff Challenge. Here's how it works: Players earn points via standard scoring for NFL.com, with a little twist. The fantasy points accumulated by each player during one weekly scoring period will be multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks in which the player has been on your roster assuming his team progresses through the playoffs. A player can earn bonus point multipliers of 2x, 3x or 4x for a given week based on the number of weeks they were on the fantasy team roster. Sound like fun? It is! Join up RIGHT HERE and keep your fantasy season going.
It looks like Marcas is hedging his bets with the Seahawks and Patriots as the Super Bowl representatives this year, as six of his eight choices are from those two teams. His other two? DeMarco Murray and Jordy Nelson, two workhorses on two high-powered offenses. Not bad wild cards to have -- especially since one of them (Murray) plays this weekend in the Wild Card round.
Franchise's lineup is certainly the most diverse, but he picked teams with decent odds to make deep runs in the playoffs, which could pay big dividends if they all do. I like his pick of Antonio Brown in the Wild Card round, as with Le'Veon Bell's status uncertain given his hyper-extended knee, Brown could be an even bigger focal point of the Pittsburgh offense.
I'm putting most of my eggs in the Packers basket. I'm counting on reaping the benefits of double points from all of them next week in Lambeau Field, where they've been scoring points nearly at will. I mixed up the Patriots and Seahawks as most of my other players as I believe their teams will make deep runs as well. My only wild card is Jeremy Hill, but I fully expect him to run wild this week, and whether or not he moves on I'll be happy to take those points and potentially swap in someone else next week.
