Playing the Playoffs Game

I've been impressed by the number of fantasy footballers that are getting into postseason FF this year - who knew so many people were eager to keep going? Already there are over 60 of us in the FF Librarian's Challenge via NFL.com. I thought that by the time the regular season ended and Week 18 rolled around you all might have eased off the fantasy train a bit. Not so. I say cheers to that and remind you all that if you DO want to get involved in playoff FF, that you need to do so before the games start Saturday afternoon.

Check out my posts from yesterday and Wednesday for the bulk of the playoff fantasy football links that are out there, but read on for other thoughts as well.

  • FF Geek Blog's Are you in a playoffs fantasy league? - these guys are partaking in CBS Sports' playoff challenge (CBS is also running the NFL.com challenge, I believe, hence why they sound so similar) and both Matt and Brandon offer up their lineups of choice for this first week of playoffs. Matt, your massive amount of Giants love makes me nervous, I'll be honest.
  • KFFL has rankings for Week 18 based on PPR scoring, organized by tiers: QB, RB, WR, TE, and Kicker
  • FFXtreme's Fantasy Playoff Rankings from Smitty
  • If you like your advice via video, try NBC's Fantasy Fix Playoff Props with Gregg and Tiffany (finally, some recognition that Omar Epps and Mike Tomlin are probably long lost brothers; and wow, Del Rio is possibly Principal Rooney's twin - unreal!).
Enjoy your Friday - I will be online for much of the afternoon if you have any playoffs questions. Good luck and thanks again to those of you in on the FF Librarian's Challenge!

Just thought you should know both my dad and brother won their respective fantasy leagues (on ESPN). If they say FF runs in the genes, perhaps it's about time I joined in the fun...or, I'll stick to caring about college football in the fall and only about NFL when my Seahawks keep me interested in the post-season. Know anyone who wants to give me a ticket to this weekend's Packers-'Hawks game??
