Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings

Greetings! This is the Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings. You can think of this in a way as the closing ROS Rankings for 2021. Don’t forget to check out my Fantrax podcast The Fantasy Football POV featuring seven different guests covering seven different topics. New episodes every Wednesday morning. Now let us transition into playoff mode and feast on the Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings just like Leonard Fournette against the Colts last Sunday.

To The Moon

Barreling into fantasy playoff mode isn’t for the anxious. You will need the mettle of the following players and then some to be the lord of your realm. Joe Mixon (8th) is peaking at the right time with 288 yards rushing and 4 TDs over his last two games. 49ers RB Eli Mitchell (14th) is the bell-cow of the Bay Area’s backfield with 27 carries a piece in each of his last two starts. The Colts gave up 4 total TDs to Leonard Fournette (26th) last weekend as Fournette reminds us why he was the fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Javonte Williams (47th) is clearly the more powerful and talented RB in Denver as he amassed 108 yards from scrimmage and a TD in Denver’s win over the Chargers this past Sunday. Panthers RB Chuba Hubbard (73rd) will return to the starting role where he has shined before after Christian McCaffrey was lost for the season to injury.

Kendrick Bourne(104th) dazzles us all when he gets the ball in his hands and he is deserving of newfound standing in the playoff rankings. The Titans come off their bye in Week 14 with the hope that Julio Jones (111th) returns to help spark an offense that is badly in need of reinforcements. Jamaal Williams (117th) will benefit from teammate D’Andre Swift’s shoulder injury with the only question being how long does it take Swift to heal? Another RB who could be a sneaky playoff value is Tony Pollard (129th) of Dallas who could be the beneficiary of a workload reduction for Ezekiel Elliott. Raiders WR DeSean Jackson (149th) was born for the role as their deep play wideout and may be a big factor in the playoffs even with a minimal amount of targets.

Tough Times

True leaders find their courage under the most harrowing of challenges. Right now Dalvin Cook (20th) drops in the rankings because of a torn labrum, but he doesn’t fall too far because he could be back by Week 15. Alvin Kamara (33rd) is a unique RB in the NFL, but his knee continues to plague his ability to perform and with Mark Ingram (98th) 5th in the NFL in rushing, Kamara’s value takes a permanent hit even when he is healthy. Super Bowl winning QB Russell Wilson (97th) has fallen a long way in my rankings because he is not cooking like the chef of old since he returned from his finger injury. Oklahoma rookie Rhamondre Stevenson (113th) hasn’t done anything wrong to slip in the rankings other than being a victim of a timeshare where Damien Harris still sees the majority of the workload.

Buffalo WR Emmanuel Sanders (141st) showed great promise over his first six games in the 2021 season, but that’s a distant memory now as he hasn’t scored a TD since Week 5. The Broncos are fully healthy at WR again which relegates Tim Patrick (179th) behind the ultra-talented duo of Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton. The recent weeks have been nothing more than passing moments for C.J. Uzomah (196th) who hasn’t scored a TD since Week 7. The Chiefs offense hasn’t been nearly as dominant in 2021 at it was in the past couple of seasons and Mecole Hardman plays a partial role in that disappointment with 1 TD on 59 targets this year.

My rankings encompass the critical stretch run over the next four weeks. My rankings also focus on PPR scoring. May all of your fantasy football trash talk come to fruition!
