Fantasy Football: Wild Card Weekend Rankings

Sick and tired of rankings? Had enough fantasy football for one year? Bad news: We’re back again with Wild Card Weekend rankings, for those of you desperate enough to continue playing throughout the playoffs! Most of these are a no-brainer, but there are some big storylines to watch closely on Sunday. It looks like Bills injured running back LeSean McCoy has a good chance to play against the Jaguars, but with the true status of his ankle unknown, expect backups Marcus Murphy and Mike Tolbert to play some sort of role. It also remains to be seen who steps up for the Titans this week against the Chiefs. The team managed just 134 receiving yards during last week’s win over the Jaguars, with running back Derrick Henry leading the way with 66. Other than that, if you’re all aboard Alvin Kamara or even Tyreek Hill, you should be safe this week.
