Silva's Updated Playoff Ranks

Monday, November 25, 2013


Submitted without commentary, these are my positional rankings for the 2013 Fantasy Football Playoffs. The playoffs in standard formats are typically Weeks 14-16. Behind every name you will see the defenses each player faces during that timeframe.

If you see a player on your league's waiver wire who's ranked higher here than someone at the end of your bench, I'd suggest swapping them out. These rankings are not based on to-date fantasy scoring. Fantasy points already scored are essentially irrelevant. This is an attempt to project the value of players looking forward to three specific weeks in the season. The rankings are geared toward standard leagues (non-PPR). For PPR adjustments, bump a player up the board if they catch a high volume of passes.
