Wild Card Weekend!
The NFL Postseason is here with Wild Card Weekend arriving! Most (if not all) of the season long fantasy football leagues have now been completed. I hope you had some success in the regular season this year. With fantasy football contests continuing through the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl, I decided to give some thoughts on the upcoming postseason games through the playoffs as they relate to fantasy football. You can also reference the Targets and TD’s pages to review who has been getting the looks and end-zone appearances so far this year. Enjoy the breakdown of players below in their upcoming postseason games. Best of luck to you in any fantasy football playoff contests that you are partaking!
Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans
You feel confident with starting: Devin Singletary, John Brown, Josh Allen and Deshaun Watson.
Able to start: Buffalo D/ST and Deandre Hopkins.
While you have upside plays of: Cole Beasley, Will Fuller V, Kenny Stills, Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.
The Bills can go into Houston and come out with the win. I am higher on the Buffalo defense than the Houston offense. Deshaun Watson will not be shut down by any means but the Buffalo offense should be able to produce enough against a Texans defense that isn’t as scary as it has been in the past.
Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots
You feel confident with starting: Derrick Henry.
Able to start: Julian Edelman, James White, Ryan Tannehill, A.J. Brown, Tennessee D/ST and New England D/ST .
While you have upside plays of: Sony Michel, Mohamed Sanu, Rex Burkhead, N’Keal Harry, Tom Brady and Jonnu Smith.
I anticipate the Titans to play the Patriots really tough this week with Derrick Henry pacing the charge. The Titans can win but the Patriots have a way of getting it done just about the time they are written off. Both defenses will play a part before this one is over but the recurring theme of Tom Brady finding a way to win the postseason is true here. Ryan Tannehill will have to have success with his deeper options to beat one of the best defenses in the league at home.
Enjoy the games this weekend! As always, give us a follow on Twitter @TargetsandTDs to stay current on any last minute thoughts or injury updates prior to kickoff. The NFL Inactives should be out 90 minutes prior to kickoff to assist with any up to game time decisions that you may have to make as well.
