Fantasy football rankings: Patrick Mahomes points the way to paydirt
For the final time this season, we are ranking players from the four divisional playoff games this weekend. Many playoff formats give additional weight to players whose teams advance to the next round by doubling/tripling/etc. their point totals. But for our purposes, we're sticking to their projected performances for just this weekend's games.
Our fantasy football rankings are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.
Rankings are compiled by FantasySharks.com.
