Playoff Cheat Sheet

This list is geared toward playoff leagues with standard fantasy scoring (4/6, 20/10, non PPR) and that draft only once before the playoffs and count all scoring through the Super Bowl. So it's a mix of per-game production and the number of projected games for a given team.

For PPR Rankings, not much changes. You could bump Jamaal Charles ahead of Eddie Lacy, Shane Vereen ahead of LeGarrette Blount, Stevan Ridley and BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Pierre Thomas ahead of Ryan Mathews and maybe Darren Sproles up 10 spots, putting him just behind Donald Brown. For receivers, I'd just push Julian Edelman ahead of Golden Tate.
