Weekly Rankings: Divisional Round Value Meter

Weekly Rankings: Divisional Round Value Meter

This article is part of our Weekly Rankings series.

Friday Update Complete

Welcome to the Weekly Value Meter Rankings. This is a guide to help you decide who to start and sit this week. If you're looking for Playoff Draft Rankings, please see Chris Liss's rankings.

Here are my operating assumptions for the rankings:

- The RB/WR/TE position rankings are for PPR leagues.
- The Flex rankings are for Standard leagues.
- 1 point per 10 rushing/receiving yards.
- 1 point per 20 passing yards.
- 4 points per passing touchdowns.

These are the rankings I use when I make my start/sit decisions. Please consult the rankings first before asking "Player X vs. Player Y?" without any other mitigating factors. Of course, I welcome debate - if you think I'm wrong, let me know. But please check out the rankings first before asking your start/sit question. This truly reflects my opinion in my leagues.

These are my particular rankings. If you want a second opinion elsewhere on the site, you can see our Weekly Projections.

I welcome debate on the rankings in the comments. Please keep it friendly.

Quarterbacks

1.Patrick Mahomes KC vs. CLE
2.Josh Allen BUF vs. BAL
3.Lamar Jackson BAL at BUF
4.*Tom Brady TB at NO
Note: Brady overcame a tough passing matchup against Washington to throw for 381 yards and two touchdowns. Will the third time be the charm against the Saints this week, or will he struggle again?
5.Aaron Rodgers GB vs. LAR
6.Drew Brees
