The intro to this column is typically about some big storyline from that Sunday’s games – injuries to big-name players or some outlier performance from an unknown player who will be the talk of the Fantasy town in the coming week.
However, we’re down to the last week of the NFL regular season, with most Fantasy leagues already having had their championship game, and most NFL teams don’t really have anything concrete to play for. In the NFC, for example, there are only four teams left alive for two playoff spots, and one of them could see their season end Sunday night if the Vikings don’t win. In the AFC, five teams are still alive for the postseason, however, that number would drop to four if the Steelers lose Monday night. There’s still seeding to be sorted out, but only two division titles remain in doubt at this point, though the No. 1 seed in both conferences is still up for grabs, for what it’s worth.
Which is all to serve as a friendly reminder that, whatever the Fantasy landscape looks like Sunday night/Monday morning, it’ll look a lot different next Sunday when teams are resting players, something we see every year, from good and bad teams with nothing left to play for. Which always makes it one of the toughest weeks of the season for Fantasy, and that’ll be especially true with COVID outbreaks still spreading throughout the league.
So, just fair warning, this is why we tell people not to play Week 18 with the championship on the line. That being said, here are some of the early waiver-wire targets I’ll be looking at coming out of Sunday’s games:
