Fantasy Football Rankings, AFC, NFC Championship 2022: Model says start Matthew Stafford, sit Odell Beckham Jr

Selecting your Fantasy football picks could be challenging on Sunday in the 2022 NFL playoffs, but it will be particularly difficult to whittle down the options at wide receiver. The NFL’s leading wideout, Cooper Kupp, could be a popular option given his record-setting year. However, receivers like Deebo Samuel, Ja’Marr Chase and Tyreek Hill could also be excellent candidates for your Fantasy football lineups. Where should every receiver be in your Fantasy football rankings?

There are only three games left in the NFL season, so it is important to look at quality Fantasy football advice. Before locking in in your Fantasy football lineups for the NFC and AFC Championship Games, be sure to check out the playoff Fantasy football rankings from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine’s model beat human experts in Fantasy football for the past several seasons especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Bills quarterback Josh Allen, ranking him as the top player at his position. The result: Allen threw for 329 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 68 yards. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.

Now, the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its 2022 NFL championship round Fantasy football rankings. Head to SportsLine now to see them.

Top 2022 NFL Playoffs Fantasy football picks 

One player the model is high on this week: Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford. He threw for 366 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Tampa Bay last week, finishing with the second-most passing yards of the eight divisional round quarterbacks. He also rushed for a touchdown to cap off a strong performance.

Stafford threw for 238 yards and three touchdowns in a game against San Francisco to finish the regular season. He has gone two straight games without an interception after throwing eight over his previous four games, which is an excellent sign heading into the NFC Championship. SportsLine’s model has him listed as the No. 2 quarterback heading into the next round of the NFL playoff bracket.

And a massive shocker: Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. stumbles big-time and doesn’t even crack the top five at his position. Beckham finished with six catches for 69 yards in Los Angeles’ 30-27 victory over the Buccaneers. While he didn’t find the end zone against Tampa Bay, Beckham has become an important piece in Los Angeles’ red zone offense. In fact, Beckham has scored a touchdown in six of his last nine games. 

However, Beckham was held in check the last time the Rams squared off against the 49ers. San Francisco’s defense limited him to just two receptions for 18 yards in the 49ers’ 27-24 victory on Jan. 9. With such a tough matchup on Sunday, Beckham is a player to consider putting on the bench.

The model is also calling for an under-the-radar wide receiver to finish in the top six of its Fantasy football rankings, ahead of wideouts like Odell Beckham Jr. and Tyler Boyd. This pick could be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.

So who should you start and sit this week? And which surprising wide receiver could lead you to victory? Visit SportsLine now to get NFL playoff Fantasy football rankings for every position, plus see which WR is going to come out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that has out-performed experts big-time.
