Before setting your Fantasy Football lineups for the NFL Playoffs, you need to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, the model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. The bottom line - the model has crushed the competition and now is giving you picks for post-season pools.
In Week 17, the model advised owners to bench Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, saying he'd finish outside the top 12 quarterbacks. The result: Cousins threw for just 132 yards -- his lowest total of the season. Anyone who benched him dodged a MAJOR bullet.
Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Wild Card Weekend Fantasy football rankings.
One player the model loves this week: Colts running back Marlon Mack, who had 119 yards on a whopping 25 carries last week and scored in four straight games. The model says he's a top-five running back for the Wild Card round.
And a massive shocker: Eagles wide receiver Golden Tate stumbles big-time this week against the Bears and finishes outside the top 12. He's a player to bench this weekend.
The model is also calling for a shocking wide receiver you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of the rankings, and his team could be in for a deep run in the playoffs. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any lineups.
So who do you need to be all over in your Wild Card Weekend fantasy lineups? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which SHOCKING wide receiver finishes in the top 10 this week, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
