Before setting your Fantasy Football lineups for the Divisional Round of 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 postseason leagues.
Last week, the model was extremely high on Colts running back Marlon Mack, saying he'd finish as a top-three running back. The result: Mack recorded 148 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Texans. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge week.
Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Divisional Round Fantasy football rankings.
One player the model loves this week: Colts tight end Eric Ebron, who has scored in six of his last seven road games and faces a porous Chiefs defense that has given up seven touchdowns to opposing tight ends in its last six games. Ebron is the model's second-ranked tight end for the Divisional Round.
And a massive shocker: Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers stumbles big-time this week against the Patriots and finishes outside the top five. 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 its Fantasy football 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 Divisional Round 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!
