Before setting your Fantasy Football lineups for the Conference Championship 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 Chiefs running back Damien Williams, saying he'd finish as a top-five running back. The result: Williams recorded 154 total yards and a touchdown against the Colts. 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 Fantasy football rankings for the AFC and NFC Championship Games.
We can tell you the model is high on Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. He has 36 receptions in the last five games and has had at least 90 yards or a receiving touchdown in each outing. He posted a 9-151 stat line last week and is poised to tear up the Chiefs' 31st-ranked pass defense on Sunday.
And a massive shocker: Rams running back CJ Anderson, who racked up 123 rushing yards and two touchdowns last week, stumbles against the Saints and doesn't even crack the top five.
The model is also calling for a shocking player you aren't even thinking about to finish high in its Fantasy football rankings, and he could go off for BIG numbers on Sunday because of a dream matchup. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any lineups.
So who do you need to be all over in your Conference Championship Round Fantasy lineups? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
