2017 NFL Playoffs IDP Rankings

By Matt Schauf 5:01pm EST 1/2/18

We all know the big difference between drafting for regular-season and playoff fantasy lineups. At this point in the year, you're drafting as much for situation as talent. Three to 4 games of most guys will beat 1 game of most others.

Of course, that's not always the case. Even if Luke Kuechly and Deion Jones don't play beyond Wild Card weekend, each has a chance to wind up a top-5 LB scorer in fantasy this post-season.

That's in part because the LB corps looks pretty weak -- or at least unreliable. The DL group, on the other hand, presents some serious talent among several teams that look like good bets to advance.

Below you'll find an overall top 50 as well as 25+ for each position group. Any questions beyond that? Feel free to email Schauf@DraftSharks.com any time.

Overall

1. Cameron Jordan, DE, Saints
2. Trey Flowers, DE, Patriots
3. Harrison Smith, S, Vikings
4. Kyle Van Noy, LB, Patriots
5. Alec Ogletree, LB, Rams
6. Vonn Bell, S, Saints
7. Patrick Chung, S, Patriots
8. Aaron Donald, DE, Rams
9. Everson Griffen, DE, Vikings
10. Calais Campbell, DE, Jaguars
