IDP Playoff Rankings

We posted our offensive rankings for the NFL playoffs earlier today. You can check them out for the full explanation of teams we're favoring.

But if you've played playoff fantasy before, then you know the deal: You still want the top-scoring players, but now you also need to project who will advance. Depending on your format, you might also want to hedge on those projections at certain spots.

I'm still favoring the same teams in this IDP rankings as we did with the offense. But just like over there (Justin Jefferson), I'm trying to account for talent as well. Two games from Derwin James, for example, could easily beat 3 (or even 4) games' worth of production from many other DBs.

Also like on offense, you'll find players with injury questions in italics. We'll keep an eye on the key guys throughout the week. Only 49ers LB Dre Greenlaw (back) and Chiefs EDGE Frank Clark (groin) carry injury risk inside our top 30 here, though. Niners HC Kyle Shanahan said Greenlaw might have played Sunday if it were a playoff game. And Chiefs HC Andy Reid on Monday called Clark's injury "minor." The 1st-round bye gives Clark some extra time to get ready.

Now on to the overall top 50, with extra players ranked by position after that.


1. Haason Reddick, EDGE, Eagles
2. Nick Bosa, EDGE, 49ers
3. T.J. Edwards, LB, Eagles
4. Matt Milano, LB, Bills
5. Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Bills
