20 Players Who Can Lead Owners To Fantasy Football Championships
Who Makes The List?
If you are in the playoffs for fantasy football, the time has come to find those sleeper candidates and those players who will get you the title you have coveted since draft day. I have put together 20 players that should be on your roster or you should be thinking about as the playoffs get underway this week. There are obvious choices and some that might be off the will probably surprise you.
There are a lot of people who want to ride the players who got them to this point and into the playoffs wherever they have landed seeding-wise. At this point, the seed you have really doesn’t matter. It is more about who you have on your roster. There are bragging rights on the line along with much, much more in certain leagues so having the right players in your lineup becomes a necessary evil. You should spend some time before kickoff of the first game for the week finding some of these players out there and starting them if available. You should always be looking at the injury report as well every single day at this point to see if someone isn’t going to play or if one of your players is out or could miss the game.
Here is my list of 20 fantasy players who can win you a championship. I wish you the best of luck over the next three weeks in winning your fantasy title. It has been a long season and the payoff is now just around the corner.
