Conference Championship Player Rankings

The Conference Championship games are this weekend and that means there are only four teams left for fantasy football owners to pick from in this round of the Fantasy Football Playoff Challenge. It is getting down to the final couple games and the Super Bowl will be here before you know it.

There aren't enough viable places out there at the moment to get updated player rankings, though. Most sites, mainly ESPN, have simply moved on and have already started to look towards next season. However, some of us are still in contention for a Fantasy Football Playoff Challenge title and it is always nice to have updated rankings for each round of action. So to help you choose your team, or decide your starters, here are my updated player rankings for this weekend's fantasy action.

Here is a quick look at the games this Sunday.
