Bobby Sylvester’s 2019 Divisional Rankings (Start or Sit Answers)
The first week of the playoffs was an absolute blast! If you are participating in a fantasy playoff league, don’t worry because I’ve still got my rankings for you all. If you aren’t reading it until Saturday or Sunday, then is yes, the rankings are up to date. In fact, I’ll continue to update it every few hours for you all. As always, if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to reach out on Twitter @bobbyfantasypro. Before we dive into the rankings, let me tell you about three start/sit options that I am especially opinionated about this week.
Aaron Rodgers (GB): QB #3 vs ECR #5
I get it, he was a major disappointment this season but Rodgers was outrageous at home again, tossing out 2,209 yards with 14 TDs and 2 INTs. His 20+ fantasy points per home contest is certainly nothing to sneeze at, especially considering he was missing Devante Adams for a chunk of time. Let’s also keep in mind that he is far and away the single most efficient playoff quarterback in NFL history. Add in a matchup against a merely mediocre Seahawks’ secondary and he seems like a good bet to put up a strong performance Sunday night.
Justice Hill (BAL): RB #14 vs ECR #18
We should know more by Sunday about Mark Ingram‘s injury, but you should know in advance that there is a chance Hill gets a sizeable workload if Ingram is out. This isn’t to say he would surpass Gus Edwards and surely not get the goal-line work, but double-digit touches from an electric athlete like Hill could go a long way in a four-game slate. Add in the fact that the Ravens are heavy favorites and we may just see them turn to the rookie if this game gets out of hand.
Will Fuller (HOU): WR #13 vs ECR #17
The new word is that although Fuller has been limited, he is trending towards playing. Yes, he won’t be 100%, but as double-digit underdogs in Kansas City, you can expect DeShaun Watson to be airing it out much more often than usual. In fact, back in Week 6 when these teams matched up, Watson tossed out 42 passes and Fuller nearly had multiple touchdowns if not for drops. While it is a bit of a risky play, the upside is just too good to pass up.
