Weekly Rankings: Divisional Round Value Meter

Weekly Rankings: Divisional Round Value Meter

This article is part of our Weekly Rankings series.

Welcome to the Divisional Round Value Meter. This set of rankings is for this week only, and not for the full run of the playoffs. For a set of full playoff rankings, please see Chris Liss's Rankings. As with the regular season, the position ranks are for PPR leagues, and the Flex ranks are for standard leagues. Feel free to chime in with observations, disagreements and suggestions for player additions in the comments.


1.Lamar Jackson BAL vs. TEN
2.Patrick Mahomes KC vs. HOU
3.*Jimmy Garoppolo SF vs. MIN
Note: The Niners hit on a number of chunk passing plays late in the season - can they continue that against the Vikings?
4.*Deshaun Watson HOU at KC
Note: Bailed out BOB's numerous strategic failures.
5.*Russell Wilson SEA at GB
Note: I expect the Seahawks to have a run-heavy game plan.
6.*Aaron Rodgers GB vs. SEA
Note: Pretty nice turn of events for those who took the lesser-owned path on a bye week quarterback in their playoff leagues.
7.*Kirk Cousins MIN at SF
Note: Got a nice measure of redemption on Sunday in overtime. His reward is a tough matchup against the Niners on the road.
8.*Ryan Tannehill TEN at BAL
Note: Did not look ready for the moment - his interception in the second half was particularly poor, and his inability to get A.J. Brown involved despite an injury to Gilmore is concerning.
