The Fantasy Playoffs have arrived. I have two weekly fantasy teams, and both have entered the playoffs. I have shared some weekly insight throughout the season such as waiver wire adds and fantasy match's and also filling you in on the status of my team in the 14 team, two-man keeper, .5 point PPR league.
I finished 9-4 after starting 1-2 reeling off eight wins in the following ten weeks. My team has not been as powerful as they were during the six-game win streak. I blame the matchups and lack of depth on my bench. I decided three weeks ago to start handcuffing my best players and grabbed Gurleys backup Malcolm Brown (now injured), James Conners backup Jaylen Samuels, and eventually when Brown was injured I grabbed John Kelly as Gurleys next backup play. I have since also snagged Stevan Ridley, and Rex Burkhead and with this strategy its ride or die with the team that got me here. My advice to those who are in the playoffs is not to overthink it.
Handcuff your best players.
Stick with what got you into this spot regardless of your match-up.
This is my playoff match-up.
