Ray Rice @ Patriots - Playing against one of the better defenses in football Ray Rice failed to put up start worthy numbers in his first playoff game of the year.

Championship Round – WR Rankings

Hakeem Nicks @ 49ers - In case you fell into the trap that the media seemed to set about Victor Cruz being the only big-play threat in New York, true No.1 Hakeem Nicks has stepped up and put together back to back monster games in the playoffs. This week should be a greater challenge for Nicks as the 49ers tend to do a better job wrapping up (with an exception to the Jimmy Graham touchdown in the fourth quar ...

Championship Round – QB Rankings

Alex Smith vs. Giants - If you happened to have Alex Smith in your lineup last week, you were pleasantly surprised to see him not only throw for 299 yards and three touchdown passes, but run for a 28-yard score as well.

Championship Round – TE Rankings

Rob Gronkowski vs. Ravens - The Broncos must have ticked Rob Gronkowski off after their regular-season meeting when they held him in check for only four receptions for 53 yards, as they forced Tom Brady to throw the football to fellow tight end Aaron Hernandez. Well, in the rematch Gronkowski went off for arguably his best game as a pro with ten receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns. I'm not sure wh ...

Division Round – WR Rankings

Demaryius Thomas @ Patriots - After being the top receiver taken at the 2010 draft, injuries have plagued Demaryius Thomas and limited his ability to flash the skills that had many hyped about his NFL prospects coming out of Georgia Tech.

Division Round – QB Rankings

Drew Brees @ 49ers - In what could be the hardest matchup Drew Brees will face all year, fantasy owners should still expect him to throw for over 300 yards and a couple of scores in San Francisco. Where Brees may have some problems is if the 49ers can stuff the run, and push the pocket back in his face like the Lions front line did in the first half of last weeks' game. Even if San Francisco has trouble sac ...

Division Round – TE Rankings

Aaron Hernandez vs. Broncos -  The last time New England faced the Broncos (less than a month ago); they did a good job of taking away Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski as they dared Tom Brady to beat them with other weapons.
