Fantasy Football Fallout: Playoff Edition

Fantasy Football Fallout: Playoff Edition

Gabriel Davis, WR Bills: Sunday night was Gabriel Davis’ welcome to the NFL moment. Davis is a talented player, but we have only seen glimpses. Sunday night against the Chiefs, Gabriel Davis was on the receiving end of four touchdown passes and over 200 yards receiving. No player has elevated their future fantasy stock more than Gabriel Davis.

Cam Akers, RB Rams: Cam Aker’s remarkable recovery from an Achilles’ injury is stunning. Akers has shown as the best Rams’ running back, and the team is delivering on their promise by shifting him back into the lead role. Akers fantasy stock is pointing way up.

Josh Allen, QB Bills: Josh Allen has been the top fantasy quarterback the past two seasons, and Allen put an exclamation point on the matter as he has been the star of the playoffs. Josh Allen is the QB1 in fantasy moving forward–end of the story.

Devin Singletary, RB Bills: Devin Singletary took over the Bills backfield in the final weeks of the regular season and that trend continued in the playoffs. Consider Devin Singletary a top 20 fantasy back moving forward.

Elijah Mitchell, RB 49ers: Elijah Mitchell continues to dominate as the 49ers lead back. I see no reason to suspect San Francisco will turn away from Mitchell moving forward. Consider Mitchell a borderline RB1 in 2022 and beyond.

Jerick McKinnon, RB Chiefs: The Chiefs running back situation has been fluid all season long. We expected Clyde Edwards-Helaire to come back and take on the lead position, but that has not happened. Jerick McKinnon has seized the opportunity and has ironed out a niche for himself. McKinnon has looked quicker and shiftier than CEH ever has and deserves a role moving forward, which leaves CEH’s value in the lurch.

Leonard Fournette, RB Buccaneers: Leonard Fournette returned to action in the Divisional Round, and he immediately was inserted to an every-down role once again. I would expect the Buccaneers to bring Fournette back in a similar role next year, which increases his Dynasty value.

Josh Jacobs, RB Raiders: I have not always been the biggest fan of Josh Jacobs, admittedly. Jacobs was excellent down the stretch and looked the part in the playoffs as well. Jacobs is shaping up as one of the better fantasy values heading into 2022.

Darren Waller, TE Raiders: Following Darren Waller’s late-season injury, I am expecting him to be undervalued heading into draft’s next season. Waller looked healthy and remains the top pass-catching option for the Raiders in 2022.

Dallas Goedert, TE Eagles: Dallas Goedert locked himself into the top pass-catching role for the Eagles as the season went along. Without Zach Ertz hanging around heading into 2022, Dallas Goedert could threaten for a top-five tight end role.

A.J. Brown, WR Titans: A.J. Brown is another player whose value could depreciate due to his injury earlier in the season. AJB could be a value at the receiver position heading into 2022.

D’Onta Foreman, RB Titans: Keep an eye on D’Onta Foreman. Foreman returned from obscurity and has shown the talent we all knew he had. If Foreman is still in Tennessee, he makes one of the top handcuff options in fantasy.
