For many fantasy football teams last week was the end of a disappointing season, but for the talented or lucky team it’s playoff week! This year has been by far the craziest of any year and the next few weeks should be more of the same.  What can’t change is the strategies that got you here.  Still you should consider some of the guys that have out-shined their higher draft pick, glory of the past years, peers.  Here are some players to consider during playoff weekends.

QB – Mark Sanchez, Philadelphia Eagles

Yes “The Sanchise” has been a top ten scoring quarterback over the last four weeks and has two quality matchups coming up against the Cowboys and the Redskins. Sanchez can still be had in about 50% of Yahoo leagues.

RB – Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers

The communitive cup of youth has found the longtime Panthers running back and he is taking advantage of having the job to himself.  The Panthers are looking to finish the season strong and should look to ride the running game. Stewart is a solid RB 2 this week against the Bucs.

WR – Donte Monchief, Indianapolis Colts

The rookie Monchief is poised to take over the number two job in Indy, so his fantasy value could soar at just the right time for the lucky team that claims him.  If nothing else, stash him until we know more about the status of Reggie Wayne.  He’s owned in only 28% of Yahoo leagues.

TE – Jordan Cameron, Cleveland Browns

It has been a down year for Cameron due to injury and inconsistency, but I think this the week he gets involved especially with a rookie quarterback, Johnny Manziel, likely starting; rookies all seem to rely on the “safety valve” that is NFL tight ends. He is facing a Bengals defense that is vulnerable and has become career gamemakers.  Cameron is sitting on the waiver of 44% of Yahoo leagues, so if you were ever going to take a shot on Cameron, this is the week to do so.
