  • Jerick McKinnon is a top-five running back: McKinnon has scored at least one touchdown in six straight games. Most teams have a committee at running back, which also moves McKinnon up.
  • Isaiah Hodgins moves up the wide receiver ranks: Hodgins has scored in five of his last six games and is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season, moving him closer to the top wide receivers in the league.
  • Nathan Jahnke’s fantasy rankings have been the most accurate in season rankings over the last four seasons combined, per FantasyPros‘ rankings accuracy competition.

These are my fantasy football rankings for the divisional round of the 2022-23 NFL postseason for PPR leagues, including some notes about players to help you make your weekly decisions. Rankings in other formats can be found here.

According to FantasyPros, my rankings were fifth-most accurate in 2021, second-most in 2020 and third-most in 2019. I was the only analyst to rank top-five all three seasons, making these the most consistently-accurate rankings of the last four seasons.
