Fantasy Football Rankings, 2022 NFL Division Round: Model Says Start Allen Lazard, Seats Matthew Stafford

The regular season may be over, but there are still plenty of fans compiling Fantasy Football rankings for the 2022 NFL playoffs. After there were six games in a super-sized Wild Card weekend last week, only four are during the divisional round of the 2022 NFL playoff bracket. That makes setting up your Fantasy Football lineups even more challenging, but understanding the Fantasy Football matchups is the best way to get a leg up on the competition.

The Titans are hoping Derrick Henry can return after missing the last nine games with a foot injury, but can you trust him on the run back? A reliable round of NFL Fantasy football rankings can help you make such difficult Fantasy Football start-sit decisions. Before committing to your NFL Divisional Round Fantasy football picks, check out the proven computer model playoff Fantasy football rankings over at SportsLine.

When it comes to player rankings, SportsLine’s model has beaten human experts in fantasy football in recent seasons, especially when there were big differences in ranking. Over the course of a season, that can literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last week, the model was extremely high on Bills backing Devin Singletary, ranking him in his position as a top five player. The result: Singletary rushed for 81 yards and two touchdowns and also caught three passes for 13 yards. Everyone who had him in the lineup was well on their way to a great week.

Now the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its 2022 NFL Wild Card Weekend Fantasy football rankings. Go to SportsLine now to see them.

Top 2022 NFL Playoffs Fantasy Football Picks

One player the model is highly regarded this week: Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard. The fourth-year Iowa state receiver had a strong season with 40 catches for 513 yards and eight touchdowns, but he was especially impressive in the last five games.

Lazard has had at least five catches on 70 yards in three of his last five games and had a touchdown catch in four of his last five outings. Green Bay’s offense should be well rested after a farewell week, which is why he’s listed as a top-15 receiver for the NFL division round.

And a huge shock: Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford, who threw 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns this year, stumbles massively and doesn’t even make the top five in his position. He is a player to consider leaving on the bench.

Stafford accounted for three total touchdowns in an NFL Wild Card Weekend win over the Cardinals, but head coach Sean McVay mainly leaned on the hasty attack in a 34-11 win. Stafford threw just 17 times, though he made 13 of those passes for 202 yards. Now he faces a Bucs defense who finished fourth in net yards allowed per pass attempt (5.6).

How To Set Up The NFL Division Round For 2022 Fantasy Football Rankings

The model is also calling for an under-the-radar running back to finish in the top 10 of his Fantasy Football rankings, ahead of backs like Aaron Jones and Sony Michel. This choice can be the difference between winning big and going home with nothing. Only here you can see who it is.

So who should you start and sit with this week? And what surprising reversal could lead you to victory? Visit SportsLine now to get NFL playoff Fantasy football rankings for every position, plus see which RB will come out of nowhere to crack the top 10, all from the model that has vastly surpassed the pundits.
