The Playoffs are finally here, and I can't help but think what could have been at the RB position. If it weren't for season-ending injuries, we would get to choose from LeVeon Bell, Jamaal Charles, and Arian Foster this weekend. Instead, we'll have to make due with guys like Fitzgerald Toussaint and Spencer Ware.

On the short slate, we want to scale back our cash game exposure (especially 50/50s and double ups) and focus more on GPPs. Rostering a lineup full of players in good matchups is almost impossible, as most of the high volume players have tough matchups (this is the playoffs, after all). In GPPs, there will be a ton of overlap, so a few well placed lowly owned selections can make even more difference than usual.

Cash Game Breakdown

QB A.J. McCarron $6,400 vs. PIT

On this limited Wild Card slate, McCarron is our top value at QB, which is mainly due to the fact that no QB really stands out this weekend (the top QB, Russell Wilson, is projected only 2.9 points higher than McCarron, but costs $2,200 more). McCarron also has the best matchup of any QB, as the Steelers are 25th in QB aFPA. In Week 14 against the Steelers, McCarron went 22-of-32 for 280 yards with 2 TDs and 2 interceptions in a relief appearance.
