Fantasy Playoffs - Week 1

Yeah it's playoff time peeps and if you are an avid fantasy football player chances are you are in the playoffs in some league some where.  If you are in a good league most of the good players are on rosters so in today's article let's look at some players who may be on your wire right now or on your bench that you could plug in and play today in your first round match up or snag off the wire if you have a bye this week.

Carlos Hyde RB Niners - Hyde is the red zone guy for the niners more often than not.  He's a good play this week vs a miserable Oakland team especially in TD heavy leagues.  In keepers Gore is most likely history after this year so Hyde is not a bad keeper going into next season.

Stedman Bailey WR Rams - With 5 catches in the 1st quarter alone last week to go with 100 yards Stedman has gone from being an after thought in the Rams offense to being the number one WR.  I like Bailey in keepers as well.  He has the best hands on the team at WR.

Giovani Bernard RB Bengals won't be found on any waivers wires, but he has been missing in action for weeks now as far as fantasy goes.  I look for Gio to be back in black today and running wild vs the Steelers for at least one score.  Start him.

Ryan Tannehill QB Dolphins - The Dolphins signal caller is a sneaky good start this week.  I know I am rolling with him in more than one league.

Teddy Bridgewater QB Vikings - I am not going to start Teddy over any established NFL talents, but Teddy is at home with a tasty match up vs the Jets this week and I must say I am intrigued and bloody tempted to start him in at least one league where I have a bad match up at QB.

Reggie Bush RB Lions has been all but forgotten due to injuries and the emergence of Theo Riddick catching the football, but how easy does this home match up look vs the Tbay Bucs this week?  I like Reggie to have a nice week.  He's a gutsy play in the flex.

Good luck gentlemen,
Wes "theShow" Ramsey
