Easier said than done (USAT)

Below you will find my Fantasy Football Playoff Rankings for the postseason. These are *not* Wild Card ranks - they're rankings for the entire 11-game tournament. Assume a basic scoring system, no PPR (I can hear Andy Behrens clapping along).

Playoff leagues are as much about team expectations as anything. If you think New Orleans and San Diego are set for a deep run, you'll have a much different set of ranks than I do. You're handicapping teams and scenarios as much as the players. The commodities that get multiple games are the ones you want.

Good luck in your playoff pools, and have a safe and happy New Year. We'll be flicking the switch to baseball shortly.
