    Conference Championship Projections

    Last Updated: 1/20/2016

    The Predictalator has run both NFL Conference Championship games 50,000 times. This allows us to rank all players based on their expected fantasy football output in the upcoming game. For salary cap leagues, we have added $/FP to uncover players with the greatest value. Salary values represent the cost per projected fantasy point for default public leagues in DraftKings.com and FanDuel.com, two of the top websites that specialize in daily fantasy sports games.

    General league settings (6 points for a TD, 1 point per 10 rushing and receiving yards, 1 point for 25 passing yards) are used to rank players. We have provided separate rankings for leagues that use that type of scoring plus one point for a reception (PPR).

    Check out the Optimal Daily Fantasy lineups for the week here and build customized projections and lineups with interactive Daily Fantasy Sports tools here.
