I’ll examine the guys you’re unsure about instead, as they have the potential to either surpass or fall short of your expectations at every position.

Check out my weekly player rankings for all of your final fantasy lineup selections. They will be updated every day during the 2023 NFL season.

Divisional Round Start ‘Em: Defenses

Start of the Week

Ravens defense vs. Houston Texans (Sat. 4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN): The Ravens defense is particularly tough at home, allowing

fewer than 18 points per game while ranking first in sacks recorded among home teams.

Also, while C.J. Stroud is playing at a high level, he’s still a rookie in the first road playoff game of his career.

Start ‘Em

49ers defense vs. Green Bay Packers (Sat. 8:15 p.m. ET, Fox): The Niners are fresh off a bye and should be more than

formidable at home, where their defense has allowed just 290.1 total yards per game. The recent success of Jordan Love is a

concern, but I’m still taking the NFC’s top seed to produce on both sides of the ball.

Sit of the Week Packers defense at San Francisco 49ers (Sat. 8:15 p.m. ET, Fox): The Packers defense was solid against the

Dallas Cowboys last week from a fantasy standpoint, but I’m not chasing the points against the 49ers. Their offense has

averaged 424.1 total yards at home, and it committed just 18 giveaways overall on the season.

Sit ‘Em

Texans defense at Baltimore Ravens (Sat. 4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN): The Texans defense was profitable in fantasy leagues last

week, but I’d fade this unit when it faces Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Their offense has averaged over 30 points and 391.3

total yards at home this season, so Houston could have a problem.

Divisional Round Start ‘Em:

Kickers Start of the Week Justin Tucker vs. Houston Texans (Sat. 4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN):When you don’t have many kickers to

choose from, why not choose one of the best? Tucker has a great matchup against the Texans, who have allowed nine or more

fantasy points to kickers four times on the road this season.

Tucker should remain productive. Start ‘Em Ka’imi Fairbairn at Baltimore Ravens (Sat. 4:30 p.m. ET, ESPN): Fairbairn

might be seen as an afterthought based on this week’s matchup in Baltimore.

However, their defense has allowed five kickers to score at least nine fantasy points against them at home this season. That

makes Fairbairn a sneaky play this weekend.

Divisional Round Sit ‘Em:

Kickers Sit of the Week Harrison Butker at Buffalo Bills (6:30 p.m. ET, CBS): Butker has been held to single digits in seven of

his last nine games, and a tough road matchup in Buffalo makes him a player to avoid.

Only one kicker has scored double digits against the Bills at home, including Chris Boswell who scored just five points last

week. Sit ‘Em Jake Moody vs. Green Bay Packers (Sat. 8:15 p.m. ET, Fox): Moody hasn’t put up great totals lately, and he’s

been particularly bad at home.

In fact, he’s scored single digits in all but one of his games in Santa Clara this season. The Packers have also allowed just 22

combined points to kickers in their last five road games.
