Divisional Round Picks for NFL.com Fantasy Playoff Challenge
Rob Gronkowski (NE): Gronkowski is the best fantasy tight end in the league when he's on the field, which is why I advised taking him last week for the 2x bonus this weekend. I don't think I need to explain much here - if you had him last week, you should obviously play him; if your tight end from last week got knocked out, pick up the record-setting player who had the most fantasy points per game among tight ends this year.
As I said last week, kickers are always kind of a crapshoot. I'll be sticking with Shayne Graham, who I had last week. If your kicker got knocked out, I'd probably go with Matt Prater. He'll be kicking through the thin air in Denver, and his team will likely be in a position in which they won't be forced to be aggressive, can sit back and settle for field goals.
Denver Broncos: I'll be sticking with the Seahawks, as I had them last week, but if you're in need of a new defense and are not getting a 2x bonus, I'd go with the Broncos. They are ranked 2nd in total defense and are playing against an offense that struggles on the road. In addition, the Ravens struggled to put points on the board the last time they faced the Broncos' defense. With the Broncos' Super Bowl chances looking pretty decent, they're a solid option for your defense.
