The New York Giants have the second easiest schedule for fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs for the playoffs.
Ahmad Bradshaw is 15th in the NFL in points scored among running backs.
Andre Brown has been the goal line back since he played relief-duty for Bradshaw earlier in the season.
Brown is now on IR and Bradshaw will be getting those goal line touches.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis has just 2 100 yard games and 5 TDs on the entire season.
2 of those 100 yard games have come in the last two weeks.
In each of those games he also scored once.
The emergence of Andy Dalton and the passing game has helped bring the 8th man out of the box and into pass coverage.
Cincinnati has an incredibly tough schedule for fantasy points allowed during the playoffs.
The Law Firm is going to sit at around 18 or so in my rankings headed into the playoffs.
Denarius Moore had at least 4 catches in every game between weeks 3 and 10.
Moore has just 2 catches in as many games.
Oakland has the 5th hardest schedule for fantasy production at the wide receiver position.
Moore is not going to be anything more than a bad flex play headed into the playoffs.
Josh Gordon is a big-play threat.
Gordon has not scored a TD in 5 weeks, which includes a bye week.
Brandon Weeden has a good chance to make it back to action in time for next week’s game.
The next three match-ups for Cleveland are Oakland, Kansas City and Washington.
Gordon is a poor flex option in a standard 10 team league.
Brandon Lloyd has just 1 game with more than 5 receptions since week 3.
Lloyd has just 3 TDs on the season.
Brandon Lloyd is only even a consideration at the flex position for one more week, while we see what happens with Gronkowski out.
