Getting right into the weekly rankings for the playoffs, no New Hits. You can reference last week’s playoff prep list if you are in the playoffs and desperate at one of your slots. But this is the time of the year where you don’t take chances with the long-shots. Stick with your guys, don’t overthink your decisions, and MOST IMPORTANTLY — reference the Voodoo list if you have to make a tough choice between two guys.

I will be ranking the Top 10 defensive units as well, rounding out a Top 100 for Week 1 of (most) Fantasy League Playoffs. And remember, these rankings are based on PPR leagues.

Voodoo Brown
Voodoo Brown started playing fantasy football way back in 1994 — when you had to manually add up scores with the Monday edition of USA Today (yes, that’s how it was done). Since that time, he has amassed 16 championships and 7 runner-ups, with most of his success coming after 2003 (avg. participation of 2-3 leagues per year). These accomplishments are evidence that Voodoo steadily adjusts to the ebbs & flows of the ever-changing fantasy landscape. It’s a different game now than it was in 1994 — hell, even 2004. Rarely finishing as a doormat, Voodoo’s teams are always in the mix. If you want any roster or lineup feedback, you can message him at, or hit him up on Facebook or Twitter (@VoodooBrown)
