Worst Matchups for Fantasy Football Playoffs Week 15

If you are playing in Week 15, you either won your division or a 1st round playoff game, so congratulations to you!  To those of you who are in week 2 of their 1st round playoff matchup, let us know what your current score is! After drafting your team and tweaking it throughout the season via waiver wire and trades, this is it.  There is likely not much left out there to do other than play the best lineup you can assemble with the players you currently own.  We want to help you make it through your playoffs and win that championship!

Key Injuries:
QB: Robert Griffin III
RB: Ahmad Bradshaw, Fred Jackson, LeSean McCoy
WR: Dwayne Bowe, Dez Bryant, Percy Harvin
TE: Brent Celek

  • Philip Rivers vs Carolina Panthers
  • Andrew Luck vs Houston Texans
  • Matt Ryan vs New York Giants
  • Jay Cutler vs Green Bay Packers
  • Joe Flacco vs Denver Broncos
  • Ben Roethlisberger vs Dallas Cowboys
  • Peyton Manning vs Baltimore Ravens
  • Eli Manning vs Atlanta Falcons
  • Tom Brady vs San Francisco 49ers
  • Tony Romo vs Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Aaron Rodgers vs Chicago Bears
  • Matthew Stafford vs Arizona Cardinals
It seems like any team in the playoffs will most likely have one of these QBs compared to the QBs with the best matchups.  That being said, the Elite QBs don't really care what defense they face, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

  • Alfred Morris vs Cleveland Browns
  • Beanie Wells vs Detroit Lions
  • Trent Richardson vs Washington Redskins
  • Mikel Leshoure / Joique Bell vs Arizona Cardinals
  • Jonathan Dwyer vs Dallas Cowboys
  • Frank Gore vs New England Patriots
  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis vs Philadelphia Eagles
  • DeAngelo Williams vs San Diego Chargers
  • Michael Turner / Jacquizz Rodgers vs New York Giants
  • Ray Rice vs Denver Broncos
  • C.J. Spiller vs Seattle Seahawks
  • DeMarco Murray vs Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Vick Ballard vs Houston Texans
  • Stevan Ridley vs San Francisco 49ers
Not sure if RG3 missing this week will benefit Morris or just destroy his value.  Really tricky play if "Bob" misses the game.

  • Darrius Heyward-Bey vs Kansas City Chiefs
  • Justin Blackmon / Cecil Shorts vs Miami Dolphins
  • Brian Hartline / Davone Bess vs Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Mike Wallace / Antonio Brown vs Dallas Cowboys
  • Demaryius Thomas / Eric Decker vs Baltimore Ravens
  • Malcom Floyd / Danario Alexander vs Carolina Panthers
  • Anquan Boldin / Torrey Smith vs Denver Broncos
  • Calvin Johnson vs Arizona Cardinals
  • Greg Jennings / James Jones/ Randall Cobb
  • Jeremy Maclin / Jason Avant vs Cincinnati Bengals
  • Miles Austin vs Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Kenny Britt / Kendall Wright vs New York Jets
  • Wes Welker / Brandon Lloyd vs San Francisco 49ers
  • Hakeem Nicks / Victor Cruz vs Atlanta Falcons
  • Stevie Johnson vs Seattle Seahawks
Not only do the Ravens WRs face a tough Broncos defense, but the Ravens are likely going to return their offensive focus to Ray Rice.  They fired OC Cam Cameron and Jim Caldwell is taking over.  They are looking for consistancy and that all start with a solid run game.

  • Owen Daniels vs Indianapolis Colts
  • Brandon Myers vs Kansas City Chiefs
  • Jermaine Gresham vs Philadelphia Eagles
  • Jermichael Finley vs Chicago Bears
  • Tony Gonzalez vs New York Giants
  • Brandon Pettigrew / Tony Scheffler vs Arizona Cardinals
  • Scott Chandler vs Seattle Seahawks
  • Marcedes Lewis vs Miami Dolphins
  • Aaron Hernandez vs San Francisco
  • Greg Olsen vs San Diego Chargers
  • Joel Dreessen vs Baltimore Ravens
  • Jason Witten vs Pittsburgh Steelers
It's not like Jason Witten scores TDs anyway, so having the worst matchup possible is really no big deal righit?
