2023 NFL Playoff IDP Rankings
With the regular season over, a whole new season of fantasy football begins in the playoffs! Here are the IDP rankings you need for postseason fantasy leagues.
The 2023 NFL regular season wrapped up on Sunday, along with our accompanying fantasy leagues. But just because champions have been crowned and payouts have been sent doesn’t mean fantasy football is over. Sure, you can scratch the itch somewhat with survivor pools, gambling, and playoff DFS. But if you want the true experience, you should try playing in a playoff fantasy football league.
And if you’re reading this blog post, you prefer your fantasy football with a side of IDP. So in addition to sharing our ideal setup for playoff fantasy leagues, we’ll also share Adam’s top 25 playoff IDP rankings and the best options for Saturday’s games: Seahawks vs. 49ers and Chargers vs. Jaguars. You’ll also see a link to the full top 75, a list of top options for each team, and Adam’s confidence ratings for all 14 teams.
Let’s start with the league setup:
IDP scoring settings: We prefer Big 3 Scoring.
League setup: You can do anywhere from 4-7 teams. We use Google Sheets for an offline, in-person draft. Here’s a free template if you want to copy our roster setup. You can tweak the number of players at each position (i.e. QB) if you add more teams. After completing the draft, we manually add the players to each team in our Fantrax league to track the scoring. To our knowledge, Fantrax is the only platform that allows for playoff fantasy leagues with full IDP. Click here to visit the Fantrax website and select the “Playoff Commissioner” option.
IDP playoff rankings: While there are plenty of sites that do offensive rankings for playoff fantasy leagues, we recommend checking out Sigmund Bloom’s rankings over at Footballguys.com. We’re one of the only sites that provide rankings for IDP. Below, you’ll see a sample of Adam’s Top 75 players, as well as his best IDP options for the Saturday games: SEA vs. SF and LAC vs. JAX.
