Top 5 Worst Fantasy Football Playoff Schedules

1. Joe Mixon Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: at Buccaneers, at Patriots, vs Bills

Joe Mixon has been boom or bust this year. It doesn’t help that his fantasy football playoff schedule looks horrible, as he has back-to-back games of facing two of the top three defenses against RBs this year. He does end off on a bit of a high note, as he faces the Bills, who have allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points to RBs this year.

2. Josh Jacobs Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Patriots, at Steelers, vs 49ers

Josh Jacobs has been on an absolute tear this season, with him now scoring as the top RB this season. This dream might turn into a nightmare though. In Week 15, he faces the Patriots, who have allowed the least amount of fantasy points to RBs this season, then a Week 17 matchup against the 49ers, who have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to RBs this season. Week 16 is the Steelers, who have allowed the 14th-fewest amount of points to RBs.

3. Nick Chubb Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Ravens, vs Saints, at Commanders

You’re already going to start Nick Chubb anyways, but you might want to have some players that have some upside built around him. He already faces top-10 defenses against RBs in all three matchups, but it gets progressively worse week by week. His Week 15 matchup is against the Ravens, who’ve allowed the ninth least points to RBs. The Saints, the following week, have allowed the seventh-fewest points to RBs, then the Commanders have allowed the fourth-fewest points to RBs.

4. Austin Ekeler Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Titans, at Colts, vs Rams

The touchdown machine lands on this list too, sadly. Austin Ekeler has two of his three matchups against defenses who are in the top eight for least points allowed to RBs. There is a little bright side to Ekeler, as in Week 16 he faces the Colts, who have allowed the 14th-most points to RBs this season.

5. Kenneth Walker III Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs 49ers, at Chiefs, vs Jets

Kenneth Walker III has burst onto the scene as RB4 ever since Week 5. His fantasy football playoff schedule starts off tough against the 49ers, as they’ve allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to RBs this season. Then, you get the Chiefs, who’ve allowed the 13th-most points to RBs, which leads back down to the Jets, who’ve allowed the 10th-fewest points. Two top-10 defenses aren’t fun, but he has that great upside in Week 16 against the Chiefs.
