Top 5 Worst Fantasy Football Playoff Schedules

1. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman and Kadarius Toney Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: at Texans, vs Seahawks, vs Broncos

Welcome to the Chiefs WR rollercoaster. They’ve suffered bad starts, then phenomenal highs, and now we’re back down again with injuries. This fantasy football schedule is definitely a tough one. Their playoff schedule has all three teams currently in the top eight for the fewest points allowed to WRs. Another downside to this is that all of those teams are worse against the run, so the Chiefs might run the ball more than pass it.

2. Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Colts, vs Giants, at Packers

You’re starting Justin Jefferson no matter what. They have a tough schedule, but it gets easier as the weeks go by. After facing the Colts, who’ve allowed the least amount of fantasy football points to WRs, they face two teams who are in the sixth to 10th range of allowing the least amount of points to WRs. A rough start does get a little easier, but it’s not a great schedule whatsoever.

3. Christian Kirk and Zay Jones Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Cowboys, at Jets, at Texans

You may want a backup plan here. Although they are both ranked WR33 or higher this season, and they do face the Cowboys in Week 15 (12th-fewest points to WRs), it gets worse after that. The matchups in Weeks 16-17 consist of two defenses who are top-five against WRs. You might want to prepare your backup option now.

4. Cooper Kupp and Van Jefferson Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: at Packers, vs Broncos, at Chargers

The nightmare for the Rams WRs is not over. After Van Jefferson came back from injury, Allen Robinson is now out for the season and Cooper Kupp could return from injury soon. It’s not getting any better, to say the least. These WRs have a backup quarterback starting for them, and their fantasy football playoff schedule consists of teams that are all in the top 11 for allowing the least points to WRs.

5. Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis Fantasy Schedule

Fantasy Football Schedule: vs Dolphins, at Bears, at Bengals

Stefon Diggs is also in must-start territory. You start him no matter what. They do have a great start to the playoffs though, against the Dolphins, who’ve allowed the 19th-most points to WRs this season. After that is where it takes a turn for the worst, by facing the ninth and fourth teams in fewest points allowed to WRs in back-to-back weeks.
