For those of you fortunate enough to make it past the first round of the playoffs, this one’s for you. Congrats! Alas, the work is not over, so here are some key guys to help you continue your march towards a fantasy Lombardi.

Nick Foles (PHI) — I would imagine there’s quite a few fantasy teams who have relied on Carson Wentz this season. But the Eagles’ backup could be the answer should you be asking yourself:,”who the @#*! is my quarterback now?!” Anyone else remember in 2013 when this guy tossed 27 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions? Im not saying he’s Wentz, but he’s already proven capable of producing in a Philly offense as long as the weapons are tangible around him. Add him and look for the Eagles to keep rolling and, who knows, maybe Foles will throw another seven-touchdown game?
Giovani Bernard (CIN) — With Mixon out, Bernard did not waste his opportunity as he tallied 130 total yards, with 6 catches for 68 and 11 carries for 62 yards. If Mixon remains out, Bernard has crept back into fantasy relevance at just the right time.
Mike Davis (SEA) — Seahawks fans can rejoice as they have a startable running back once again. Davis continues to dominate the amount of carries per game to Mckissic (16-8) and he’s going into a plus matchup against the Rams, whose run defense that has been soft as of late. Davis is a flex play with upside this week.
Kerwynn Williams (ARI) — While filling in for Adrian Peterson, Williams has put together a couple of nice games with 36 carries for 170 yards. The volume is there and the Cards should continue to keep the ball on the ground in a attempt to minimize Blaine’s opportunities to throw interceptions. With Williams producing the way he is and the volume he’s getting. He’s a low end RB2 high end RB3 as long as AP is out.
