A Roto-Look Ahead – Week 18

Tom Reeve




Many fantasy pools have their playoffs the last few weeks of the regular season.  Over the next few weeks I would like to address the 'playoff' schedule a few times.  I want the analysis to be tailored to your rules, your formats, yours teams and your concerns so please post your playoff schedule questions in the 'Article Feedback' forum.



Looking at a team's schedule may help your chances of finding a good injury replacement.  Here are some of the high and low ratings for teams over a two, three and four week period starting January 30, 2009. The rating is shown in brackets.
