With the playoff field now set, and four games kicking off this coming weekend, here are your NFL Wild Card weekend fantasy football rankings.


20. Gus Edwards, RB, Baltimore Ravens vs. Los Angeles Chargers: With his 92 yards on 14 carries during Baltimore's Week 16 win over the Chargers, the Ravens will likely look to go back to what's proven to work out of their loaded backfield.


19. Lamar Miller, RB, Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts: The matchup might not look great on paper, but Miller was solid against Indy in their last meeting scoring more than 15 fantasy points in PPR leagues. 

18. Tyler Lockett, WR, Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys: Lockett has been a big-play machine this season and had no problem breaking one off against the Cowboys in Week 3 with four catches for 77 yards and a touchdown.


17. Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens vs. Los Angeles Chargers: One thing you can count on in fantasy is Jackson. He's racked up at least 16 points in his last six games, including the matchup against Los Angeles. 


16. Bears D/ST vs. Philadelphia Eagles: You may select the Ravens as the top defense available during Wild Card weekend, but a banged up Nick Foles could lead to this Bears defense feasting on some defensive touchdowns. 


15. Keenan Allen, WR, Los Angeles Chargers @ Baltimore Ravens: Despite a terrible offensive performance against the Ravens earlier this season, Allen still managed five catches for 52 yards. The offense won't be as bad this time around and you can look to a now fully-healthy Allen to make sure of it.

14. Eric Ebron, TE, Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans: It's feast or famine for the tight end who led his position in touchdowns this year. He scored in both of his matchups against Houston this year as they can't figure out how to stop him.


13. Amari Cooper, WR, Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle Seahawks: Cooper wasn't part of the Cowboys of old when they last faced this Seattle defense. Expect Dak Prescott to feed the wideout who has had two separate games of 38 fantasy points or more this season.


12. Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Expect head coach Matt Nagy to get creative against the reigning Super Bowl champs. He should use his most versatile player in Cohen both on the ground and through the air this weekend.


11. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys: Wilson had a solid performance of 192 yards with two touchdowns and no turnovers against the Dallas defense earlier this season. He should have another big game, if they're going to defeat an improved Cowboys team.

10. Alshon Jeffery, WR, Philadelphia Eagles @ Chicago Bears: The Bears defense is the best in the league against the run, so the Eagles will have to turn to the passing game and their most-trusted red-zone threat to have any sort of advantage on offense.

9. Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans: Mack has already found the end zone against Houston this season and will do so again as he has at least one score in each of his past four games.

8. Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks @ Dallas Cowboys: Carson had a season-high 32 carries for 102 yards and a touchdown during the first meeting against Dallas. The league's best rushing attack should look to exploit the run again during Wild Card weekend.

7. T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans: With 13 catches for 314 yards in two contests against Houston this season, Hilton is one big playmaker you must have in your lineups.

6. Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia Eagles @ Chicago Bears: There is no tight end in the league more trusted than Ertz, who just broke the positional record for most catches in a season. He has been pivotal for this offense all season and will be relied upon as a banged-up Nick Foles needs his safety blanket.

5. Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts: Watson has feasted against the Colts this season with 642 yards and four total touchdowns as he's the key playmaker for this Texans' offense. 

4. Melvin Gordon, RB, Los Angeles Chargers @ Baltimore Ravens: Gordon was the only player on the Chargers to have a decent fantasy day against the Ravens in Week 16. He's ​expected to play despite an ankle injury and will look to add upon his 13 total regular season touchdowns.


3. Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans: Watson may have been good against the Colts, but Luck outperformed him with an alarming 863 yards and six touchdowns. Anytime you're averaging more than 400 yards a game against a defense, it's safe to say they can't stop you.


2. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys vs. Seattle Seahawks: The Cowboys struggled against the Seahawks earlier this season, but that did not include Elliott, who torched them for 127 yards on the ground. 

1. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts: With 14 catches for 205 yards and two touchdowns against the Colts this season, Hopkins is going to explode in the third and final matchup against Indy during Wild Card weekend.
