Just because the regular season is over doesn't mean you can't still play fantasy football during the playoffs. There are plenty of contests you can join and there are a few wide receivers who can help you get off on the right foot during Wild Card weekend.


Two such pass catchers are the Texans' DeAndre Hopkins and the Bears' Allen Robinson.

Hopkins and the ​Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts, who have never been able to stop Nuk. He was held to just 36 yards against the Colts the last time they faced off in Week 14, but still managed to have a good fantasy game thanks to a touchdown. In their first matchup, Hopkins went 10 for 169 and another touchdown. You can always count on Hopkins finding the end zone against Indianapolis, something he'll have a good chance of doing again on Saturday.

As for Robinson, he had a full week at practice and has been removed from the injury report prior to Sunday's matchup between the ​Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles

Hopkins and other wide receivers like ​the Colts' T.Y. Hilton are getting all of the fantasy hype, but Robinson is an under-the-radar player to watch as the potential top scorer at his position during Wild Card weekend. The Eagles have the lure of being a good defense, but are ranked 30th in passing yards allowed, giving Robinson the opportunity to explode.

Get ready for some great playoff matchups and some huge games by these two receviers.
