For those of you still ​playing fantasy football during the ​NFL playoffs, you know that there are hundreds of different ways to create a lineup. Whether you follow our ​playoff fantasy football player rankings for the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs or simply trust your gut, there are lots of ways to create a winning fantasy lineup.


But rather than just stock up on the top-ranked players like Patrick Mahomes or Ezekiel Elliott, here are three of the best fantasy players this week that aren't atop any rankings.


QB: Nick Foles vs. New Orleans Saints

Nick Foles could be the eighth-ranked QB of the eight signal callers left in the playoffs. But if you're playing in an elimination fantasy game where once the team is out, you lose the player, this might be the perfect week to use Foles as the ​Eagles are the biggest underdogs of Divisional weekend. The Saints gave up the fourth most fantasy points to the QB position during the regular season, and it's likely the Eagles are in catch-up mode for much of Sunday evening.

RB: Mark Ingram vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The New Orleans Saints have one of the most prolific offenses in the entire NFL, and Mark Ingram isn't even the best running back on his own team. But when the Saints are big favorites, they feed Ingram. The running back went off for his best game of the season when these two teams faced off earlier this season, to the tune of 16 rushes for 103 yards and two touchdowns. He's an unbelievable value play this weekend.

WR: Ted Ginn vs. Philadelphia Eagles

I know it's like I'm beating a dead horse, picking another Saints player, but Ted Ginn Jr. could end up winning lots of people a fantasy matchup this weekend. Ginn was targeted 26 times in the five games he played this season, and led the Saints with 464 air yards during those games. The speedy wideout didn't play when the Saints and Eagles faced off earlier in the year, but his replacement, Tre-Quan Smith, had his biggest game of the season – 10 catches, 157 yards and a touchdown. Ginn's fantasy owners could get a similar output this Sunday from a player that most other owners won't even be looking at.
