The 2019 fantasy football regular season has come and gone in a flash. From draft day, all the way back in the summer, to the end of the your regular season just days ago, 13 weeks has flown by once again.

Whether you made the fantasy playoffs or not, there's always room for more fantasy football. And if you can't get enough, here are a few ways to keep playing throughout your 2019 fantasy playoffs.

Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS)

This one is simple since it's commonplace nowadays. Find a league on FanDuel, or another platform that has daily contests, pick your players (you have no shortage of options with all 16 teams in action) and let it ride. There are contests for individual games, days and entire weekend slates throughout the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Playoff Survivor

This version of fantasy football is a little different than what most are used to. You set a lineup each week with whatever players you want. The catch is that you can only use each player once throughout the next four weeks. So if you use Russell Wilson in the first week, you can't use him in the next game or any other week until the 2019 regular season ends. There's no salary cap here, so it's entirely up to your strategy as to when you use each player.

​And yes, more than one team can use Wilson each week, so you don't have to worry about whether or not a player will be available. These leagues are usually a half-point PPR and have one QB, two RBs, two WRs, one TE and a FLEX each week. Most points after Week 17 wins.

Root for Another Team in Your League

So this isn't actually playing fantasy, but it can be fun too. Simply pick a team in your league that did make the playoffs and root your heart out. Whether you're rooting against the team that knocked you out, pulling for an underdog or hoping for the demise of that guy that always goes home with your league trophy, this is a great way to stay involved during the final quarter of the season.

These are all worthwhile ways to keep playing fantasy football over the next few weeks, so try one, two or all three and decide which you like best.
