FFL: Playoff drafts
While roster sizes and rules tend to vary, the format is usually standard in that you draft a roster of players who have made the playoffs, and enter a lineup each week during the NFL postseason. Your players accumulate points only for games in which they actually play. Rather than going head-to-head against other opponents, the team with the most points at the end of the NFL playoffs wins the pool.
Since there is a limited number of players available, a standard-size fantasy roster is recommended, consisting usually of 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 K and a D/ST. Of course, you want to draft players who will compete in the most games possible, but that can be quite a challenge. The two highest seeds in each conference are guaranteed to miss a week because of byes, and the odds of a wild-card team advancing to the Super Bowl can be long indeed.
