The overwhelming majority of elite fantasy receivers come from real-life playoff teams, or teams that are at least in the playoff hunt. So, a good way to find a breakout WR is to try and figure out which team could make a surprise playoff run.

We map out our playoff picture, and come back around to figure out—based on our playoff feelings—which players we think are a good fantasy value.
