Rachaad White, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: It's quite possible that Rachaad White helped you reach the championship game as he had put up a consistent string of performances for most of the season. But that wasn't the case when it mattered most.

Against the Saints, White was limited to just 42 yards on 11 carries and he caught four passes for 24 yards. Both of his games against the Saints this season were lackluster.

Austin Ekeler: If you managed to get to the championship game with Ekeler on your roster, good job. But if you did, you may have been asking if you should even have him in your lineup, only to get the (correct) advice that you need to always play your first-round picks.

He ended up with 46 yards rushing on 11 carries and was targeted only two times in the passing game, catching one pass for four yards. As if that stat line wasn't bad enough, he also lost a fumble.

Ekeler personally prides himself on his fantasy football performances, making him one of the more enjoyable players to have on your team. But this was one of the worst games anyone in the league had this week.
