Wild Card Full-Slate DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Roster Tips for GPP Playoff Tournaments

| Latest News Headlines | Google News

The NFL playoffs are finally here, and since all playoff teams are good, there is no shortage of potential DFS stars on Saturday, Sunday and, yes, even Monday. The daily roster of six fantasy football games includes the Raiders, Bengals, Patriots, Bills, Eagles, Buccaneers, 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers, Chiefs, Cardinals and Rams. Of course, we can’t just pick all of the obvious stars in GPP tournaments since we don’t want chalky lineup (and we can’t afford them all), so we’ll have to find a sneaky boom. gold-bust value, often found at WR. Seven of the nine selections in our DraftKings wild card tournament roster belong to teams that should win and ultimately score a respectable number of points.

Before we detail our choices, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings contests: PPR full point, Four Point Pass TDs, three point bonus for 100 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, and 300 passing yards.


Wild Card Full-Slate DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Line-Up Tips for the First Round of the Playoffs

$ 50,000 budget

QB Joe Burrow, Bengals vs. Raiders ($ 6,800)

Burrow (knee) is suffering from a slight illness but hopefully that will take some of the pitch away from him. His potential rivals any quarterback in the league, and since the Raiders are only an intermediate defense against QBs in DK’s score, we expect another offensive explosion.

RB Darrel Williams, Chiefs vs Steelers ($ 5,500)

We still brag about Williams even though Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) is playing. Williams has proven to be the most efficient and explosive back in the receiving game, and we don’t expect CEH to come close to a full workload. The Steelers have allowed the most rushing yards per game (146.1) in the regular season, so Williams can do some rushing damage as well.


RB Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 5,900)

Fournette (Hamstring) should be IR enabled for this game, and we’re more than happy to play it at its generous price. The peloton will likely shy away from him a bit thanks to his injury designation, and since the Eagles are handing the RBs the eighth-highest number of DK points, we’re ready to hand him a fine. The RB that captures Tom Brady’s assists has been a fantastic asset in full PPR leagues for years, so we’ll continue to come back to the well.

WR Ja’Marr Chase, Bengals vs. Raiders ($ 7,400)

You can also go with Tee Higgins and save a bit of cash here, but we’re rolling with Chase to stack with Burrow thanks to his advantage. He’s scored the most fantastic points in a single game of any WR this season, and since it’s about DFS, we’re aiming for ceilings.


WR Van Jefferson, Rams vs. Cardinals ($ 4,700)

Here’s where we can differentiate our queues a bit. Cooper Kupp can obviously crush in any clash, but we’ve decided to pay elsewhere, so we’ll take Jefferson in a game that should be a high scoring NFC West contest. He’s linked with one of the best passing offensives in the league and has a volatile boom or bust profile perfect for this format.

WR Hunter Renfrow, Raiders @ Bengals ($ 6,000)

Renfrow continues to produce as an elite fantasy WR, but its price isn’t increasing much, so it was an easy decision to include it here. He’s the natural back-back to our Burrow-Chase stack, as he’ll get a ton of bulk if this game turns into the shootout he’s lucky enough to be. Volume, efficiency and increased touchdowns have all worked in Renfrow’s favor lately.

TE Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 6,400)

Gronk becomes the Tight first game against Philadelphia, and we’ve seen time and time again he’s Tom Brady’s best weapon when the playoffs roll. He can produce a lot of catches and yards, and as always, a multi-TD play is on the table.

FLEX (WR) Antoine Wesley, Cardinals @ Rams ($ 3,300)

Wesley will be the most unique selection we have. He’s played at least 75 percent of offensive snaps in three of his last four games and has caught three touchdowns in that span. He is not a high volume stallion, but at his price, he is worth a dart throw thanks to his new use. Even if Rondale Moore (ankle) plays, Wesley will be involved.

Other consideration: Jauan Jennings, 49ers @ Cowboys ($ 3,800)

DEF Buffalo Bills vs. Patriots ($ 3,200)

Mac Jones will make his playoff debut against one of football’s elite defenses, and since the Bills are only the fourth most expensive D / ST, we love the deal, even if it could be a chalky game. .
