Wild Card FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS Lineup Tips For Daily Fantasy Football Tournaments

Must read


The NFL has extended Wildcard Weekend to six games this year, and DFS managers are certainly happy to have more players to choose from if they play the full playoff roster Saturday through Sunday. While it is a bit harder to focus on the best choices, you have more options and potential value ties. Our FanDuel tournament lineup does away with a few of the more expensive players (Derrick Henry, Stefon Diggs) and instead focuses on multiple game breakers under the radar with a multi-TD advantage.

Of course, we wouldn’t be using such a strategy without some solid anchors, and the Ravens trio of Lamar Jackson, JK Dobbins and Mark Andrews provide that foundation. From there we take risks, but to really hit it big in a tournament it’s a necessary strategy.

Wild Card FanDuel Picks: NFL DFS Cash Range

QB Lamar Jackson, Ravens @ Titans ($ 9,300). With so many high potential QBs playing this week, it might seem odd paying top dollar for Jackson, but he’s having a fantastic game and still has a high cap. He’s torched poor defenses in Baltimore’s last five games (161.8 passing yards, 2.2 passing touchdowns, 86 rushing yards, 0.8 rushing TDs), and Tennessee qualifies like another favorable match. To be fair, the Titans limited Jackson in the regular season (186 passing yards, 51 rushing yards, one TD), but Jackson should certainly have his revenge in mind after losing to Tennessee last year in the playoffs. .

RB Nyheim Hines, Colts @ Bills ($ 5,600). Jonathan Taylor has been a force in the Colts’ last seven games, but Hines himself has been solid in the second half. In Indy’s last eight games, he’s averaged 66.9 yards and 4.4 receptions while scoring three times. In a game where the Colts might find themselves forced to pitch more to keep up with Buffalo’s offense, Hines has real value, even in FanDuel’s half-point PPR format. He’s got three multi-TD games this year, so he’s not even necessarily a low cap game, especially at this price point.


RB JK Dobbins, Ravens @ Titans ($ 6,800). It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Ravens rely more on Dobbins in this game. In his last six games, he’s averaged 82.5 yards and scored seven total touchdowns, but he did so with just 12.8 carries per game. That stretch began with a 70-yard, two-touchdown effort against the Titans. Last week, in a game to win, he received 13 races despite Baltimore taking a big lead early on. Dobbins should have plenty of opportunities against Tennessee’s porous running defense, and he and Jackson should continue to post big stats.

WR Terry McLaurin, Washington vs. Buccaneers ($ 7,100). McLaurin returned from an ankle injury last week, catching seven of eight targets for 40 yards and a touchdown. He was one of football’s most consistent receivers for the first twelve weeks or so before slowing down the streak, but with 14 catches on 20 targets in his last two games you know he’s always going to have some. looks. Tampa is forcing teams to pass, and it wouldn’t be surprising for Washington to play from behind for most of this game. This means more opportunities for the explosive McLaurin, who can easily pay this price.

WR Chase Claypool, Steelers vs. Browns ($ 6,100). Claypool got back on track against the Browns last week, catching five of 11 targets for 101 yards and a touchdown. It was the first time he has scored since Week 11 and the first time he has posted more than 59 yards since Week 9. This relative lack of production is worrisome, but the game gives us hope. Claypool had at least 74 receiving yards and scored in both games against Cleveland this year, and he’s got the kind of big advantage that can carry lineups that give him a shot over the cash line.

TE Mark Andrews, Ravens @ Titans ($ 7,000). Andrews hasn’t been a consistent touchdown producer this year, but in his last six games he’s averaged 5.3 catches, 7.3 targets and 67.3 yards. That’s solid for a TE, and Andrews could be targeted even more frequently in a game to win. He posted a 5-96-1 line against Tennessee earlier this year, and those types of numbers wouldn’t be crazy anymore given the Titans’ mediocrity against tight ends. Andrews is the most expensive TE, but it is also the most secure.

FLEX John Brown, Bills vs Colts ($ 5,700). Brown came back from a long layoff in Week 17, catching all four targets for 72 yards and a TD. He showed no signs of an ankle injury that was slowing him down, nor did he take the place of breakout rookie Gabriel Davis. If Cole Beasley (knee) plays we might rethink that choice, but since Beasley is still not training we love that Brown is heavily involved against a Colts pass defense that really struggled down the home stretch. . He’s a great Stefon Diggs pivot, much more expensive and much more popular.

D / ST Seattle Seahawks vs. Rams ($ 3,600). Seattle has had a higher floor than you might think in its last eight games, limiting infractions to 16 points per fight and racking up at least three sacks in all but one game. With Los Angeles starting with Jared Goff (inch) or John Wolford, the Seahawks should be able to capitalize with at least one or two turnovers to go along with whatever they do. As the second cheapest D / ST on the slate, they offer tremendous value.
