DraftKings Picks From The Full Wild Card List: NFL DFS Lineup Tips For GPP Playoff Tournaments



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

Before we break down our picks, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings contests: FFull point PPR, Four-point pass TD, three point bonuses for one00 rushing yards, 100 yards receiving, Y 300 aerial yards.

DraftKings Picks From The Full Wild Card List: NFL DFS Lineup Tips For The First Round Of The Playoffs

$ 50,000 budget

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

Burrow (knee) is dealing with a minor ailment, but hopefully that will keep some of the field away from him. His silver lining rivals any quarterback in the league, and since the Raiders are only a middle defense against quarterbacks in DK scoring, we expect another offensive blast.

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

We continue to promote Williams even if Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) plays. Willimas has proven to be the most efficient and explosive running back in the receiving game, and we don’t expect CEH to come close to a full workload. The Steelers allowed the most rushing yards per game (146.1) during the regular season, so Williams can also hit on the ground.

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

Fournette (hamstring) is expected to be triggered from IR for this game, and we’re more than happy to play it at its generous price. The field is likely to drift a bit off him thanks to his injury designation, and with the Eagles allowing the RB’s eighth-most DK points, we’re ready to fine him. Tom Brady’s pass-catching RB has been a valuable fantasy asset in full PPR leagues for years, so we’ll keep getting back in the pot.

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

You can also go for Tee Higgins and save a bit of money here, but we bet on Chase to stack with Burrow thanks to his edge. He put up the most fantasy points in a single game of any WR this season, and since this is DFS, we’re going for ceilings.

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

This is where we can differentiate our lineups a bit. Obviously Cooper Kupp can smash in any matchup, but we decided to pay elsewhere, so we’re taking Jefferson into a game that should be a high-scoring NFC West competition. It is tied to one of the best aerial offenses in the league and has a volatile boom-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 going up much, so it was an easy decision to include it here. He’s the natural runner for our Burrow-Chase stack, as he’ll get a ton of volume if this game turns into the shootout it has a chance to be. Volume, efficiency and touchdown advantage are working in Renfrow’s favor of late.

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

Gronk is getting the The main tight end matchup against Philadelphia, and we’ve seen over and over again that he’s Tom Brady’s main weapon when the playoffs come around. It can produce a lot of catches and yards, and as always, a multi-TD game is on the table.

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

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

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

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

Mac Jones will make his playoff debut against one of the elite defenses in football, and since the Bills are only the fourth most expensive D / ST, we like the deal, although it could be a game of chalk.
