The 49ers and Rams are gearing up for their third matchup of the season in the NFC Championship game, and if you're putting together a FanDuel single-game lineup, chances are you're building your picks around Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford. You don't have to of course, in fact if you're really looking for a top spot in your DFS tournament you might want to fade one or both players, but that's how we're starting our team. As a result, we need to find some differentiation elsewhere, and we're going with a couple of value sleepers that can hopefully help us cash in.

Playoff DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Bengals-Chiefs AFC Championship Showdown tournaments

Two high-upside offenses are set to square off in the AFC Championship game, and there is no shortage of viable picks for DraftKings Showdown lineups. We're going with four Chiefs and two Bengals, but you could just as easily stack Bengals and fade Chiefs. With both QBs costing a ton and big-play pass-catchers all over the field, you'll need at least one or two value sleepers. We're (kind of) going that route with our "Captain" pick, but regardless of your strategy, you'll likely have a chance to cash in your DFS tournaments well into the fourth quarter. Here are the important settings for DraftKings single-game contests: It's full-point PPRand there are three-point bonuses for 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yardsand 100 receiving yards.

Earth’s ancient ice reveals the Sun’s wrath

Extreme solar storms would not only occur in the cycles of the Sun's greatest activity, but could also occur during the so-called Solar Minimum, a stage in which the sun's sun reduces its activity. This is confirmed by the characteristics of a solar storm that occurred 9,200 years ago, recently discovered by analyzing ancient ice from polar regions.
