NFL DFS DraftKings Picks for Divisional Round (Fantasy Football)
Welcome to the Divisional Round! This article will focus on the four-game slate available on DraftKings, which is a Saturday-Sunday slate. DK is also offering a Saturday only slate and a Sunday only slate, and obviously the analysis below can be used for those slates. However, pricing will change as will strategy given the smaller slate. Personally, I believe our biggest edge will be in the four-game slate given the increased size of the player pool and the ability to late swap. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive breakdown on the slate, be sure to listen to the DFS Podcast where Kyle and I went through each game in detail.
Josh Allen $7,600
Thanks to some soft pricing on this slate at the RB, WR and TE positions, it makes it relatively easy to get up to the top tier at QB on the 4-game slate, making Josh Allen a no brainer cash game target for the Divisional Round. While both QBs have a high floor and ceiling combination and can be used across both cash and GPP contests, I’m prioritizing Allen in cash games this week thanks to his elevated rushing upside. He’s run for over 400 yards in his last six games, and in his career, he’s running for an average of 60.6 yards per game in the playoffs.
