NFL DFS DraftKings Picks for WildCard Weekend (Fantasy Football)
Welcome to WildCard Weekend DFS! This article will focus on the six-game slate available on DraftKings, which is a Saturday-Monday 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 six-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.
Dak Prescott $6,400
On paper, this matchup sets up well for Dallas through the air as San Francisco ranks 2nd in the league in rush defense DVOA while ranking 16th against the pass. Dak has also played better at home this year as he’s averaging 2.9 TD/game and a 117 QBR when playing in JerryWorld versus 1.8 TD and a 97 QBR on the road. With this game featuring the highest total on the slate and the Cowboys carrying a 26.8 team implied total, Dak projects well on paper.
