NFL DFS FanDuel Conference Championship Picks (Fantasy Football)
With the field limited to just four teams, I’m going to gear this article toward my favorite tournament plays. A condensed player pool means we have to make some tough decisions given salary constraints and roster construction.
On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and I will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Jalen Hurts vs SF- $9200
He’s priced up above his fellow QB compadres, but I tend to lean into rushing QBs on FanDuel given that we don’t have 300+ yard bonuses in play. He’s a goal-line back tied for the 2nd most carries inside the 5-yard line among all runners in the NFL. The weakest link (still a great unit) in the 49ers’ defense is deep. Since Week 11, the 49ers have allowed a 67.6% catch rate (28th), 8.3 yards/target (24th), 187.3 yards per game (29th), and 4.9% TD% (23rd) to WRs. Hurts is my best bet to finish as the QB1 on this slate.
