NFL DFS FanDuel Picks for Conference Championship (Fantasy Football)
With only two games to choose from, it’s hard X-ing out anyone from our player pools. In the Pace of Play article, I gave three game flow scenarios for each game highlighting the different roster construction options available for each. Refer to that article and pair my weekly picks here to give you a bit more context.
For more on GPP strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS GPP Overview episode. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Patrick Mahomes vs CIN- $8,800
If I’m going to place my chips with a QB this week, it’s Mahomes. Overstacking with Mahomes on FanDuel means attaching the max three pieces with him and yes that includes the KC DST. Among the playoff teams, Cincinnati allowed the most 20+ yard pass plays, highest opponent pass rate, and highest pass rate when trailing. In other words, the Chiefs are going to continue to pass, pass, and pass some more.
