NFL DFS FanDuel Picks for WildCard Weekend (Fantasy Football)
On a 6-game slate like this for the playoffs, minimizing the player pool can be difficult. You end up galaxy-braining yourself into believing any scenario could play out.
Betz and I preview the entire slate and walk through each game from a stacking perspective on Friday’s DFS Podcast.
- Patrick Mahomes ($8700)– As a 12.5-point home favorite, it’s hard not taking the safety of Mahomes and the KC Chiefs. His yardage totals aren’t what they used to be but Pittsburgh is allowing the 2nd highest EPA per pass attempt among all playoff teams. A near 30-point team implied total is solid.
- Dak Prescott ($8000)– I have Dak right now in my cash lineup dropping down from Mahomes to save $700 but not giving up too much projection. Dak is averaging 37+ pass attempts on the season and the 2nd most EPA per pass attempt among teams on this slate. The 49ers also willingly give up big plays, the 4th most 20+ yard passing plays, and teams are targeting them deep on more than 12 percent of their attempts. His floor/ceiling combination is what I’m looking for in cash with a healthy 27+ point team implied total.
