Some call the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs the most exciting weekend in football. The four games this weekend prove that to be true. Did you make your way to the top of the leaderboards last week in DFS? Did you at least double your money? I hope you did, and I implore you to explore these options below to win the Saturday slate of Divisional Round DFS fantasy football.
Aaron Rodgers vs. LAR ($8,400 FD) – Rodgers is the second-most expensive quarterback in the Saturday slate of games behind Josh Allen ($8,800). If you handcuff Rodgers with his star receiver Davante Adams, which you definitely should, then you’re due for a gigantic explosion of fantasy points here!
It was a difficult choice for me not to play Allen but I had to save some salary space somewhere. Rodgers is coming off the lone one-week in the NFC after having one of his best seasons ever. Mix that in with the Rams’ Aaron Donald not practicing all week and then traveling to cold Green Bay; this should spell out a big performance for the Packers’ offense overall.
Devin Singletary vs. BAL ($5,700 FD) – I do not share the same view as my Fantasy Hour On Tap partner PremierAmp in regards to Devin Singletary. With Zack Moss out for this game against the Ravens, Singletary will be the Bills’ premier running back.
He will be used in the short-passing attack against a pretty good Baltimore defense. For $5,700, Singletary will provide great value as he should amass double-digit fantasy points.
Gus Edwards at BUF ($5,300 FD) – Within the same game, the Bills’ run defense has been less than stellar this season.
The Ravens absolutely love to run the ball and that won’t change here. Edwards provides tremendous value at only $5,300.
Marquise Brown at BUF ($6,500 FD) – Hollywood Brown hasn’t logged fewer than ten fantasy points since the month of November. He and Lamar Jackson are clearly on the same page now and they will put up big numbers together against the Bills.
For only $6,500, you’re basically stealing points here. Play him and don’t even think twice about it.
Tight End VALUE
Dawson Knox vs. BAL ($5,000 FD) – I’m trying not to reiterate exactly what I wrote last week, but a great deal of it remains true. The tight end position is not where you should spend a ton of salary. At only $5,000, Knox gives you great value.
Knox scored an early touchdown for the Bills last week against the Colts and there is no reason to think he’ll do any worse than seven fantasy points. You can count on him for cheap points and spend heavy amounts of money elsewhere to maximize other positional values.
BAL at BUF ($3,600 FD) – At this stage of the postseason schedule, I would opt-in for starting the cheapest defense there is. Save the rest of your salary for positions that can score high amounts of fantasy points and hope for a few sacks from the defense.
