FF5: 5 Wild Card Weekend DFS Picks
If you happen to can’t get sufficient of Fantasy Soccer (and I imply who can?), then you definately’re seemingly enjoying in at the least some type of postseason Fantasy contest. Whether or not you’re enjoying DFS or an elimination/survivor format, these are 5 gamers properly price focusing on based mostly on their potential this Wild Card weekend.
Anticipate Gurley To Go Wild This Weekend
It’s simple to start out with the potential MVP of the Fantasy Soccer season, however Todd Gurley ought to proceed to be cash within the financial institution for his house owners when the Rams tackle the Falcons within the late recreation on Saturday.
In Weeks 14-16, Gurley averaged greater than 120 yards on the bottom and 75 yards receiving whereas racking up eight complete touchdowns, main his fair proportion of Fantasy house owners to a championship. We should always anticipate extra of the identical towards a Falcons protection that was killed by way of the air by operating backs this season, giving up 110 receptions for greater than 800 yards. a operating again who had 64 catches for 788 yards and 6 touchdowns, that’s music to my ears.
Priced at $9,700 and $10Okay, in DraftKings and FanDuel, respectively, Gurley needs to be a cornerstone of any lineup and properly price each cent throughout Wild Card Weekend. Construct round Gurley as he, and the Rams, appear to have discovered one thing particular this season.
Hunt Doubtless To Stay Scorching
Additionally, from the Saturday set, Kareem Hunt is one other again that helped Fantasy house owners to a title in 2017. Throughout Weeks 14-16, the Chiefs leaned closely on Hunt, a possible preview for his utilization within the playoffs. His lowest output throughout these video games was 91 dashing yards, 4 catches for 15 yards and a landing, which is probably going his ground in Saturday’s matchup towards the Titans.
I plan to stack Hunt, and his $eight,200 FanDuel and $eight,100 DraftKings price ticket, with Gurley to make a dynamic operating again pairing this weekend. Averaging practically 83 yards per recreation on his approach to the NFL dashing title, Hunt ought to key the Chiefs offense enjoying at house as nine-point favorites.
Anticipate at the least 90 yards and a landing, making Hunt a little bit of a price play at his value this weekend.
Dial Up Delanie as TE1
In the identical recreation, my sleeper tight finish of the weekend performs — Delanie Walker. Whereas most house owners will look to larger names like Zach Ertz, Greg Olsen or Travis Kelce, I’m pegging Walker as the highest tight finish this weekend.
His seven targets and practically 4 grabs per recreation make his $four,700 DraftKings and $5,800 FanDuel value on a budget aspect in comparison with his upside. Walker stays a key cog to the Titans’ offense, serving as a security blanket for Marcus Mariota. And in Mariota’s playoff debut, search for the QB to seek out his favourite goal early and infrequently for eventually 65 yards and a landing on Saturday.
Purchase In On Bortles’ Worth
While you have a look at the quarterbacks beneath middle this weekend, Blake Bortles is probably going far down in your rankings record. However with solely eight choices, Bortles is huge time worth play coming in at $6,000 on DraftKings and $7,600 on FanDuel.
Simply have a look at what the UCF product did in Weeks 12-16! Consider it or not, however Bortles was a Prime-5 QB, placing up 22-plus factors in six-point QB TD leagues. He topped 300 yards in three of these 5 contests and had at the least two touchdowns all 5 video games.
It’s make or break for Blake and I believe he comes by way of Sunday, particularly at a reduced value in comparison with different QBs. By banking on Bortles (let’s say 270 yds. and two TDs), you possibly can spend these valuable few wage cap on premium gamers at talent positions like WR (see under).
Thomas Will Be Prime Wideout
Michael Thomas is a participant I gained’t go with out this weekend. Going through a Carolina protection that he’s already scorched twice — and scored on twice, to associate with 12 catches, 17 targets and 157 yards — Thomas continues to be the go-to goal for Drew Brees.
Averaging virtually 80 yards a recreation for the second straight season, Thomas is as near a certain factor as we get in Fantasy circles. Particularly towards the Panthers, who gave up the fourth-most Fantasy factors to large receivers this season.
With a stud like Thomas, his price ticket of $7,800 in DraftKings and $eight,300 in FanDuel ought to offer you at the least some extent per $1K, and certain extra. This being their third matchup, it looks like a no brainer to anticipate extra of the identical from Thomas on Sunday — 5 catches for 70 yds. and a TD — when the 2 face off within the remaining recreation Wild Card weekend.
