The Eagles, Buccaneers, 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers and Chiefs all have a lot of fantastic superstars, and in the last contest with more than two teams playing on the same day we are aiming for first place in the Sunday DraftKings tournaments. uniquely. Our lineup choices feature a chalky pile that will form a basis for our lineup, but we’ll need to dig deeper into the bargain basket to differentiate our selections for DFS tournaments.
Before we detail our choices, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings contests: PPR full point, Four Point Pass TDs, three point bonus for 100 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, and 300 passing yards.
Sunday-only picks Wild Card DraftKings: Eagles vs. Buccaneers; 49ers vs. Cowboys; Steelers vs. Chiefs
$ 50,000 budget
QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 7,200)
The classic Brady-WR-TE stack is the way to go here in time critical. To make a run for first place in tournaments you need to have the right foundation, so even though Brady and his friends will be chalky, we’re taking the best playoff quarterback the game has ever seen when it matters most. . It is also close to a sure thing to get the 300 yard pass bonus.
RB Najee Harris, Steelers @ Chiefs ($ 6,600)
We’re not too high on Harris in FanDuel, but in DraftKings PPR scoring he can do that with pure volume. If he adds a bunch of yards and a touchdown or two that’s fine, but there’s also a chance he’ll have more than 10 receptions and go nuclear without it.
RB Elijah Mitchell, 49ers @ Cowboys ($ 5,700)
Mitchell is set to face one of the best front-sevens in the league, but Mitchell’s upside down touchdown on one of the NFL’s best rushing attacks makes him appealing there. He has become the undisputed workhorse at San Fransico and has shown flashes of receiving upside down in a few games this year. We hope that using Deebo Samuel will keep some people away from Mitchell.
WR Mike Evans, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 7,000)
The options become limited in Tampa Bay without Chris Godwin (ACL), Cyril Grayson (hamstrings) and Antonio Brown, so let’s save some time, eat some chalk and take Brady’s No.1 WR. He can go 100 yards and two touchdowns in any game and could start to see the most target volume he’s ever gotten since Brady came to town.
WR Mecole Hardman, Chiefs vs Steelers ($ 4,100)
Tyreek Hill (heel) was limited last week, and Hardman took advantage of his instant share, making eight catches for 103 yards. If Hill is limited at all, Hardman could have another great outing in a similar role. If Hill is on full blast, we’re still on Hardman as a boom or bust option. Remember he can get you the 100 yard bonus on just two or three receptions.
WR Cedrick Wilson, Cowboys vs. 49ers ($ 4,500)
Wilson took advantage of his opportunities when they presented themselves, as he produced four games of at least 18.7 DK points this year, and against a generally weak secondary, he could produce another big game. He’s still asleep thanks to sharing an offense with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Dalton Schultz, so we’re sending him back at low cost.
TE Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 6,400)
The Eagles present the second-best matchup for the TE on DK, so why not take the biggest tight wing in NFL playoff history as part of a Brady stack? That’s really all that went into this decision.
FLEX (RB) Boston Scott, Eagles @ Buccaneers ($ 4,500)
Our roster obviously assumes the Buccaneers will crush the Eagles, but Scott should have a lot of work to do against the Bucs. Tampa has given the RBs the second-highest number of receptions this season, and with his strong front-seven crashing into Jalen Hurts, Scott will serve as a safety valve.
DEF Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 3,400)
The Eagles offense looks powerful when it can run the ball, but put simply, we don’t expect that to happen here with Vita Vea, Devin White, Lavonte Davis and company crashing into the Eagles offensive line. When you push Jalen Hurts into a passing-only situation, it’s usually not a pretty sight.
