Welcome to the NFL playoffs! After a season full of craziness, ups and downs and more controversy over playoff format, we finally arrive at the finish line. This weekend proves to be exciting if not a little bit odd. Many of the teams featured have starting QBs with little to no playoff experience (A.J. McCarron, Alex Smith, Brian Hoyer, Teddy Bridgewater and Kirk Cousins) and the other three QBs have won a Super Bowl (Ben Roethlisberger, Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers), so where does that leave us? We’re left wondering if the upstarts can continue playing impressive football, which big name QB will put up a dud, and who can be relied upon for this week’s DFS.

DraftKings is continuing on their Millionaire Maker tournament with an entry fee of $20, which is what I will be focusing on. Remember, with a tournament like this one, the concept is to not have the same lineup as everyone, and also just to place. The odds of winning are minimal, but just placing can see you win back some good money.

Quarterbacks

Starts:

A.J. McCarron ($5200): McCarron will be a favorite pick up amongst DFS players this week. With plenty of targets and a great matchup, I feel confident that the Bengals backup can put up solid numbers at the best price possible.

Russell Wilson ($7000): No doubt the play of the week. Coming off a ridiculous end of season run, and still without Beast Mode, Wilson will be asked to carry the load yet again. That shouldn’t be a problem for a quarterback who really thrives in the postseason.

Bust:

Ben Roethlisberger ($7200): Don’t get me wrong, I think Big Ben will put up decent numbers. However, with such a small slate of games, the highest priced QB shouldn’t just be putting up decent numbers. The Bengals defense will be amped up to finally break through in the playoffs and will try to put the team on their backs. This is a very good defense that will cause Ben some major issues.

Sleeper:

Aaron Rodgers ($6400): How can the third most expensive QB be a sleeper, you ask? Well, Rodgers is coming off one of his worst seasons as a pro, and people seem to have forgotten just how good the Cal alum really is. With a great matchup this week, I say jump aboard the Rodgers train.

Running Backs

This field of RBs is just sad looking. Outside of Adrian Peterson, there isn’t a big name back to be seen, and AP has the Seahawks. This is certainly a punt position for me.

Starts:

Giovani Bernard ($4000): Bernard is the pass catching back for the Bengals, and that bodes well coming in against the Steelers. Despite the fact that the Steelers were very good defending RBs and TEs this season, I feel that Bernard should thrive. When a backup QB is in, they tend to either go big or check down, meaning there should be plenty of opportunities for Bernard to sneak out the backfield and rack up catches.

Christine Michael ($4400): Michael should carry the load against the Vikings with Marshawn Lynch still out. I don’t really expect this game to be close, leaving Michael with plenty of mop up duty and good yards overall.

Bust:

Adrian Peterson ($7300): The Seahawks have allowed the least amount of fantasy points to opposing RBs this season. The last matchup against Seattle saw All Day score 6.4 points. None of these are good signs, and AP just isn’t worth the money this week.

Sleeper:

None. My two starts should be considered sleepers.

Wide Receivers

Starts:

A.J. Green ($7500): Green is my top play at any position this week.  I have a feeling that the A.J. to A.J. connection will be strong and with Pittsburgh subpar secondary that can spell a big day for Cincy’s #1 receiver.

Antonio Brown ($9600): Just because I expect Big Ben to struggle a bit does not mean that Antonio Brown isn’t a lock to be on every DFS team.  Brown is too good to pass up on, and WR that is targeted as often as he is deserves a spot on any roster.

Doug Baldwin ($6700): If it looks like I am high on the top WRs it’s because I am.  Baldwin really emerged at the end of the season, and I really don’t see that slowing down.

Busts:

Jeremy Maclin ($6400): People have been trying to convince me all week that Maclin is a good play, heck, I’ve tried to convince myself, and I just can’t do it.  Houston ranks 7th in the NFL in points allowed to WRs, I don’t trust Alex Smith and I can see this game being a low scoring defensive battle.

Sleeper:

Marvin Jones ($3700): Can you tell I am high on the Bengals receivers?  I like Jones as a deep play threat to get a couple of chances over the top for big gains.  Jones is a boom or bust type of player and as such I am leaving him as a sleeper.

Tight Ends

Starts:

Travis Kelce ($4500): But I just said the KC game would be a low scoring affair!! Yes, I realize the hypocrisy however if there is a TD to be caught on the Chiefs side of the ball it is this man who is going to do it.  We all know the stat from last year about KC wideouts not catching a TD, that shows you how much Alex Smith relies on his TEs, and that shouldn’t change this weekend.

Richard Rodgers ($4000): I like Rodgers for a similar reason as Kelce.  I like the fact that he is a big Red Zone presence, and the matchup is definitely there this week.  Rodgers will certainly get the targets, so the big man is a great value.

Busts:

Let me call this a fade, as it is not really a bust.

Jordan Reed ($6300): Who is going to be owned more this week. Reed or Antonio Brown??  I would say Reed, everyone and their brother is starting the guy, and as such you should look elsewhere for your Tight End production.

Sleeper:

Kyle Rudolph ($3500): Terrible matchup, but one of Teddy Bridgewater’s ($5100) favorite targets.  Look for Rudolph to at least get you points in the reception category and be worth the small investment opening up salary room for other players.

Defenses

Start:

Chiefs ($4000): The Chiefs have had an incredible run to finish the season, and it is mainly down to their defense being nothing short of incredible.  They get to tee off against Brian Hoyer ($5400) and the subpar Texans offense and should have a field day.

Sit:

Steelers ($3700): At this point, I think you get the message.  I don’t trust, nor do I like the Steeler’s defense.

Sleeper:

Packers ($2800): Granted Kirk Cousins ($5900) has been great at home all season, but I just get the feeling that this Packers team has been coasting through the regular season and has that extra gear that nobody saw coming.  I also don’t know how well Cousins will hold up in his first ever playoff start so the cheapest DST out there is worth a shot.

Hey folks, I am still celebrating the Knicks almost winning last night against the Spurs and ruing the fact that Anthony Davis started in many of my DFS leagues. With that being said, let us turn our attention to today's games.

Games to target

Golden State vs. Sacramento (o/u 223.5)

Washington vs. Orlando (o/u 197.5)

Can’t Miss

John Wall ($8800): The Wizards remain a banged up team, and they remain a team centered around Wall. The matchup against Orlando is a tricky one, meaning there will be more on Wall’s plate. I doubt the former Kentucky star disappoints tonight.

Jimmy Butler ($7900): Jimmy Buckets just plays too many minutes and has too high a usage rate to leave out of your lineup. In what should be a hard fought contest with the Hawks, Butler will be relied upon heavily as a shutdown defender and go to scorer.

Andre Drummond ($9400): Drummond is too reliable to leave out of your lineup. I love players that can get fantasy points without having to score in bunches, and Drummond can do that. Facing the Nets, he should also be relied upon as the go to scorer, and his production level will be high.

High Risk

Marco Belinelli ($2500): Belinelli has been on a tear of late, and that could continue tonight. Despite the tough matchup, the Kings are going to need to score, so look for them to hoist up plenty of shots. The Italian is worth a nod, especially at that price.

Aaron Gordon ($2200): I have struck out on Gordon a couple times in the past, but in the Magic’s last six games, the forward has played over 20 minutes five times. With regular court time like that and a matchup against the banged up Wizards, Gordon is certainly worth a shot.

Fillers

Marcus Morris ($5000): All I can ever think of when I see Morris’ name is that he is the perfect filler. Nothing incredible but an all-around solid player that can fill a stat sheet. With a good matchup tonight, look for Morris to flirt with 30 fantasy points, if not more.

Victor Oladipo ($6100): With Elfrid Payton out, Oladipo has assumed more of a prominent role in the Magic offense. That will continue against Washington today, and with extended minutes come more points. I fully expect Oladipo to break 30 if not 35 minutes and average a little over a fantasy point per minute.

That’s all for today, folks. Happy balling.

161x314_fantasyscore_basketball

Welcome back to my NBA DFS column. Sorry that I have missed a couple of good gameday slates, but I am now back and with basketball in full swing, let's look at the small slate of games for tonight. For me, the game to focus on is Kings vs. Lakers.

Can’t Miss

DeMarcus Cousins ($9500): This is a no-brainer. Boogey has been out of this world good as of late, and the Lakers won’t be able to keep up with the big man.

Pau Gasol ($8100): Pau has been the image of solid big fantasy numbers this season. The Celtics are on a back-to-back and their big men don’t strike me as being able to keep up with the Spaniard.

Rajon Rondo ($7900): If Rondo plays, the guard is a lock for 30-plus fantasy points with a good shot at 50. The Lakers allow a ton of points to opposing PGs and as long as he is healthy, Rajon should exploit that.

High Risk

Jeff Withey ($3900): Here is a great value pick if ever I’ve seen one. Withey has been excellent ever since the injury to Derrick Favors and should continue to produce big numbers in the absence of the other Utah big man. The fact that the former Jayhawk is available at center, leaving extra money for other more productive positions, is just an added bonus.

Trey Burke ($3100): Doubling up on Jazz players here, Burke has been tasked with carrying a big offensive load due to a ton of injuries. The Rockets aren’t a very good defensive team and Burke has yet to find any sort of rhythm. However, my bet is that Trey drops trays and wins you money tonight.

Fillers

Darren Collison ($4500): This is a cover pick for Rondo, but also I feel as if Collison will be a good play regardless. Without Rondo, he's a must-start.

Taj Gibson ($4300): Gibson has been excellent as of late, and the bigs on the Celtics won't be able to hang with him.

That’s all for today. Happy Balling.

161x314_fantasyscore_basketball

Happy New Year everyone! Let us ring in 2016 with some great NBA basketball replete with points aplenty and DFS wins for all.

Games to target

New Orleans Pelicans vs Dallas Mavericks (o/u 206.5)

Philadelphia 76ers vs Los Angeles Clippers (o/u 207.5)

Detroit Pistons vs Indiana Pacers (o/u 202.5)

Can’t Miss

Anthony Davis ($9700): The Brow is such a great player in the NBA and huge for DFS. Against the Mavs, nothing should change and Davis should be in every lineup tonight.

Paul George ($8400): This season has been all the more better due to the return to prowess of George. Tonight, the All-Star season should continue for George and in a game where points should be aplenty.

Klay Thompson ($7500): Coming off a poor performance in Golden State’s second loss of the season, Thompson will come out firing, looking to carry the scoring load for the Warriors.

High Risk

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope ($5100): Pope has been hit or miss all season as the guard is a fairly one-dimensional player. In a game sure to produce points, the Pistons’ guard will get every opportunity to get his.

Tristan Thompson ($3500): The Cavs have given Thompson every opportunity to succeed, and going up against the Magic tonight, the forward will get a chance to wipe the glass clean.

Fillers

Enes Kanter ($4800): Kanter has had a very good festive period of the year, and against Charlotte tonight, that should continue. With injuries throughout their frontcourt, the Hornets are weak there and that leaves the door open for Kanter to produce.

Andre Iguodala ($3100): The Finals MVP will be looking to help the Warriors come back from their second loss of the season. With a nice matchup against the Nuggets, Iggy will get every chance to do just that.

FantasyScore DFS Picks for NFL Week 17 (Daniel) PDF Print E-mail

score

Ok folks, this is the last week in the NFL regular season and there are still playoff implications in plenty of games. This week could definitely provide points, and very possibly some historical marks for players and teams alike. With all that being said, I will break down some stacks or bundles of players that I really like as well as some can’t miss and deeper options going into Week 17.

I will start by delving into the games with playoff implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns

Last week, I put a lot into the Steelers and was burned pretty badly. Well, I am relying on them yet again this week in a must-win situation. I personally like stacking Ben Roethlisberger ($8500) with Antonio Brown ($8800) and DeAngelo Williams ($7700) as the trio that heads my offense and should produce in bunches.

New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills

This is an intriguing matchup for all watching with all the storylines, but the biggest story is the Jets can make the playoffs with a win. The Bills secondary is decimated with injuries and that should make for smooth sailing for Ryan Fitzpatrick ($7500) and Brandon Marshall ($8300), who are both looking to set Jets single-season records. Eric Decker ($7000) is sure to get in the mix as well and is worth a starting place.

New England Patriots vs Miami Dolphins

This is an interesting matchup as the Patriots would like to win in order to ensure home field for the playoffs and most likely add some insult to the injury that has been Miami’s season. Tom Brady ($8400) should thrive and that bodes well for Rob Gronkowski ($7900) as the two should link up early and often.

Can’t Miss

Julio Jones ($8700): Jones is looking to put the finishing touches on a monster season and the Saints secondary will be happy to oblige.

Drew Brees ($8100): This is a game that is sure to provide plenty of thrills and Brees will be looking to end a lost season on a high note.

High Risk

Jay Cutler ($5900): Cutler has very quietly had one of the better seasons in his career. One final game against the Lions should prove fruitful for the oft maligned QB.

Alfred Blue ($4800): The Texans need to win to fully secure a playoff spot and the Jaguars defense is still rather weak. Blue should have a nice day at a great price.

That’s all folks. Best of luck this week and enjoy the final week of what has been a very exciting NFL season.
