Fantasy Football Divisional Round: Weekly Advice

Take a look at our expert's FanDuel picks for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.

We are back for another round of FanDuel plays for the divisional round.  Last week, we hit on some of our cheaper picks, so I hoped you took advantage.  Here are the best options for this week. Pick and choose wisely;

  • Joe Flacco, $7,800 - He is the best cheap option, and I think the Pats are a tad better against the run.
  • Russell Wilson, $8,600 - The Panthers have been good against the pass, but look at who that was against. Plus, his game is not all passing.
  • Tom Brady, $9,100 - He is my top option for expensive QBs this week. The Ravens are just so awful against the pass with all their secondary injuries.
  • LeGarrette Blount, $5,700 - He will be the RB1 this week. There is a reason he was brought back.
  • Dan Herron, $6,100 - He may end up on a ton of lineups and does have fumbling issues, but he is too much of a bargain to pass up.
  • Eddie Lacy, $8,400 - Rodgers is a tad injured, and the Cowboys struggled against lesser RBs last week. I see a huge workload.
  • DeMarco Murray, $8,900 - The Packers have a bad run defense, and even if they fall behind, Murray never gets taken out.
  • Wes Welker, $5,200 - Manning cannot throw deep, so I can see a nice 6-62 line for Welker this week.
  • Doug Baldwin $5,900 - It's a great price for a WR1, and he usually makes a big play or 2 every game.
  • Julian Edelman, $7,300 - He should be the WR1 in a week where I see a ton of passes.
  • Dez Bryant, $9,000 - I like him the best of all the high priced WRs this week in what is expected to be a shootout.
  • Julius Thomas, $5,500 - He is not right, but with a week off, just his TD potential makes this too much of a bargain.
  • Rob Gronkowski, $7,900 - If you go a tad cheaper at WR, this is more than worth the price this week.
  • Connor Barth, $4,700 - He is my kicker for the week based on the struggles of the Denver offense and his usage rate the previous games.
  • Seahawks, $5,200 - At home against a very shaky QB?  I see no other real option this week.
Thanks for reading!
