SB Nation Wild Card Playoffs FanDuel League

New, comment

Sure, the Rams are done. But NFL football isn't. And that means fantasy football isn't either.

Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is running a $1.2M fantasy football league on Sunday. First place wins $100,000. Join now!

Well, the postseason is upon us. And with it, the last remaining opportunities for fantasy football. So while the nation may have our collective gambling eyes on tonight's Powerball drawing ($900 million! There's no way I can't win!), SB Nation has a pretty sizable FanDuel league going too with $100k to the winner and $1.2 million in prize money total.

Here's what you're looking at in the four games:

Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans (Saturday, ESPN/ABC, 4:20pm ET)

Perhaps not the fantasy game you want to dip into, this one doesn't exactly bubble with firepower. It's not at all surprising that this has the lowest over/under of the weekend's games.

Of course, Houston WR DeAndre Hopkins leads all players in this one at $8,800. In fact, he's the second-most expensive player overall in the wild card round behind only Pittsburgh WR Antonio Brown.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals (Saturday, CBS, 8:15pm ET)

Four players in this one cost more than $8,000: Brown ($9,500), Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger ($8,400), Cincinnati A.J. Green ($8,300) and Pittsburgh RB DeAngelo Williams ($8,100)...who has already been ruled out for the gameSame goes for Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton who, despite having to watch A.J. McCarron quarterback the Bengals today, will cost you $7,900.

Know your injuries, fantasy peoples.

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings (Sunday, NBC, 1:05pm ET)

Yes, you can grab Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch for $7,800. Yes, he is also ruled out for the Seahawks game. A tougher decision? Seattle QB Russell Wilson at $8,600 or Minnesota RB Adrian Peterson at $8,400.

Seattle trounced the Vikes back in early December, 38-7. In that game, Wilson went for 274 yards and three TDs while Adrian Peterson ran the ball eight times for just 18 yards without sniffing the end zone...

P.S. Weather.

Green Bay Packers at Washington (Sunday, FOX, 4:40pm ET)

Is this the most fun game of the weekend? Perhaps Steelers-Bengals with the rivalry angle and the NFL warning both of those teams ahead of time to avoid any extracurriculars...but this one begs for fun to me.

Aaron Rodgers ($8,100) v. Kirk Cousins ($8,000)? DeSean Jackson ($7,000) v. Randall Cobb ($6,500)? The highest over/under of the weekend?

RGIII ON THE BENCH LOOKING FORLORN?!?!?!?!

It's all set up for a great weekend of playoff football. Might as well make some money off of it.
