The Eagles, Buccaneers, 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers, and Chiefs all have loads of fantasy superstars, and within the final contest with greater than two groups enjoying on the identical day, we’re chasing the highest spot in Sunday-only DraftKings tournaments. Our lineup picks characteristic a chalky stack that can set a basis for our lineup, however we’ll have to achieve additional down within the cut price bin to distinguish our alternatives for DFS tournaments.
Earlier than we break down our picks, listed here are essentially the most notable scoring guidelines for DraftKings contests: Full-point PPR, four-point passing TDs, three-point bonuses for 100 dashing yards, 100 receiving yards, and 300 passing yards.
Sunday-Solely Wild Card DraftKings Picks: Eagles vs. Buccaneers; 49ers vs. Cowboys; Steelers vs. Chiefs
$50,000 price range
QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($7,200)
The traditional Brady-WR-TE stack is the best way to go in crunch time right here. To make a run on the prime spot in tournaments, it’s a must to have the proper basis, so despite the fact that Brady and mates will probably be chalky, we’re taking the best playoff quarterback the sport has ever seen when it issues most. He is as near a positive factor to get the 300-yards passing bonus.
RB Najee Harris, Steelers @ Chiefs ($6,600)
We’re not too excessive on Harris in FanDuel, however in DraftKings PPR scoring, he can get it accomplished with pure quantity. If he provides a bunch of yards and a landing or two — nice, however there’s additionally an opportunity he has 10-plus receptions and goes nuclear with out it.
RB Elijah Mitchell, 49ers @ Cowboys ($5,700)
Mitchell is about to face one of the higher front-sevens within the league, however Mitchell’s landing upside on among the finest dashing assaults within the NFL makes him engaging on this spot. He is develop into the unquestioned workhorse in San Fransico and has proven flashes of receiving upside in a number of video games this yr. We hope Deebo Samuel’s utilization will preserve some folks off of Mitchell.
WR Mike Evans, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($7,000)
The choices are getting restricted in Tampa Bay with out Chris Godwin (ACL), Cyril Grayson (hamstring), and Antonio Brown, so let’s simply save a while, eat some chalk, and take Brady’s No. 1 WR. He can go for 100 yards and two touchdowns in any matchup and will start to see essentially the most goal quantity he is ever gotten since Brady got here to city.
WR Mecole Hardman, Chiefs vs. Steelers ($4,100)
Tyreek Hill (heel) was restricted final week, and Hardman took benefit of his snap share, placing up eight catches for 103 yards. If Hill is proscribed in any respect, Hardman might have one other good outing in an analogous position. If Hill is full-go, we’re nonetheless on Hardman as a boom-or-bust possibility. Bear in mind, he can get you the 100-yard bonus on simply two or three receptions.
WR Cedrick Wilson, Cowboys vs. 49ers ($4,500)
Wilson has taken benefit of his alternatives after they come, as he is produced 4 video games of a minimum of 18.7 DK factors this yr, and towards a usually weak secondary, he might produce yet one more massive recreation. He is nonetheless a sleeper due to sharing an offense with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Dalton Schultz, so we’re firing him up at low value.
TE Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($6,400)
The Eagles current the second-best matchup for TEs on DK, so why not take the best tight finish in NFL historical past within the playoffs as a part of a Brady stack? That is actually all that went into this determination.
FLEX (RB) Boston Scott, Eagles @ Buccaneers ($4,500)
Our lineup clearly assumes the Buccaneers will crush the Eagles, however Scott ought to have loads of receiving work towards the Bucs. Tampa has allowed the second-most receptions to RBs this season, and with its robust front-seven crashing down on Jalen Hurts, Scott will function his security valve.
DEF Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($3,400)
The Eagles’ offense seems potent when it will possibly run the ball, however merely put, we do not count on that to occur right here with Vita Vea, Devin White, Lavonte Davis, and firm crashing down on the Eagles’ offensive line. If you push Jalen Hurts right into a pass-only scenario, it is often not a fairly sight.
