What a time of the year for DFS players! DraftKings has 5 contests live in their lobby with a $1+ million prize pool and 10 contests with a prize pool of at least $500,000!
This is my personal DraftKings lineup For the NFL Divisional Round. Using the allowed budget of $50,000, this is the winning DraftKings lineup I have constructed for the NFL Divisional playoff round that will have you cashing in over the weekend.
I have tried to limit my choices to no more than 2 players per team, as variety is important so you don’t put all your eggs in one basket. This is how my nine-player lineup is constructed. It is worth noting that DraftKings also has a Saturday-only slate and Sunday-only slate for this weekend.
New players can register with our current DraftKings bonus offer to get a free entry to any one of these contests. We also have an exclusive PrizePicks offer for the Divisional Round that includes $100 free and a free entry on Cooper Kupp to go over 1 receiving yard this weekend!
Quarterback- Matthew Stafford $6,200
Not only does Stafford provide you with a lot of points he also gives you the perfect opportunity for a stack play with all-pro wide receiver Cooper Kupp. Stafford has been consistent all season long and that is not something I expect to change as he looks to build onto his first playoff win with another one in this game. Stafford is looking to qualify for his first-ever Conference Championship game in this one so I expect him to put up big numbers in the process, win or lose.
Running Back- Elijah Mitchell $5,800
Elijah Mitchell found the endzone last week in the 49ers upset victory over the Dallas Cowboys. I expect him to get a load of carries again this week as San Francisco will look to keep Green Bay’s explosive offense off the field. Mitchell is likely to find the end zone once more in this weekend’s game as well.
Running Back- Devin Singletary $5,900
In the Bills blowout victory over New England, Singletary ran for 81 yards and 2 Touchdowns which makes him a perfect option at just under $6,000 this week. I expect him to get the same amount of carries as Buffalo looks to beat the Kansas City Chiefs once again this season.
Wide Receiver- Tyler Boyd $4,800
Boyd is a serviceable and cheap option for daily fantasy players this weekend. In last week’s win over Vegas, the Bengals wideout caught a touchdown and finished with 4 catches and 26 yards. He is also a much cheaper option than Jamarr Chase, who will be closely guarded the entire game. This is why I expect Boyd to have an even bigger game than he did last weekend.
Wide Receiver- Cooper Kupp $8,600
While Kupp is by far the most expensive pass-catching option this week, he is still worth the $8,600 price tag he comes with. As he will be a big part of the game plan when the Rams head to Tampa Bay looking for another win over the Bucs this season. Expect Kupp to be the leading receiver on both teams in this one, which makes him a perfect choice for DFS users.
Wide Receiver-Mecole Hardman $3,900
Hardman is an under-the-radar grab and has been waiting for his breakout game all season long. There is no better time for it than now. He also comes with a very affordable price tag of $3,900 and is likely to be very involved in the Kansas City Chiefs game plan this weekend against the Bills.
Tight End- Rob Gronkowski $5,800
Gronk always tends to show up when it matters the most for Tom Brady. This is why after his serviceable 5 catches for 31 yards and a touchdown stat line in last week’s win over Philadelphia, I expect more of the same. Throughout his career, he has always been a playoff performer, and that will likely continue in this year’s postseason.
Flex Position- D’onta Foreman $5,400
Despite rumors that Derrick Henry may return to the lineup this week, Foreman should not be overlooked. He will still likely get some carries in order to give King Henry some breathers and he may very well prove his worth when given the chance.
Defense/Special Teams- Packers $3,200
Even though the San Francisco 49ers upset one of the better teams in the National Football League last weekend, they still only managed to score 23 points in the process. This is why I expect this game to be a low-scoring affair. So even if San Francisco manages to find the endzone, I look for the Green Bay Packers defense to still be a unit that can earn you a decent amount of points in your DFS contests this weekend.
