DFS – Fantasy Football – NFL DraftKings Lineup – NFL Playoffs Divisional Games – 1/13/19
It’s the NFL Playoffs and we have another exciting 2-game slate that starts at 1:05pm this afternoon!
We went with a popular stack in the IND/KC game that didn’t pay off for us yesterday and I’m actually with more of risker lineup today as I’m going to be stacking the NE Patriots.
I think the world and majority of DFS owners will be on Drew Brews and/or Nick Foles as both the Saints and Eagles pass defenses have struggled this season which I think opens up a great opportunity to take Tom Brady who I imagine that his ownership levels will be pretty low.
To pair with Brady, I’m going to put him with two of his favorite receivers in Julien Edelman & James White. Edelman will be seeing at least 10 targets today and has caught TD passes in 4 of his last 6 games. White is a bit risky at his price as we never know the game plan that Belichick has with his RB’s, however, White is one of the most dangerous receivers out of the backfield in the NFL and now that we’re in the playoffs, I wouldn’t be surprised to see White have a major role today.
Although I’m stacking the Pats, I’m still having plenty of exposure to the NO/PHI games.
For New Orleans, as we don’t have Brees, I’ve paid up for Alvin Kamara in hopes he can break off some big runs for TD’s. We also have Ted Ginn Jr. in the lineup as he just has too much value at a price of $4,500 to pass up on.
As I think the Eagles will be playing from behind, I went with Darren Sproles at my other RB spot as he is their biggest threat in the passing game out of the backfield. We also have Golden Tate who saw 8 targets last week agianst Chicago & Zach Ertz who should be in for a big day.
Unlike our FanDuel lineup, we had some extra to salary to fit in Melvin Gordon III who is very reasonably priced and going agianst a Patriots defense that has struggled agianst the run this season.
For our defense, as we only have Gordon III for SD, I’m going with New England Patriots. The Chargers has played well on the road this season, however, the Patriots in the playoffs at Foxboro is always a challenge and as New England has had Rivers number throughout his career, I’m hoping they can repeat that success today.
