NFL DFS – Playoffs – Conference Championship

Here are a few plays I’ll be making this week for NFL DFS.

Quarterbacks

Tom Brady – $7,400
I like Patriots players for the most part this week, and I’m not convinced on Peyton or Palmer. Brady rarely dissapoints, and always has the potential to rack up TDs.

Running Backs

D. Johnson – $6,500
Everyone will have him, but you’ll need to have to, at least in a decent amount of lineups. By far the best RB option available.

S. Jackson – $3,000
Patriots are known to have these journeymen RBs go off, and Steven Jackson playing his fourth game for NE may be primed to be that journeyman this week. Looks like he’s getting the carries for them, and he will likely be a popular play as well but a good one.

Wide Receivers

J. Edelman – $7,500
Tough to gauge the WR position this week, but I like Edelman due to his consistent high floor value, coupled with the potential of putting up a monster.

D. Funchess – $3,200
Cheap gamble at WR, but will have the weakest defender on him. A good spot if you’re looking to differentiate and he did put up 27 fantasy points 2 weeks ago.

J. Nelson – $2,000
A major gamble, but with Brown’s injury status and the likelihood of Panthers trying to take Fitzgerald away, Nelson may be asked to step up. He produced earlier in the season in a similar situation, even going for close to 30 fantasy points in one of them.

Tight Ends

G. Olson – $7,100
It’s tough to choose between Gronk and Olsen but I’m going to lean toward Olsen as he’s cheaper, playing a weaker D, he’ll likely be slightly less owned, and the Pats have more weapons to spread it out to.

Defenses

Carolina – $3,500
I think Palmer and Peyton are the two likely QBs to make the mistakes out of the four, so I lean toward Pats and Carolina’s defense. I give Carolina the edge because of Palmer’s history.
