NFL DFS Preview:  Championship Week

Each Friday, FindBet will preview the week's DFS slate, highlighting players that are priced well on DFS sites, as well as some contrarian plays that can push your team to the top of the leader board.

Most NFL DFS games have you putting a team together with players from a certain slate of games. It could be just Sunday 1:00 PM games, or it could be every game that is slated for the week. Once the last game that has eligible players is over, the final payouts are made according to how many fantasy points each team scored. Each player is worth a certain dollar amount, and you have a cap of $60,000 to build your team with. You have to have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, or TE) and 1 DEF.

The general scoring rules include (6) points for each rushing and receiving touchdown, (4) points for each passing touchdown, (0.1) points for each rushing and receiving yard gained, (0.04) points for each passing yard, and also (0.5) points for each reception. There are other scoring opportunities for defenses. Let's take a look at players we like in the first round of the NFL playoffs this weekend.

Players to Target:

Josh Allen (QB) - $8500

Allen is coming into this game a completely different QB than he was in their Week 6 match up with Kansas City. I think he has the best match up of the 4 signal callers this weekend.

Leonard Fournette (RB) - $7200

Ronald Jones II's status for Sunday is still up in the air so that could pave the way for Fournette to get a solid workload against a Green Bay defense that is near the bottom of the league in rush defense.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB) - $6200

CEH looks to be on track to return this week (sorry about last week's recommendation!) If KC wants to replicate it's gameplan from Week 6 against the Bills, CEH will get plenty of carries.

Cole Beasley (WR) - $5700

I think this is the week we see a big game from Beasley. Indianapolis and Baltimore made it a point to shut him down the first two weeks of the playoffs. I don't think KC's defense has the ability to stop him.

Allen Lazard (WR) - $5700

Lazard finally looks back to normal after his core muscle injury earlier in the year. The Packers will have to push the ball downfield against a stingy Tampa defense which should result into production for the Packers #2 WR.

Davante Adams (WR) - $8900

Adams is basically match up proof. With the player pool the smallest it's been all year, throwing Adams in the lineup is a bit of an insurance to keep your team's scoring floor higher.

Robert Tonyan (TE) - $5700

I know we have a lot of Packers pass catchers this week, but Tonyan's scoring floor is really appealing at this price, so we are going to jump on it and hope for a big passing day.

Stefon Diggs (WR) - $8300

Diggs leads all WRs in Targets, Catches and Yards in the post season. Just like he did in the regular season. KC's defense is the worst Buffalo will have faced to this point so Diggs is a solid play.

Buffalo Bills (DEF) - $3700

Call me crazy, but a less than 100% Patrick Mahomes and a Bills defense playing its best football is a recipe for success.
