Welcome to our NFL FanDuel DFS picks for Championship Sunday. It’s a two-game slate this weekend so cash games will be tight and tournaments could have a lot of ties. We’re all going to play no matter what so none of that actually matters.
Please keep in mind for cash games (Double ups, 50/50s, and Head-to-Heads) I’m looking to beat 40%-50% of the field. That means I’m targeting players with a solid floor and extreme value. I want running backs with a lot of rushes+receptions and pass catchers that will get a lot of targets. I need guys to have the ball in their hands a lot.
When it comes to GPPs (tournaments), I like stacking a quarterback with a pass-catching teammate or two and sometimes adding an opposing player as well. Since we’re looking at two two-game slates and one four-game slate there’s almost no way I won’t have an opposing player or two stacked along with my quarterback in the lineup.
Josh Allen (8.5k)
Allen is the highest value on the slate in the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub. The Chiefs are ranked 28th in the NFL against the quarterback position, and the Buffalo Bills don’t/can’t really run the ball. Josh is a dual threat QB so that makes him a stronger play. You can argue that all of the quarterbacks on the slate have rushing td potential, but I like Josh’s chances the best.
Davante Adams (8.9k)
Adams has been a beast all season, and turned into the kind of must play that we usually reserve for running backs. Our NFL Study Hub projects Davante for 10 targets. He’s averaged 20+ fantasy points in his last four games. The Bucs defense is ranked 24th against the wide receiver position. I’m not sure what more I could add that would make it any clearer that I like Adams a lot this weekend.
Tyreke Hill (8.4k)
Both games on the slate feature implied totals over 50 points. The Buffalo Bills vs. the Kansas City Chiefs match has the higher total at 54.5 points so why not grab an explosive player from that game? Since it’s a two-game slate we’re going to jam in the high-upside players while looking for a few overlooked plays to boost us to first place.
Aaron Jones (8k)
Jones is the highest projected and highest rated running back in our NFL Study Hub. The only downside to this play is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are strong against the run. I’ll let the other contestants get scared off by that. I’m focusing on Jones’ work in the running and passing game. He leads all players on the slate in touches over the last four weeks, and he’s a threat to break a long touchdown when he has the ball.
Quarterback: Josh Allen
Wide Receiver: Stephon Diggs
Opposing Tight End: Travis Kelce
If you were with me for the various NFL Milly Maker Reports throughout the season then you know that about 75% of first place winning quarterbacks come from games within the top five for implied total. It’s only a two-game slate so both teams obviously fit the criteria, but I’m targeting the game with the higher total.
The Allen to Diggs combo has been lethal almost the entire season. If we’re going to get the shootout that Vegas is predicting then these two guys will be heavily involved. Our NFL Study Hub projects Diggs for 12 targets. If Diggs catches a touchdown pass or two and Josh Allen adds a rushing touchdown we should be looking good.
Travis Kelce was the best tight end in the NFL this season. The options for Sunday are pay up for Kelce or hope that Robert Tonyan, Cameron Brate, or Dawson Knox are able to offset his production. I’ll be rolling with the safer play in Kelce.
Before I get out of here I want to say it’s been a lot of fun writing these NFL articles. Since the season is coming to a close I’ll be focusing on the NBA and anything else Team Rise or Fall needs me to do.
Sticking to the topic of the NBA though, hopefully you’re all members and have been taking advantage of the seven fire emoji projections in our NBA Study Hub. Team Rise or Fall members are posting winning screenshots nightly from all entry fee levels.
That’s all from me for now. Good luck to everyone this weekend. Let’s get this money!
