Divisional Round DraftKings Picks

WRs

Despite being the most expensive WR on the slate, Davante Adams ($7,800) checks in as the top value. He’s been a volume hog since returning from that toe injury, averaging 11.4 targets, 7.3 catches, 77 yards and .6 TDs across 8 games. Adams closed the season with 3 straight games of 22+ DK points. He’s home on Sunday for a middling Seahawks pass defense that ranks 14th in DK points allowed to WRs.

Deebo Samuel ($5,200) is your #2 value at WR. The rookie has posted 13+ DK points in 7 of his last 8 games, with 3 outings of 22+ points over that span. He’s averaged 6.1 targets — plus 1.1 carries — in those 8 games. Credit the Vikings for doing a good job on Michael Thomas last week, but this remains a susceptible secondary. They’re dealing with the aforementioned injuries to Mike Hughes and Mackensie Alexander. And supposed #1 CB Xavier Rhodes allowed more fantasy points per route covered than any starting CB still alive in the playoffs. That also makes Emmanuel Sanders ($5,400) a viable play.

No WR on this slate can match Tyreek Hill’s ($7,600) ceiling. Over the past 2 seasons, he has 9 games of 25+ DK points. The Texans rank 21st in DK points allowed to WRs — and only 6 teams allowed more completions of 40+ yards during the regular season.

The Seahawks WR corps turned out exactly like we expected last week, with D.K. Metcalf going off against an Eagles defense that struggled all year vs. outside WRs. This Sunday’s matchup vs. the Packers doesn’t have a clear edge for Metcalf or Tyler Lockett ($6,600). Green Bay ranks 16th and 8th in fantasy points allowed to the outside WRs spots and 10th vs. slots. So with Metcalf now more expensive than Lockett — and likely to be higher owned — go with Lockett in tournaments.
