Week 18 DraftKings Tournament Picks


Joe Burrow ($7,300) + Ja’Marr Chase ($8,400) or Tee Higgins ($7,600) + Hayden Hurst ($3,100)

Burrow has scored 28.5+ DK points in 5 games this season, with 3 of those coming in his last 6 outings. He struggled in his Week 5 meeting with the Ravens but roasted them for 416-3-1 and 525-4-0 passing lines last year.

Baltimore rolls into this one sitting 7th in Football Outsiders’ run defense rankings over the last 5 weeks but 27th against the pass. So expect a pass-heavy attack from Cincinnati.

Stack Burrow with 1 of his stud WRs plus Hurst – a strong standalone value at TE who went for 17.3 DK points vs. the Ravens back in Week 5.

Brock Purdy ($5,700) + George Kittle ($6,000)

Purdy has tossed 2 TDs in each of the last 5 games. He’s topped out at 21.7 DK points – but he at least has 25-point upside in Sunday’s plus matchup against a banged-up Cardinals defense with nothing to play for. San Francisco’s 27.0-point implied total is 2nd highest on the main slate.

25 DK points from a $5,700 QB might be enough this week, with Jalen Hurts coming off injury, Josh Allen facing a capable Patriots defense and Patrick Mahomes off the main slate.

With TE Travis Kelce also off the main slate, Kittle has the highest ceiling at the position – especially in this matchup. The Cardinals rank 30th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs and 29th in Football Outsiders’ TE coverage rankings. Kittle smoked them for 84 yards and 2 scores back in Week 11.

Also consider: Josh Allen ($8,400) + Stefon Diggs ($7,900) + Dawson Knox ($4,200), Dak Prescott ($6,600) + CeeDee Lamb ($8,200) + Dalton Schultz ($4,500)
