Wild Card Round DraftKings Picks

By Jared Smola 9:01am EST 1/3/20


It’s tough to get away from Drew Brees ($6,600). He’s easily our top projected QB on Wild Card Weekend but checks in 2nd at the position in DraftKings price and just $800 more than the cheapest QB, Tom Brady. The difference in dollars per point between Brees and the 2nd-best QB value (Josh Allen) is bigger than the gap between Allen and the 7th-best value (Kirk Cousins). Brees averaged 24.3 DK points in his 10 healthy games this season — and 27.7 at home.

If you’re looking to get away from a chalky Brees, consider Josh Allen ($6,500). The dual-threat QB has flashed plenty of upside this season, with 4 games of 22+ DK points. And he has the best QB matchup of the week against a Texans squad sitting 26th in Football Outsiders’ pass defense DVOA and 29th in DK points allowed to QBs.
