NFL Fanduel Divisional Round Playoff Bargains & Studs

Wild on Sports
NFL Fanduel:  Divisional Round Playoffs
The playoffs are here and Fanduel is still going strong! Once again we take a look at the players you should have in your line-up this weekend, one stud, one bargain. Goof luck everyone!

QB - Tom Brady  vs. Houston Texans  $9,700
While getting the label of highest priced player this week he also has the potential for most points. Brady and the Patriots lit up the Texans a few weeks ago in New England and while it is likely to be a closer affair this time around, there will be plenty of points scored. The opportunity exists for less of a need for a running game if the score stays close. 300/3/0 should be the expectation in this one.
QB - Colin Kaepernick  vs. Green Bay Packers  $7,900
One of the cheaper options at QB this week and is going up against a Green Bay defense that is vulnerable through the air. Kaepernick is a risk reward type play compared to the other higher priced QB's but that is the risk you run with any bargain pick. Should be somewhere around 265/2/1
RB - Marshawn Lynch  vs. Atlanta Falcons  $8,400
Lynch got a little banged up in the second half of last weekend's game against the Redskins but returned in the 4th to help lead the team to victory. It is playoff time so injuries are often pushed aside as players tough it out for a chance at playoff glory. The Seahawks are going to need him to chew up the clock again this week if they hope to keep the high flying Falcon's offense off the field. Expect a line of 110/1 for Lynch this week.
RB - DuJaun Harris  vs.  San Francisco Giants  $5,500
Bit of a sleeper pick here. Harris has gotten the bulk of the carries for Green Bay in recent weeks. While you shouldn't expect him to put up jaw dropping rushing totals, his ability to catch balls out of the back-field and touches in the red-zone should make him worth of a low priced flyer this week. Line: 50yd rush, 5/25 catch, 1 TD
WR - Wes Welker  vs. Houston Texans  $7,800
Brady to Welker, Brady to Welker and more Brady to Welker this week. If you are going with one you should probably have the other. This is a combo that rarely disappoints. Expect 9/120/1
WR - Tory Smith  vs.  Denver Broncos  $5,200
Another low price, high reward pick with Smith. That seems to be the name of the game with him more so than any other player this season. Some games you get 5/80/1, others you get 2/20/0. Here's to hoping its that first option.
TE - Tony Gonzalez  vs.  Seattle Seahawks  $5,600
Can you believe that Tony Gonzalez has never won a playoff game in his long NFL career? Well, many believe this to be his last season, despite putting up terrific numbers once again. Really can't imagine his career ending without a win. He will need to be the focal point in the Falcon's offensive attach if they are going to be successful against a stingy pass defense. Expect 5/85/1.
TE - Dennis Pita  vs.  Denver Broncos  $5,400
As good as the Broncos defense is, no team has given up more fantasy points to TE's this season. Pita had 125 yards and 2 TD's against the Broncos in a late season loss. Those kind of numbers might be beyond expectation this week but a line of 4/80/1 isn't out of the question.
K - Stephen Gostkowski  vs. Houston Texan  $5,100
January weather in New England can be tricky. In week 17 against Miami the Patriots had to pass up a number of field goal opportunities in the 40-50 yard range. In good conditions Gostkowski is as good as any around. Check the weather report before making your pick here.
DEF - Atlanta Falcons vs. Seattle Seahawks  $5,100
No match-up really sticks out at this point. Possibly Denver vs Baltimore? Not sold here. We are banking on a couple of rookie mistakes dooming Russel Wilson and the Seahawks. Pick a team out of a hat here.
