NFL Fanduel: Division Round Studs & Sleepers

NFL Fanduel: Divisional Round
Studs & Sleepers

Its playoff time! Each week we give you a stud and a bargain at each position to help you win your Fanduel match-ups. Lets take a look at some of the players you should be starting this week...

QB - Tom Brady - NE vs. IND - $9,000
Alex Smith was able to score 44 points on this defense. Imagine what a playoff om Brady at home will be able to do. The Pats defense is pretty beat up at this point which could turn this into a shootout situation.
QB - Philip Rivers - SD vs. DEN - $8,000
Rivers was able to out duel Manning a month ago in Denver. Odds are he will be playing from behind and airing it out for much of the game. Denver has been vulnerable through the air this year. A 300 yard day isn't out of the question.
RB - Ryan Mathews - SD vs. DEN - $7,600
Mathews had a monster game against them back in December. The Broncos have not been very good against the run this season and that trend is bound to continue so long as the game stays close.
RB - Montee Ball - DEN vs. SD -$5,000
Ball and Moreno have more of less split carries down the stretch. This week one costs 8,500 and the other 5,000. Make sense to you? Looks like a bargain with the latter.
WR - Wes Welker - DEN vs. SD - $7,800
Back from his recent concussion and ready to roll. Welker lives for these type of big time games. In the Denver offense you can only cover so many guys. Little Wes is likely to get lost in the shuffle and could be in line for a big game.
WR - Steve Smith - CAR vs. SF - $4,500
He is injured and questionable so take this with a grain of salt but if he does play he is an absolute steal at the league min. Signs point to him playing. Its one of the biggest games of his career. If he can run he'll be out there and if hes out there he will be Cam Newton's #1 target.
TE - Julius Thomas - DEN vs. SD - $6,800
Red-zone threat, all around threat. Should get his hands one at least one ball in the end zone this weekend.
TE - Coby Fleener - IND vs. NE - $4,900
Had a very respectable game last week. The Patriots are going to do everything they can to stop TY Hilton. That should open things up for the other Indy receivers. Fleener and Luck have a ton of history together in big games dating back to their days at Stanford. He is a security blanket for Luck that should get plenty of looks.
K - Stephen Gostkowski - NE vs. IND - $5,800
The Pats are going to put up some points, there is no doubt about it. That bodes well for Gostkowski. Keep in mind that Gostkowski is very familiar with the history of the kicking position of the Pats. They are going up against the man who owns the record books in New England. He should be motivated in this one.
K - Adam Vinatieri - IND vs. NE - $5,500
Speaking of that man. Vinatieri is probably the most clutch playoff kicker in the history of the NFL. He will be going up against his former mates in a place he is oh so familiar with. If the game is on the line there is no one in the building I'd rather have.
DEF - San Francisco 49ers  - vs. CAR - $6,200
This could be the defensive showdown of the year. Two hard nosed teams that play some fantastic defense. In that situation why not go with the team you expect to win the game.
DEF - New Orleans Saints - vs. SEA - $5,000
A bit of a crap shoot here but it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that the Saints get some revenge. Seattle doesn't have a track record of running up big point totals. The Saints are a much better defense under Rob Ryan that they have been in the past. This could be that statement game they have been looking for since bounty gate.
