NFL Fanduel: Wild Card Weekend
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 - Drew Brees - NO vs. PHI - $10,400
Its about time Brees and the Saints break the curse outdoors on the road. What better team to do it against than the team with the worst pass defense in football? Expect Brees and the Saints to come out firing. Despite the cold weather this has the makings of a high scoring game.
QB - Andy Dalton - CIN vs. SD - $8,700
Hard to find a true sleeper at QB with only a handful available. Outside of the marque names of Brees and Rodgers, Dalton may be the next best option. After a slow middle of the season, Dalton and star WR AJ Green seem to have reconnected making for one of the most dangerous duos in football. Dalton finished the season with 3 of this top five fantasy outputs of the season including a 31.52 point output week 16. San Diego has show vulnerability to the pass at times this season. Has the makings of a sneaky good game.
RB - Frank Gore - SF vs. GB - $6,100
All the talk is about Charles and McCoy and they both had great season but this is playoffs and we need nothing but the best this week. San Fransisco knows how to win in the playoffs -- control the clock and play great defense. Gore is the key to the offensive portion of that strategy and just to sweeten the deal, is going up against the 25th ranked defense against the run. A good match-up all around for Gore.
RB - Donald Brown - IND vs. KC - $5,800
You can really save some money with our two picks at RB this week. Brown is splitting carries with Trent Richardson but seems to have a nose for the end zone. He has found paydirt 3 times in the past two weeks. Indy is going to put up some points. Brown should get some touches and some opportunity to be a big time sleeper pick this week.
WR - AJ Green - CIN vs. SD - $8,800
If you believe in the Dalton-Green connection this week than you have to go with both players. Green has the highest upside of any of the WR in this week's class. If a player is going to go off for 30+ its going to be Green.
WR - James Jones - GB vs. SF - $5,200
Aaron Rodgers is back which means James Jones can now come out of the shadows and reemerge as a legit threat. He has had 15 receptions over the past two weeks, second only to Jordy Nelson on the team. It is a bit of a stretch but he has shown the ability to have big games in the playoffs in the past. Great sleeper pick.
TE - Jimmy Graham - NO vs. PHI - $7,600
If you can afford him take him, especially if you are using Drew Brees at QB. No WR has been more consistent. You can pencil him in for somewhere around 100/1 on the low end with 2/3 TD potential.
TE - Andrew Quarless - GB vs. SF - $4,800
Quarless was one of Matt Flynn's favorite targets and put up some big numbers in weeks 14, 15. Rodgers has a history of using his TE's in the playoffs. No Jermichael Finley opens the door for Quarless as a sleeper pick.
K - Adam Vaniteri - IND vs. KC - $5,600
Has there been a more clutch playoff kicker in the history of the NFL?
K - Shayne Graham - NO vs. PHI - $5,000
Best of the 5k options. The Saints are going to put up some points this week.
DEF - Cincinnati Bengals - vs. SD - $6,200
Defense wins championships. A lot of experts are leaning towards Cincy as a dark horse championship contender. If they get there it will be primarily due to the defense. They have been one of the best in fantasy this year and have a chance to do some damage against Philip Rivers who has a history of playoff failure.
DEF - San Diego Chargers - vs. CIN - $5,000
Cheap, and a bit of a crap shoot but if you believe they can shut down AJ Green they could hold Cincy to a low number.
