Wild Card Weekend and what to do? Arguably, three of the four games on tap belong on an “Undesirables” poster. Do you need a way to spice up an otherwise unwatchable Houston/Oakland game? Solution! Play daily fantasy! Whether you are a first-time, small-stakes player or an experienced high-roller, you will find a contest to suit your needs.
Heading into the weekend, Oakland, Houston, and Miami are all starting QBs whom they would rather see on the bench. With the dearth of talent at quarterback, offense will be at a premium, and you can bet tickets will be filled with Pittsburgh Steelers as they look to have drawn the match-up of the week.
Daily fantasy players will pay dearly for the likes of Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, forcing them to sacrifice elsewhere on the roster.
Is that the best play, nonetheless? Time will tell, definitively, but here’s how I’m setting my DraftKings lineup for Wild Card Weekend. (Point per reception scoring is in effect. Lineups consist of 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 DST. You have $50,000 to spend on those nine roster spots.)
