The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs is here and Johnny G is back with his FanDuel lineup covering all four games Saturday and Sunday. The Patriots are hosting the Chiefs first, followed by the Packers traveling to the Cardinals. Sunday’s games start with the Seahawks vs. Panthers in Carolina and the weekend finishes up with the Broncos hosting the Steelers.
There are six quality defenses left out of the eight teams which can make it tough picking out the fantasy points, which is why we are leaning on the averages at quarterback and defense.
It should be a great weekend of football. Let us know what you think of the lineup below or if we missed a better matchup in the comment section. We’re hoping to get a Sunday only lineup for you also, so stay tuned for that. Sign up for our email list at the bottom of the page and you can get all of our lineups sitting in your inbox everyday.
FanDuel 1/16/16-1/17/16 NFL Playoffs Divisional Round Lineup Week 19:
|QB||Cam Newton||Sea @ Car||8700||Carolina's good because Cam can play. Even if they lose, he'll get points. Highest price, but highest ceiling. The Seattle D could keep ownership down on Cam.|
|RB||Fitzgerald Toussaint||Pit @ Den||6200||DeAngelo is officially out, so Toussaint is the play. Should easily get us 10 FPP just in checkdowns (just like he did last week).|
|RB||David Johnson||GB @ Ari||8500||Ownership will probably be around 60%, but I'm good with it. The Cards should have a 2nd half lead which will get DJ carries.|
|WR||Emmanuel Sanders||Pit @ Den||7700||Pittsburgh secondary is 28th against the pass. Enough said.|
|WR||Ted Ginn Jr||Sea @ Car||6500||Questionable, but should play. He's a different receiver since their last meeting with Seattle.|
|WR||James Jones||GB @ Ari||6500||Peterson shadowed him last time and yes, that is cause for worry, but JJ is the king of the broken play/Rodgers on the move reception and the Packers have found a little more time for A-Rodg recently. Garbage time TD?|
|Kicker||Cairo Santos||KC @ NE||4800||Belichick will have a plan after 2 weeks off and I think it means red zone stops and Santos FGs.|
|TE||Heath Miller||Pit @ Den||5400||Without Brown and possibly without the ability to throw more than 10 yards, Big Ben will look to his trusted outlet. Gronk & Olsen will get the attention here, so I like the contrarian play.|
|Defense||Broncos||Pit @ Den||5300||It's the Broncos at home against a team with no #1 receiver and no #1 or #2 RB.|
As always, check the injury report before kickoff. Good luck in your NFL FanDuel 50/50’s and tournaments in the Divisional Round!
