Hill has averaged fewer than 10 FD points per game in his past three contests (left Week 18 early) and is dealing with a heel injury.

The Steelers and Chiefs cap off Sunday’s playoff action in what could be Ben Roethlisberger’s last game . The Chiefs are the favorite to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl and are currently a 12.5-point favorite over Pittsburgh via DraftKings sportsbook. DFS players will cringe at the idea of playing Roethlisberger, so we’ll take him in the off chance he has a big game and keeps his career alive for one more week. There’s also a scenario where the Chiefs blow out the Steelers , and Big Ben and co. put up a ton of garbage-time numbers, so there’s an outside shot this lineup pays off , even if the

Sunday's final wild card games features the Steelers and the Chiefs in what could be Ben Roethlisberger's last game in the NFL, and we're calling on two of his pass-catchers to go along with a healthy dose of chalk on the Kansas City side. Our FanDuel single-game lineup has injury risk, a boom-or-bust, and a rookie TE that'll hopefully give us enough differentiation for DFS tournaments.

Here are the key scoring settings for FanDuel single-game contests: The point total for the "MVP" is multiplied by 1.5, but he doesn't cost any additional money like the "Captain" in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel's default scoring is half-point PPR and four-point passing TDs, and there are no bonuses for 100/300-yard games like on DraftKings.

FanDuel Single - Game DFS Picks : Eagles vs. Buccaneers. ,000 budget, need at least one player from each team. MVP: (1.5x points): QB Jalen Hurts, Eagles (,000). Hurts is a very chalky play in most single - game contests, but with Tom Brady, Mike Evans, Leonard Fournette (hamstring), and Rob Gronkowski on the other side, he's viable in our MVP chair. We know he can have minimal passing success and pay off in DFS , especially since FanDuel doesn't award bonus points for 300-yard passing games. In fact, Hurts still put up 26 FD points against Tampa earlier this season with just 115 passing

MVP: (1.5x points): WR Tyreek Hill, Chiefs ($13,500)

Hill has averaged fewer than 10 FD points per game in his past three contests (left Week 18 early) and is dealing with a heel injury. This means we can do one of two things -- fade him or double down. We're going aggressive with him in our MVP spot, the injury concerns should keep much of the field away Pittsburgh is strong against TEs but generous against WRs, so we're banking on a classic Hill explosion to get the Chiefs started in the playoffs.

NFL playoff picks, predictions for wild-card games: 49ers upset Cowboys; Bills, Cardinals win rubber matches

  NFL playoff picks, predictions for wild-card games: 49ers upset Cowboys; Bills, Cardinals win rubber matches In our picks and predictions for 2021 NFL wild-card weekend, a pair of NFC upsets upend the bracket while the Chiefs, Bengals and Bills keep things chalk in the AFC.Last season, the lower seed was 4-2 S/U in the wild card round. Where will the upsets come from this season? Will the Raiders continue their Cinderella run at Cincinnati? Joe Burrow will try to lead the Bengals to their first postseason victory since the 1990 playoffs.

Saturday kicks off the final weekend of the NFL ’s regular season with a pair of contests. The Broncos host the Chiefs in the afternoon, and the Eagles host the Cowboys in the nightcap. You won’t find any Broncos in this Saturday FanDuel lineup , though. Not only are we rolling with the Chiefs The game in Philadelphia is tough to navigate for DFS since both teams have questionable motivations here, but the upside is strong, so our Saturday main-slate picks include a pair of Eagles and Cowboys. There are a ton of potential chalk plays on the board, so we found some sneaky value fit for GPP tournaments .

FULL SLATE DFS LINEUPS : DraftKings. Full Wild Card Roster FanDuel Picks : NFL DFS Lineup Tips. Saturday main roster, ,000 budget, no more than four players from a team. QB Matthew Stafford, Rams vs. Cardinals (,600). RB Darrel Williams, Chiefs vs. Steelers (,600). Williams is a more explosive running back and receiver than Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder), and Pittsburgh has been among the worst teams against fantasy running backs. Tyreek Hill (heel) is banged up and Travis Kelce has been somewhat inconsistent this year, so the RB position in Kansas City has never had a

FLEX: TE Pat Freiermuth, Steelers ($8,500)

Freiermuth was out in the first matchup against Kansas City with a concussion, and here's to Big Ben feeding him a ton of volume. Freiermuth is tied for first among tight ends in red-zone targets (20), and whether he scores in garbage time or early in the game, those fantasy points count the same.

FANDUEL SINGLE-GAME LINEUPS:

LV-CIN | NE-BUF | PHI-TB | SF-DAL | ARI-LAR

FLEX: QB Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($17,500)

Mahomes is the chalkiest play possible, but we're rolling with him here. We're running a classic QB-WR-WR stack here and avoiding Travis Kelce, so hopefully we can still include Mahomes while getting some differentiation.

FULL-SLATE DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKings

FLEX: WR Diontae Johnson, Steelers ($12,500)

Johnson drew 10 or more targets in 12 games this season, and although FanDuel isn't full-PPR scoring, he'll have plenty of opportunities to produce. The Steelers are already a pass-first offense, and with Kansas City on the other side of the ball, expect Big Ben to throw 50-plus passes in an effort to keep his career alive for one more week. Johnson has also scored seven touchdowns this year, so it's not as if he's purely a PPR machine.

Follow for complete results from the 2022 NFL wild-card playoff game.Cincinnati clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC after the team defeated the Chiefs 34-31 in Week 17. Joe Burrow was benched the following week, during the Bengals' 21-16 loss to the Browns, and got some extra time to prepare for his first playoff game. Meanwhile, Derek Carr is coming off a wild 35-32 overtime win against the Chargers that granted Las Vegas the No. 7 seed in the playoffs.

FanDuel Single Game DFS Picks : 49ers vs. cowboys. Budget of ,000, at least one player from each team is needed. MVP: (1.5x points): WR Deebo Samuel, 49ers (,000). Ezekiel Elliott is unpredictable at this point in his career, and Pollard has played about 40 percent of the Cowboys’ running back snaps for most of the season. Pollard is the most explosive athlete and has real home run potential at a fair price for DFS . Jennings and Pollard should give us the right formula to avoid having the same lineup as a bunch of people with our Samuel and Lamb picks .

SUNDAY-ONLY DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKings

FLEX: WR Byron Pringle, Chiefs ($8,000)

The last time these teams squared off, Pringle scored 22.5 FD points with a two-touchdown, 75-yard day. Travis Kelce was out of action on the reserve/COVID list so that certainly helped, but we'll take Pringle as a DFS dart throw since he obviously presents a matchup problem for the Steelers. Especially if the Chiefs jump out to a huge lead, expect Pringle to get plenty of snaps in an effort to rest Hill (after Hill has scored plenty of points, of course). Garbage time could work to the benefit of both teams in DFS.
