In reviewing the weather one more time before we kickoff the Wildcard weekend, obviously game one is in the dome so we are only looking at Cincinnati for tonight. It is expected to be in the upper 40’s for the game with a high of 49º and little to no wind. There is expected to be some drizzle throughout but for the most part weather is not going to be a factor in this one. For more information just come here.
Now for the part that we know you have all been waiting for, give me the lineup that will win. I know, I know, we have done this quite significantly in the past and now we have our lineup analyzer providing automatic lineup recommendations but what do I think. Here is my top 3 lineups for week both All Games & Saturday Only on Draftkings:
Alex Smith has been a highly productive QB in the playoffs going for 9 TD’s and 0 INT’s. Can you afford to not take Brown when it is a Saturday Only contest? I don’t think so but overall, I have a different opinion. There really is no value in taking Brown this weekend due to the highest price of the season. So if you take him, in order for him to be worth his cost, his Needed Points (our custom metric at The DiRT Canon is 30.34 when considering that the 4 games contest average for the season in order to cash was 158 points. Combine that with the fact that Brown hasn’t even scored that many points total against Cincy all season, that is a risk play.
For Saturday only, you have to take him because what other WR’s have an upside in the 30’s. It’s all about Brown, Green and Hopkins. Pick the right two with Maclin and you can afford the rest of the guys but if you want all three top guys, here is what you end up with.
For Saturday only (TOP) & All Games (Bottom) here is the top lineup:
FanDuel lineups for the week below:
Logan Cartwright’s Expert Picks
While the value play at Defense is certainly Washington, Seattle is the top projected team this weekend so if you can afford them, they shouldn’t disappoint you this weekend. WR Rankings are Brown, Hopkins, Baldwin but AJ has owned the Steelers this season, scoring over 28 fantasy points in each contest on DraftKings and 17.8 or higher on FanDuel. We project on FanDuel only needing to score 119.68 this weekend so chalk plays are going to get you the necessary points to win. Going cheap on RB this weekend is the likely play with Lynch and DeLo out, the only top RB is Peterson and he is playing the #1 Rush defense in terms of fantasy points given up this season to the RB1 position.
