DraftKings Wild Card Round GPP Breakdown
Even though we're dealing with a small slate, there are a good amount of inexpensive plays to fill out lineups around core building blocks Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, LeVeon Bell, Lamar Miller, Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham, Jordy Nelson, Doug Baldwin, Davante Adams, Jimmy Graham, Steelers D/ST, and Texans D/ST. You already know that all of those guys -- especially the Steelers players -- are viable options, so below are my favorite plays not among those listed above.
Matt Moore $5,100 @ PIT
There are three things to hang your hat on with Moore: 1) Moore has produced multiple TDs in three straight starts. 2) Opposing passing games are correlated, and with Ben Roethlisberger projected to lead all QBs in fantasy scoring, Moore has some appeal in a potential shootout in a game with the highest over/under (46) of the Wild Card round. 3) Moore is our second-best projected value behind Russell Wilson.
Eli Manning $6,100 @ GB
In addition to the Packers having put three corners, including top cover man Sam Shields, on IR this season, Quinten Rollins (concussion) is doubtful and Damarious Randall will likely play through a knee injury this week. The Packers are ranked 29th in QB aFPA.
