DFS Kicker and DST Analysis: Conference Championship Edition

With just two games on tap this weekend, the DST and kicker breakdown won’t be very long. All four defensive options project for 20-30% ownership, but only one of them squares off against an offense ranked 15th or worse in defensive aFPA. Let’s get to it!


  • The New England Patriots ($5,200/$3,500) come in as the most expensive defense on FanDuel and second-most expensive on DraftKings. They boast the second-high median projection as they are 8.5-point home favorites against a Jaguars team implied for 18.75 points. The Patriots did an excellent job at limiting scoring opportunities for opponents, holding them to the sixth-lowest scoring rate, but they tend to play a “bend don’t break” defense as they ranked 25th in turnover rate. However, they still generated the 10th-most sacks this season.
