Yahoo Divisional Round Slate Breakdown
The regular season is over but it doesn’t mean DFS has to come to a halt.
We have a four-game slate for the Divisional Round and when slates are this small, you usually want to attack tournaments more than cash games. Let’s go position-by-position and find some of the better plays of the weekend.
Despite not having played in two weeks, Lamar Jackson ($40) should be set to have another big day, and the rest should have helped him heal a bit after taking so many hits and running so much during the regular season. No other quarterback on this slate (or in the league) touches Jackson’s rushing ability, which will make all the difference. He obviously led all passers in carries per game (11.7), red zone carries per game (1.8) and rushing yards per game (80.9). This matchup is okay, not great but it doesn’t matter with Jackson, who finished the season averaging a gaudy 0.69 fantasy points per dropback. Tennessee also fails to pressure the quarterback at a high rate, doing so 21.1% of the time, the eighth-lowest rate in football. They also knocked opposing quarterbacks down on just 4.5% of their dropbacks, easily the lowest rate in football. Meanwhile, nearly 63% of quarterbacks tossed multiple touchdowns against the Titans this season, making it almost a priority to lock Jackson into your cash game lineups and move on.
