This is it. This is my final article of the season at 4for4. Man, I hate goodbyes.

I remember an episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in which Will started to date a famous musician on the show. She had to leave to go on tour, and as he said his goodbye. She responded, “Goodbyes are forever, Will. This is more of a see ya later.”

And that’s what this is, too: a see ya later.

By now, you are probably starting to get the sense that I don’t have anything really useful to write in this intro. You’d be correct.

DraftKings Championship Round Value Plays

With just a two-game slate, I don’t think it makes much sense to give you a high and low-priced value (plus tournament plays) because I’d be listing like half of all available players. For that reason, I’m giving you two options at each position—one value and one GPP play.


QB Russell Wilson, Seattle vs Green Bay, $8000

In terms of safety, I think Wilson is the man this week (followed closely by Andrew Luck). It seems tough to pass up Aaron Rodgers as the cheapest quarterback in the slate, but the Seattle defense sets up really well to effectively defend Green Bay.

I like Luck because, although projected just decently by Vegas, you have to think they’re going to be airing the ball out a lot in that game. Luck could throw for only 6.0 YPA and still reach the 300-yard bonus on DraftKings.

Wilson is my favorite quarterback value, though, because of his legs. The upside isn’t always there if he doesn’t run one into the end zone, but Wilson is always a good bet to score 15-20 fantasy points because he has multiple avenues through which he can score points.
