It’s the Divisional Round and these are my FanDuel cash game and tournament strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process.  

On short slates, it’s usually wise to dial back volume and favor GPPs. The small player pool leads to a lot of overlap between lineups, leading to more variance. Since virtually any player that sees significant playing time is in play on such a small slate, this breakdown will take a look at each position in terms of potential core and contrarian plays, rather than the traditional breakdown format that we have used all season.


FanDuel’s main slates are the one-day slates, so all salaries will pertain to those respective set of games.

Passing Games

Chiefs vs Colts

The weekend kicks off with what is expected to be the highest-scoring game of the week with Indianapolis visiting Kansas City—the over/under currently sits at 57 with a spread of 5.5. Both teams threw at a top-five rate in neutral game script over the final six weeks of the season and those pass-heavy attacks should result in Patrick Mahomes ($9,000) and Andrew Luck ($8,500)  being the highest-own quarterbacks of the weekend. These two should be staples in cash game lineups and will be the most popular quarterbacks in my personal portfolio.
