NFL DFS Playbook: Wild Card Round
Howard Bender pores over the data and match-ups to bring you his favorite plays for this weekend's NFL DFS Wild Card Round contests.
Welcome to the DFS Playbook for the NFL Wild Card Round of the playoffs!
So here we are again. We've got four games -- two Saturday and two Sunday -- and it's time to start building some DFS lineups. As we normally do, we are sticking with GPP tournaments for the playoffs, as opposed to worrying about cash games. Again, too much overlap for cash game play. You also have to take into account, and this will show up in our NFL DFS Ownership page, Draft Kings is featuring the four-game slate as their main, classic slate. However, FanDuel has opted to break it up into two two-game slates. They do have four-game slate contests, but they're apparently focusing their bigger prize pools on the individual days instead of the weekend. That won't affect how we view the Playbook, though, I will say, if you are playing just the two-game slates on FanDuel, you should really focus on some contrarian plays. You can find some here, but you should also check out Jen Piacenti's Bargains Video for a few more.
