NFL DFS Playbook: Wild Card Weekend
Howard Bender pores over the data and studies the match-ups to bring you his favorite plays for NFL Wild Card Weekend's DFS slates.
Welcome to the DFS Playbook for NFL Wild Card Weekend!
We've got a short slate of four games this weekend, so allow me to jump onto my "only GPP tournaments" soapbox and remind you that I don't like to play cash games on short slates due to the heavy player overlap and increased pay lines. The NFL playoffs should be about having some fun and taking chances with tournaments. If you like to play heavy on short slates, by all means, throw your money down and enter a number of lineups in multi-entry contests. I won't begrudge that. I just won't be a lamb headed to the slaughter. I prefer single-entry GPP contests. The payouts aren't as big as these multi-entry contests, but I'm willing to forego the big prizes in order to go one-on-one with everyone; not me and two lineups going against someone whose lineup generator just spit out 150 lineups. That's just not how I play.
As a result, I will be looking at some under-the-radar plays here as the way you differentiate yourself from the pack is finding that low-cost, low-owned hidden gem who goes off for you. We'll have some of the better chalk plays I like listed as well, so don't you worry. We got you covered well here...
