Week 18 of the NFL Season kicks off with a two-game Saturday slate featuring three teams that need to win if they hope to make the playoffs this season and another team that is locked into it's playoff spot and is resting their starters for this week's matchup.

The first game is a battle between two teams in the AFC South. The Texans take on the Colts where the Texans can win the AFC South with a win and therefore clinch their playoff berth. For the Colts, they need to beat the Texans and then get a loss or tie from the Jacksonville Jaguars in order for them to take the AFC South title. The Colts can also just clinch a playoff berth here by simply winning. 

The TLDR version here is that which ever team wins will make the playoffs and whichever team loses is out.

With matchup number two we have the Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens are locked into the top seed in the AFC and have already announced that Lamar Jackson will not be active for this game. The Steelers need to win and then get a lot of help for them to make the playoffs but the win has to happen and knowing that they are facing the Ravens “B” team should put them in a good spot as a three-point road favorite here to come out on top.

When it comes to this DFS slate it's useful knowing we have three teams that will not be looking to rest their starters and one team that has already announced who is going to be in and out of the lineup.

We’ll have you covered with NFL DFS Projections and full Match-Up Previews for both games as well. Let’s take a look at the top NFL DFS lineup picks and strategies for this two game slate.
