ThriveFantasy Top Picks Wild Card Weekend


Christian McCaffrey OVER 81.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards

We aren’t getting a ton of points here, but some (75) is better than none. This year, the Seahawks defense allowed the seventh-most rushing yards to running backs and the sixth-most receiving yards to the position. In his lone matchup against the Seahawks this year, McCaffrey went for 138 total yards, thanks to 26 carries and eight targets (six receptions). The 49ers will continue to rely on the ground game, and game script should behoove McCaffrey on Saturday.

Keenan Allen OVER 63.5 Receiving Yards

This game is going to be a lot of fun, and with Mike Williams out of action, expect heavy volume for Allen. Since returning from injury in Week 11, Allen is averaging 84.4 yards per game and has at least 65 receiving yards in six of those eight games. Jacksonville is going to put some points on the board, and the Chargers want to throw it, which benefits Mr. Allen.

Travis Etienne Jr. OVER 62.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards

This feels like a gimme from Thrive! Only the Texans allowed more yards on the ground to opposing running backs, and we’ve seen Etienne torch bad defenses on the ground this season. He’s incredibly talented and gets to face a Chargers defense that ranked 29th in DVOA against the run in the regular season. Yes, he disappointed against the Titans in Week 18, but the Titans have been tough against the run all year. However, in the three games prior to that, Etienne averaged 98 rushing yards and 28.3 receiving yards per game.


Darius Slayton UNDER 0.5 Receiving Touchdowns

Slayton is the big-play guy for this offense, and I guess is technically the de facto WR1, but Minnesota’s corners have been playing some good football of late. Slayton hasn’t found the end zone since Week 10 against Houston, and he has just two touchdowns all season long. He did go for 79 yards against Minnesota back in Week 16, but I just don’t see him finding the end zone in this contest.

Ja'Marr Chase OVER 84.5 Receiving Yards

Chase has a thing for playing in the postseason. In four career playoff games, here are his receiving yard totals: 116, 109, 54, and 89. Chase ended the regular season with four straight games with double-digit targets, and he’s averaged 115.5 yards per game against the Ravens for his career. In his last four games against the Ravens, Joe Burrow has attempted at least 35 pass attempts in each game, and Joe Mixon hasn’t done much on the ground against them over the past two seasons. 


Dalton Schultz OVER 38.5 Receiving Yards

Tampa Bay ranked 24th in DVOA against the tight end position this season and the Bucs were one of just three teams to have allowed at least 850 receiving yards and nine or more scores to the position. Schultz went for 62 yards against the Bucs in Week 1 this season, and the Dallas tight end averaged 46.8 yards per game over the final five weeks of the season. Dak Prescott will need to throw the ball effectively to get the “W” in this one, and Schultz figures to be a prominent part of the game plan.
