Marshawn Lynch is back and the NFL Playoffs DFS qualifiers cannot avoid him. The Seahawks play the Eagles on the Wild Card on Sunday, while the Vikings take on the Saints, and we have FanDuel GPP tips to make a winning streak.
We go with a stack of Eagles as we weaken the TEs in Philadelphia, a line-up that will be virtually non-existent from others coming up on Sunday. This gives us a chance to differentiate, with Dalvin Cook and Michael Thomas offering a good floor.
NFL Playoffs DFS Options: FanDuel GPP Wild Card Sunday Lineup
Eagles vs. QB Carson Wentz Seahawks ($ 8,100). Wentz has managed to throw over 4,000 yards this season without a WR top 500 – this is the first time in NFL history. We’ll count on Wentz to keep going to the Wild Card around a defense that struggled to quit Week 17.
RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Saints ($ 8,200). Cook is expected to be healthy and back on the field for Minnesota against New Orleans and should see all the work he can handle after recovering from injury in the last two weeks.
RB Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks @ Eagles ($ 5,900). Wait for another double-digit week and the goalkeeper line is looking for the beast to run – maybe Seattle won’t get late in the yard line this time around when it’s Lynch’s chance to hit it.
WR Michael Thomas, Saints vs. Vikings ($ 9,200). You could fade Thomas if you want to play Alvin Kamara, but the Vikings defense is more difficult than the secondary, so we’ll stick with Thomas’ chalk game.
Greg Ward Jr., Eagles vs. WR Seahawks ($ 5,900). Ward is Wentz’s definitive No. 1 WR and the transformed QB continues to show the ability to open down the lanes. It may not lead to a huge day, but it’s a stack to have with Wentz on GPPs.
WR Deontay Burnett vs. Eagles Seahawks ($ 5,200). Burnett slots unlike one of Philly’s tight ends, which is a game many others won’t get. It may not pay to weaken Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, but we have to differentiate somewhere, and Burnett saw four goals in Week 17.
TE Taysom Hill, Saints v. Vikings ($ 5,300). Shoutout FanDuel to offer Hill the opportunity at a point other than the QB. There will be a lot of Eagles and Jared Cook ownership in this slot position, so hopefully Hill’s rebound per contact yields the lowest price for us.
FLEX Stefon Diggs, Vikings @ Saints ($ 7,600). Remember the last time Diggs played the Saints in the playoffs? It may not be a miracle twice, but it can still have a good game on Sunday.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. D / ST Seahawks ($ 4,000). Seattle’s offense has shown some real contraction in its armor lately, and we’ll try to take advantage of this with an admittedly not-so-exciting Eagles defense that we hit mostly for the lowest price in the slate.
