Fantasy football: DFS Do’s and Don’ts for NFL divisional weekend

Drew Loftis takes a look at which players are good options and which aren’t in the NFL divisional playoff games this weekend:

Divisional Do’s & Don’ts

Jimmy Garoppolo QB, 49ers, vs. Vikings (FanDuel $7,800/DraftKings $5,600)

Do: If you are going to pivot away from Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes, Jimmy G. provides a cheap option in a good matchup. And we like the 49ers receivers, hence, we like the correlation with their QB.

Aaron Jones RB, Packers, vs. Seahawks (FD $8,200/DK $7,400)

Don’t: We don’t mind the matchup, and we like the player. But we worry about ownership percentage. After Damien Williams, Jones has the highest projected ownership, based on analysis by multiple sites.

Dalvin Cook RB, Vikings, at 49ers (FD $8,000/DK $8,000)

Do: This is based on the fade-up theory. If we’re are steering away from Jones and Williams, Cook offers similar upside with lower ownership, thanks to tougher matchup and his cost.

Sammy Watkins WR, Chiefs, vs. Titans (FD $5,200/DK $4,300)

Don’t: Many might be looking for a cheap option with strong upside, and Watkins meets those criteria. But he is projected for high ownership. Call us kooky, but if we’re going to dabble in such chalky options, we want someone who has scored a TD since Week 1.

Mark Andrews TE, Ravens, vs. Titans (FD $6,800/DK $5,600)

Do: He is battling an ankle injury, but is expected to play. The Titans gave up the sixth-most PPR points to tight ends in the regular season. Travis Kelce and George Kittle on the same slate should push Andrews’ ownership rates down.

George Kittle TE, 49ers, vs. Vikings (FD $7,400/DK $6,200)

Don’t: Speaking of Kittle, he will be highly owned, but the Vikings allowed just one TD to a tight end the entire regular season (Denver’s Troy Fumagalli in Week 11). If spending this much, we prefer Kelce.
