Draft Kings NFL Guide (WILDCARD WEEKEND)

I know I promised I would put this up last night, but promises are meant to be broken. I got sidetracked watching the Celtics game, and next thing you knew I was pretty drunk and didn’t feel like combing through player stats and whatnot to make this blog. Sue me (Please don’t. I’m broke as fuck). Anyway, I got up bright and early for you guys just to get this shit done because that’s how dedicated I am to my blog that averages about 10 page views a day. Enough talk.

So there you have it: My lineups for what is sure to be a great wildcard weekend. One thing I should note off the bat is to pay close attention to the injury report. A lot of people, especially wide receivers, are questionable right now. Although I doubt anybody capable of playing will sit out of a game as important as this, it’s something to keep an eye on later in the afternoon. As you can see, I have a lot of faith in the running abilities of Zeke, Chris Carson, and Jordan Howard this week, which can be seen in the fact I played the 3 of them in all 3 lineups. As for receivers, I’m really not sure what to expect. That’s why I relied heavily on matching up receivers with whatever QB I played in that particular lineup, hoping for some double points action should a touchdown be thrown. It’s a strategy I’ve done before, but not something I genuinely like to do because I feel like I’m limiting myself and relying too much on one game. But who knows? This is wildcard weekend after all, so maybe something crazy will happen and one of these lineups will accrue a shitload of points. I entered into some pretty pricy contests this weekend, so here’s to some wishful thinking and hoping I’m a millionaire come Monday.
