FanDuel NFL Lineups: Divisional Playoffs 2018

FanDuel NFL Lineups: Divisional Playoffs 2018

And if they do get in the Super Bowl, the National Football League at least has a plan in place to keep things as fair as possible.

In the meantime there's a great weekend of playoff action to look forward to. A victory over the Titans will send the Patriots to the AFC championship game for the seventh straight season.

Here's my picks for the divisional round.

I feel really good about three of these home teams in my teaser, with the Eagles being the lone wart. And no, Foles hasn't inspired any confidence since replacing Carson Wentz as the starter in Week 15. Second, Nick Foles is bad. Quarterback Case Keenum has shocked the nation, coming off the bench to spark a prolific offense. The Jaguars have a young, hungry, and extremely talented defense, but their offense is bad. However, Philadelphia is a home underdog here against the spastic and inconsistent Atlanta Falcons. That's what Eagles fans will be hoping helps their team win. I don't see anyway that the Patriots don't win this game. If they get into a 21-3 hole against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium, there probably won't be any digging out of it.

Instead of hosting a Kansas City team that dismantled them in Week 1, they instead get a Titans team that has been up-and-down all year.

"And this is a Titans team that if they can't run the ball will struggle to move as an offense".

Either way, it has been a long time since a team has had the shot that the Vikings do. With DeMarco Murray ruled out again, Henry could make a difference. Patriots win 31-20.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be out to prove that 30-9 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5 was a fluke. Bortles also went without a touchdown pass, while throwing one interception. But expect the Steelers to commit to the run this time, even if they get behind early.

NEXT (NXT) Rating Reiterated by Jefferies Group
The shares were purchased at an average price of GBX 264 ($3.58) per share, for a total transaction of £2,508 ($3,401.14). John G Ullman & Associates Inc holds 1.41% of its portfolio in American Software, Inc. for 636,354 shares.

So that makes it 1-1 in the battle of established quarterbacks vs. new kids on the block so far in the 2018 National Football League playoffs.

That's why I expect the entire divisional round of the playoffs to be closer to the noncompetitive Falcons-Rams game. Antonio Brown is fully healthy, and have I mentioned that Blake Bortles is trash?

This could be one of the games of the season.

Proving Brees' point, the two teams have gone through a number of roster changes since their Week 1 clash. They took advantage of critical Rams special teams turnovers and converted them into points, while the defense took care of the young Rams offense. The rest of his team will just need to be on its A game.

Julio Jones ($8,500), a wide receiver many NFL DFS players have been frustrated with this season, had nine receptions, 13 rushing yards, and 94 receiving yards.

The Vikings defense will seemingly match-up well against the Saints offense but it will depend on how well the Saints running back core hold up. Minnesota's linebackers and defensive front featuring Everson Griffin and Linval Joseph will also face the tall task of shutting down New Orleans' two-headed backfield of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. That's fine, the Saints will just put the game in the hands of their 11-time Pro Bowl and Super Bowl MVP quarterback.

While many were trying to find ways to pay for Michael Thomas last week, Ted Ginn Jr. The matchup between Minnesota and New Orleans will pit strength against strength as the Saints' vaunted offense takes on the Vikings' stingy defense.
