This weekend is actually my favorite of the NFL season, with four playoff games, conveniently peppered from Saturday afternoon (meaning an early tee time before the Oakland kickoff works) to Sunday early evening. I do love this first weekend more than even next, because if we are going to see the unexpected this post-season, it will be this weekend and Super Bowl Sunday.
That said, I am not too optimistic about the Raiders this weekend, but I do have some DFS selections for sure. Here are a few.
Eli Manning ($6100): All the Giants have is a passing game, and one thing the Packers lack is a pass defense.
LeVeon Bell ($10,200): Money player, at home during the playoffs. Bell can run, and he can catch, and I am guessing he will have the Dolphins defense second guessing themselves.
Jalen Richard ($3400): Richard is elusive, runs and receives out of the backfield, and returns punts. Among the three Raiders RBs, he is the one who couples the combination of cost with opportunity. As in Latavius Murray is more expensive, and DeAndre Washington will get fewer opportunities.
Eli Rogers ($4000): A steal, Rogers will benefit playing off Antonio Brown and bag maybe six catches, and a bunch of points to go with.
Seattle ($3700): It is a big game, and the Seahawks do have the best D of any of the playoff teams, and they are going against an inexperienced counterpart.
