FANTASY FOOTBALL PLAYOFF DIVISION ROUND
BUSTS OF THE WEEK
BEAST DOME NATION.
After this week Fantasy Football will be delegated to two games. This is your last chance to have some variety with your roster and give yourself a realistic chance to give yourself an edge to take home a big pay check. In order to do that in Daily Fantasy Football, you have to avoid the players you cannot take as they will destroy your team.
DIVISION ROUND BUSTS OF THE WEEK
BEN ROETHLISBERGER @ DEN
While Big Ben is more than expected to play this week despite having a bad shoulder, it does not mean you should play him on your Fantasy Team. Playing in Denver in a Playoff atmosphere is going to be tough. Antonio Brown will likely be out, and the Broncos Pass Rush will be playing with too much of a fire to ignore. One hit to Big Ben’s shoulder and he is out of the game.
MARSHAWN LYNCH @ CAR
While BEAST MODE is expected back, this is easily the worst matchup he could ask for. The chances of Marshawn busting out Huge runs left and right against the Top run Defense in the NFC is not likely at all. The Seahawks have been really strong leaning on Russell Wilson and the passing game, it has taken them this far, and they are only looking to go further in the Playoffs with it.
EDDIE LACY @ ARI
While Lacy was able to score a Touchdown last week in the closing minutes, this is a matchup that has more problems than solutions. The Cardinals Run D has been strong all year and if the Packers fall behind to the Cardinals, we will see a lot of James Starks. Lacy is a bruiser and is best fit for a game where the Packers should dominate from start to finish, this is not one of those games.
MARTAVIS BRYANT @ DEN
While you may be tempted to take Martavis Bryant since Antonio Brown is likely out. There is a strong chance that Bryant will be double teamed all game, as well as having Chris Harris Jr. banging Bryant all game long. If Big Ben does not last the entire game, than Martavis Byrant will do nothing. Either way, it is not going to be an easy game for Bryant to get his fantasy numbers.
TED GINN JR. vs. SEA
Ginn Jr. is essentially a power ball play. The Seahawks Secondary is too talented and the chances of Ginn having a strong game is not likely at all. Cam Newton is going to have to be very creative if the Panthers want to win, Ginn Jr. is too hit or miss to play in Daily Fantasy.
JEREMY MACLIN @ NE
While Maclin is likely going to play with a high ankle sprain, he will not be even close to a shad of the player we expect him to be. I would not play Jeremy Maclin this week as the Patriots will likely dominate the Chiefs from start to finish leaving Maclin on the sidelines when the game is out of hand.
TRAVIS KELCE @ NE
There are only 3 Tight Ends to consider this week realistically. While many will go with Gronk, that leaves you with Kelce or Greg Olsen. At the end of the day, Greg Olsen will have to expose Seattle’s Secondary in the middle of the field for Cam to really move the ball with confidence. With Kelce there are a lot of factors going against him, one of them being the fact that the Chiefs will have a tough time doing anything against the Patriots Defense. There will likely be a lot of Daily Fantasy Players rolling with Kelce this week after his breakout game last week, but lightning does not usually strike twice in this situation.
