FF Astronauts DFS Divisional Weekend


Welcome to the FF_Astronauts weekly DFS column.


Nathan McGuire, Alex Edwards and @FF_Spotlight will cover their favorite captain of all four games.


Let's take a look at the captains for the NFL Playoffs Divisional Weekend.


Travis Kelce, Kansas City, $15,900


There aren't many Tight Ends you would want to use as a Captain but Travis Kelce is the exception, especially against the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland has struggled to contain Tight Ends all year, ranking 30th against them according to DraftKings. Kelce has averaged 22.1 points per game on DraftKings. Him scoring more than that seems like a high possibility. I even think he could come out of this weekend as the highest-scoring player.

Cam Akers, Los Angeles, $15,000


The Rams know they cannot keep up with Green Bay; few teams can. However, they do excel in ball control. Anticipate McVey to try to win the time of possession battle in a big way this weekend. The Packers defense has struggled against the run all year long, and Akers may come with a modest captain usage percentage. That is the name of this game: pick a high scorer at an appropriate price.


Nathan McGuire, @n_mcguire95


Tyreek Hill, Kansas City, $15,600


87 receptions, 1276 yards, 17 TDs for 22.5 fantasy points per week. Those stats from Hill's 16 games this year lay a good baseline for his expected performance in the divisional weekend. He'll need 46.8 points (with 1.5x points) to meet his salary which would require him to score 31.2 points. Of all the players in this weekend, the player with the biggest potential is Hill. He scored 60.9 DraftKings in week 12. The Browns had major issues in the passing game last week against Big Ben and JuJu last week. Look for Hill to perform this weekend.
