The Eagles, Buccaneers, 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers and Chiefs have a lot of fantastic superstars and in the last match with more than two teams playing on the same day we race for first place in Sunday’s DraftKings tournaments. Our lineup selections include a chalk stack that will lay the groundwork for our lineup, but we’ll have to reach even lower in the convenient basket to differentiate our DFS tournament selections.
Before we break down our tips, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings competitions: Full point PPR, four-point passing TD, three-point premiums for 100 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, a 300 yards.
DraftKings selections for Sunday only: Eagles vs. Buccaneers; 49ers Cowboys; Steelers Vs. Chiefs
$ 50,000 budget
QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 7,200)
The classic Brady-WR-TE stack is the way to go in times of crisis. You have to have the right foundations to get to the top of the tournaments, so even if Brady and friends are chalking, we take the best playoff quarterback the game has ever seen when it matters most. He’s close enough to get a 300-yard bonus.
RB Najee Harris, Steelers @ Chiefs ($ 6,600)
We’re not much for Harris at FanDuel, but in PPR scoring DraftKings, he can do it with net volume. When he adds a lot of yards and a touchdown or two – great, but there’s also a chance he’ll have more than 10 receptions and be nuclear without it.
RB Elijah Mitchell, 49ers @ Cowboys ($ 5,700)
Mitchell is ready to face one of the top seven in the league, but Mitchell’s touchdown on one of the best rush attacks in the NFL makes him attractive at this point. He became an undisputed hard worker in San Francisco and showed flashes of better reception in several games this year. We hope that using Deebo Samuel will keep some people out of Mitchell.
WR Mike Evans, Buccaneers vs. Eagles ($ 7,000)
The options in Tampa Bay without Chris Godwin (ACL), Cyril Grayson (hamstrings) and Antonio Brown are limited, so we save some time, take the chalk off and take Brady’s No. 1 WR. He can go for 100 yards and two touchdowns in any match and could start seeing the largest target volume he has ever received since Brady came to town.
WR Mecole Hardman, Chiefs Steelers ($ 4,100)
Tyreek Hill (heel) was capped last week and Hardman used his snap share to make eight catches for 103 yards. If Hill is limited at all, Hardman could have another nice climb in a similar role. When Hill is full, we’re still on Hardman as a boom-or-bust variant. Remember, you can get a bonus of 100 yards for just two or three receptions.
WR Cedrick Wilson, Cowboys Vs. 49ers ($ 4,500)
Wilson took his opportunity when they came, as he produced four games this year with at least 18.7 DK points and could produce another big game against a generally weak secondary. He’s still asleep by sharing a crime with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Dalton Schultz, so we’ll throw him out for a low price.
Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers vs. TE Eagles ($ 6,400)
The Eagles are the second-best game for TEs on DK, so why not win the biggest tight end in NFL history as part of Brady’s stack? That is, in fact, all that was part of this decision.
FLEX (RB) Boston Scott, Eagles @ Buccaneers ($ 4,500)
Of course, our team assumes that the Buccaneers will crush the Eagles, but Scott should have a lot of work against the Bucs. Tampa has allowed the second highest number of RB receptions this season, and thanks to a strong top seven that has fallen on Jalen Hurts, Scott will serve as his safety valve.
DEF Tampa Bay Buccaneers Eagles (3,400 USD)
The Eagles offensive looks powerful when it can run the ball, but simply put, we don’t expect it to happen here when Vita Vea, Devin White, Lavonte Davis et al. When you push Jalen Hurts into a handover situation, it’s usually not a pretty sight.
