The overall game for the Patriots-Bills game is set at just 42.5, so it may not be the most exciting competition of the first round of the playoffs, but if we are creative, we can find enough value to create an adequate DFS line-up. These teams are playing for the third time, but we can’t just believe everything we’ve seen in the first two games. However, we can take some aspects of each team’s strengths and weaknesses and create our DraftKings Showdown based on these factors. Obviously, playoff headlines lead tons of precious stars of daily fantasy football, so even here it is crucial to avoid as much chalk as possible without sacrificing too much value.
Here are the important settings for single-draft DraftKings games: That’s right full point PPR, and they are three-point bonuses for 300 yards, 100 rushing yards, a 100 receiving yards. Selecting a captain costs 1.5 times the player’s original prize, but his total points also multiply by 1.5.

DraftKings Showdown Tips: Patriots vs. Bills
With a budget of $ 50,000, you need at least one player from each team.
Captain: (1.5x salary, 1.5x points): WR Stefon Diggs, Bills (15,900 $)
The last time we saw Diggs’ match with the Patriots, he scored 21.5 points for DK and silenced New England fans. Although the game is careless, it is the most consistent producer and its goals remain stable. Hopefully, a low score will discourage some people from choosing them as “captain.”
FLEX: QB Josh Allen, bills ($ 12,800)
Allen will be one of the best games of the weekend, but without him we can’t see the way to No. 1 in this tournament. He can do it even in ugly conditions thanks to his hurried movement and he could be the best shooter here. However, due to his price and chalk level, it is difficult to build him on “Captain”, but if he continues to target Diggs, we are fine.
FLEX: TE Hunter Henry, Patriots ($ 6,200)
Henry is a touchdown-or-bust option, but of all the Patriots catchers, he probably has the highest advantage. Yes, maybe a guy like Jakobi Meyers has a safer floor, but landing up gives Henry an increase in DFS. Ultimately, opportunities in the red zones may be rare, but Mac Jones should focus on him in his safety blanket at key moments in his post-season debut.
FLEX: WR Gabriel Davis, bills ($ 4,400)
Although Emmanuel Sanders (knee) plays, we are on Davis because of his explosive role. In fact, Sanders ‘acting would keep Davis’ ownership low, so we’re all in it. In this defensive battle, AFC East will find it difficult to maintain its propulsion, so blows with deep shots will give Buffalo an edge. This selection is completed by the Allen-Diggs-Davis explosives magazine.
FLEX: RB Rhamondre Stevenson, Patriots ($ 5,000)
Stevenson is half the price of Damien Harris with about the same advantage (and lower ownership), and while Buffalo’s defense is booming, many quarterbacks have started in the match. This is DFS, so we risk Stevenson getting his usual workload and getting opportunities close to the goal line.
FLEX: D / ST Accounts ($ 4,800)
Newcomer QB in his first start in the playoffs on the road against one of the elite NFL defenses? We like the chances of a few forced turns and maybe a defensive TD. If Bills ‘attack can put points on the board and force Mac Jones to be a big player, there is a risk of mistakes and Bills’ D / ST is also the best scorer in this showdown.
