DFS Tournament Game Breakdown 2020 Division Weekend
Josh Allen, BUF
Allen has been dominant all season and there is no reason to suggest that will end versus Baltimore. He has faced five top-10 defenses this year according to PFF. In those games, he has averaged 286.4 passing yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game. He has also added .8 scores per game versus top defenses.
Lamar Jackson, BAL
Jackson was dinged up in the middle of the year with a knee injury. He then got a short break while on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Following that break, he has averaged 12 carries for 94.3 yards and .8 touchdowns per game. He's also throwing an additional 1.8 passing touchdowns per game. In a game with a 50-point total where the Ravens are nearly field goal underdogs, Jackson and the Ravens should be forced into playing aggressively once again.
Nick Chubb, CLE
Chubb returned from IR in Week 10, Since then, he has posted 16.8 carries for 89.8 to go along with 1.9 receptions for 22.4 yards. He has scored at a pace of once per game over that span. As a massive underdog to the Chiefs, Chubb is unlikely to draw massive ownership on this slate. Despite the uphill battle against game-script he faces, the ownership (or lack thereof) makes him worth chasing.
Aaron Jones, GB
Much like Chubb, we're just looking for volume at low ownership with our running backs in the Divisional Round. In Week 17, despite Jones coming off a game where he was largely rested in favor of A.J. Dillon, who dominated the Titans, Jones saw 64.7% of the Packers' running back carries. He also drew all five of the Packers' RB targets.
Davante Adams, GB
Always play Adams...always. He has more games with multiple receiving touchdowns than games with no receiving touchdowns. He has also topped 100 yards in six of the ten Packers wins he has been able to finish. Green Bay is favored by a touchdown this week. Cash, tournament, whatever you're playing, keep jamming Adams.
Michael Thomas, NO
Thomas returned to the lineup last week and looked like his usual self last week. He saw seven targets and brought down five for 73 yards and a score. In the regular season, he led the league in air yards share, albeit on a limited sample of playing time. He gets the Bucs in a game with a 51.5 total this week.
Rob Gronkowski, TB
Outside of Travis Kelce, tight end is gross once again this week. With Thomas and Adams in this lineup, he's out of the picture. That leaves Gronk standing as the cheapest viable tight end. Since Week 3, Gronk has averaged 41.2 yards and .5 touchdowns per game.
