Yahoo NFL Expert Picks: Divisional Round
Each NFL week, our daily fantasy sports experts will provide their top plays for Yahoo. These picks will help you find the best values and top overall plays to build a foundation for all types of contests. Our top-ranked experts will also provide the reasons for their picks, so you can make informed decisions when setting your lineups.
Patrick Mahomes vs. Indianapolis Colts $39
Mahomes is the most expensive player on the entrie slate but should be worth it in any format you play this weekend. The Colts have been “good” on pass defense in recent months but outside of facing Watson twice, they haven’t faced a good QB with a healthy offense since October 4th. The Colts aren’t going to be able to come close to stopping the Chiefs offense and I also think the Colts offense will be able to put up points as well, creating a shootout and a huge fantasy day for Mahomes.
Nick Foles at New Orleans Saints $27
Foles is going to be chucking in this game out of necessity and after throwing 40 times in a close defensive game last week in Chicago we can easily see him throw the ball 40+ times again in the Superdome. Game script should drive passing volume as well and with a variety of good targets to throw to the Eagles offense is a very sneaky choice for me this week to outperform expectations. The Saints did allow the Steelers to put up points in Week 16 and with a sneakily good set of skill position players surrounding Foles, I like the Eagles to do the same.
