Fantasy Football: Draft Kings lineup for 2018 divisional playoff round

We’ve picked winners in low buy-in tournaments each of the last two weeks. Let’s see if we can go for the hat trick in the divisional round of the 2018 NFL playoffs.

Here’s who we are rolling with for Saturday and Sunday’s games on Draft Kings.

Let’s take a brief look at our QB options for this round. . . Big Ben vs. Jaguars? Nah. Blake Bortles vs. anyone? No sir. Marcus Mariota vs. Patriots? LOL. Drew Brees vs. Vikings? No thanks. Nick Foles vs. Falcons? Nope. Case Keenum vs. Saints? Eh.

Who else are you gonna go with but Matty Ice in his hometown of Philadelphia? The Eagles defense is brutal against the run but their secondary can (and will) be exploited.

Yes, the pricetag stings on this one, but there’s really no other viable pick if you’re going to guarantee points at running back this week. Jacksonville’s defense ranked No. 23 against RBs in 2017, too.

As long as you’re splurging at running back, make sure to pick up Lewis, who is on a roll coming into this matchup with Tennessee. He’s scored five touchdowns from scrimmage over his last three games.

We’d honestly rather roll with Julio Jones, but you have to find savings somewhere. Also, don’t be shocked if the Eagles bracket Jones up considering their issues at cornerback.

More of the same logic here, plus Gabriel has the jets to take the top off against some of Philly’s backup corners.

It’s always something of a guessing game as to who will see the most targets from Tom Brady outside of the next guy on this list. Amendola is as good a guess as any, though.

As far as tight ends go this week, there’s Gronk, then about a 15,000-mile drop, then the rest of the field.

At the flex we’re doubling down on the Steelers run game. Bell will eventually have to rest, especially if they build up a big lead as anticipated.

After watching the calamity that was the Bills vs. Jaguars game last week, can you envision any scenario wherein Blake Bortles does not have a really, really long day against Pittsburgh?
