Here are some key picks you should consider for this weekend’s FanDuel and DraftKings contests:
Case Keenum QB, Vikings (FD $7,600/DK $6,100)
Probably your safest play not named Tom Brady. He has the supportive ground game and only loses Stefon Diggs to the Marshon Lattimore shadow. The rest of his weapons are ready for action and should help him produce strong numbers.
Jerick McKinnon RB, Vikings (FD $6,500/DK $4,900)
Latavius Murray will see the early work, but just as we saw with Christian McCaffrey against the Saints last week, it is the pass-catching running backs who can do the most damage.
Willie Snead WR, Saints (FD $4,600/DK $3,000)
Looking to differentiate yourself from the rest of the tournament herd? Snead saw nearly 50 percent of the snaps over the past few weeks, and with Brandon Coleman out with a neck injury, Snead could be coming out of the slot a whole lot more.
Rob Gronkowski TE, Patriots (FD $8,500/DK $7,100)
To Gronk or not to Gronk? That is always the question. The Titans ranked 24th in the league in coverage against the tight end position, and Tom Brady is looking to air it out against Dick LeBeau’s stop-the-run-first defense. This play is the ultimate no-brainer!
