NFL DFS QB Recommendations Divisional Round

By Danny Moreno - 5 years ago in News Updates, NFL News

Choosing a quarterback for your daily fantasy team is going to be a little challenging this week. Not because you only have eight guys to choose from, but because you have a variety of options. You can go the expensive route and take Patrick Mahomes, or you can save some money and take a chance on Nick Foles or Philip Rivers.

It is not an easy call this week.

How about some DFS QB Recommendations?

It all depends on what sort of strategy you want to use when setting your daily fantasy roster. Do you want to go with the best but pay the price it will take to start him? Or would you rather save some salary cap space for a stud player at another position?

Whatever your strategy is, the following players are options everyone should consider:

•    Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles: The two interceptions last week hurt his value, but otherwise he had a good day against one of the best defenses in the league. With the Saints being one of the best run defenses in the league, the Eagles will need Foles to throw early and often if they want to win.
•    Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts: Luck wasn’t fantastic for daily fantasy players last week, but when your run game is gashing someone as bad as there’s was—you have to go with it. The Chiefs are going to score points, and their defense is terrible. Luck is going to need to sling the ball around for the Colts to keep up.
•    Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints: he hasn’t had a truly good fantasy week since Atlanta, but if Mitchell Trubisky can torch the Eagles for 300+ so can Brees.
•    Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers: Rivers comes with a little more risk than the others because you can never tell when the ‘playoff’ Patriots are going to show up. Will they be the same defense that ended the regular season ranked 22nd against the pass? Or will they be the group that locks down and gets the job done now that it is playoff time? If it is the former, Rivers is a great choice. If it is the latter, he’s cheap, and you can probably afford Todd Gurley or Ezekiel Elliot.


Best Bet?

Patrick Mahomes has been the man all year, but the Colts defense has been playing exceptional football this season. Do you really want to roll the dice? Tom Brady has had a disappointing fantasy year and can you really trust Dak Prescott to deliver (no).

Go with Nick Foles. The Saints are going to shut down whatever run game the Eagles attempt to have, forcing Nick Foles to save the day—and he will. If you just don’t like the Eagles, then roll with Luck.
