NFL DFS Recommendations Super Bowl LIII: Buyer Beware Edition
It is almost Super Bowl Sunday. That means it is nearly time to kick back and enjoy what should be one of the most exciting games of the NFL season. Both offenses are expected to play well which should mean great things for daily fantasy players.
But with games like this, it is worth recognizing who you should select (see the previous article) and who the buyer beware guys are. They are not necessarily guys you should avoid but guys you may want to think twice about before starting.
How about some DFS Recommendations?
With this being the final game of the season, it is safe to say that everyone wants to win. That means you can’t afford to make any mistakes in your lineup this week. That means recognizing that some guys you usually trust may not be as good as usual this week.
Before you start these guys, make sure you really want to:
• C.J. Anderson, running back, Los Angeles Rams: He has run well in his short time with the team, and the Rams have shown a willingness to make the focus of the run game if Gurley falters. But for the Super Bowl, you have to think they are going to lean on Gurley until they absolutely can’t. At that point, it will be too late for Anderson to become a viable fantasy option.
• Todd Gurley, running back, Los Angeles Rams: He was one of the most productive guys in football this season. But a knee injury slowed him down towards the end of the season. With Anderson running so well, Gurley seems to be in a bit of a platoon situation. The Rams say he is not hurt, but don’t be shocked if he has a minor procedure following the end of the season.
• Rob Gronkowski, tight end, New England Patriots: statistically, this has not been a great season for the Gronk. With how much the Patriots are running the ball, he seems to have embraced his role as a blocker. While that is great for Sony Michel’s daily fantasy value, it does nothing for his.
• Rex Burkhead, running back, New England Patriots: He is not worth starting unless he scores a couple of touchdowns. But he is not going to find it as easy against the Rams as it was against the Chiefs.
• Sony Michel, running back, New England Patriots: He has run well throughout the playoffs, but he is going to be facing a front that has held three of the best running backs in the NFL (Ezekiel Elliot, Alvin Kamara, and Mark Ingram) to less than 100 yards combined the last two weeks. Michel may still do well, but he could just as easily struggle.
It has been a long, wonderful season but just like every one before it and all that will come after, it has to come to an end. So, to close out the season, we just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone that has visited the site this season.
