Wild Card daily fantasy football picks: Stacks to consider
Season-long fantasy football feels like a distant memory, but the good news is that you don’t have to stop playing fantasy football just yet.
Some fantasy junkies like to set up redraft fantasy football leagues for the playoffs that last throughout the entire postseason. If that’s what you like, Jeff Ratcliffe has you covered on strategy for those leagues.
However, some fantasy footballers want the instant gratitude that only comes with daily fantasy. Today, we’re going to break down our favorite stacks that you can use in tournaments this weekend for the eight NFL teams in play.
Andrew Luck, QB; T.Y. Hilton, WR; Eric Ebron, TE
The most glaring quarterback value on this slate is Luck despite the fact that he’s the second-most expensive at his position. The Texans’ pass rush has been a revelation this season with J.J. Watt back, but they have also allowed the 14th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. In two games against Houston this season, Luck threw for 863 passing yards with six touchdowns and one interception. We expect more of the same and that’s why we’re stacking the two skill position players who drew the most targets in Week 17, as has been in the case for the majority of the season. According to our WR/CB matchup chart, Hilton has the third-best individual matchup this week — we’ll take him even if he’s less than 100% healthy.
