The PFF ultimate DFS guide for the Conference Championships
We’ve reached the end. The Conference Championship Round of the NFL playoffs mark the end of our regular daily fantasy playing season. (There is that awkward Pro Bowl/Super Bowl slate available on some slate — and yes, we’ll have advice for that — but it’s not anything like a conventional DFS slate.)
With a limited slate of games (two games, four teams), our key advice of the week is limited. Player stacks have been retired, as every DFS lineup has to include some sort of stack, and contrarian plays have gone by the wayside as well, with such a limited player pool. But our experts are still around with our best bets at locks, fades and bargains of the week. See quick-hit summaries of their advice below, and click through to see their full arguments. And then at the bottom, check out the rest of our week in DFS advice. Good luck in the Conference Championshops.
(Note: One of our strategy approaches is “players to avoid,” and in such a small slate, where nitpicking runs rampant, some of the players to avoid show up as players to use for other experts. It’s unavoidable in a small slate; disagreements happen. Read and decide your favorite argument.)
