The Eagles, Buccaneers, 49ers, Cowboys, Steelers and Chiefs have plenty of fantasy superstars, and in the latest contest with more than two teams playing on the same day, we’re chasing the top spot in DraftKings tournaments on Sundays only. Our roster picks feature a chalky stack that will lay the foundation for our roster, but we’ll need to get further down the trading bin to differentiate our picks for DFS tournaments.
Before we break down our picks, here are the most notable scoring rules for DraftKings contests:,, for, and.
Sunday-Only Wild Card DraftKings Picks: Eagles vs. Buccaneers; 49ers vs. Cowboys; steelers vs bosses
$ 50,000 budget
The classic Brady-WR-TE stack is the way to go in tough times here. To get to the top spot in tournaments, you need to have the right foundation, so while Brady and his friends will be confused, we’ll pick the best playoff quarterback to ever see the game when it matters most. He’s as close to getting the 300-yard passing bonus as you can get.
We’re not too excited about Harris in FanDuel, but in DraftKings PPR scoring, he can do it with sheer volume. If he adds a bunch of yards and a touchdown or two, great, but there’s also a chance he’ll have 10-plus receptions and go nuclear without it.
Mitchell is set to face one of the best front sevens in the league, but Mitchell’s touchdown lead on one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL makes him attractive at this spot. He has become the unquestioned workhorse in San Francisco and has shown flashes of positive reception in a few games this year. We hope that the use of Deebo Samuel will keep some people away from Mitchell.
Options are getting limited in Tampa Bay without Chris Godwin (LCA), Cyril Grayson (hamstring) and Antonio Brown, so let’s save some time, grab some chalk and take Brady’s No. 1 WR. He can go for 100 yards and two touchdowns in any matchup and could start to see the most target volume he’s gotten since Brady came to town.
Tyreek Hill (heel) was limited last week, and Hardman capitalized on his instant part, making eight catches for 103 yards. If Hill is limited at all, Hardman could have another good start in a similar role. If Hill is ready, we’re still on Hardman as a boom or bust option. Remember, he can get you the 100-yard bonus with just two or three receptions.
WR Cedrick Wilson, Cowboys vs. 49ers ($4,500)
Wilson has taken his opportunities when they come, having produced four games of at least 18.7 DK points this year, and against a generally weak secondary, he could produce another big game. He’s still asleep thanks to sharing an offense with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Dalton Schultz, so we’re letting him go on the cheap.
The Eagles present the second-best matchup for TE in DK, so why not take the best tight end in NFL playoff history as part of a Brady stack? That’s really all that went into this decision.
Our lineup obviously assumes the Buccaneers will crush the Eagles, but Scott should have a lot of receiving work against the Bucs. Tampa has allowed the second-most receptions to RBs this season, and with their strong front seven taking down Jalen Hurts, Scott will serve as their safety valve.
The Eagles’ offense looks potent when it can run the ball, but long story short, we don’t expect that to happen here with Vita Vea, Devin White, Lavonte Davis and company crashing into the Eagles’ offensive line. When you push Jalen Hurts into a pass-only situation, it’s usually not a pretty sight.
