The Eagles and Buccaneers kick off the wild card action Sunday in a Week 6 rematch. We’re taking a little risk without Tom Brady on our FanDuel one-game roster, but we have a method to combat his madness. GPP tournaments – especially in the knockouts – are not about playing it “safely”, but building a DFS roster that can take the top spot if game conditions play out in a certain way. certain way. All of our selections are correlated, so we are happy to take the gamble.
Here are the main scoring settings for FanDuel’s single game competitions: The total score for “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, but he doesn’t cost him any extra money like “Captain” in competitions the DraftKings Showdown exam. FanDuel’s default score is Half point PPR and TDs pass four points, and no bonuses for 100/300 yard matches like on DraftKings.
OTHER FD ONLY GAME: How to win a FanDuel one game contest
FanDuel One-Game DFS Selection: Eagles vs. Buccaneers
Budget $50,000, need at least one player from each team.
MVP: (1.5 times points): QB Jalen Hurts, Eagles ($16,000)
Hurts is a very tough game in most single-game competition, but with Tom Brady, Mike Evans, Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Rob Gronkowski on the other side, he’s perfectly viable in the MVP seat of we. We know he can have minimal passing success and pay off in DFS, especially since FanDuel doesn’t award bonus points for 300-yard passes. In fact, the Hurts still scored 26 FD points against Tampa earlier in the season with just 115 yards. He’s the elite rush QB, and since Tampa Bay struggles to stop the pass, he can have huge numbers on the ground and in the air.
FLEX: RB Boston Scott, Eagles ($11,500)
We’ve reviewed Jordan Howard here, but yards from straight deals will be scarce here compared to an elite Tampa number seven front. However, Tampa allowed the second most RBs (117) and the fifth most RBs (781). Miles Sanders is expected to compete, but he has injured his knee, ankle and hand this year, so the job of taking over will likely be left to Scott. This is a classic QB-RB arrangement that can overcome the weakness of the Bucs defense.
FLEX: WR Mike Evans, Buccaneers ($14,500)
With Antonio Brown and Chris Godwin (knees) out of the picture, it’s time for the “Mike Evans Show” in the knockout stages and he’s as close to an encounter as possible. He doesn’t necessarily get through tons against a stingy pass defense, but his acumen in the red area makes him a strong playmaker in FD.
FLEX: WR Breshad Perriman, Buccaneers ($7,500)
Perriman has an explosive record that is perfect for GPP leagues, and since he saw six season-high goals in Week 18, he could become more of a factor here. He has many of the same advantages as Cyril Grayson Jr., but he’s $2,500 cheaper and will be less chalky in all likelihood.
FLEX: WR DeVonta Smith, Eagles ($10,500)
Smith had a rather disappointing end to his rookie season, so we’re happy to chase his comeback with an unusually lower percentage of possession. This aligns with our QB-RB-WR stack, and again, we’re counting on a lower-scoring match for this roster to hit the ground running, so he won’t need to. more volume to pay off. You can move a few things around and buy TE Dallas Goedert ($11,000) here, if you’re more confident in his prospects.
