We’re into the Conference Championship Round of the 2018 NFL season, and now it’s time to identify our top fantasy football bargains for DFS players this week.
Finding bargains and values in DFS is the key to any winning roster, both in cash games and tournaments. Our goal today is to find you the best bargains for your cash games and tournaments. We will specify what games to use each bargain in and how to capitalize on them.
Bargain plays are the lifeblood of any DFS team. This is especially true now that we’ve entered the NFL playoffs portion of the DFS season. Bargains are much harder to come by now and finding the right one could be the difference in winning and losing this weekend.
If not Patrick Mahomes, we advise going for the cheapest option on the slate in Goff. What you’ll get in this package is a quarterback inside a dome who threw for 391 yards passing and three touchdowns when he played in New Orleans this regular season. You’ll also get a quarterback matched up against a defense that allowed the fourth-most points to quarterbacks in 2018.
Last week, we advised to play both White and Michel in our bargains column and it worked out. We’re going back to that in the Conference Championship week. Last weekend, we advised this based on several factors, including the projected gamescript. This week, it’s all about the matchup and their price point. For White, he matches up against a Chiefs defense that doesn’t have a linebacker who can eliminate him as an extension of the run game via the short passing game.
