We’re into the Divisional 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.

Nick Foles, QB, Philadelphia Eagles

Foles is the slam-dunk value play at the quarterback position on this slate; we will be assembling a majority of our cash game lineups with him as the focal point. Foles’ matchup comes against a Saints defense that allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks while finishing the 2018 season ranked No. 23 in pass coverage. He is also the least expensive starting quarterback on the slate.

Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams

Foles is the only quarterback on the slate cheaper than Goff. While we don’t buy into the matchup for Goff, the Rams quarterback has proven matchup-proof for long stretches over the past two seasons under head coach Sean McVay. Now, with two weeks to prepare, we’ll buy Goff as a massive favorite, at home, with two weeks to prepare for this matchup.
