Happy Conference Championship week! One day, two games, four great teams. Hide yo kids, hide yo wife: It’s time to hunker down and win some money.

What follows are my top-10 thoughts on this weekend’s main DraftKings slate. Be sure to check out PFF’s DFS landing page for specific showdown and single-day slate information. Additionally, the DFS optimizer allows subscribers to build their own lineups, and you can see ownership projections to get a better feel for what the public might have up their collective sleeves.

A wise man once said, “Winners focus on winning; losers focus on winners.” Let’s get after it.

1. Keep buying Playoff Lenny

Ronald Jones (quad) continues to try and play through the pain, but it’s been abundantly clear he’s functioning at less than 100%. This hasn’t stopped the Buccaneers from feeding him 25 combined carries over the past two weeks; just realize the third-year back is seemingly at high risk of re-aggravation or even being a pregame scratch.

Enter Leonard Fournette, who has dominated usage over the past two weeks:

  • Wild Card: 19-93-1 rushing, 4-39-0 receiving, 85% snaps
  • Divisional Round: 17-63-0 rushing, 5-44-1 receiving, 68% snaps

RoJo is a perfectly fine contrarian tournament option, but I want whatever anyone who is projecting him for more touches than Fournette is smoking.
