A two-time champion in a hardcore keeper league, including some know-it-all media "experts," Adam Boedeker gives his fantasy expertise on a weekly basis.
Daily fantasy is a relatively new thing, and it's something we've never tinkered with here, but now seems like a pretty good time to start with the NFL playoffs in full swing. The numbers I'll use will be from FanDuel. I started the year with a small bankroll and I've gone through the entire season playing every week without having to put more money in, even though I'm now down to like $5.
So, can I make it last the rest of the playoffs? Here goes nothing:
QB: Carson Palmer ($8,900) vs. GB — Palmer on rest, at home, against the Packers? Yes please.
RB: Ronnie Hillman ($5,900) vs. PIT — This is a risk because of workload, but he should have a good day.
RB: David Johnson ($8,500) vs. GB — Did I mention I'm riding with the Cardinals this week?
WR: John Brown ($6,700) vs. GB — Told you.
WR: Martavis Bryant ($7,100) at DEN — Antonio Brown is most likely out, which could be good or bad for Bryant.
WR: Larry Fitzgerald ($7,900) vs. GB — Reliable, and oh yeah, he plays for the Cardinals against the Pack.
TE: Heath Miller ($5,400) at DEN — If Landry Jones plays instead of Big Ben, that could lead to a nice day for the security blanket/tight end.
K: Steven Hauschka ($4,700) at CAR — This game should be similar to Seattle's game against Minnesota, minus the tundra. That means lots of field goals.
DEF: Arizona ($4,800) vs. GB — At home, this defense is really, really tough.
So there you go. That's the roster I'm rolling with. If you haven't tried Daily Fantasy, now is a good time to give it a try.
