Stars like Patrick Mahomes, Nick Chubb and Tom Brady are in the NFL DFS player pool for Sunday. With just two games to choose from, you'll want to identify the players who present the best value before entering your NFL DFS lineups on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. Then, you'll be able to afford more expensive, less risky NFL DFS picks like Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
Which high-end players can you turn to as building blocks for your NFL DFS stacks? And which undervalued players can give you the salary cap flexibility needed to create a winning roster? Before making any NFL DFS picks for Sunday's Divisional Round games, be sure to see the latest NFL DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.
McClure crushed his NFL DFS picks in 2019, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments. He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who followed him saw some huge returns.
In Wild Card Weekend, McClure had Bills quarterback Josh Allen as one of his top NFL DFS picks for both FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Allen passed for 324 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for 54 yards and another score, returning over 35 Fantasy points on both sites! Anybody who had him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.
Top NFL DFS picks for Sunday's 2021 Divisional Round
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Sunday's Divisional Round games is Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce at $7,800 on DraftKings and $8,500 on FanDuel. He was second in the NFL with 1,416 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns, the top tight end in the league in both statistical categories.
Kelce is as fresh as he can get, having rested both Week 17 against the Chargers and during the Chiefs' first-round playoff bye. Kelce is one of the top NFL DFS picks every week, but fresh legs, playoff urgency and a potentially weakened Browns secondary make him even stronger on Sunday.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry at $5,600 on DraftKings and $6,900 on FanDuel. Landry was a major factor in Cleveland's first playoff victory since 1994, catching five passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in an upset victory over the Steelers.
Landry's 92 receiving yards were his second-most this season, and now he'll look to keep that momentum going against Kansas City. The Chiefs have been vulnerable against the pass this season. In fact, the Chiefs have given up 100-yard receiving performances in back-to-back games. Landry has found the end zone in four of his last six outings, which means he can return plenty of value for your NFL DFS lineups. Lock him in as one of the top NFL DFS picks on Sunday and look for a big return against the Chiefs.
