Of the NFL Wild Card Weekend games, the Sunday slate features the most accomplished quarterbacks. Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and Patrick Mahomes are all in action and they've combined for 10 Super Bowl championships across 15 appearances in The Big Game. They are all proven postseason performers, but which will give you the best return on investment in Sunday's NFL DFS lineups?

While Roethlisberger's numbers don't compare to Brady or Mahomes, you also can't forget what Big Ben did the last time he was under center in the playoffs. Despite a loss, he threw for 501 yards and four TDs on last year's Wild Card Weekend. Could Roethlisberger rise to the top of the NFL DFS player pool again in what could be his final NFL game? Before making your NFL DFS picks for Sunday and beyond, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1 percent in more than a dozen other tournaments last season.

He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best NFL DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to Sunday's Wild Card round matchups and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks for Wild Card Sunday

One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Sunday's action is Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb at $6,300 on DraftKings and $7,300 on FanDuel. The second-year wideout leapfrogged Amari Cooper as WR1 in Dallas as he led the Cowboys in both receptions (79) and receiving yards (1,102) this year. Being his team's No. 1 receiver will serve Lamb well considering the 49ers' struggles against top wideouts.

In each of the last six weeks of the regular season, San Francisco allowed the opposing No. 1 receiver to score a touchdown. Those six receivers also averaged 94.1 receiving yards against San Fran. The Cowboys and Niners didn't play this year but they met up last year and Lamb had a 5-85-0 stat line, while also scoring on a kick return. He'll want to put on a show in his first playoff game and you can see why McClure is high on Lamb for Sunday.

Another part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy includes rostering Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill ($7,300 on DraftKings and $8,000 on FanDuel). Hill (heel) was limited in Week 18 but he's averaged 115 receiving yards over his last four postseason games. He also has 61 career postseason receptions which is second-most among active receivers, trailing only Davante Adams' 63.

Hill's production dipped late in the season due to that heel injury and also due to him battling COVID before Week 16. But he was his typical elite self before that and that's the version we should expect to see on Sunday. Hill finished seventh among WRs in Fantasy points and gets to take on a vulnerable Steelers defense that was already picked apart by Chiefs WRs three weeks ago. In Week 16, Kansas City wideouts combined for three TDs vs. the Steelers, so Hill has a great chance of hitting paydirt on Sunday.

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Sunday. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
