PRIZE PICKS: Divisional Round

Prize Picks is our new favorite way to play daily fantasy football! Out of the fantasy playoffs? No problem! Set a lineup or two in Prize Picks and you're back in the game! Entries are so simple, they can be made in less than 60 seconds. On PrizePicks, you simply select 2, 3, 4, or 5 players and predict if they will go over or under their fantasy projection.

Prize Picks Has a New Entry Option Called the 5 Pick Flex Play!

We've started to love playing the 5 pick flex plays & 3 pick power plays!!

Sign up for Prize Picks this week and you are entered to win a signed Diontae Johnson jersey and a spot in our HQ Dynasty League!

*If you have already signed up with code FantasyHQ - you are already entered!

We try to lay out a few Over/Unders that we feel good about for each slate, and encourage you to take our advice, but put your own twist on it! We aren't perfect and we can't see the future - our goal is merely to help you make the most informed entries you can.

**We recommend either playing a 3 or 5 player FLEX game**

Divisional Round Picks

*Reminder - points are in PPR format!

Nick Chubb vs KC - 14.5 points - OVER

The best way to beat Patrick Mahomes is to keep him on the sidelines. Kevin Stefanski and the Cleveland Browns know this, and they've also got the personnel to set up a run-based, ball-control gameplan. Chubb is the centerpiece of that effort and just dropped 24 fantasy points on a Steelers defense that's better against the run than the Chiefs are. Whether Cleveland can actually upset the defending champs or not, Chubb should get his numbers either way.

Devin Singletary vs BAL - 12.5 points - UNDER

Singletary's projections have been coming in closer to the 10 point mark, and it looks like it jumped up this week, as they are expecting an increased workload with Moss out. Honestly...Moss being out doesn't really impact things for me. Singletary hasn't been very good, and Baltimore can definitely shut down the run. Last week they held KING DERRICK HENRY to 18 carries for 40 yards! Smashing this under, and hoping Singletary doesn't get flukey touchdowns.

Jared Goff vs GB - 15 points - OVER

The risk with Goff is health, obviously - he wasn't supposed to play last week, and coach Sean McVay clearly limited his volume when injuries forced Goff into action. The Rams aren't going to have that luxury this week against the top-seeded Packers. But we also expect LA to move the ball on the ground, and that means red zone chances for Goff. Take advantage of an artificially low line here, and bank on a TD or two to get over.

Davante Adams vs LAR - 21 points - UNDER

Yes, Adams is probably the top WR in the league, and he's been over 21 points in 8 of 14 regular-season games...but this week he matches up vs. Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey has been the best shadow corner in the NFL this season, and he has continually shut down elite #1 WRs. I don't think he'll completely shut down Adams...but 21 is going to be a really tough line to hit with Ramsey shadowing.

Lower Confidence Picks We're Going to Mix Into Lineups...

Josh Allen vs BAL - 26 points - OVER

This line actually feels relatively high in a tough matchup. But we know Josh Allen's tendencies: if the Ravens bottle up the pass, Allen isn't afraid to play hero ball with some gutsy runs. Particularly in the red zone, Allen is a good bet to punch in a TD, which is exactly how QBs end up with a big fantasy day. This one feels like it could become a fireworks show between Allen and Lamar Jackson, which makes both of their 26-point lines tempting.

Baker Mayfield vs KC - 18.5 points - OVER

Kansas City has generally given up lots of fantasy points to opposing QBs, if only because they score so many points that opposing teams have to score to keep up. Mayfield's line is pretty modest at 18.5, and like Chubb, he put up more points (22.8) against a tougher Steelers D last week. Stick with the over here and bank on a TD pass to at least one of the Browns TEs against the 7th-easiest fantasy TE matchup across the regular season.

JK Dobbins vs BUF - 12.5 points - OVER

I'm going to stay on the Dobbins train this week. Dobbins has at least one touchdown in each of his last 7 games. His odds at finding the endzone in this contest are quite high, and that will give him a nice floor to reach that 12.5 line. We're expecting this to be a high scoring game, and I think it should be easy enough for Dobbins to find his way to 12.5. Obviously, there is always a risk of Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards being vultures...but I'll take my chances.

Cam Akers vs GB - 15 points - OVER

I can't believe I'm taking the bait...but here I am. For our last pick (with much lower confidence), we're going to throw Cam Akers over 15 into the mix. 15 is a high mark, but the Rams have shown they want their offense to revolve around Akers moving forward. He had 28 carries for 131 yards and a TD vs the Seahawks last week. Green Bay is weak against the run, but the issue is that they are good at getting out to a lead and forcing teams to throw. If Green Bay jumps out to a lead, then Akers will have a tough time finding 15 points. If the game stays close, and the Rams can stick to their gameplan, I think Akers could really go off! Maybe it's because I'm a Vikings fan, and I'm actively rooting for a Packers loss...but I think the Rams keep this one close.
