Fanduel Wildcard! The Dolphins made the playoffs so we get another slate of games with Dolphins players in it on Fanduel! Miami is the biggest underdog of the five wildcard games but that doesn’t mean they won’t have fantasy value. Let’s look at some Dolphins players at every position as well as other top plays for the Wildcard weekend.
Quarterbacks for Fanduel Wildcard Weekend
Skylar Thompson is the cheapest quarterback on Fanduel at just $6,200. He has yet to score more than eight Fanduel points in a game this season, but he will get another chance this week. Buffalo has a strong defense and Skylar will have his work cut out for him. Still, he makes a good play as he will likely be low-owned and can save you a ton of salary. With Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle to throw to he could always get helped out by a long catch and run touchdown to provide him some points.
For those playing the Sunday main slate with the Dolphins in it, Daniel Jones could make a good play. He has been one of the most dangerous runners at quarterback this season and his price is just $7,400, the third lowest on the day. Across all five games Joe Burrow seems a bit underpriced at $8,000, especially when you are comparing him to Josh Allen at $9,200. Fanduel Wildcard weekend action should be fun.
Jeff Wilson Jr. makes one of the best plays on Sunday and for all of the Fanduel Wildcard games at $6,000 with Raheem Mostert out. This is some great value for a player who is priced at that amount due to his split workload in the past handful of games. He can catch the ball and might see the most carries he has in quite some time.
Devin Singletary against the Dolphins on Sunday should be another good option. He is just $6,200 and is the lead back for Buffalo. It’s a good situation for him and they may lean on him more as a trusted veteran in the playoffs than James Cook. Elijah Mitchell is back for the 49ers and he had a great comeback game last week with 55 yards and two touchdowns. At $5,500 he makes for a great value play across all the Fanduel Wildcard games.
Wide Receivers for Fanduel Wildcard
Tyreek Hill hasn’t meshed well with Skylar Thompson or Teddy Bridgewater so far. In his last three games he has yet to eclipse four catches and hasn’t scored a touchdown. Hill’s price is down to $8,500 and he could be in line for a breakout if they try to force him the ball, which they should. Jaylen Waddle has been in a similar situation to Hill, although he is a lot cheaper. Look for Waddle to be more involved as well.
The big story at wide receiver has been the injury to Mike Williams for the Chargers. Some of the best value this weekend will come from there with Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter filling his void. On Sunday look at K.J. Osborn who has been a big part of Minnesota’s offense recently. He has a generous price tag at $6,100 after a game with seven catches and a touchdown followed by a 117-yard game.
We thought Mike Gesicki might get more involved with Skylar Thompson starting at quarterback last week. Rookies love to go to their tight ends and Gesicki was targeted six times and caught four balls for 46 yards. At $4,900 he doesn’t seem like the worst play anymore. Gesicki may even be a good play on the Sunday slate. More Fanduel Wildcard TE picks are below.
On the Sunday main slate it will be hard to not play T.J. Hockenson though even at $7,000. He has the ability to have 100-yard games with double-digit catches and multiple touchdowns. If he has one of those games it will be nearly impossible to win without him. Evan Engram is the other enticing option this weekend at just $5,700.
Miami is not expected to hold Buffalo’s offense down. They are the cheapest defense for the entire weekend. At $3,200 you don’t even save that much salary either. Miami’s defense will be hard to trust against the Bills.
Across all the Wildcard games it is tough to get away from the 49ers. They play Seattle who has an average offense but San Francisco has been dominant recently defensively. Aside from them, the Giants make a good cheaper play for Sunday. Buffalo is also an option although it would mean that you would be playing a team against Miami. Now, go enjoy some Fandul Wildcard action!
