With the regular season in the books, DraftKings will turn to smaller slates to close out the year. Wildcard weekend includes a tightly priced player pool across the four games. In order to pay up for studs like Todd Gurley ($9,700) and Julio Jones ($8,000), people will need to get a little creative with lineup construction. With that said, here are some noteworthy plays for wildcard weekend.
Drew Brees (v Carolina) - $6,400
Priced as the third most expensive quarterback on the slate, Drew Brees finds himself in a bounce back spot after last week's 12.16-point dud. Brees draws a Carolina defense ranked dead last in passing yards allowed over the past four games. While Brees hasn't had his normal ceiling in 2017, Carolina's stoutness against the run creates a natural pass funnel. Brees is a strong option for cash games and GPPs this week.
