Super Wild Card Saturday Underdog Fantasy Pick ‘Em Flowchart
The core plays are going to be my favorite plays this week as your base foundation to start your pick-em entry to maximize. This week, there are two projections I love to get the Underdog Fantasy Pick Em entry started.
Travis Kelce Higher Than 5.5 Receptions
The weather in the matchup between the Dolphins and Chiefs is supposed to see freezing temperatures in Kansas City. Despite the struggles over the last month for Kelce I am expecting the tight end to show up when the lights are the brightest.
The Chiefs offense has struggled with wide receivers dropping passes, but when it comes down to it, Mahomes will find his reliable target in this game.
Kelce has played in 18 career playoff games and has at least six receptions in 14 of those games. I love the higher on this Underdog Fantasy Pick ‘Em entry for Super Wild Card Weekend.
Isiah Pacheco Higher Than 19.5 Receiving Yards
The Dolphins have been one of the best rush defenses in the league this season. However, one area they have struggled in is defending running back in the passing game. Since Week 12, the Dolphins are allowing 46 receiving yards to the running back position which is the fourth most in that span.
Pacheco has seen at least four targets in his last four games. Lastly, four running backs have exceeded this projection since Week 12 against the Dolphins. I love the higher on this Underdog Fantasy Pick ‘Em entry for Super Wild Card Weekend.
David Njoku Higher Than 5.5 Receptions
Since Joe Flacco took over as the starting quarterback for the Browns, Njoku has become a primary target. In fact, over the last four weeks of the regular season, Njoku saw at least eight targets and had at least six receptions in all four games. Further, the Texans are allowing the second most receptions to the tight end position this season.
C.J Stroud Higher Than 33.5 Pass Attempts
C.J. Stroud has put together one of the best rookie seasons in recent history, and I believe the Texans’ key to victory will be on the shoulders of Stroud. Stroud did not play in the Week 16 matchup versus the Browns.
However, since Week 13, five of the six quarterbacks have gone higher than this projection. Stroud at home this season is averaging 34.8 attempts per game.
Lastly, the Browns’ defense has been one of the best this season against the run. Opposing running backs are averaging only 83 rushing yards per game. I love the higher on this Underdog Fantasy Pick ‘Em entry for Super Wild Card Weekend.
Nico Collins Higher Than 75.5 Receiving Yards
There is no question Nico Collins has emerged as the #1 wide receiver for the Texans this season. Collins has gone higher than this projection in two straight games, including a 195 receiving-yard performance in a must-win game versus the Colts last week.
Despite struggling against the Browns in Week 16, Collins did not have Stroud under center in that game. I expect the targets to continue to be there for Collins in this playoff game. I love the higher on this projection for the first Underdog Fantasy Pick ‘Em entry.
Patrick Mahomes Higher Than 25.5 Rushing Yards
When it comes down to in the playoffs, Mahomes will utilize his rushing ability to gain yards. As I mentioned numerous times, the weather will play a significant factor in this game. Over the final three weeks of the regular season, all three quarterbacks the Dolphins faced went higher than this projection.
Lastly, Mahomes has gone higher than this projection in seven career playoff games. I love the higher on this Underdog Fantasy Pick ‘Em entry for Super Wild Card Weekend.
Tua Tagovailoa Lower Than 230.5 Passing Yards
As I mentioned above, the weather in Kansas City is going to be freezing temperatures. I expect the Dolphins to be run-heavy in this game against the Chiefs.
The Dolphins wide receivers, Waddle and Hill are also dealing with injuries. I keep talking about the weather in this game, but it will play a significant factor. This is also Tua’s first career NFL playoff game, so there may be a few jitters for him.
