  • Ben Roethlisberger threw a career-high five interceptions against the Jaguars in Week 5. Will he get redemption?
  • How will Derrick Henry follow up his 191-yard performance during Wild Card Weekend?
  • Should you trust Saints players against a Viking defense that allowed the fewest yards and points in 2017?

 

Last week, we put together a pretty successful daily fantasy football lineup for Wild Card Weekend, aside from the one player (whom I felt confident enough about to feature in the headline). Serves me right for putting my faith in Blake Bortles.

With four more games on tap for the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs, I have once again crafted my best daily fantasy lineup (see the video, below) and full positional rankings for this weekend’s action.
