DFS NFL Quarterback Picks for Wildcard Weekend

Ben Rothlisberger DFS
19 December 2011: Quarterback (7) Ben Rothlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers passes the ball while being rushed by (91) Ray McDonald of the San Francisco 49ers during the first half of the 49ers 20-3 victory over the Steelers at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, CA.

You only start one quarterback so you better make it count. Quality and upside are important here while securing a solid floor. I know that sounds like a lot so let’s try and keep it simple. Look for a good matchup, a quarterback who has been performing well with a strong supporting cast, a defence that will be favorable to opposing signal-callers, and a game script that supports success. For the most part, the quarterbacks at the top of the salary list speak for themselves as elite options, but here we dig deeper. 

For those who have yet to subscribe, what are you waiting for? Until then you will get one free pick to whet your appetite. Ben Roethlisberger ($6,100 DK, $7,500 FD) will get to face the same Browns defence that his backup threw for over 300 yards against just last week using what was likely a vanilla playbook. I look for Roethlisberger to put up similar numbers with more touchdowns as the Steelers put up a big number against the Browns.

Want more kick-ass DFS picks? We got them for a one-time fee of $99 per year. All sports including NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, PGA Tour golf, NASCAR and League of Legends. And you can try it out for a month free. We know the picks are good. You will too.

Washington may ultimately regret motivating the Tom Brady ($6,900 DK, $8,000 FD) this week. Washington’s defence has been among the best all year(mind you against what was an atrocious NFC East), but Tom Brady is who he is for a reason, and the Bucs offence is full of talent. Don’t be scared away from Brady this week because of Washington’s defensive numbers, he should have a big game for Tampa Bay.

Josh Allen ($7,500 DK, $9,000 FD) should be a viable option again this week. The Colts gave up 300 yards passing in four of the last five games of the season, and with Allen’s ability to run he always has the ability to have a huge game. He isn’t going to come cheap, but he is a solid option in both GPP and cash because he has such a high floor.

With what could be one last chance at the playoffs I look for  Drew Brees ($5,700 DK, $7,800 FD) to come out and have a big game. He performed well last week, in spite of no throwing any touchdown passes. If you’re going to pay down at the QB position, Brees is an option that still has some upside as 300 yards and a few touchdowns aren’t out of the question going against an average Bears pass defence.

This one is a bit of a GPP long shot, but given what John Wolford ($4,900 DK, $6,200 FD) was able to do last week against the Cardinals, there is reason to be optimistic this week as his style is very different from Jared Goff, and without any knowledge yet(and the Rams will likely keep it a game-time decision), the Seahawks will need to prepare for both quarterback styles. If you can get another 250 yards passing and 50 yards rushing with a few touchdowns, at this price you will be happy.
