Dr. Roto's DFS Plays For Wild Card Weekend

Dr. Roto lists his top DFS target on Wild Card Weekend at each of the four major skill positions!

Daily Dr. Roto — January 6, 2017

DFS Plays for Wild Card Weekend


Ben Roethlisberger — Ben plays like a beast at home, and he will be one of the two quarterbacks I use in all my lineups this weekend.

Russell Wilson — Wilson is the other guy I will use extensively as I think the home field advantage favors Seattle and the Lions struggle against the pass.

Aaron Rodgers — It’s hard not to play Rodgers especially at home, but this is a tough matchup, and the Giants pass rush could cause problems.

Eli Manning — I normally love Eli on the road in a big game, but the Giants offense has been anemic this year, and I can't use him with Ben and Wilson around.

Running Backs

Le’Veon Bell — Bell should be the one player on every DFS roster this weekend.  

Lamar Miller — Miller ran well against the Raiders the last time these teams played, but with Osweiler there, it wouldn’t shock me to see him face eight men in the box all game long.

Latavius Murray — Del Rio wants Murray to have 20 carries this week. That will happen so long as the team is ahead. If they trail, expect to see more Jalen Richard.

Thomas Rawls — Always a threat for a rushing TD in what should be a close game.

Jay Ajayi — He went off for over 200 yards the last time these teams played. The Steelers will be ready for him, but the Dolphins will feed him the ball as much as his injured shoulder can handle.

Wide Receivers

Antonio Brown — The Dolphins limited him earlier this season, and they might do so again with as much double coverage as they can muster. Still hard to fade him as he is one of the top two players in the game.

Odell Beckham Jr — The best WR in the game vs. one of the worst secondaries — but can Eli find him enough?

Jordy Nelson — It’s all about Janoris Jenkins. If Jenkins plays, I am OK fading Jordy. If Jenkins sits, Jordy is a must-start.

Jarvis Landry — He should be Moore’s top target this week.

Doug Baldwin — Sneaky good play as Wilson’s go-to guy in crunch situations.

Golden Tate — Revenge game? Or will Seattle take him out of the game early? I am avoiding him as I think the Seahawks won’t let him beat them.

DeAndre Hopkins — Love him, but HATE Brock. I will most likely look elsewhere.

Amari Cooper — Love him, but HATE Cook. I will most likely look elsewhere.

Eli Rogers — If I need to save a few bucks from starting Bell and Ajayi, I might use Rogers and hope he has a breakout game.

Michael Crabtree — I don’t expect him to go off vs. tough Texans defense.

DeVante Parker — A top weapon, but Steelers DBs are playing better than they have all year long.

Davante Adams — Really think he is the key to the game this week. He should be open, but he has to hold onto the football.

Paul Richardson — My sleeper pick of the week to save a few bucks.

Tight Ends

Jimmy Graham — Detroit is awful vs. TE. A Must play.

Eric Ebron — Has looked good the past two weeks. Might pair with Graham on DK in my flex spot.

Ladarius Green — Not sure he plays as he is still dealing with a concussion. Would consider Jesse James for sure if Green is ruled out.

Jared Cook — The Giants do struggle vs. TE but he is very inconsistent, and no one knows if he will fade in a big spot.

C.J. Fiedorowicz — Like him, but would only use him to save money.
