Seven Divisional Round Sleepers

The Former No. 1 Fantasy Football Player in the World Mark Deming provides Divisional Round sleepers from a season-long and NFL DFS perspective!

*** Criteria for Sleeper QBs is players priced $6,000 or less on DraftKings (DK). Criteria for Sleeper WR/RB/TEs are players priced $4,200 or less on DK.

QB Alex Smith, Kansas City Chiefs

At $5,400, Smith is a serviceable option in the matchup vs. Pittsburgh. Smith has averaged 19 DK points in home games and did put up 18.68 points in the Week 4 game vs. Pittsburgh. Smith has six TDs (five passing/one rushing) in two career home playoff starts.

QB Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Another sleeper QB is Prescott priced at $6,000. Prescott averaged 21.8 DK points in home games and threw for 3 TDs in his Week 6 matchup vs. Green Bay. The Cowboys should be able to run on the Packers, so Prescott will have opportunities for some big passing plays and running lanes.

RB C.J. Prosise, Seattle Seahawks

Monitor Prosise’s playing status as he will be a game-time decision. Before his shoulder injury, he was starting to emerge, and Russell Wilson was targeting Prosise often in the passing game. If Prosise ends up playing, he has upside given the matchup vs. Atlanta.

RB Dion Lewis, New England Patriots

An affordable RB to parlay with higher salaried players could be Dion Lewis at $3,900. Lewis has averaged 15 rush attempts over the last three games and has just missed on a few big hitters in the explosive Pats offense. Because of Lewis' versatility, don't be surprised if he leads the Pats RBs in snaps vs. the Texans.

WR Terrance Williams, Dallas Cowboys

Sometimes WRs get hot come playoff time, and Williams has caught 2 of his four TDs on the year over the last four games. Against the Packers 31st ranked pass defense Williams is worth a deeper look. Williams has four receptions for 130 yards and three TDs in two career playoff games.

WR Michael Floyd, New England Patriots

Floyd is drinking the Pats’ Kool-Aid, and that is better than drinking at stop lights in Arizona. Floyd has TD receptions in two of his last four games and is a threat to score vs. Houston. In Floyds only career home playoff game, the former 1st round draft selection had a two-TD game vs. Green Bay in 2015.

TE Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys

TEs can be bigger factors in colder weather games, especially in do or die NFL playoff situations. That means Witten could be very undervalued in this matchup vs. Green Bay. The Cowboys fierce running game combined with Dez’s appetite for revenge vs. Green Bay (no catch call) should open up the opportunity for Cowboys underneath targets Witten, Williams, and Beasley. In seven career playoff games, the veteran TE has 39 receptions for 427 yards.
