FanDuel NFL DFS Lineup Picks For Divisional Round (Saturday) - Daily Fantasy Football


Divisional Round Saturday is here, and we have two games scheduled on Saturday to get things going throughout the weekend. In the first game of the night, Minnesota, who pulled off an upset over Drew Brees and the Saints last weekend, will head to the bay area to meet up with a 49ers team that didn't look as invincible to finish out the year. Adam Thielen, who is listed as questionable with an ankle injury, is expected to suit up.

To close out the night, the Ravens, who had a week off after earning a first-round bye, will welcome the Titans to Baltimore. Tennessee is coming off of a semi-surprise win over the offensively-challenged Patriots in the Wild Card round and will look to keep the momentum going against arguably the best team in the league. Mark Ingram will likely play after missing the final game of the regular season with calf tightness but may be limited more than the team is letting on.

In this article, I will be providing you with daily fantasy football picks on FanDuel for Saturday, January 11, 2020 (Divisional Round Saturday). These lineups can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel.

FanDuel Quarterbacks - Divisional Round Saturday

Kirk Cousins - QB, @ SF ($7,600)

Cousins isn't always the most effective fantasy quarterback, but if he has anything going for him, it's that he doesn't make a ton of costly mistakes. The 31-year-old is actually having one of the best--if not the best--seasons throughout his tenure in the league, finishing the year with a career-best 107.4 passer rating to go along with a career-low six interceptions. He is playing behind an offensive line that allowed him to take just 28 sacks this season and has some dependable weapons at his disposal in Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, and Adam Thielen. It doesn't hurt either that he will be up against a 49ers Defense that allowed a second-worst 25.75 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks over the last four weeks of 2019. He probably won't supply you with Lamar Jackson type numbers, but he will give you some breathing room if you are looking to include both Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook in your DFS lineup on Saturday.

 

FanDuel Running Backs - Divisional-Round Saturday

Derrick Henry - RB, @ BAL ($9,800)

Henry put together an impressive 2019 campaign, and it could be argued that he was the most undervalued fantasy back in all of football heading into the year. He finished the season with a league-leading 1,540 yards while also amassing 1,268 yards after contact. In an effort to keep Lamar Jackson off of the field, the Titans may turn to the 26-year-old often in order to chew up the clock, while also keeping Ryan Tannehill from making costly mistakes against one the league's best defensive units.

Dalvin Cook - RB, @ SF ($8,600)

Expect Cook to be plenty involved on Saturday against San Francisco. He shined against the Saints during Wild-Card Weekend and ran the ball 28 times for 94 yards and two touchdowns. He also was involved as a receiver by pulling in three of his five targets for 36 yards. Kirk Cousins has been showing plenty of love to Cook this year, especially on short passes that limited the potential for errors. Expect more of the same on Sunday against a 49ers team that struggled defensively to close out the regular season.

 

FanDuel Wide Receivers - Divisional Round Saturday

Deebo Samuel - WR, @ MIN ($6,600)

I am hesitant to recommend any receivers from the Tennessee/Baltimore contest as I have a feeling that clock management will be a huge factor, which would obviously limit the fantasy potential for most. Samuel, on the other hand, may finish the night as the most efficient receiver, especially against a Vikings Defense that allowed 34.85 fantasy points to wideouts over the last month of the regular season. The rookie is coming off of arguably his most impactful performance of the year, finishing by catching all five of his targets for 102 yards against Seattle in Week 17, while also adding two rushing attempts for 33 yards and a score. Also, keep Emmanuel Sanders in your back pocket if you are looking for a potentially effective one-two punch.

 

FanDuel Tight Ends - Divisional Round Saturday

Kyle Rudolph - TE, @ SF ($5,500)

If you are looking to save some cash by fading George Kittle, Rudolph has a substantial upside that should be ignored. While there is a good chance that he could flop from a fantasy standpoint, he could also have a performance similar to the one he had against the Saints, where he compiled four catches (seven targets) for 31 yards. He also caught the game-winner in overtime in that one and should be considered the second-best tight end available for Saturday's DFS slate.
