8 NFL FanDuel Value Plays for the Wild Card Round
Saturday Quarterback: Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
We're not left with many quarterback options on a two-game slate.
While Watson is our top point-per-dollar value among Saturday's quarterbacks, he's hardly a value option as the highest-priced passer of the entire weekend.
Second to Watson in value, per our models, on Saturday is Russell Wilson.
Wilson is coming off a down game in Week 17, but before that, he notched at least 18 FanDuel points in 10 of 11 games. He failed to hit 18 FanDuel points in three of his first four games this year, but after that slow start, he went on to average 20.3 per game over the remainder of the season.
The Dallas Cowboys have been a tough fantasy matchup for quarterbacks this year, allowing bottom-10 fantasy production to the position, but they did give up 18-plus FanDuel points to opposing passers in two of their final four games (to Eli Manning and Carson Wentz) to close out the season, and Russ can thrive in this spot.
