DFS Roundtable: Motivation Games

The DFS team discusses playoff scenarios late in the NFL season and lineup building

In general, how do you approach key playoff scenario games late in the NFL season versus teams with nothing to play for on the postseason front? Does it function as a tiebreaker, something more, or nothing at all?

Along those lines, one critical game on the main slate is the Patriots as short road favorites over the Steelers. What is your favorite stack in this game? Who is the best value among the running backs?

James Brimacombe: I try to avoid bad teams late in the season because the player timeshares are so unpredictable. Bad teams seem to get even worse near the end of the season and on the flip side the good teams are becoming even better and with the playoffs in reach will be putting it all on the line.

The Patriots vs Steelers is always one of the must-watch games whenever they square off and with both in a late-season battle with the playoffs ahead of them you have to want to load up on players in this game. My favorite stack in this game is Tom Brady and Josh Gordon and running it back with JuJu Smith-Schuster on the other side. I am looking for touchdowns this week and hoping for a back and forth type of game with both Gordon and Smith-Schuster battling for the end zone.
