Our 49ers-Packers FanDuel lineup features two of the most obvious players, but we’re fading out Deebo Samuel and both teams’ ground games. It’s a big risk, but you have to sacrifice something when it comes to single-game playoff lineups. Saturday night’s divisional round game could go any number of ways, but it will be tough to put together a winning lineup without Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, so let’s break down how to fit viable picks around them.
Here are the key scoring adjustments for FanDuel single game contests: The point total for the “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, but does not cost additional money like the “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel’s default score is and , and there are no bonuses for 100/300 yard games like in DraftKings.
FanDuel Single Game DFS Picks: 49ers vs. packers
Budget of $50,000, at least one player from each team is needed.
Rodgers has averaged nearly 300 yards and more than three total TDs in his last six complete games, so there’s no reason to walk away from him in this matchup. An argument could be made for a different MVP pick, but Rodgers is likely to be involved in most of his team’s scoring. It’s chalky, but if Rodgers pans out, he’ll be needed here.
Adams is a sure thing, and even if you’re fading Rodgers, picking Adams makes sense. He has averaged nearly nine receptions, 105.7 yards and 1.3 TDs in his last six complete games. He’s as good as an MVP pick, but we’re going with Rodgers because of his ability to run for a TD.
Garoppolo is a bit of a contrarian pick, which is rare for a QB. He hasn’t had multiple TDs in a game since week 14, so we’re hoping he’ll bounce back for this game. The Packers were above average against fantasy QBs this year, but they were even better against RBs, so we’ll risk Garoppolo getting multiple scores.
Gould has made eight of eight field goal attempts in his last three games, and has had multiple PATs in those games as well. Even in potentially poor conditions at Lambeau Field, Gould should see his fair share of scoring opportunities.
Cobb (core) has been out since Week 12, but is expected to return this week to a favorable matchup. With Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) out, Cobb could easily be Green Bay’s No. 2 receiver. Given his price, he makes sense as a stack with Rodgers and Adams, but he’s unlikely to have a big property.
