He has made it known that he is the number one back in Tampa. Jones II has recorded double-digit fantasy points in each of his last three games.

Wide Receivers:

Draft: John Brown, vs Indianapolis Colts

Draft Kings Salary: $4,700

Why Draft Kings lineup owners should draft John Brown: Buffalo is a pass first team and Josh Allen is always looking for a reason the throw the football. John Brown put together a great game in his first game back since Week 10 of the NFL Season. Against Miami he would record four catches for 72 yards and a touchdown. This would give him 17.2 fantasy points. Brown also gives lineup owners room to sign another big name player because of his salary being so low.

Other wide receivers to add with John Brown: Stefon Diggs: $7,700 and DK Metcalf: $6,700


Tight End:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski
Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski

Draft: Rob Gronkowski, vs Washington Football Team

Draft Kings Salary: $3,900

Why Draft Kings lineup owners should draft Rob Gronkowski: Gronkowski has not had the best 2020 NFL Season but he did record a 19.8 fantasy point game against the Detroit Lions in NFL Week 16. Also Rob Gronkowski will be the second player with most NFL playoff experience on Saturday. We could potentially see Tom Brady go to his most reliable target over the past five years.

Flex Position:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown

Draft: Antonio Brown, vs Washington Football Team

Draft Kings Salary: $6,100

Why Draft Kings lineup owners should draft Antonio Brown: Tampa Bay Buccaneers could potentially be without their top wide receiver Mike Evans. Tom Brady and Antonio Brown have seemed to found that chemistry they had in his short time in New England. Brown has also found the endzone four times in the last three games. The last three games Antonio Brown has recorded 39.8, 13.5 and 20.3 fantasy points.

Other Flex Options: Terry McLaurin: $6,300, Cooper Kupp: $6,000 and T.Y. Hilton: $5,000

Draft: Seattle Seahawks Defense/Special Teams, vs Los Angeles Rams

Draft Kings Salary: $2,700

Why Draft Kings lineup owners should draft Seattle Seahawks defense/special teams: With Jared Goff's status up in the air for Saturdays meeting between the Rams and Seahawks. The Seahawks defense is a great grab for a cheap price. If Goff doesn't play then we could potentially see a 10-15 fantasy point game from the Seahawks defense.
