Two-Minute Drill
  • QB Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars – The Jaguars need a win against the Titans to lock up a Playoff spot. With the Playoffs on the line, Lawrence will play through his shoulder injury. I am fading Lawrence, but Evan Engram is a definite play.
  • WR Jaylen Waddle & RB Raheem Mostert, Miami Dolphins – The Dolphins will be without their top running back and second best receiving option for the Sunday Night Football game against the Bills. This game will determine the AFC East. Most DFS contests will not include the Sunday night game with the rest of the Week 18 games, but you can enter showdown contests that only include the Bills vs. Dolphins. Tyreek Hill and De’Von Achane would be the top Captain options. You can also take a look at their betting props for the yards total.
  • RB Alvin Kamara, New Orleans Saints – Kamara is inactive today, which leaves Jamaal Williams as the starting running back. Williams will be heavily played, but in a game where the Saints need to win for a chance to make the playoffs, he will have plenty of opportunities.
  • RB Isiah Pacheco, Kansas City Chiefs – The Chiefs will not play Pacheco today. He may suit up, but will stay on the sidelines unless every other active running back goes down with an injury. Jerick McKinnon is currently on IR, so that leaves Clyde Edwards-Helaire as the starting back. The Chiefs will be starting Blaine Gabbert at QB, but CEH is still a great play with the touches he will get.
  • QB Baker Mayfield, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Baker Mayfield previously led the Browns to the Playoffs, and he will look to do the same for the Bucs. After dealing with a rib injury, Baker will start for the Bucs in their must-win game against the Panthers.
