On Sunday, the New England Patriots will be hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars. Here are five players to target for your DraftKings lineups.
With the AFC Championship Game here for the New England Patriots and the Jacksonville Jaguars, that means the DraftKings season is coming to an end. While DraftKings has recently opened up single-game contests, this will be the last two-game slate of the season.
For the Patriots, they are coming into the game as a decent favorite against the Jaguars as expected. Due to them being the defending champions and having home-field advantage, no team was going to be favored against the Patriots in New England.
While many expected this to be the Steelers playing the Patriots this weekend, the Jaguars had other plans. Last week, Jacksonville was able to go into Pittsburgh and pull off a big upset. Behind a strong game from Leonard Fournette and some turnovers forced by their defense, the Jaguars were able to score 45 points and win the game.
Compared to the NFC Championship Game, the AFC is more appealing to DraftKings players. Since this will likely be the higher scoring of the two, expect to see most players owning Patriots and Jaguars this week. Targeting players from teams that are expected to score is generally a good place to start in DraftKings, and that will mean a lot of Patriots being highly owned this week.
While there are some decent options for DraftKings on the NFC side, we will be taking a look at only players from the AFC Championship Game. Here are the top five players to use for your Draft Kings lineups when the Patriots host the Jaguars on Sunday afternoon.
