NFL DFS for Championship Weekend, 2021: Optimal DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks, lineups

The 2021 NFL Playoffs continue on Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Buffalo Bills in the 2021 AFC Championship Game, while the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet in the 2021 NFC Championship Game. There’s plenty on the line in NFL DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. As a result, it’s critical to enter optimal NFL DFS picks that can differentiate your lineup.

Patrick Mahomes is battling his way out of concussion protocol, so should you play it safe with Aaron Rodgers, Josh Allen or Tom Brady as part of your NFL DFS stacks? Who should you target in the NFL DFS player pool to be able to afford top options like Aaron Jones, Mike Evans and Travis Kelce? Before making any NFL DFS picks and NFL DFS stacks for Sunday’s Championship Round games, be sure to see the latest NFL DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.

McClure crushed his NFL DFS picks in 2019, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments. He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who followed him saw some huge returns.

In the Divisional Round, McClure had Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce as one of his top NFL DFS picks for both FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Kelce caught eight passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, returning almost 28 Fantasy points on both sites. Anybody who had him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to Sunday’s Championship Round games and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks for Sunday’s 2021 Championship Round

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Sunday’s Championship Round games is Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill at $7,200 on DraftKings and $8,400 on FanDuel. Even without Mahomes in the lineup in Week 17, quarterback Chad Henne looked capable, as he threw for 218 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to the Chargers. Even if Mahomes can’t play, Hill should still have a major role in a Kansas City offense that can still be dangerous.

Hill posted double-digit points on DraftKings in every game but one this season and had eight catches for 110 yards last week against Cleveland. Prior to facing the run-heavy Ravens in the Divisional Round, the Bills had allowed 693 combined passing yards in their previous two games.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs at $7,000 on DraftKings and $8,300 on FanDuel. The former Maryland star led the NFL in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535) with eight touchdowns during the regular season. He has also caught 14 passes for 234 yards and two scores in two postseason games.

Minnesota’s loss has been Buffalo’s gain, as quarterback Josh Allen quickly meshed with Diggs. He has notched 100-plus receiving yards in five of his last six games and averaged over 29 points on DraftKings during that time. Lock him into your NFL DFS lineups on Sunday.
