ESPN: Divisional Round DraftKings Matchups

The final fantasy column of the season at ESPN Insider looks at the injury-plagued divisional round. We are fading Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. Some of our favorite DraftKings matchups include Carson Palmer (stacked with Larry Fitzgerald), Emmanuel Sanders, Spencer Ware and Travis Kelce.

For last week's wild-card slate, I nailed the Kirk Cousins and Jordan Reed stack. They were the two highest-scoring players. I also did well to build a wide receiver corps with Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, A.J. Green and James Jones. The problem was (predictably) running back where Washington's Chris Thompson actually proved to be the high scorer thanks to eight catches. I was also dead wrong on fading Fitzgerald Toussaint as the Pittsburgh backs looked very good in Cincinnati, and Adrian Peterson was much worse than expected against the Seahawks.
