NFL DFS picks for DraftKings lineups for Week 3 of the playoffs

Winning DFS lineups are made by picking the best possible values at every position while also maximizing your salary cap. Every week, we evaluate all of your DraftKings options to allow you to do that, identifying the best values while also letting you avoid the worst and select the players who are worth their high price tags. Value is determined by the number of DraftKings points you can expect for every dollar invested in putting that player in your lineup. An "average" Tyreek Hill may yet outscore a "great" Sammy Watkins, but at the price you had to pay for Hill, Watkins may be the better value because of the other players you were able to fit in your lineup thanks to his lower cap hit.

Players considered to be a "Great" value are those in the 90th percentile of projected value picks for the week. "Good" plays are in the 75th percentile or better. "Average" plays span the 25th to 74th percentiles, while "Shaky" plays are in the 10th-24th percentiles. "Poor" picks encompass single-digit percentiles. Only players projected to score 4 points or more are displayed.

Player salaries are drawn from DraftKings' main slate and are based on the ESPN player projections available at the time of publication. For picks specific to FanDuel contests, please see our FanDuel Playoffs Week 3 Cheat Sheet
