2021-22 NFL DFS Conference Championship Weekend FanDuel Picks

Welcome back readers to my 2021-22 NFL DFS Conference Championship Weekend FanDuel Picks.

Here we go readers the final four teams are going to fight it out to see who will make it to the Super Bowl. You couldn’t have two completely different styles playing this weekend. 

The early game is going to be the Cincinnati Bengals taking on the Kansas City Chiefs In Arrowhead. This is going to be a battle of high-powered offenses. Almost every player in this game is going to be a fantasy option. If you thought Buffalo Bills against Kansas City Chiefs was an exciting game, well this game could be just as spectacular, with these two great offenses and bad defenses this game can get out of hand quickly. 

The late game is going to be the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Los Angeles Rams in SoFi stadium. This is going to be more of a battle of defenses. Whoever is the toughest team is going to come out of this game the winner. The 49ers have had the Rams number as of late winning their last six games against them. The Rams are going to be looking for payback and a trip to the Super Bowl. 

Both games are going to have a lot of players to choose from in FanDuel so let's get started.

2021-22 NFL DFS Conference Championship Weekend FanDuel Picks

Wisdom of the Crowd NFL DFS projections

Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs, (8,800)

Let’s face it Mahomes might be the best quarterback still in the playoffs. He is a magician on the field and he is going to show that again this game. The Bengals' defense is the worst in the NFL when it comes to the quarterback position. I am not looking for the Bengals' secondary to put up a fight in this matchup. Mahomes is the most expensive quarterback on the board but he is worth the money. He was the number one quarterback last week and he has the potential to repeat this week.

Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals, ($7,500)

I’m going with Burrow this week as one of my quarterbacks to play. The Kansas City Chiefs defense gave up almost 38 points to Josh Allen last week. Burrow should have no issue with putting up points on this very bad pass defense. Burrow is $1300 cheaper than Patrick Mahomes so he is a bargain this week. Cincinnati Bengals' defense is nowhere near as good as the Buffalo Bill's defense so Burrow is going to have to throw the ball to keep up in this game. I am predicting another high-scoring game in Kansas City so play a lot of players in this game. 

Joe Mixon, RB, Cincinnati Bengals, ($8,200)

Mixon is going to be heavily involved in this game. Even if he does not get the rush attempts he is accustomed to, he will factor in the passing game. Mixon is an explosive back that is hard to take down on the first tackle. Mixon is the most expensive running back on the board by far at $1200 more than Elijah Mitchell. But he will be a big advantage for your team if you can afford to put him in your lineups. 

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs, ($5,700) 

CEH looked good when he was on the field in the game against the Buffalo Bills. He rushed for 60 yards on just seven rush attempts. I predict he’s going to have a larger workload in this game as the Chiefs are going to try to run the ball to keep it away from the Cincinnati Bengals offense. I did struggle with this decision between him and Jerick McKinnon. I’m going with CEH because he is the cheaper player and if he hits I feel fewer people will have him in their lineups. Whoever the Kansas City running back is, they are going to have a pretty good matchup. Cincinnati’s run defense is terrible. CEH is my choice in this game, so put him in your lineups and look for a big game.

Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers, ($8,400)

Is gonna be really hard to root against Samuel in this game against the Los Angeles Rams. He has put up an average of 27 fantasy points against them this season alone. The 49ers are going to find creative ways of putting the ball in his hand and letting him do what he does best and run through the defense. It’s really not going to matter who is going to try and stop him because Samuel is like a tank with a helmet. Samuel is going to be in a lot of my lineups this Sunday and he should be in a lot of yours. 

Ja'Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals, ($8,000)

Chase put up 50 fantasy points against the Kansas City Chiefs in just one game this season. At $8000 you should consider him a steal. He is $400 cheaper than Deebo Samuel and $1700 cheaper than Cooper Kupp. I am stacking him with Joe Burrow every chance I get. The Kansas City Chiefs do not have the personnel that can slow down this dynamic receiver. Like Deebo Samuel, Chase is a dangerous man with the ball in his hand. But where Samuel does it with power, Chase does it with speed. If you get a chance to put Chase in your lineup do it, he is worth the price tag.

C.J Uzomah, TE, Cincinnati Bengals, ($5,600)

I’m using most of my money at the wide receiver position, which means I need to save some money somewhere and that is going to be at tight end. So my number one tight end I’m going to use will be Uzomah. He is a good pass-catching tight end hauling in six of his seven targets in the game against the Tennessee Titans. Uzomah is a trusted weapon for Joe Burrow on third down, he likes to go to him when he wants to move the chains. He is not as flashy as Travis Kelce or George Kittle but he will get the job done and will be a good addition to any lineups. 

Tyler Higbee, TE, Los Angeles Rams, ($5,500)

Higbee is going to be very necessary for this game against the 49ers. San Francisco’s pass rush is going to be all over Matt Stafford so he’s going to need to check the ball down a lot. That’s where Higbee is going to excel. He also could see some targets in the end zone as the 49ers will be so focused on the wide receivers Higbee might be left open. Higbee is in half my lineups this Sunday because he’s a cheap tight end that can get me double-digit points.
