FanDuel NFL Wild Card Weekend Strategy Center

The NFL Playoffs have arrived, but fantasy football hasn’t gone anywhere!

Even if your favorite team didn’t make the playoffs, it’s pretty easy to get excited for some awesome matchups…especially when a trip to the Super Bowl is on the line. Usually, the worst part is the beginning of the postseason means the end of fantasy football.

Well, not anymore. FanDuel knows how important it is to keep playing, which is why we offer contests through the NFC and AFC Championship games. Just when you thought you’d have to wait until next year to enjoy fantasy football again, you still have three weeks left to play!

Consider it a late Christmas gift from us to you.

With that being said, navigating NFL playoff contests are much different than the regular season. So, strategy is more important than ever, which is why we’re here to help.

Our video team has been busy all week trying to find different strategies for this week’s slate. Check out the video below and subscribe to our YouTube channel so you never miss something that will help give you an edge in a contest:
