Wild Card Weekend has come and gone in the NFL. With 158.26 points, ‘buttfumbletwo‘won the FanDuel Wild Card Weekend Saturday Million, padding his bankroll by $120,000. He edged out the second place player by just 0.3 points. There were four games on the Wild Card slate.
At the quarterback position, ‘buttfumbletwo’ had Washington’s Kirk Cousins, who was 27% owned and had 329 passing yards, two total touchdowns, and a lost fumble. Cousins amassed 21.36 points, or two-and-a-half times his $8,000 salary.
At running back, ‘buttfumbletwo’ rostered Fitzgerald Toussaint and James Starks, who were 19% and 7% owned, respectively. Toussaint, filling in for the injured DeAngelo Williams, had 58 rushing yards and four catches for 60 yards, totaling 13.8 points on FanDuel. Starks, who had largely been an afterthought in recent weeks, logged 65 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown for Green Bay.
At receiver, ‘buttfumbletwo’ paid up to get Doug Baldwin, AJ Green, and Martavis Bryant. Baldwin, who was 35% owned in a game played in subzero temperatures, had five catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. Green, who was 39% owned, also found the end zone on five catches for 71 yards. Green’s season is now over, while Baldwin and the Seahawks head to Carolina on Sunday.
Bryant was 14% owned after turning in duds the last few weeks, but responded to critics by snagging five balls for 29 yards and a touchdown. He also added 44 yards rushing for a total of 15.8 points on FanDuel. Bryant could be the de facto number one receiver for Pittsburgh in the team’s Divisional Round game against Denver if Antonio Brown cannot go due to a concussion.
At tight end, ‘buttfumbletwo’ selected Jordan Reed, the most expensive tight end on the board this week. Reed, however, didn’t disappoint and reeled in nine catches for 140 yards and a touchdown for the Redskins, scoring 22.5 points on FanDuel. Despite his price tag, Reed was almost 50% owned.
‘buttfumbletwo’ had a Kansas City kicker-defense stack. Cairo Santos had three field goals and three extra points, good for 14 points on FanDuel. Santos was 14% owned. Kansas City’s defense eviscerated Brian Hoyer and the Texans to the tune of zero points allowed, one touchdown, three sacks, one fumble recovery, and four interceptions. The Chiefs were 23% owned and racked up 29 points, the most of any defense during the Wild Card Round.
