Two overvalued Packers in NFC title game

We break down what Packers might be overvalued in this weekend’s DFS contests for the NFC title game.

The Green Bay Packers are visiting the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC title game Sunday, and there’s not much time left for NFL DFS contests. That being said, we’ve selected a couple Green Bay players who could be overvalued in this weekend’s two-game slate.

Aaron Jones, RB ($6,700)

Jones might have totaled 19.8 DKFP against the Seattle Seahawks in the Divisional Round, but his ground yardage was discouraging. Jones only averaged less than three yards per carry, totaling 62 rushing yards on 21 carries. He’ll be up against a 49ers front line that only afforded Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook 18 rushing yards on nine carries last week. San Francisco held Jones ton 3.8 DKFP at Levi’s Stadium earlier this season and could give Jones a hard time again.

Allen Lazard, WR ($4,400)

Lazard is supposedly Green Bay’s No. 2 wideout but has been streaky. He suffered an ankle injury against the Seahawks before he managed to tally any catches in the the Divisional Round but appears poised to play next week. Davante Adams has continued to the Packers’ lone consistent pass catcher. It seems like Lazard being the team’s fourth most expensive player is a stretch. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jimmy Graham are less pricey and have been just as productive as Lazard this season.
