Two overvalued wide receivers for Divisional Round DFS

We break down what wide receivers might be overvalued in this weekend’s four-game slate for the NFL’s Divisional Round.

We’re done with Wild Card weekend and the Divisional Round is approaching. The next installment of playoff football brings a new four-game DFS slate. Some wide receivers in the Divisional Round are worth their price tags, but others might not be. We broke down what pass catchers in this weekend’s slate could be overvalued.

Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs ($7,600)

Hill is one of the most dangerous skill players in the Divisional Round, but this price seems like a little much ahead of his team’s matchup with the Houston Texans. The speedster is always a threat to break off a big play, but he isn’t the top option in Kansas City’s offense. That honor goes to Travis Kelce ($6,400). Hill’s abilities production could jump in the postseason, but the numbers just haven’t been there.

Hill hasn’t eclipsed eight targets or 13 DKFP since he exploded for 36 DKFP on 19 targets in Week 11. That doesn’t mean there’s no chance he’ll have a big game. He scored 25 DKFP the last time he faced the Texans. But there’s risk associated with selecting him as the fifth most expensive player in this weekend’s four-game slate.

A.J. Brown, Tennessee Titans ($6,000)

While Brown was much more solid than expected throughout his rookie campaign with Tennessee, the wideout’s playoff debut was discouraging. He was only target once during his team’s victory over the New England Patriots in the Wild Card round and finished the contest with one reception for four yards. The Baltimore Ravens are among the league’s best defending the run and have invested well in their secondary this year as well. Brown could be in for another tough day.

I wasn’t sold out Brown when he entered the postseason priced at $7,400, and I’m still not. Tennessee feels its best bet is to feed Derrick Henry, so don’t expect too many balls to come Brown’s way this weekend.
