Best value lineup strategy for Ravens vs. Bills in the Divisional Round of the 2021 NFL playoffs

We go over some of the top DFS value plays for the Divisional round playoff matchup between the Ravens and Bills.

Unreasonable Odds: Baltimore at Buffalo

In the last Divisional Round playoff game on Saturday, we have the No. 5 seed Baltimore Ravens playing the No. 2 seed Buffalo Bills at 8:15 p.m. ET.

The Bills, who defeated the Indianapolis Colts 27-24 last week, will be trying to get back to the AFC Championship game since the 90s. Meanwhile, the Ravens defeated the Titans 20-13 in the wildcard round and want to get back to the AFC title game for the first time since 2012.

In regards to DFS, we have a few big name players on both teams. Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Lamar Jackson, Marquise Brown, and Mark Andrews will be featured in many showdown lineups. All these players listed have been fantastic this season and scored a lot of fantasy points.

Outside of the big names, who are some lower-tier value flex plays on both teams that could help you win this Ravens vs. Bills Divisional showdown on DraftKings? Let’s discuss some options below.

Gabriel Davis, WR, $5600

The rookie wide receiver out of UCF continues to be a reliable second option in the passing game for quarterback Josh Allen. Last week against the Indianapolis Colts, Davis had four receptions (four targets) for 85 yards.

Despite not scoring a touchdown, the rookie still recorded 12.5 fantasy points. It was the second-straight game that Davis scored at 10 fantasy points or more. In terms of Saturday night’s game, Davis might have a tougher matchup as he’ll likely be matched up against Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters. But with Cole Beasley demanding attention in the slot and John Brown with ability to stretch the field, there should be opportunities for Davis.

Devin Singletary, RB, $7200

Out of three players that we will talk about, Singletary is the highest-priced and will have a major impact on Saturday’s divisional game. The second-year running back will be looked to carry a heavy workload with rookie Zack Moss on IR. In last week’s game, Singletary only had 21 yards on three carries, along with three receptions for 23 yards.

For his efforts, the former FAU running back only recorded 7.4 fantasy points, which is around his season average of 8.9 fantasy points per game. But for Buffalo to advance, they’ll need a double-digit fantasy performance. This season, the Ravens’ defense is only giving up 105.4 rushing yards per game and ranked 12th against RBs (OPRK).

Gus Edwards, RB, $2600

Edwards might not have the explosiveness or versatility such as rookie running back J.K. Dobbins. However, he plays an integral role in the Ravens’ ground attack, which has been successful throughout the second half of the regular season. Last week, Edwards only mustered 3.8 fantasy points on 38 rushing yards on eight carries. That was a drop-off from his last two performances of 8.0 and 14.2 fantasy points against the Bengals and Giants.

This week, he’ll try to get back on the wagon against a Bills’ defense that isn’t the best defending the run. This season, the Bills’ defense is giving up 122.2 rushing yards per game and has allowed five rushing touchdowns in their last four games.
