Let’s breakdown Sunday’s single-game daily fantasy football slate featuring the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, which kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
Cash Game Roster Construction
These teams played a low-scoring, 17-10 affair in Week 15 last season, but Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger still have the top two median projections in our NFL Player Models. Pairing each team’s QB with their lead back gives the best chance of capturing all the game’s touchdowns, so James Conner and Sony Michel should be locked in as well.
As a home favorite, Brady is the top MVP choice. That leaves enough for Stephen Gostkowski and value option at the last spot. The Patriots tend to ignore the tight end, but in Ryan Izzo, you’re getting a starting TE for $200.
