DraftKings Tiers – Conference Championship Sunday

Daily Fantasy

This is our final Tiers slate of the 2022 NFL season. I know, I’m sad too! But let’s make the most of this 2-game Tiers slate!

Note:  I’m adding a Contranian category for each. This means it’s probably not as optimal but you could get huge ownership leverage. I would only play one or two contrarian plays for each contest.

Also note that in Tiers 1-3, you could really make a case for all the players. In Tiers 4-6, I think some players stand out more. So use this as a guide, but if you have a good read or gut feel on a certain player in Tiers 1-3, go with it!



Favorite: Jalen Hurts
Other Core:  Joe Burrow
Contrarian:  Brock Purdy
Fade:  Patrick Mahomes – note, I think he’ll be very limited. But if you think the injury concern is overblown, then definitely play him.


Favorite:  Ja’Marr Chase
Other Core:  Christian McCaffery, Travis Kelce, AJ Brown
Contrarian:  None
Fade:  None


Favorite:  DeVonta Smith
Other Core:  Deebo Samuel, Joe Mixon
Contrarian:  Jerick McKinnon

Favorite: George Kittle
Other Core:  Tee Higgins, Miles Sanders

Favorite: Dallas Goedert
