NFL DFS Picks for Saturday’s Wild-Card Games


Saturday’s DFS season only has two games, but there are still plenty of opportunities to build a successful DFS lineup.

In the first of the two duels on Saturday, the Seattle Seahawks meet the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners easily uncovered the range in both wins against division rivals Seahawks this season, and in this weekend’s matchup San Francisco took the lead at SI Sportsbook with a 9.5. I expect this game to go exactly as predicted, with the 49ers likely running the ball against a Seattle run defense that ranks 30th in the league and allows 150.2 rushing yards per game. Brock Purdy will be a great referee and all San Francisco pass catchers should be back in action for this game. As for Seattle, QB Geno Smith has played just one TD in two games this year against the 49ers, and the Seattle running backs have had little success against the league’s toughest run defense, which averages just 77.7 rushing yards per game admitted this year.
