Indianapolis Colts DFS Spin
Philip Rivers completed 17-of-27 attempts 164 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars. With the win, the Colts (11-5) are headed to Buffalo for Wild Card weekend. Rivers will have to bring his best ball to keep pace with the Bills, and he'll have to do so without his left tackle. The veteran didn't look to lose much zip on his passes in 2020 and even dropped his interceptions from 20 to 11. Rivers' 4,168 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 7.7 yards per attempt average indicate that he can get hot in stretches.
Buffalo Bills DFS Spin
Josh Allen completed 18-of-25 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns in the Bills' 56-26, Week 17 win over the Dolphins. This was in two-quarters of work, as Allen was rested in the second half after the Bills took a 28-6 lead at halftime. Even without Cole Beasley, Allen and Buffalo's offense continued their dominant ways, shredding a Dolphins defense that was considered one of the NFL's best at points this season. It concluded a breakout regular season for Josh Allen, totaling 45 touchdowns and setting a franchise single-season record for passing yards with 4,544.
NFL Wild Card Weekend Total Prediction
