Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin
Tom Brady completed 18-of-33 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs' 30-20, Divisional Round win over the Saints. He also rushed for a one-yard touchdown on a QB sneak in the fourth quarter following a Devin White interception, and it staked the Bucs to a commanding 30-20 lead that they wouldn't relinquish. Both Brady and Drew Brees struggled to move the ball most of the night, but it was Brady who came up with the needed big plays and took care of the football. His two touchdowns were a three-yarder to Mike Evans for Evans' only catch of the game, and the second was a six-yard hookup with Leonard Fournette. Brady and the Bucs will head to Green Bay next Sunday for the NFC title and a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. It will be Brady's 14th conference championship game.
Green Bay Packers DFS Spin
Davante Adams caught 9-of-10 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Green Bay's Divisional Round win against the Rams. WR-CB pundits assumed Jalen Ramsey would shadow Adams throughout the afternoon, but the former opened the game as a zone corner and was only asked to cover Adams on 8-of-16 routes in the first half. Coach Matt LaFleur ultimately got the best of the matchup, motioning Adams across the line of scrimmage pre-snap to free him for a one-yard score after S Nick Scott took a false step forward and got in Ramsey's way mid-chase. Adams' longest gain was a 21-yard catch on the ensuing play after Jared Goff hit rookie Van Jefferson for a four-yard score. Whether it's the Buccaneers or Saints which travel to Lambeau in the Conference Championship round, Adams will rank as the No. 1 receiver for any two-game DFS slates.
