Our 49ers-Packers FanDuel lineup includes two of the most obvious players, but we’re wiping out Deebo Samuel and both teams’ current games. It’s a major risk, but something has to be sacrificed when it comes to playoff game rosters. Saturday night’s Divisional Round game could play out a few different ways, but it’ll be hard to put together a winning roster without Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, so let’s see how to fit some viable picks around them.
Here are the main scoring parameters for single-game FanDuel contests: The point total for “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, but it doesn’t cost extra money like “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel’s default score is PPR half point and Four point passing TD, and there is no bonus for 100/300 yard plays like on DraftKings.

DFS FanDuel Picks for a Single Game: 49ers vs. Packers
$50,000 budget, need at least one player from each team.
MVP: (1.5x points): QB Aaron Rodgers, Packers ($16,500)
Rodgers has averaged nearly 300 yards and more than three total touchdowns over his last six full games, so there’s no reason to back away from him in this game. You could argue for another MVP pick, but Rodgers is likely to be involved in most of his team’s scoring. It’s limestone, but if Rodgers goes as planned, he’ll be needed there.
FLEX: WR Davante Adams, packers ($14,500)
Adams is a sure thing, and even if you lose Rodgers, picking Adams makes sense. He’s averaged nearly nine catches, 105.7 yards and 1.3 touchdowns over his last six full games. He’s just as good as an MVP pick, but we’re going with Rodgers because of his ability to run for a TD.
FLEX: QB Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers ($14,000)
Garoppolo is a bit of a contrarian pick, which is rare for a QB. He hasn’t had multiple TDs in a game since Week 14, so hopefully he’ll pull himself together for this game. The Packers were above average against fantasy QBs this year, but they were even better against RBs, so we’ll take a chance that Garoppolo can get multiple scores.
FLEX: K Robbie Gould, 49ers ($8,500)
Gould has made eight of eight field goal attempts in his last three games, and he’s had multiple PATs in those games as well. Even in potentially poor conditions at Lambeau Field, Gould should see his fair share of scoring opportunities.
FLEX: WR Randall Cobb, Packers ($6,000)
Cobb (core) has been out since Week 12, but is expected to return this week for a favorable game. With Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back), Cobb could easily be Green Bay’s No. 2 receiver. Given his price, he makes sense as a stack with Rodgers and Adams, but he’s unlikely to be held very well.
