It is championship week in most fantasy football leagues, and taking a look at what “Vegas” tells you might aid you a tad in setting those pesky lineups. Consider every piece of information you can, right?

Updated staff numbers are here:

Unanimous picks this week: BAL, MIN, KC, NE, WAS, PIT

“Ledge” picks this week: TEN (Mark), CIN (Clark), NYJ (Clark), ATL (Mark), TB (Clark), SF (Mark), OAK (Pete).

That’s a lot of ledge happenings this week, driven mostly by the “Clark and Mark” duo. Sounds like a new podcast where two guys make off-the-wall picks one day and lament the loss of all their money the next day...

I am no wizard with extrapolating Vegas information into actionable moves for your fake teams or for your DFS lineups, but I did take a look at the games that are projected to be the closest AND that have solid point totals. There are three, and I’d like to know which one YOU expect to be a shootout. I think I am stuck on stacking SEA @ DAL for DFS purposes, since I think it will be slightly less popular than the “Coors Field” of the NFL (ATL @ NO). Be contrarian, not stupid—right? Vote below!
