Fantasy football players who are setting 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge lineups for Championship Weekend have an embarrassment of riches to choose from. All four remaining teams — the Chiefs, Bills, Packers and Buccaneers — were among the top offenses in the league this season. Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Mike Evans, Tom Brady, Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are just some of the top potential 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge picks. Patrick Mahomes has been a popular option at quarterback, but with his status up in the air due (concussion), players will be looking for possible alternatives.

With so much talent remaining and only two rounds to go, what 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge strategy should you utilize? And which overlooked players could give you an edge this weekend? Before setting any 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge lineups, be sure to see the picks and advice from SportsLine’s Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million. 

McClure uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action in every game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.

He absolutely crushed his DFS picks during the the 2019 NFL regular season, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments. He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who has been following him has seen some huge returns. 

Now he’s turned his attention to the 2021 NFL Playoff Challenge. Go here to see his full Championship Weekend lineups

Top NFL Playoff Challenge picks for Championship Weekend 2021

One of McClure’s top NFL Playoff Challenge picks for Championship Weekend 2021: Packers wide receiver Davante Adams. McClure has been on Adams from the start, so this will be a 3x multiplier for him this week since the Packers remained alive into the third weekend of the 2021 NFL Playoffs. Adams has been extremely difficult to cover all season. 

He finished in the top five in the NFL in receptions (115), receiving yards (1,374) and receiving touchdowns (18) this season. And even with All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey defending him last week, Adams still put together an impressive 9-66-1 receiving line. He should find plenty of room to operate this week against a Tampa Bay squad that ranked 21st in the NFL in passing defense this season. 

And with Green Bay favored by 3.5 points at William Hill Sportsbook, Adams has a good shot at staying alive, further building his multiplier as Super Bowl LV approaches.
