FanDuel DFS NFL picks and advice for Week 18 of the 2021 NFL season to help you build the perfect DFS fantasy football lineup.

Welcome back to yet another week of FanDuel DFS advice, this time for Week 18 of the NFL season! Week 17 was one of my worst weeks of DFS yet, and it mostly came down to me fully fading the Bengals against the Chiefs. 34 points from Joe Burrow and 50.1 points from Ja’Marr Chase later and I found myself in the red in Week 17.

Week 18 is one of the more challenging slates to navigate on the year, and if you are not going to be tuned into news up until kickoff or you are essentially setting your money on fire. This is because there are different levels of motivation, with some teams fighting for playoff spots, some teams with nothing to play for, and others somewhere in between.

With two Saturday games and one Sunday night game, players from the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Las Vegas Raiders, and Los Angeles Chargers will all be unavailable. This means Week 18 will be a relatively big slate, but as mentioned before there will be plenty of teams that will not be going all out with their starters.

When talking about players I will reference the salaries and salary cap of a typical FanDuel tournament. I will also show a complete sample lineup, which consists of nine positions: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, FLEX, and DEF.

Note that your individual strategy should change based on the type of contests you enter, though I will reference different strategies for both cash and tournament formats.

Without further ado, here are picks and FanDuel DFS advice for every position for Week 18 of the NFL season!
