With the NFL season down to the final week, managers are looking for replacements in their lineups that will kill off their season. Options are available from only two teams– the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams.
At this point, setting up your line up for the NFL playoff challenge is a tricky affair. To help you out, below are the best experts’ pick for the playoff challenge.
One of the players experts are rooting on is Tom Brady. Brady will be making his ninth appearance in the Superbowl. He has completed 65.8 % of his passes, 18 touchdowns, and over five interceptions. These stats are based on his past 8 games. He has averaged over 300 yards a game.
In the last two appearances in the super bowl, Tom Brady threw 505 yards with 3 touchdowns, when the Patriots lost to the Eagles at Super Bowl LII. At super bowl LI, Brady threw 466 yards in the process winning two touchdowns. His efforts helped the team beat the Falcons.
Another top pick is Julian Edelman, a patriot’s receiver. He is a safe pick courtesy of his consistency. Julian has received more than double-digit targets in as many as eight games. He has also averaged 6 catches per 70 yards throws in the eight games.
Tom Brady and Edelman have formed a good partnership. The two have achieved 16 receptions that have exceeded 240 yards.
The last six weeks in the lead up to the super bowl week has seen Edelman receive double-digit targets in five games. He managed 42 catches and 3 touchdowns for about 652 yards.
