Free Agent Finds Heading Into Fantasy Football Playoffs

  • Dontrell Hilliard is owned in 40% of fantasy football leagues and hit the Over in his player prop odds in Week 12.
  • K.J. Osborn is owned in 4% of fantasy leagues.
  • Nyheim Hines is owned in 58% of fantasy leagues.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The fantasy football playoffs are quickly approaching and there are plenty of free agents to target including Dontrell Hilliard, K.J. Osborn, and Nyheim Hines.

One of the best ways to gauge fantasy value is through player prop odds that online betting sites list each week.

Dontrell Hilliard, RB, Tennessee Titans

While the Tennessee Titans have continued to look for Derrick Henry’s replacement, they have stumbled upon Dontrell Hilliard. Hilliard has put up an impressive past two games as the Titans starting running back with 16.2 and 18.3 fantasy points.

Hilliard showed off his receiving skills in Week 11 with 8 receptions on 10 targets. In Week 12, his rushing ability was showcased with 12 attempts for 131 yards and one touchdown.

Hilliard also had a good outing against his NFL player props in Week 12 against the New England Patriots as he went Over his 28.5-yard rushing total and Over his 0.5 touchdown total as well.

Hilliard will continue to start in place of Henry and should be added in all leagues that need answers at running back.

K.J. Osborn, WR, Minnesota Vikings

Osborn has shifted up to the WR2 spot for the Minnesota Vikings with Adam Thielen going down early in Week 13 with a high ankle sprain. Thielen was hurt in the Vikings first drive on offense in the first quarter which left Osborn the rest of the game to fill in.

Osborn finished the game seeing 7 targets, 4 receptions, 47 receiving yards, and one touchdown for 14.7 fantasy points. Osborn’s expectations were not high in this one as he had +285 odds to score a touchdown. Those odds are sure to lower as he will now be a weekly endzone threat.

With Thielen’s injury on the serious side, those in need of a replacement or a flex option should quickly add Osborn as he is owned in just 4% of fantasy leagues.

Nyheim Hines, RB, Indianapolis Colts

At this point in the season, all Jonathan Taylor owners should be flocking to add Hines in the event that Taylor goes down. Taylor is the overall RB1 this season and having his replacement would go a long way.

Hines already offers weekly Flex appeal being that he has seen 4+ targets in seven games this season. It is also worth noting that Hines has hit the Over for his receiving yards in his last two games.

With that, Hines should be added as a precautionary measure.
