SB Nation has a FanDuel league for the NFL Championship Round of the playoffs. This will be your final week to play during the football season -- go big or go home! Since there are only two games this week, I'm only going with two sleeper candidates.

Solid Sleeper Starts in NFL Championship Round
  • RB Jonas Gray ($5,300) - It is a bold move to go with Gray, who might not even be active for this game. Remember that his one and only breakout game this year came against Indianapolis, when he rushed for 201 yards and 4 touchdowns. Also, it's not likely that any of the big-name running backs have a big day, so picking Gray has two benefits: if he plays, you could get awesome production, and if he doesn't play, yourself ~$3000 to spend on other positions that might actually make a difference.

  • TE Luke Willson ($5,400) - The big ticket at tight end is Rob Gronkowski, who could very well have a monster game. If you're looking to save $3,000, strike while the iron is hit on Willson. The Seahawks tight end has been getting more involved with the offense and has shown a knack for getting open down the seam and even breaking tackles for big gains.

Do you have any sleepers or sits, Browns fans?
