This weekend marks the last time we get more than a two-game slate for daily fantasy rosters, and the divisional-round matchups start with what could be a low-scoring battle between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles, not unlike what we saw in Atlanta's wild-card game in Los Angeles last week.

Additionally, the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings will meet again after a Week 1 matchup to start the season. The Tennessee Titans are big underdogs in New England, but Marcus Mariota has done a good job of making games close this season. Finally, the Jacksonville Jaguars' meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers is the ultimate defense vs. offense matchup, but we'll think twice before going with any of Pittsburgh's big names in this one.

Here is a look at the best and worst fantasy matchups for the divisional round.
