With two games on Saturday, you can get onto DraftKings and put together a lineup looking to win some early Christmas cash.

The Cincinnati Bengals head to Pittsburgh for a key game in the AFC playoff race and then later, the Buffalo Bills take on the Los Angeles Chargers. Using the allotted budget as best we can, we will help you set those DFS lineups right here.

This looks like a slate where players are going to be heavy on Bills players but you have to keep in mind that many of them will be thinking the same thing, so if you want a chance to hit big, you'll need to dig deep for options.

Deep sleepers options for today's slate include Bills wide receiver Khalil Shakir ($3500), Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton ($3200) and Bengals wide receiver Andrei Iosivas ($3000). Those are the kinds of players who won't cost you much and if they have a big performance, will likely be lightly owned.

Looking at the full slate, here are the best value plays for Saturday.

Mason Rudolph, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers- $4800

The quarterback position has been an adventure for the Steelers this season, and that's putting it nicely. Both Kenny Pickett and Mitch Trubisky have largely struggled in that role, prompting the team to now turn to its third QB this season, Mason Rudolph.

This would be a daring move for your lineup, but for $4800, it could pay off. Josh Allen, who will easily be the most-owned player on the slate, will cost $3100 more.

Rudolph is an experienced quarterback who has made 10 career starts, completing 61.5 percent of his throws and tossing 16 touchdown passes.

The Steelers will be inside the friendly confines of their home field for this game and in a must-win situation for them, Rudolph could rise to the occasion and put your DFS lineup in a strong position.
