Sport News Thursday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Line-Up Tips for Buccaneers-Eagles Showdown Week 6 Tournaments

Sports news

The Eagles welcome the Buccaneers to the City of Brotherly Love for the Thursday night football showdown of Week 6. Sportsbooks opened the game with totals as high as 53 and Tampa with 7.5 points. Vegas totals – and some of the advanced metrics – paint a picture of a high scoring affair. It certainly could, but given Tom Brady’s (minor) thumb injury, but it’s worth considering scenarios where the Bucs lighten the load on Brady by relying on their running game. We’re counting on that with our choice of captain for this DraftKings Showdown lineup, but as with all NFL DFS rosters, our picks cover a range of potential producers.

Here are the score settings to know for DraftKings Showdowns: PPR full point, and there is Three-point bonus for 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards, and 100 receiving yards. Choosing the captain costs 1.5 times a player’s original price, but he also gets his point total multiplied by 1.5.

DraftKings Showdown Pick: Buccaneers vs. Eagles

Budget of $ 50,000, need at least one player from each team.

Captain (1.5x value, 1.5x points): RB Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers ($ 11,700)

There are a lot of reasons to love Fournette as a captain at this location. First off, Tom Brady treats a sore thumb. While it won’t be an injury that will put him on the sidelines, it’s reasonable to expect the coaching staff to handle him responsibly over a short week. Fournette leads the team in touch and has a respectable 10.9 percent of the team’s goals. He broke the 100 total yard mark in consecutive weeks and found some dirt in Week 5. Given the Eagles’ No.23 ranking in peak DVOA, the Buccaneers should be able to find running tracks if they lean over a ground. approach -and-book.

FLEX: QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers ($ 12,400)

The price Brady will pay as captain is just too high considering the thumb disease he will suffer. Brady has passed 30 DraftKings points in four of five competitions this season – including 40.7 in Week 5. There are simply too many weapons at Brady’s disposal and methods by which he can produce to justify quitting. ‘he turns away from him completely. Whether he’s physically limited or managed by a Tory game plan, Brady should still be able to threaten 25 DK points.

FLEX: QB Jalen Hurts, Eagles ($ 11,800)

Hurts is 30 points clear and will likely be called upon to use his legs and arm to shift the Eagles offense, especially given the struggle the Eagles are likely to have to make their backfield work. Remember, Tampa Bay has fielded one of the best defenses in the game since 2019. The Eagles rushed just 36.9% of their plays, and Hurts accounted for 38.1% of those attempts. The more incentive there is to place the ball in Hurts’ hands, the better.

FLEX: WR Antonio Brown, Buccaneers ($ 8,200)

As we’ve discussed with the Buccaneers this season, it will be difficult to determine the weekly wide receiver winner in this offense. Chris Godwin might be ‘due’ if you believe it, but he suffers from knee and ankle injuries that have limited him to training this week. Brown has been a reliable and explosive target for Brady this season, scoring two 100-yard games and recording three scores. If Godwin is held back by his ailments, Brown is more than capable of handling a few more targets on Thursday night.

quarterback | Back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

FLEX: TE Zach Ertz, Eagles ($ 3,200)

Tight ends have been 25.7% of the Eagles’ goals this season. With Dallas Goedert likely to miss this week’s contest while on COVID-19 / reserve, Ertz is expected to receive a slight uptick in usage. He’s averaged seven targets in his last three games after totaling four in the first two.

quarterback | Back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

FLEX: RB Kenneth Gainwell, Eagles ($ 2,400)

We don’t like betting on running backs against the Buccaneers’ strong run defense, but Gainwell is more of a “satellite” back than someone who is going to be asked to hit him between tackles 15-20 times. Gainwell is third on the Eagles in touches and has been more effective than his higher – and high-priced fieldmate – Miles Sanders. Gainwell has actually been the most efficient back in a number of areas, and if he can collect more than 10 extra touches – something he’s done twice this season – he could provide a profitable DK score.
