Thursday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Lineup Tips for Week 6 Buccaneers-Eagles Showdown Tournaments

| Sport News Today | Yahoo news

The Eagles welcome the Buccaneers to the City of Brotherly Love for their Thursday night football matchup of Week 6. The sportsbooks opened the matchup with totals up to 53 and Tampa with 7.5 points. Vegas totals, and some of the advanced metrics, paint the picture of a high-scoring affair. That could certainly be the case, but given Tom Brady’s (minor) thumb injury, it’s worth considering scenarios where the Bucs ease the burden on Brady by relying on his running game. We’re confident in that playing our Captain pick for this DraftKings Showdown lineup, but as with all NFL DFS rosters, our picks cover a variety of potential producers.

Here are the scoring adjustments you should know about for DraftKings matchups: Full point PPR, and here they are three-point bonuses for 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards, and 100 receiving yards. The Captain’s pick costs 1.5 times a player’s original price, but also gets their total points multiplied by 1.5.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Buccaneers vs. Eagles

$ 50,000 budget, at least one player from each team is needed.

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

There are many reasons why I like Fournette as a Captain in this place. First, Tom Brady is taking care of a sore thumb. While it’s not an injury that will sideline him, it’s reasonable to expect the coaching staff to handle it responsibly in a short week. Fournette leads the team in touches and has earned a respectable 10.9 percent of team goals. He’s surpassed the 100-yard plateau in consecutive weeks and found the clown in Week 5. Considering the Eagles’ 23rd place in the rush DVOA, the Buccaneers should be able to find running lanes if they lean toward the ground. -and-pound approach.

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

The price of Brady as Captain is simply too high considering the ailment of the thumb that will suffer. Brady has surpassed 30 DraftKings points in four of the five contests 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 walking away from him altogether. Whether he’s physically limited or managed through a conservative game plan, Brady should still be able to threaten 25 DK points.

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

Hurts has a 30-point lead and will likely be asked to use his legs and arm to move the Eagles’ offense, especially considering the struggle the Eagles are likely to have to get their backfield going. Remember, Tampa Bay has deployed one of the best running defenses in the game since 2019. The Eagles have rushed only 36.9 percent of their plays, and Hurts has accounted for 38.1 percent of those attempts. The greater the incentive to get the ball into 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 pin down the wide receiver’s weekly winner in this offense. Chris Godwin may be “due” if he believes in it, but he is dealing with knee and ankle injuries that have limited him in practice this week. Brown has been a reliable and explosive target for Brady this season, hitting a pair of 100-yard games and racking up three touchdowns. If Godwin is held back by his ailments, Brown is more than capable of handling a few additional goals Thursday night.

WEEK 6 STANDARD RATINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

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

Tight ends have accounted for 25.7 percent of the Eagles’ goals this season. Given that Dallas Goedert is likely to miss out on this week’s contest while on COVID-19 / reserve, Ertz may receive an increase in usage. He has averaged seven goals in his last three games after adding four in the first two.

WEEK 6 PPR RANKINGS:
Field marshal | Running backwards | Wide receiver | Tight end | D / ST | Kicker

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

We don’t like to bet on running backs against the Buccaneers’ solid running defense, but Gainwell is more of a “satellite” running back than someone who will be asked to hit him between innings 15-20 times. Gainwell is third in the Eagles’ touches and has been more efficient than his higher-profile, price-conscious backfield teammate Miles Sanders. In fact, Gainwell has been the most efficient running back in several areas, and if he can get another 10 more touches – something he’s done twice this season – he could deliver a profitable DK score.
