The Cardinals and Rams meet up with for the third time this period, but this time, it will be a win-or-go-residence playoff predicament on Monday evening. The Rams’ facet of matters has a good deal of DFS possibilities with higher upside, and we’re going with a Rams’ onslaught in our DraftKings event lineup. Cooper Kupp will be the most preferred captain decide, and for good explanation, but we are heading somewhere else to differentiate our picks in GPP tournaments.
Listed here are the essential options for DraftKings solitary-recreation contests: It’s complete-position PPR, and there are 3-stage bonuses for 300 passing yards, 100 dashing yards, and 100 getting yards. The Captain select fees 1.5 periods a player’s authentic rate, but he also receives his position complete multiplied by 1.5.
A lot more DK SHOWDOWN: How to get a Showdown contest
DraftKings Showdown Picks: Cardinals vs. Rams
$50,000 spending plan, require at the very least a single player from every single team.
Captain: (1.5x income, 1.5x factors): WR Van Jefferson, Rams ($7,800)
There most likely will never be a ton of teams with Jefferson as captain, but he could realistically be the maximum scorer. He is nevertheless traveling under the radar in DFS and in actual lifetime, so with all the attention on Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr., the hope right here is Jefferson gets free on a few deep pictures from the Arizona secondary that makes it possible for the fourth-most DK points to WRs. He has the identical upside as OBJ and is about $2,500 less costly.
FLEX: QB Matthew Stafford, Rams ($10,800)
Stafford might be functioning out of likelihood to confirm he can get matters carried out in massive online games, so we are going to lender on him at last breaking as a result of with an explosive passing day, earning his first occupation playoff “W.” He reached at the very least 20.3 DK factors in equally matchups with Arizona and threw 5 touchdowns to just 1 interception in all those online games.
FLEX: WR Cooper Kupp, Rams ($13,000)
We’re not fading Kupp entirely because it’s rough to consider the profitable lineup is not going to have him in it. The Jefferson at captain assortment as component of the Stafford-Kupp-Jefferson stack offers us viability with a minor bit of creativity. Kupp’s 2021 resume speaks for by itself.
FLEX: TE Zach Ertz, Cardinals ($6,200)
Ertz has strike double-figure DK factors in just about every of his earlier 4 video games, without the need of scoring any touchdowns. He’s caught at least six passes and averaged around 10 targets/sport throughout that stretch. Los Angeles is just a center-of-the-street protection against limited ends, so we assume Ertz’s creation to be there, and a landing could have him knocking on the door of 20 factors.
FLEX: RB Chase Edmonds, Cardinals ($5,000)
Edmonds (ribs, toe) is envisioned to enjoy, and he is a ideal value selection for comprehensive-PPR scoring. His salary is particularly generous supplied his upside, even with James Conner back again in the lineup. He should see double-digit carries and five or additional targets, so a couple of explosive plays would make him a viable DFS perform.
FLEX: Los Angeles Rams D/ST ($3,800)
Versus the significant-driven Cardinals offense, this shouldn’t be a chalky collection. However, we are counting on a powerful Rams defensive surge against a scorching and chilly Kyler Murray. The offense has not been quite the exact with no DeAndre Hopkins and in between interceptions, fumbles, and sacks, it has surrendered lots of fantasy factors to D/STs recently. Does not this feel like a classic spot for an Aaron Donald classic efficiency?
