NFL Monday Night DFS Showdown DraftKings Picks | GB vs ATL

Check out Jay’s NFL Monday Night DraftKings DFS showdown picks for the Green Bay Packers vs Atlanta Falcons game


So I play a lot of DFS (daily fantasy sports) and figured why not try an article. The plan was to do DraftKings picks for both Monday Night NFL games, but writing takes a lot of time and I ran out of it.


Showdown captains are 1.5x the price and receive 1.5 the points. A lot of times I like to take a shot with my captains when playing NFL and recently it’s been paying off.

I’ve been using a lot of WR’s and TE’s recently as my captains. Mostly because I don’t like picking the obvious QB/RB captain who will be owned by a huge percentage of players.

Obviously this doesn’t always work out, but it can pay off very nicely when it does. Check out the latest line and O/U for the game and then onto the picks.

GB -6, over/under is 56.5.


Packers vs Falcons: DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick

Captain -Robert Tonyan, Packers TE ($4,600)

This is one of those picks I was talking about above. I think Rodgers is too expensive at captain, especially with his usual WR’s out.

But there’s a lot of good captain options for this game with Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Aaron Jones, even Ridley or Julio (both will play), but I’m taking a shot here.

Tonyan has improved each week, going from 0 targets to 3 to 5 last week where he didn’t miss one and scored a TD.

That was good for 16 FPTS on DK last week and the Packers receiving corp is even more banged up this week. Allen Lazard recently went on the IR and Davante Adams is out again this week.

Also, the Falcons are pretty bad against TE’s this year and taking Tonyan at captain frees up A LOT of money. Plus, Packers TE Mercedes Lewis is doubtful.


Packers vs Falcons: Showdown Flex Picks

Flex- Aaron Rodgers, Packers QB ($11,400)

Rodgers has 9TDs with 0INTs this year, and the Falcons defense isn’t very good. He’s as must-start as they come IMO, even with a lack of receiving options.

Flex- Aaron Jones, Packers RB ($10,800)

Jones had 16 DK FPTS last week and that was his worst week this year. This could be a high scoring shootout but I like the Packers winning and maybe winning big. If that’s the case, Jones could get even more touches than normal. No matter what happens with the game, he’s as solid of a play as they come.

Flex- Matt Ryan, Falcons QB ($10,000)

Matty Ice has Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley back this week, so he should be set for a big game after last week’s letdown against the Bears.

Flex- Calvin Ridley, Falcons WR ($9,600)

It’s been confirmed that both Ridley and Jones will play tonight. Ridley is more expensive but he’s been incredible this season with all 3 games over 100 yards and already 4TDS.

Flex- Malik Taylor, Packers WR ($1,200)

Rodgers should throw the ball a lot tonight and Malik Taylor is one of their healthy WR’s. I don’t have much money left, so basically throwing a dart here.


And that’s my team for tonight. If I do this again, I’ll have more options and whatever else.

Like pointing out Darrius Shephard is another healthy GB WR and he’s the minimum $200 on DraftKings.

And that’s it for this week, best of luck and any feedback is appreciated.
