DFS DraftKings showdown picks for the NFL 2021 playoff game on January 17 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints

Back at it with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown picks. The 2021 playoff game between the Buccaneers and Saints airs January 17 at 6:40PM ET on the NFL Network. Check out the line below and on to the picks.

Latest line has the Saints -3, Over/Under is 52 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Saints and the over.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12-5) at New Orleans Saints (13-4) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick

Drew Brees, Saints QB (DK $9,800)

Brees had 3 TD’s & 3 INT’s in his first two games back from the IR. In his last two games, he’s thrown 5 TD’s with 0 INT’s. He’s playing at home, has all of weapons and facing a Tampa Bay Defense that is near the bottom of the NFL against the pass. Brees has thrown 6 TD’s w/ 0 INT’s in two games against them this year.

Some other options I like at captain are Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin and a cheaper/riskier one in Saints WR Deonte Harris.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (12-5) at New Orleans Saints (13-4) NFL DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks

Michael Thomas, Saints WR ($10,600)

Thomas had a solid return last week with 5 catches for 73 yards & a TD. The Tampa Bay Defense held him to 8 catches for 68 yards & 0 TD’s in 2 games combined this year. But I think he’ll have a good and maybe great game here.

Chris Godwin, Buccaneers WR ($8,200)

Godwin has 5 TD’s over his last four games. He’s had 5 catches in each of his last three and was targeted 12x in last weeks opening playoff game.

Ronald Jones III, Buccaneers WR ($7,000)

I’m sure many people like myself took Jones last week and weren’t too happy about him sitting all game. I’m afraid that could happen again here. But that should keep his ownership down, maybe WAY down. So I’d take a shot on him a tourney.

(If I don’t mention tourneys, it just means I like that player in tourneys and cash games)

Emmanuel Sanders, Saints WR ($5,800)

Sanders was shut down last week, he had just 2 catches for 3 yards. Deonte Harris returned and had his best game of the year with 7 catches on 7 targets for 83 yards. Sanders only has 5 TD’s this year but 2 of them came against Tampa Bay. I’d take a shot with either in a tourney.

Notes, Polls & Stuff

Saints RB Alvin Kamara struggled against the TB Defense in terms of yards this year, but he did score 3 TD’s. Bucs QB Tom Brady had 5 INT’s (only 12 all year) in two games vs the Saints.

Which QB(s) are you starting?
