DraftKings showdown tournament picks for the NFL 2021 Wild Card playoff game on January 9 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Washington Football Team
Back again with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown picks. The 2021 Wild Card playoff game between the Buccaneers and Washington Football Team airs January 9 at 8:15PM ET on the NFL Network. Check out the line below and on to the picks.
Latest line has the Bucs -8.5, Over/Under is 45.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Bucs and the under.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5) at Washington Football Team (7-9) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
J.D McKissic, Wash RB (DK $8,100)
J.D is coming off his worst game since week 12, and now he’s facing the #1 rush defense in the NFL. So I don’t expect his overall ownership to be very high. Washington will likely be playing from behind and throwing more than normal, which could lead to a lot of catches, yards and maybe a TD or two for J.D.
Some other options I like at captain is a cheap one in Wash WR Cam Sims, and an obvious one in TB QB Tom Brady.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11-5) at Washington Football Team (7-9) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Tom Brady, Buccaneers QB ($10,800)
Brady had a great year and an awesome finish with 12 TD’s & 1 INT over his last four games. He’s averaging a whopping 33.6 DK FPPG over his last two.
Ronald Jones III, Buccaneers RB ($7,200)
Jones had a solid game in his return last week, 12 carries for 78 yards & a TD. He’s facing a great Washington Defense but they haven given up a TD to opposing RB’s in 3 out of their last 4 games.
Tampa Bay Defense ($4,800)
Alex Smith struggled to move around and threw 2 more INT’s in his return last week. He now has 8 this year with just 6 TD’s. Top RB Antonio Gibson & top WR Terry McLaurin also aren’t fully healthy. At the moment, all 3 are questionable but likely to play. I think this game could get ugly fast and TB Defense could put up a lot of points.
Cam Sims, Wash WR ($4,400)
Sims has caught 13 passes over his last 3 games on 22 targets and now his DK price is the lowest it’s been since week 12. Washington should be throwing a lot, McLaurin isn’t 100% and the Tampa Bay Defense has given up 17 TD’s this season to opposing WR’s.
