NFL DFS DraftKings showdown picks for the 2020 week 16 Christmas day game between the Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints on December 25
Back again with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown picks. The week 16 Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints game, airs on Christmas, December 25 at 4:30PM ET on FOX and the NFL Network. Check out the latest line below and onto the picks.
Latest line has the Saints -7, Over/Under is 52 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Saints and the under.
Minnesota Vikings (6-8) at New Orleans Saints (10-4) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Adam Thielen, Vikings WR (DK $8,600)
Thielen only has 5 catches over his last two games and now he’s facing a really good Saints Defense. I like WR Justin Jefferson a lot more in cash games but I’ll take a shot on Thielen in tourneys.
Some other captain options I like are mostly boring, either of the RB’s or QB’s. And a crazy cheap one in WR Marquez Callaway, you can stack a lot of top options using him.
Minnesota Vikings (6-8) at New Orleans Saints (10-4) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Dalvin Cook, Vikings RB (DK $12,000)
Cook has been amazing with 16 TD’s and almost 1500 yards this year. The Saints Defense have given up 267 rushing yards and 3 TD’s over the past two weeks.
Alvin Kamara, Saints RB ($11,400)
Most people including myself expected a bigger game from Kamara last week. He had some huge games this year with WR Michael Thomas out. Still, he put up 18 DK FPTS, so it was a good game, just not great. Now he’s facing a Vikings Defense that just gave up 146 rushing yards and 2 TD’s to Bears RB David Montgomery.
Irv Smith Jr., Vikings TE ($5,200)
Smith has 7 catches with a TD over his last two games with Kyle Rudolph out. (Update- Rudolph has been ruled out again) and the cheaper Vikings TE Tyler Conklin has been better than Smith Jr. So I figure his ownership will be low, and that’s mostly why I’ll take a shot on him in a tourney.
Minnesota Vikings (6-8) at New Orleans Saints (10-4) NFL DFS DraftKings Value Pick
Marquez Callaway, Saints WR ($200)
Callaway was just removed the IR and could return on Friday. I’d def take a shot on him for just $200 in a tourney if he plays. In week seven, he had 8 catches for 75 yards.
(Update- Callaway is set to play & WR Tre’Quan Smith is out)
Notes & Stuff
I didn’t mention the QB’s, I like Brees more in cash games and Cousins in a tourney. Both QB’s are much cheaper than the top RB’s, so guessing ownership is harder than normal. Will Brees have more ownership than Kamara? I think he could, but we’ll see.
