NFL DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks for the 2020 week 15 Monday night football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals on December 21
Back again with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks. The week 15 Monday Night Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals football game, airs December 21 at 8:15PM ET on ESPN and the NFL Network. Check out the latest line below and onto the picks.
Latest line has the Steelers -14, Over/Under is 40 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Steelers and the over.
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Eric Ebron, Steelers TE ($6,400)
Last week, Ebron was held under 10 DK FPTS for just the 2nd time in the last 8 games. He only has 4 TD’s this season, but 3 since week 8. The Bengals Defense are pretty bad against opposing TE’s. In just the last few weeks they’ve been torched by Mike Gisecki and Evan Engram.
Some other captain options I like are the Steelers Defense and WR Chase Claypool.
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Tournament Flex Picks
Chase Claypool, Steelers WR ($8,600)
Chase recently burned me when I chose him at captain. He’s only scored 10 DK FPTS combined over his last 2 games. I like WR’s Ju Ju Smith-Schuster & Diontae Johnson in cash games, but I’ll take another shot with Claypool in a tourney.
Tee Higgins, Bengals WR (DK $7,200)
Higgins has been solid all year averaging 14.5 DK FPPG. He’s had at least 5 catches in every game except one since week 6. Bengals will very likely be playing from behind and throwing a lot. Similar to week 10, when they lost 36-10 to the Steelers. In that game, Higgins had 7 catches for 115 yards and a TD. This time he’s playing with QB Ryan Finley, so that probably won’t happen again. But also, maybe it will?
Steelers Defense ($7,200)
The Bengals Offense is 3rd worst in the NFL scoring just 18 PPG and 4th worst in total yards with 319 per game. This week they’ll be playing with 3rd string QB Ryan Finley and the Steelers Defense is averaging over 10 DK FPPG this season.
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1) NFL DFS DraftKings ST Value Pick
Trayveon Williams, Bengals RB ($1,200)
Williams led the team with 12 carries and 3 catches last game. Top RB Joe Mixon is still out, so Williams could see a similar amount of touches and is really cheap.
