DraftKings showdown picks for the NFL 2020 week 16 Monday (December 28) night football game between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots
Latest line has the Bills -7, Over/Under is 46 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Bills and the under.
Buffalo Bills (11-3) at New England Patriots (6-8) DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Zack Moss, Bills RB (DK $7,400)
Moss has had 26 carries over the last two games, compared to 15 for Devin Singletary. He had his best game of the season (14 rushes for 84 yards & 2 TD’S) against this Patriots Defense in week 8.
Some other captain options I like are a more obvious one in Bills WR Stefon Diggs and Patriots RB Sony Michel.
Buffalo Bills (11-3) at New England Patriots (6-8) DFS DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Josh Allen, Bills QB (DK $12,600)
Allen is having an amazing season and averaging a crazy 34.7 FPPG over his last 3 away games. But the Patriots Defense has given up just 1 passing TD with 5 INT’s over the last 4. They also held Allen to 13.5 FPTS in week 8, his lowest scoring game of the year on DK. So I don’t love him here, but I’m not fading him either.
Sony Michel, Patriots RB ($7,000)
Michel had 10 carries for 74 yards last week vs Miami with RB Damien Harris out. Harris is questionable so Michel could get another start. The Bills Defense is 21st in the league against the rush, last week they gave up 2 TD’s to Melvin Gordon.
Damiere Byrd, Patriots WR ($4,000)
WR Jakobi Meyers is coming off a big game but I think he’s a bit expensive at $7,200. Bills are good against WR’s and Newton is really inconsistent. Byrd has had at least 2 catches in every game since week 7. I’ll take a shot with him.
Buffalo Bills (11-3) at New England Patriots (6-8) DraftKings Value Pick
Dalton Keene, Patriots TE ($1,400)
Keene had 1 catch on 2 targets last week, playing more the half the snaps. The Bills Defense are bottom 5 against TE’s and this is just a tourney dart throw.
Notes & Stuff
I’m only doing 5 picks above and I try not to name too many obvious picks. But I’ll use this space when I can for some of those. Bills WR Stefon Diggs is averaging 21 DK FPPG this season and 30 FPPG over his last 2. He’s expensive ($11K) but I’ll be paying up for him over WR Cole Beasley ($10K), who the Pats shut down for 23 yards in week 8.
Patriots QB Cam Newton is scheduled to start, but could lose snaps to backup QB Jarrett Stidham, with the Pats out of the playoff hunt. Cam is very cheap this week at 9K tho. Bills K Tyler Bass is averaging 10 DK FPPG this season and 13 FPPG since week 7.
