DFS DraftKings showdown picks for the NFL 2020 week 16 Saturday game between the Miami Dolphins at Las Vegas Raiders on December 26
Latest line has the Dolphins -3, Over/Under is 47.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Dolphins and the over.
Miami Dolphins (9-5) at Las Vegas Raiders (7-7) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Lynn Bowden Jr., Dolphins WR (DK $4,600)
Bowden has 13 catches on 16 targets over the last 2 games. WR’s DeVanta Parker, Jakeem Grant and TE Mike Gisecki are all questionable. Obviously, I’d like Bowden a lot more if they’re all out. The Raiders Defense have given up 7 TD’s to opposing WR’s over the last 4 games and 17 this year.
Some other captain options I like are more obvious in Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa, RB Miles Gaskin, and Raiders TE Darren Waller.
Miami Dolphins (9-5) at Las Vegas Raiders (7-7) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Darren Waller, Raiders TE (DK $10,600)
Waller has been incredible lately. He’s had over 150 receiving yards in 2 out of his last 3 games and averaging a ridiculous 32 DK FPPG over that time. He’s a must start in cash games for me and tough to fade in tourneys.
Derek Carr, Raiders QB ($10,000)
Carr is set to return but coach Gruden hasn’t announced who will start at QB yet. I think the uncertainty could have Carr’s ownership low (for a captain in a showdown). The same goes for QB Marcus Mariota if Carr sits. So I like whoever gets the start in tourneys and Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa a lot more in cash games.
Miles Gaskin, Dolphins RB ($8,400)
Gaskin was recently activated off the COVID-19 list and will return against the Raiders. The Raiders Defense has given up 8 TD’s over the last 5 games to opposing RB’s and 17 all season. I like him in tourneys and cash games. Last week I had Josh Jacobs at captain and he scored over 20 DK FPTS. I don’t like him here tho. The Dolphins Defense have allowed zero TD’s and held opposing teams to under 80 rushing in each of the last 4 games.
Henry Ruggs III, Raiders WR ($5,200)
Ruggs is another who just came off the COVID list. He could return this week, but it hasn’t been confirmed. I’ll take a shot with him in tourneys if he plays and I like WR Nelson Agholor in cash games.
Miami Dolphins (9-5) at Las Vegas Raiders (7-7) DraftKings Showdown Value Picks
Bryan Edwards, Raiders WR ($200)
Coach Gruden said Edwards could get more opportunities over the last two games. And at $200, that’s all I need to take a shot in a tourney.
For value in cash games, I like the Dolphins Defense and K Jason Sanders who is averaging over 10 DK FPPG.
