DraftKings showdown picks for the NFL 2021 week 17 Sunday (January 3) night football game between the Washington Football Team and Philadelphia Eagles
Back again with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown picks. The week 17 Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles game airs January 3 at 8:20PM ET on the NFL Network. Check out the line below and on to the picks.
Latest line has the Washington -1.5, Over/Under is 43.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take Washington and the under.
Washington Football Team (6-9) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-10-1) DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Logan Thomas, Washington TE (DK $7,800)
Thomas has 20 catches on 28 targets over the last two games. He’s averaging over 18 DK FPPG over his last five (11 PPG for the season). One of his 5 TD’s this year came in week one against this Eagles Defense.
Some other captain options I like are a more obvious one in Eagles QB Jalen Hurts and a cheap one in Eagles RB Boston Scott.
Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles DFS DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Jalen Hurts, Eagles QB ($11,400)
Hurts is averaging 29.6 DK FPPG over his last 3 games. He’s facing a tough Washington Defense and he’s expensive, but he’s got a lot of upside due to his rushing ability.
Antonio Gibson, Washington RB ($9,000)
Gibson is questionable but he played with the same injury last week so he should be good to go. RB J.D McKissic has been great over the last month or so and has a TD in each of his last two games. I figure Gibson will be lesser owned of the two, so I like him in tourneys and JD more in cash games.
Zach Ertz, Eagles TE ($4,600)
Ertz only has 5 catches over his last two games, but he was targeted 14 times. Top TE Dallas Goedert is likely out again so he could see even more opportunities in what could be his last game as an Eagle. Ertz only has 1 TD this year but it came against this Washington Defense.
Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles DFS DraftKings Showdown Value Pick
Boston Scott, Eagles RB ($1,400)
Starting RB Miles Sanders is expected to miss the game, according to reports. Washington Defense is very good against opposing RB’s, but Scott could see a lot of touches here and he’s really cheap.
Notes & Stuff
Wash WR Terry McLaurin is questionable but likely to play. He was held under 25 rec yards in 2 of his last 3 games and he’s expensive. I’d take a shot on him in tourneys if the currently questionable QB Alex Smith plays. The Eagles Defense is near the bottom of the league against WR’s.
