NFL DraftKings showdown tournament picks for the Minnesota Vikings (3-5) at Chicago Bears (5-4) Monday night football game on November 16, 2020
Welcome all, I’m back again with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown tournament picks. This time for the Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears week 10 Monday night game on November 16th, airing at 8:15PM ET on ESPN.
Latest line has the Vikings -2.5, Over/Under is 43.5 points.
These picks are made ahead of time, so be sure to check the latest injury reports.
Minnesota Vikings (3-5) at Chicago Bears (5-4) NFL DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Dalvin Cook, Vikings RB (DK $13,600)
He’s very expensive and facing a good defense, but he’s been incredible lately. Since returning in week 8, he’s averaging a ridiculous 47 DK FPPG.
If I were making a risky captain pick, I’d take a shot with Chi WR Cordelle Patterson.
Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Nick Foles, Bears QB (DK $9,800)
Foles is averaging 21 DK FPPG over his last two games. Now he’s facing the Vikings Defense, who are 3rd worst in the NFL against the pass, giving up 288 yards per game.
Justin Jefferson, Vikings WR ($8,600)
The Bears Defense are 7th in the NFL against the pass, giving up just 218 yards per game. Jefferson and WR Adam Thielen haven’t done much since Cook’s return. I don’t love this pick but he’s cheaper than Thielen and has a lot of upside. Twice this season, he’s scored over 33 DK FPTS.
Jimmy Graham, Bears TE ($7,200)
Graham had 6 catches last week on 6 targets for 55 yards and a TD. His targets have been steady over the past few weeks and the Vikings are really bad against TE’s.
Cordelle Patterson, Bears WR ($5,200)
The versatile Patterson could lead the Chicago backfield in rushes this week with RB David Montgomery out. The Vikings Defense isn’t very good against the rush, giving up 125 yards per game.
Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears DraftKings Showdown Value Picks
Anthony Miller, Bears WR ($4,800)
Miller has 13 catches on 19 targets over the last 2 games. This week he faces the awful Vikings defense and top Chi WR Allen Robinson is questionable.
Cairo Santos, Bears K ($3,800)
He’s only missed 2 FG’s all season, kicked a few over 50 and has over 13 DK FPTS in 2 of his last 4 games.
Kyle Rudolph, Vikings TE ($3,400)
TE Irv Smith Jr has been ruled out, so Rudolph could see more targets than normal. The Bears have a top 10 overall defense but they’ve struggled against TE’s this year.
