NFL DraftKings showdown tournament picks for the Los Angeles Rams (6-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) Week 11 Monday night football game
Latest line has the Bucs -4, Over/Under is 48.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Rams and the under.
Los Angeles Rams (6-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) NFL DraftKings Showdown Tournament Captain Pick
Josh Reynolds, Rams WR (DK $6,800)
Reynolds targets have increased each game since week 5. Against Seattle last game, he had 10 targets with 8 catches for 94 yards. He also has 2 TD’s over his last 4 games. I’m hoping the Tampa Bay Defense, 3rd in the NFL giving up just 300 total yards a game, focuses on the other LA WR’s Cooper Kupp & Robert Woods. Both are more expensive than Reynolds and will likely be much higher owned.
Some other options I like at captain are LA QB Jared Goff and TB WR Antonio Brown.
Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers DraftKings Showdown Tournament Flex Picks
Jared Goff, Rams QB (DK $9,800)
Goff is facing a great defense and hasn’t scored over 20 DK FPTS in a game since week 5. I don’t expect him to be highly owned, so this is mostly a contrarian play. He has been much better in away games this season, averaging 23 DK FPPG compared to 14 DK FPPG at home.
Antonio Brown, Bucs WR ($7,800)
Brown had 7 catches on 8 targets for 69 yards last week, after 3 catches on 5 targets for 31 yards in his first game with Tampa. I’m hoping this trend continues here and I don’t expect his ownership to be high. I figure most who play a TB WR here will go with Mike Evans or Chris Godwin.
Rob Grownkowski, Bucs TE ($6,200)
Gronk has only caught 3 passes over his last 2 games, and now he’s facing the #2 overall Rams Defense giving up just 18 PPG. So I expect his ownership to be low here. But he’s got 4 TD’s over his last 5 and averaging 13 DK FPPG over that time, after only avg 5 DK FPPG in his first 5 this year.
Los Angeles Rams at Tampa Bay Buccaneers DraftKings Showdown Tournament Value Picks
Leonard Fournette, Bucs RB (DK $4,400)
I’m likely going to fade Ronald Jones II at $8,800 against the Rams top 5 rush defense. Jones went off last week and should be highly owned here. Fournette has scored over 10 DK FPTS in 3 of his last 4, I might take a shot with him.
Ryan Succop, Bucs K ($4,000)
Succop is averaging 10 DK FPPG this season and I think he’ll have another good scoring game here.
Cam Akers, Rams RB ($2,800)
I don’t like any of the Rams RB’s against Tampa’s #1 NFL rush defense. But I might take a shot on Akers, he’s had at least 9 carries and 35 yards in each of his last 2 games.
Gerald Everett, Rams TE ($2,600)
Everett has had at least 2 catches in each of his last 5 games. He’s averaging a solid 9 DK FPPG over that time.
