DFS DraftKings showdown picks for the NFL 2021 conference playoff game on January 24 between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers
Back at it with more NFL DFS DraftKings showdown picks. The 2021 NFC championship playoff game between the Buccaneers and Packers airs January 24 at 3:05PM ET on Fox. Check out the line below and on to the picks.
Latest line has the Packers -3.5, Over/Under is 51.5 points. If I were a betting man, I’d take the Packers and the over.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) at Green Bay Packers (14-3) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Captain Pick
Aaron Rodgers, Packers QB (DK $11,200)
Rodgers has thrown for an incredible 50 TD’s with just 5 INT’s this season. Since week 12, he’s thrown 21 TD’s & 1 INT. His worst game of the year came against this Tampa Bay Defense in week 6. But it’s playoff time, I think he has a big game leading the Packers to a win.
Some other options I like at captain are Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin and and Packers WR Davante Adams,.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (13-5) at Green Bay Packers (14-3) NFL DFS DraftKings Showdown Flex Picks
Davante Adams, Packers WR ($11,600)
Adams has seen at least 9 targets in 12 out of 14 games this season. He’s got a ridiculous 19 TD’s, so obv he’s always a threat for a TD or 2 or 3. Tampa Bay Defense is near last in the NFL against opposing WR’s.
Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers RB ($8,400)
Ronald Jones II returned last week and had 13 carries but Fournette still had 17 carries with 5 catches and a TD. It’s possible Jones takes a higher percentage of the carries this week, I still like Fournette with his pass catching ability to fall back on.
Chris Godwin, Buccaneers WR ($7,800)
Godwin’s TD streak ended last week, he had 5 TD’s over his previous four games. He’s had at least 4 catches in each of his last five games. This week WR Antonio Brown is out, so Godwin could see even more looks.
Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers TE ($4,400)
Gronk is cheaper than he’s been all season on DK and rightfully so. He’s only had 1 catch over the last two weeks. But last week, he saw 5 targets and a few were in the red zone. He’s another that could get more looks with Brown out.
I like Gronk in tourneys. Everyone else listed, I like in cash games & tourneys.
Notes & Poll!
TB QB Tom Brady proved me wrong last week and he should have another good scoring game. With Antonio Brown out, WR Scotty Miller ($1,800) is another who could see more targets and is always a big play threat. GB RB Aaron Jones ($9,800) is facing the top rush defense in the NFL, but he has a pretty high floor due to his pass catching.
That’s it for now, best of luck out there and see you on the next edition of…
