Remember how we used to bash that rookie from Chicago? Well Justin Fields had a breakout game on the road in Pittsburgh, and we told you to start him in your lineups. He threw for 291 yards and a touchdown, and also ran for 45 yards. Nothing spectacular, but was in a lot of cashing lineups.
As we wrap up week ten, two NFC West teams battle in the Bay Area tonight as the Rams take on the Forty-Niners. L.A. will look to rebound from an embarrassing loss last Sunday to Tennessee at home. Quarterback Matt Stafford threw back to back picks to start the game, one in which was a pick-six, and was never able to recover that night.
San Fransisco is also coming off an upset loss last week, when Arizona put their practice squad on the field and manhandled them on the road 31-17. Jimmy Garoppolo and company will also look to get back on track. Including wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who has finally began to show signs of his rookie campaign where he led the team in receptions with 60.
Here’s a look at a NFL DFS Monday Night Showdown Core (LAR @ SF) – Week 10 (using DraftKings Values)
Here’s What You Get If You Sign Up For $99 For Six Months
- Who we like in the Captain/MVP slot
- Who to Fade
- Other studs we like
- Value to roster at Flex
- General Strategy
- All access for all sports for up to six months for $99
Cooper Kupp ($12,000 DK/$16,000 FD) Is having the best year of his career, leading the league with 74 receptions for 1,019 yards from the wide receiver position. Now that the Rams have lost fellow receiver Robert Woods for the year with an ACL tear, and newly signed Odell Beckham Jr. still needing time to become familiar with the Rams’ offense, Kupp is the last man standing. He is the most expensive tonight, but we will need to pay up in case he does have another explosive performance.
Who to Fade:
Odell Beckham Jr. ($7,400 DK/$10,000 FD) The Diva has landed in LA, but before we can start him, he needs to become acclimated with Sean McVeigh’s playbook, which may take a couple games. Odell may have a few plays drawn up for him tonight, but you would be treading on thin ice with him in your lineups.
Other Studs We Like:
George Kittle ($11,000 DK/$10,500 FD) Fresh off IR the stud tight end picked up right where he left off catching six of eight passes for 101 yards and a touchdown last week against the Cardinals. L.A. has been fruitful as they rank twentieth in the league for FPTS. to opposing tight ends.
Darrell Henderson Jr. ($9,200 DK/$12,000 FD) The Niners have been gashed all season by opposing running backs and rank twenty-first in the NFL, so Henderson may be in a nice spot if L.A. builds a large enough lead and decide to run it out in the second half.
Eli Mitchell ($6,400 DK/$11,500 FD) Is the feature back in the San Fransisco carousel at that position, and has clearly taken over the job. Eli has averaged double digit fantasy points coming out of the bye and has started to be used in the passing game as well. The Rams are tough to throw on but have been beatable by running backs this season.
Van Jefferson ($5,400 DK/$8,000 FD) Will line up as Stafford’s second wide receiver tonight, in the absence of the injured Robert Woods. OBJ will take over as the second option alongside Kupp eventually, but until than it will be Jefferson, who lines up on the outside, and has beatable corners tonight for a big play down the field or two.
Jeff Wilson Jr. ($1,200 DK/$5,000 FD) Not many ways to go for bargains tonight except for the remaining running backs in San Fran. Wilson Jr. is back from a meniscus tear he suffered last year but has yet to take a snap. With JaMycal Hasty out, he has moved up the depth charts to the number two slot. Wilson is an excellent pass catcher and may get some third down usage, as well as Kyle Juszczyk ($2,000 DK/$5,500 FD).
The Rams and Niners are both coming off disappointing performances last week, so there should be a decent amount of fantasy value on both sides. We need to decide who will come out with the win and than set our showdowns accordingly. With the amount of firepower and defensive presence on the Rams, we need to focus on a winning lineup using their key pieces, Kupp and Stafford are an obvious and chalky play, it’s just a matter of sprinkling in a few Niners to even out the strategy tonight.
