Week 16 gives us an impressive appetizer of Saturday’s games in 3D slate like Thanksgiving. This gives you an extra chance to play NFL DFS contests at DraftKings on December 21st, especially if you are overwhelmed by your fantasy playoffs. With the Buccaneers and Texans kicking the action away, there should be plenty of grade.
We have invested heavily in potential locations from Houston and the Tampa Bay, avoiding mainly what should be a low scoring affair between Buffalo and New England. The lineup gets finished with the strong investment in the Rams-49ers, too, in a game that will have to stay close to pay off.
WEEK 16 RATING NO PRESENCE:
Quarterback | Running back Wide receiver Tight end D / ST | Kicker
DraftKings Saturday NFL DFS Options: Tournament variation
QB Jameis Winston, Buccaneers vs. Texans ($ 6,900). In a game that should easily have the highest score on the plate, Winston probably offers a higher upside than Deshaun Watson because of Tampa Bay’s insistence that he fly deep into the court, regardless of distance, distance or score. Winston, who scatters him for four quarters against a bad secondary Houston, should lead to a lot more positive than negative, even with his WRs coming up lame.
RB Raheem Mostert, 49ers vs. Rams ($ 6,100). Mostert’s had three consecutive weeks in charge of the back of San Francisco, so hopefully Kyle Shanahan doesn’t change his mind now. Mostert can have the most playing ability of any RB on the plate and besides Aaron Donald, the Rams’ defense is running.
Seminar 16 Degrees PPR: Running Back Wide Receiver | Tight end
RB Sony Michel, Patriots vs. Bills ($ 4,600). As long as the Patriots do nothing strange, Michel comes at a value for a player who should see double-digit scoring and some goals with goals in a solid offense.
WR DeAndre Hopkins, Texans @ Buccaneers ($ 8,500). Hopkins’ ownership will be high if Chris Godwin (hamstring) is out, thanks to the lack of other players in his pricing stratosphere. That’s good – he should have a great game on an exchange of shots.
WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:
FD Cash | FD GPP | DK cash Y! Cash Y! GPP
WR Justin Watson, Buccaneers vs. Texans ($ 4,600). The other bronze receiver on this plate may be Breshad Perriman who is coming out of his three days and we will get a chance and fade him. Watson should see eight to 10 goals against Perriman and produce, especially in DK’s PPR rating.
WR Ishmael Hyman, Buccaneers vs. Texans ($ 3,000). Hyman should look at three WR sets for the Buccaneers if Godwin and Scotty Miller (hamstring) are both out, and in a game with so many points and passing yards possible for the Bucs, the minimum price its gonna look like I’m stealing.
TE George Kittle, 49ers vs. Rams ($ 6,500). Kittle is undervalued, despite playing in a first offense with multiple talented WRs. It’s just the focus of all of San Francisco’s operations and should be back on Saturday night.
FLEX Todd Gurley, Rams @ 49ers ($ 6,300). Gurley feels like the best combination of floor and ceiling at this price point, instead of taking a chance on a more risky receiver. The 49ers are dinged up and didn’t make much of a slowdown of Devonta Freeman a week ago.
D / ST San Francisco 49ers vs. Rams ($ 3,400). If you want to free up a little more money and play New England here, you might be justified. I’ll take a shot that San Francisco can handle Gerald Goff (whose name I just put the wrong “goof” before I correct it).
