SNF DraftKings Showdown Picks

*Disclaimer: These picks have been constructed with the mindset of building a single lineup. When building large field/multi-entry tournaments, if the player sees the field you’ll want to have a piece of him somewhere, my “busts” included.


Lamar Jackson

DraftKings Captain Salary- $18,600

Surprise, surprise. The most dynamic playmaker on the field tonight, Lamar Jackson should propel your Sunday Night Football lineups to the top of the leaderboards. Fresh off of his second game of 300+ passing yards, Jackson is in line for another wonderful matchup. The Jaguars DST has been the third friendliest team to the quarterback position this season. Although Jackson is still without his favorite pass catcher Mark Andrews (IR), his other weapons have really come alive in his stead, most notably Odell Beckham Jr, who has two games over 90 yards in his last three contests.

Lamar Jackson himself is just breaking the slump he was in before the bye week. Jackson had scored more than 15 DK points just once in the 5 games before the break. However, the 3 TDs he tossed against the Rams last week were more than enough to make you feel like he’s back on the right track. The most positive sign of Jackson’s return to form is the 70 rushing yards he racked up last week. Those 70 rushing yards were his second-highest total of the year. If Jackson is able to marry the passing and ground attack once again, he’ll easily pay of his $18,600 DraftKings captain salary.

Core Play

Evan Engram

DraftKings Salary- $7,600

With Christian Kirk (groin) placed on IR last Friday, Evan Engram operated as Trevor Lawrence’s go-to target. Well not exactly. His 12 targets wound up being third in targets behind Zay Jones (14) and Calvin Ridley (13). However, Engram was by far the most efficient with his looks, catching all but one of the passes intended for him. The Baltimore DST has been somewhat susceptible to the tight end position. Three weeks ago, they let Bengals tight end Tanner Hudson lead his team in receiving yards. Two weeks ago Chargers TE Gerald Everett recorded 43 yards and a TD. Just last week, Davis Allen went for 50 yards and a score himself. I might be going out on a limb saying this, but I think Evan Engram is a far more dynamic player than the two mentioned above. His SNF matchup is a lot sweeter than it looks on paper.


Isaiah Likely

DraftKings Salary- $6,800

Isaiah Likely has taken over the TE1 role in Baltimore. After Mark Andrews went down in Week 11, Likely would match his season-high receptions the very next week. Last week against the Rams, Likely topped that number by catching 5 of his 7 targets. Likely was able to take those 5 receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown. Just as the Baltimore DST has been susceptible to the TE position, the Jaguars DST has been equally as bad. This can be evidenced by the Jags’ performance against David Njoku and the Cleveland Browns last week. The big man tight end went nuclear catching six balls for 91 yards and 2 touchdowns. Njoku is a physical tight end while Likely provides a bit more shake and yards after the catch ability. The Jaguars’ secondary will still be licking their wounds when they meet Likely and the Ravens under the SNF primetime lights.


Zay Jones

DraftKings Salary- $5,600

If you’re not awake after 14 targets last week then I don’t know what to tell you. End transmission.

I was tempted to just leave it at that, but I suppose I’ll provide a nugget or two of insight as well. I mentioned it earlier, Christian Kirk is out. That means that once again the focal points on this offense will be Calvin Ridley, Evan Engram, and yes, Zay Jones. Now, if you’re a defensive coordinator, your main focus has got to be limiting Calvin  Ridley. The Browns were able to do it last week (4-53-0 line) and they came away with the victory. After Engram’s 2 TD performance last week, he’s bound to draw some attention as well, leaving Zay Jones to feast on SNF. Trevor Lawrence attempted 50 passes last week. Playing against a Baltimore DST that has been stingy against the run, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Lawrence get close to that number again.

SNF Bust

Gus Edwards

DraftKings Salary- $7,400

Oh Gus Edwards, oh Gus Bus. We had a nice run (literally), but now it seems that the Ravens are making room for the Keaton Mitchell era. In Week 12 before the bye week, Edwards was granted 8 carries (26 yards) against the Chargers. Edwards also got one look in the passing game. That same week Mitchell was given 9 carries (64 yards) and was looked at twice in the passing game. Similar opportunities, but greater production from Mitchell. Last week Gus’ attempt shrunk to just 6. He took those for 15 yards and was not targeted in the passing game. Mitchell took his 9 totes for 54 yards and was targeted twice again. I don’t have an explanation for why Gus Edwards’ SNF  DraftKings salary is $1600 more than Mitchell, but I’ll certainly be taking advantage.
