Playoff DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for 49ers-Packers Divisional Round Showdown tournaments

We’re taking big risks on our 49ers-Packers DraftKings Showdown lineup, but in a game full of stars, you’re going to have to fade someone you like. To fit into an Aaron Rodgers-Davante Adams stack, we had to pay for our “Captain” and include a TD or bust pick which should provide a lot of differentiation in the lineup. In other words, we have the kind of single-game lineup that could really have a big hit in a DFS tournament if things go well, but it’s by no means a guaranteed money winner.

These are the important settings for DraftKings single-game contests: Is , and there are , and . The Captain pick costs 1.5 times the player’s original price, but also gets his point total multiplied by 1.5.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: 49ers vs. packers

Budget of $50,000, at least one player from each team is needed.

Dillon has a lot going for him, including price and TD potential. However, he loses some shine in DraftKings compared to FanDuel because he doesn’t catch a lot of passes and is unlikely to break the 100 yard barrier, but it’s hard to put together a worthwhile lineup with Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones or Deebo Samuel as their “Captain”. Apparently, Dillon has become Green Bay’s primary ball carrier, and his physical style should work better against San Francisco’s tough frontcourt. Dillon can pay this price as long as he scores, and if he’s a little more active in the passing game, he could provide great value as an underowned “Captain.”

The favorite for MVP can put up big numbers against anyone, and with an average of 298.5 passing yards and more than three total TDs per game in his last six complete contests, we expect the good times to continue against a banged-up 49ers. defending. Fading Rodgers is a risky but potentially viable move, but we don’t have the guts to do it.

If Rodgers leaves, Adams will too. Green Bay’s star pass receiver has averaged 8.7 receptions, 105.7 yards and 1.3 TDs in his last six complete games, so it wouldn’t be wise to fade him. The only real question is if he should be your “Captain”. It is difficult to pay for him in that place, but we will gladly accept him as a flex.

Samuel is a threat as a pass receiver and running back, so he has value regardless of whether San Francisco gets up or down early. The Packers are better against the run than they are against the pass, but Samuel is the type of versatile, physical running back who can succeed against anyone.

Lazard will have to deal with Randall Cobb (core) for objectives, but with Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) expected to be out, Lazard still has a lot of potential. He has been on fire down the stretch, averaging 4.2 receptions, 58 yards and one TD per game in the last five. He can easily pay off along with Rodgers and Adams, though there’s an argument that two WRs and a Green Bay RB are too many. We are taking the risk given our desire to have Samuel in our lineup.

Juszczyk’s touches are nothing to write home about, but he’s the kind of versatile player who can catch passes anywhere down the field or run on the goal line. We need an ultra-cheap player, and Juszczyk is as cheap as we can get and we still have a real chance to score points. We could just as easily get a zero, but we’ll take our chances.
