DFS Showdown Tips: Bears-Rams

By Matt Schauf and Jared Smola 4:11pm EST 11/17/19


Will we get points from the Sunday night game?

When the Rams visited the Bears last December, we only got 21 total in a 15-6 Chicago victory. The 2 sides combined for just 508 total yards, including only 214 from a Rams offense that finished the season 2nd in scoring and 2nd in yards.

This year’s version sits just 10th in scoring and 12th in yards -- and a lowly 21st in Football Outsiders’ overall offensive efficiency.

The Bears, of course, check in even lower at 26th. Both defenses, meanwhile, rank top 5 in overall efficiency.

So, should we just play both defenses here? Should we avoid both QBs -- each of whom sits outside the top 17 in our Week 11 rankings?

Let’s check the value charts …


DraftKings


Injuries to Trey Burton (IR) and Adam Shaheen thrust Ben Braunecker into Chicago’s top TE role. He doesn’t need to do a whole lot to pay off at $800. Bears RB Tarik Cohen also stands a chance to gain relevance if David Montgomery (questionable, ankle) misses the game. He’d be a high-upside option at his salary.


FanDuel


Jared Goff somewhat surprisingly leads the value chart on FanDuel, despite the highest salary. Cohen also stands out here as a value, while Braunecker doesn’t enjoy nearly as much salary margin. Allen Robinson could be a big factor in this game. He figures to draw a shadow from Rams CB Jalen Ramsey, who has allowed 14 catches for 202 among 17 targets in 3 games since the trade.
