DFS Showdown Tips: Cowboys-Giants
Last time Dak Prescott played the Giants on the road, he threw for 387 yards and 4 TDs. The last time before that: 332 yards and 3 TDs.
Prescott hasn’t fared particularly well on the road lately, but he has fared extremely well against the Giants wherever he has faced them. This season’s meeting at his place found the Cowboys QB racking up 405 yards, 4 TDs and a perfect passer rating.
Prescott has since delivered another 400-yard game and the position’s 4th most fantasy points per game. The Giants have yielded the 9th most QB points per game on the season.
Are we headed for another Cowboys passing explosion? Or is it the Giants’ turn after a 4-TD game from QB Daniel Jones at Detroit?
Let’s check the value chart to help build our showdown lineups ...
Dak Prescott sits 4th in DK dollars per point among players we have projected for this game. The next guy with a 5-digit salary ranks 11th. And that guy is Prescott’s top wideout. It’ll have to be a contrarian lineup if you’re not including the Dallas QB and at least 1 of his pass-catchers.
Despite Prescott’s success in this matchup, though, Daniel Jones sits even higher on the value chart thanks to a smaller salary than usual for a starting QB in a showdown.
You’ll see the QBs and their RBs leading the value chart here, but you can’t fit all 4 of them into a FD showdown lineup. So you’ll need to either pick your favorites or enter multiple lineups to cover your bases. The kickers sit a little lower here than they do on the DK chart.
