DFS Showdown Tips: Eagles-Falcons

By Matt Schauf 7:09am EDT 9/15/19


Frustrated that you can’t play Julio Jones, Carson Wentz or anyone else from the Sunday night points fest in your DFS lineup this week? Well, then maybe you should try a Showdown.

In case you haven’t played, a Showdown is a DFS contest centered on a single game. You fill a lineup of 5 players, including at least 1 player from each team. The “captain” in your lineup gets his score multiplied by 1.5.

On DraftKings, that player also has his salary multiplied by 1.5, adding a strategy wrinkle to selecting your captain. On FanDuel, that player’s salary doesn’t change. So you just need to pick the guy you think will score the most points.

The format doesn’t allow you to fit all of the top options from a given game. So the keys are to correctly select a high scorer for your captain slot and to find a low-priced sleeper to help you fit as many points as possible into your lineup.

These contests include kickers on both sites, defenses as well on DraftKings.

The showdowns also come with different salaries than the other contests. Here are our Week 2 PPR projections for Eagles and Falcons, their DK showdown salaries and dollars-per-point rates based on those 2 numbers:
