DFS Showdown Tips: Tuesday Night Football
This is normally the day we turn the page to the next week, but the NFL and COVID-19 collaborated to give us a pair of Tuesday night games.
As always, I'll be spending the day swamped in getting the IDP rankings set (and all Week 16 rankings will be coming your way at the normal time). But I know some of you out there are excited to play showdown slates for Seahawks-Rams and Eagles- ... Football Team. (That's still weird.) So let's get to some value charts.
Note: As of this writing, we don't have any Washington QB projected, because we don't yet know who'll be starting. Frankly, even if we did know whether Kyle Shurmur or Garrett Gilbert will be under center, the projection for either player would be a near-total guess. They have 44 regular-season NFL pass attempts and 1 start between them, all belonging to Gilbert.
Also, Tyler Lockett and Alex Collins remain on the COVID list at the moment. We'll see whether either can test back in today.
Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams
Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles
One other player to keep in mind for this game is Washington WR Cam Sims. He came off the COVID list at some point Sunday, and thus didn't make it into our Week 16 projections. (No one was saving a starting spot for him in season-long fantasy leagues.) Sims posted a 3-69-1 receiving line on 4 targets last time out and should see at least similar playing time (59%) with Curtis Samuel out.
The key to this slate might just be guessing the Philly RBs right. Jordan Howard and Boston Scott are extreme values, if either happens to find the end zone.
