NFL DFS Showdown Lineup Picks: Cowboys-Titans

If you think you're angry about how this Thursday night game has turned out, just imagine how the NFL feels ...

Imagine you invited everyone you know over for a dinner party. But then the night arrives, and you realize you only have frozen fish sticks. And your oven's broken. Oh, and the only person you can call to fix it is Joshua Dobbs.

The Tennessee Titans have clearly conceded this contest. They won't play Derrick Henry on offense. They placed Ryan Tannehill on IR today. And they also finally realized that Malik Willis shouldn't bet on an NFL field right now.

So we'll get Dobbs and his 17 career attempts in nearly 6 NFL seasons at the helm, throwing passes to a receiving corps that will probably be wondering why it can't get the night off, too. Hassan Haskins is expected to lead the backfield.

They'll face a Cowboys squad that can still win the NFC East and the conference's top playoff seed. Dallas will go without RB Tony Pollard (thigh) and arrives as a 14-point favorite. The setup begs the question of whether we should expect their starters to go the whole way.

Well, the DFS Showdown format allows us to play a little more "what if" than we can comfortably do in season-long fantasy football playoffs lineups. And we'll get into some of that as we peruse the value charts for DraftKings and FanDuel.
