We are here to cover the 2022 DraftKings showdown slate for Monday Night Football Week 10, Washington @Philadelphia. This division matchup will be a repeat of week 3 where the Eagles won in a convincing fashion. Vegas projects the game to have an O/U of 44 points with the eagles winning by 11. This is not a showdown slate to get cute, and it’s a strong possibility the chalk will hit. Play as many Eagles players as you can- Philly should dominate Washington as they are still suffering from poor offensive line play and have careless Heinicke slinging it into double coverage.
DraftKings MNF Showdown 2022 – Washington @Philadelphia Captain Picks
Jalen Hurts ($18,300 Capt/ $12,200 Flex)
He has been magnificent this season. This is my second time writing about him this year and I could literally copy-paste what I wrote last time. He has been the best at what he does and has been consistent. The only person close to his QBR is Tua, who probably has two of the league’s best WRs. He is super efficient and has the tools to attack all levels of the field. The Washington defense had ample time to prepare but it won’t stop Hurts from dominating. He is my captain in most of my lineups.
Miles Sanders ($14,700 Capt/ $9,800 Flex)
The Eagles are very likely to build up a 2 or 3 point lead in the 1st quarter. If that is the case and things go smoothly I could see them just running the ball through the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Sanders is their main guy and I could see him getting the bulk of the carries before Gainwell or Scott comes in to relieve him in the 4th. Sanders hasn’t shown us much this season which could mean we can roster him at low ownership. This game seems to be set up for Sanders to have a big game and at his price/ownership he makes a great contrarian captain pick
Dallas Goedert ($11,700 Capt/ $7,800 Flex)
Goedert is one of the biggest offensive pieces for the Eagles this season, and even had more looks than A.J. Brown last time out. Finally managed to get into the endzone last week. Goedert is a sneaky play at CPT and playing him allows you to spend up big elsewhere. YOu could even get in Hurts along with Brown and not have to make huge concessions elsewhere.
DraftKings MNF Showdown 2022 – Washington @Philadelphia Flex Picks
A.J. Brown ($10,600 Flex)
A.J. Brown should dominate in this outing. He will have mediocre coverage from this budding Washington secondary. Last time Smith dominated in the Week 3 matchup, but I have a feeling they are going to want to try a few plays to prepare for later matchups and playoffs. Look for Hurts to hit Brown at all levels of the fields.
Taylor Heinicke ($9,000 Flex)
He doesn’t pass the eye test- he throws ball into double coverage begging teams to pick him off. His one upside is his ability to keep the play alive by scrambling out of the pocket. This could be beneficial as the Eagles’ linemen come swarming in due to the lack of protection. The range of outcomes for Heinicke is just wild. I could see him being the highest-scoring Washington player on the slate, I could also see him ending with negative points and being benched…….
Related Super Sneaky Bonus Play- Sam Howell ($6,000 Flex)
I think this is the week Heinicke could get bench. That man loves testing his luck by throwing into double/triple coverage. Rivera grilled him after the Minnesota game for the unnecessary turnovers. The Eagles have one of the best defenses in the league and are excellent at making plays. This is a bad mix for Heinicke and I see a world where he is benched in the second half. If Howell does get the time he could rely on his legs to move the chains- something the Eagles’ defense might not expect. Howell has a strong arm and makes smart reads, I’m sure the offense will run smoother with Heinicke on the bench. The best thing about this play is no one will own him. I plan to build 1 lineup with Howell and throw it in the NFL $1.5M MNF Showdown.
Terry McLaurin ($8,200 Flex)
Heinicke likes to target Terry consistently so he will have plenty of opportunities to make plays. He has been targeted 8 times with Heinicke under center. The last time they played the Eagles, he racked up 100 yards. He has found success against Darius Slay and James Bradberry, so hopefully, at his price, he makes the most of his targets.
Devonta Smith ($8,000 Flex)
Smith had his best game against Washington in Week 3. Although Smith has been spotty as of late this could be the week he bounces back. The Washington secondary isn’t the best and he can find his groove with Hurts attacking upper levels of the field, outside of the numbers.
Antonio Gibson ($6,800 Flex)
If you had to pinpoint a soft spot for the Eagles’ D it would be their run defense. They have gladly played most games with a lead and can sag off their assignments to prevent big plays. Gibson has been giving opportunities in the passing games as well relief to J.D. and Brian Robinson. He could find his way in the end zone and be one of the few Washington players you want to roster.
Curtis Samuel ($6,600 Flex)
In their last game against Minnesota, Curtis Samuel balled out. He made 3 catches for 65 yards and a touchdown. I expect him and Heinicke to look for ways to score against this stout Eagles defense. He has been reliant on big plays and the return of Dotson should cut into his production.
Brian Robinson ($5,400 Flex)
Brian Robinson has been getting most of the first-down work. He is getting more touches than anyone else out of the backfield, he just hasn’t been efficient with them. The rookie has been a great source of energy for this team. It’s a tough ask against this Eagles front, but Robinson should find himself on the field more often in passing downs with J.D. McKissic out.
Jahan Dotson ($5,000 Flex)
The rookie is no longer on the injury report and has been cleared to play. Dotson says he is ready to go and should provide a boost to the Washington receiving core. The Eagles’ defense will most likely focus their attention on McLaurin opening up the potential for Dotson to break free for a big one.
Kenneth Gainwell/Boston Scott ($4,600/ $1,600 Flex)
If the Eagles get out to an early lead, they will be able to run the ball and just try to milk the clock out. Either Kenneth or Boston will relieve Miles Sanders which both can make the most of the opportunity. Both are pretty physical and may be relied on pass protection- giving way to being on the field for broken plays.
Logan Thomas ($2,600 Flex)
He had a huge snap count last game against the Vikings but had zero catches. He seems to be healthy now and a part of their offensive game plan. I bet the Eagles have not game-planed for him making him a sneaky low-cost play.
DraftKings MNF Showdown 2022 – Washington @Philadelphia Kickers and DSTs
I like pairing up the kickers with the team I’m stacking. I’m not that interested in Joey Slye ($3,800) because one, Washington will lose and two, he has only kicked a single field goal in his last two games. I’m more inclined to play Jake Elliot ($4,400), and jam him into a 4-2, 5-1 heavy Eagles build.
The same is true for the defenses- Commanders DST ($3,200) and Eagles DST ($6,400). Chase Young, one of the league’s best linemen, might make his return. If the Eagles aren’t prepared they could be slowed by Washington’s defensive line. On the other hand, the Philly defense has played phenomenally- the last time they played Washington they tore through their offensive line preventing Washington from moving the ball. The only change for the Commanders since then is a new QB and the worsening offensive line. I’m loading up on Eagles defense.
