We are here to cover the DraftKings Showdown slates for the 2021 season, continuing with Chicago @Green Bay. Chicago head to Lambeau Field to face a highly competitive Green Bay team. Last time these two met Aaron Rodgers let Bears fans know that he still “owns ” them. Vegas seems to think so as well with the O/U set to 43 and the the Packers winning by 12 points. For todays showdown match we will mainly look to fill in our lineup with as many Green Bay players as possible.
DraftKings Showdown- Chicago @Green Bay Captain Picks
Aaron Jones ($15,900 Capt/ $10,600 Flex)
Aaron Jones has been splitting touches with A.J. Dillon but has been super effective with his opportunities.The Bears allow 120.1 rushing yards per game and should leave holes open for Jones to find big gains. Jones leads the team with rushing yards and averages 24.8 receiving yards a game. He makes a great captain play with his versatile scoring and his role in a variety of game scripts.
David Montgomery ($15,000 Capt/ $10,000 Flex)
Montgomery has been a bright spot for a disappointing Chicago offense. In his last game he had 90 rushing yards and a touchdown, with 8 catches and 51 receiving yards. Just like Jones Montgomery can score fantasy points through the ground and through the air. He is the focal point for the Bears offense and I don’t mind him in the captain spot even if I have the Packers winning.
DraftKings Showdown- Chicago @Green Bay Flex
Aaron Rodgers ($12,000 Flex)
Rodgers hates the Bears and can’t wait to destroy them in this matchup. I like pairing him up with Jones or Adams as they have a funnel offense. The Bears earlier in the season showed they are no match for Rodgers and company and I doubt much will change in this one. Just know that rostering Rodgers and one of his pass-catchers is expensive so make sure to have a low-salary player in mind for your lineup.
Davante Adams ($11,600 Flex)
Adams averages over 90 receiving yards a game and is a guaranteed benefactor of Rodgers’ passes. He is also responsible for 21.4% of his teams red zone targets. Adams will be targeted a lot and is game script proof, making him a guaranteed lock.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($7,200 Flex)
MVS has been building chemistry with Aaron Rodgers in key game situations. Although he has a low target share, his touches are efficient, and has the ability to break off big plays. In his last game he was targeted 9 times and brought in four of the catches. I like MVS especially if the Bears defense focuses their attention on Adams.
A.J. Dillon ($4,400 Flex)
Dillon will play a significant role in the game plan and could be featured in a few red zone attempts. Also if this game blows out I suspect Dillon will be asked to carry out the clock for this game. At his price point and the game script looking to be in his favor, I plan to have a lot of lineups with Dillon.
Equanimeous St. Brown ($600 Flex)
St. Brown has been targeted twice in each of his last outings. I see this trend continuing and Brown getting even more targets especially if the game blows out. Rodgers could use the garbage time to develop better chemistry with his receivers. At his price, I like my chances to exceed value.
