DraftKings SNF Showdown 2022 – Green Bay @Philadelphia

Finishing off another Sunday of the 2022 season- Green Bay @Philadelphia and the DraftKings showdown slate. This game feels like the coverage is going to be about Aaron Rodgers. During the week it was reported he is playing with a broken thumb. Either he is going to play well, and the narrative will be about him being a warrior, or he/ offense struggles a little, and he ends up on the bench for Jordan Love. The O/U is set at 46, with the Eagles a TD favorite.

DraftKings SNF Showdown 2022 –Green Bay @Philadelphia Captain Picks

Jalen Hurts ($17,400 Capt/ $11,600 Flex)

It’s hard to not have Hurts as CPT whenever he is available. He is just that good for fantasy. The salary hurts further down the slate, but he is truly gam=proof. When the Eagles are chasing, Hurts is needed on the ground and through the air. When they are ahead it’s normally because of him and he moves the chains on the ground.

I’m actually going to put him in as the only CPT, because truly, that’s what he is for me. Ok you might want to pivot if you are entering a huge number of lineups, but truly I wouldn’t move away from Hurts here.

DraftKings SNF Showdown 2022 – Green Bay @Philadelphia Flex Picks

A.J. Brown ($11,200 Flex)

Brown is really smashing in this offense. He has been struggling with an illness, but he should be fine to go here. Brown has every opportunity to smash on this slate. If he starts strongly, it’s going to be hard to stop him. If you don’t go Hurts as CPT, Brown is a nice pivot.

Aaron Jones ($10,400 Flex)

Jones is worth considering on the slate with how much work he gets in the offense. His involvement in the passing game particularly gives him a solid floor. For Jones to be valuable, likely needs the Eagles to stall on offense- not sure how likely that is. With the pricing here, I’m not sure how many lineups I’ll have with him, but I’ll have a few.

Aaron Rodgers ($10,000 Flex)

Rodgers has a broken thumb, and playing in primetime. So this game is really going to go one of two ways. EIther he smashes and the commentary team make this about Rodgers being a warrior playing through, or he struggles and we potentially see Jordan Love come out. Rodgers seems like he is really starting to find out how to get the best from his receivers, and as a Packers fan, I hope he smashes.

Miles Sanders ($8,800 Flex)

Sanders has a great matchup here against the Packers. All season, this defensive front have struggled to stop players running all over them, and now they are being hit by injury. The real question mark comes with Sanders and the Eagles. Sanders hasn’t had a big week since he faced Houston a few weeks back. Still a nice flex option.

DeVonta Smith ($8,000 Flex)

Smith actually see alot of Jaire Alexander in this one, as the Packers don’t really ask him to move around too much, making him a tough play. Yes, there is upside as part of this offense, and he is likely to still get a decent number of targets, but there isn’t really a safe floor here. With the pricing, there are options I prefer instead.

Allen Lazard ($7,400 Flex)

Lazard feels like he is due a big game. He is getting targets in the offense, but that isn’t converting to production. The lead receiver for Aaron Rodgers looking back always has multi-TD upside and we have seen receivers blow up for the Packers this season. At some point, it has to happen for Lazard, doesn’t it?

Christian Watson ($7,200 Flex)

I don’t know if Watson is this type of low-volume high production player, or if he is just going through a rich vein of form. Either way, it’s hard to ignore. Rodgers has shown that he is more than happy to look his way, and let him make big-plays with his speed. I’ll have a decent chunk of lineups with him.

Randall Cobb ($5,200 Flex)

Cobb feels like a nice floor play on the slate. As the starting slot receiver for the Packers, he has been getting plenty of targets in the offense- perfect for DK’s PPR scoring. After missing some time with injury, he looked liek he rolled back the years with his six catches for 73 yards. At the price, I’m going to have a lot of Cobb on the slate.

Robert Tonyan ($5,000 Flex)

Tonyan is second in targets for the team, but I think that says far more about the Packers receivers than anything else. That has definitely been trending down in recent weeks though, with Watson and Cobb getting more looks in the offense. Has redzone upside, so more of a ceiling play- build you lineup accordingly.

AJ Dillon ($4,800 Flex)

Not really going to plan this season for Dillon. Instead of having flex value week to week, it feels like Dillon is really only going to be effective if Jones gets injured. Dillon is actually getting touches in the offense, he just really isn’t managing to do too much with them. It’s worth having some lineups with him in, as injuries happen, but don’t get carried away.

Quez Watkins ($4,600 Flex)

Feels like yesterday that Watkins was sub-$2k on a showdown slate. Now, after a few weeks with some solid contributions, he finds himself in the mid-range. As a result, I’m kinda out on him. Has deep threat ability, so in a long-shot GPP it’s fine but generally I’d look elsewhere.

Kenneth Gainwell/ Boston Scott ($4,400/ $2,600 Flex)

Backup RBs always feel like a risk. Sanders has been on the field for the vast majority of snaps, leaving very little for Gainwell and Scott to share. Really is going to take Sanders to get injured to really give either of these a decent workload. If I’m choosing between them right now, I’ll go Scott. There isn’t really much difference between the two of them and he is $1.8k cheaper.

Sammy Watkins ($3,400 Flex)

I’m reminding you that Watkins plays for the Packers. I don’t know if I’ll have him in any lineups on the slate. At the price, I’d rather take a punt at a cheaper option and spend up elsewhere.

DraftKings SNF Showdown 2022 – Green Bay @Philadelphia Kickers and DSTs

The Eagles DST ($5,600) are a good unit, with speed everywhere on defense. But this price feels high going up against Aaron Rodgers. Yes the Packers offense has struggled this season, but the veteran has the ability to turn it on. If the Packers offense struggles and Jordan Love starts throwing the ball then they could hit value, but I’m not banking on it. Equally, I’m not sure I want to go with the Packers DST ($3,200). Hurts is just too good. He doesn’t give up the ball that often, and because of his legs avoids sacks. Nope.

The kickers in this one could smash, but they need the game to remain close. That has certainly been the issue for Mason Crosby ($3,800). When the Packers have been forced to really chase points, the team have left Crosby on the sidelines. Now, the Eagles have struggled to get going early recently, so Crosby could see more attempts here. Jake Elliott ($4,000) almost has the opposite issue. The Eagles offense has been really efficient which has hurt his fantasy appeal, as he has been brought on the field for PATs rather than FGs. Still, if the Packers defense are able to step up against Hurts, Elliott could be forced to kick the ball more.
