Saturday Soccer DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Lineup Suggestions for Week 16 49ers-Cardinals Showdown Tournaments


49ers vs. Cardinals won't be on traditional TV in week 16 as it can only be seen on Amazon Prime Video. However, with many explosive players on both teams, it's a game that's still worth playing in NFL DFS single-match competitions. It could also be pretty one-sided, which shows in our heavy investment in the Cardinals on our DraftKings Showdown roster.

The captain's choice for us fell on Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, and we went with Murray thanks to his urgency. We also played Kenyan Drake, so we have the three most expensive options in Arizona. There's enough value on a shabby roster in San Francisco for this to work.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: 49ers vs. Cardinals

Captain (1.5x Price, 1.5x Points): QB Kyler Murray, Cardinals ($ 19,200)

While the 49ers will likely showcase some stats in this game due to injuries, none of them will likely get enough raw points to make them worth playing as captain. That gives Murray or DeAndre Hopkins the choice for us, and because Murray can practically only win a week on his legs, we went with him. He scored 27.3 DK points in week 1 against a much healthier 49ers defense.

FLEX: WR DeAndre Hopkins, Cardinals ($ 11,600)

Hopkins made another ridiculous touchdown catch in week 15 and remains the best stacking option with Murray. He will be highly owned in this game, including possibly 20 percent captain ownership, and he should even play against Richard Sherman. It's too risky to fade Hopkins.

FLEX: RB Kenyan Drake, Cardinals ($ 9,200)

Drake treated us with the three most expensive cardinals for various game scenarios. A slow week 15 ago, Drake had scored double-digit DK points in five straight games and he should return to that level in that game as his touches have been constant in the second half of the season.


FLEX: RB Jeff Wilson Jr., 49er ($ 3,600)

Wilson (ankle) has to make it on the field for this choice to work, but if he's out there you should play him. In this scenario too, he would be the best captain option. That's because Raheem Mostert is out with an ankle injury. Wilson is a strong runner who has shown in the past that he can make money around the goal line. This year, JWJ has also proven to be an explosive runner between the 20s, and he should lead the 49ers in double digits as long as he plays.

FLEX: WR Richie James Jr., 49er ($ 2,600)

James has the little & # 39; Q & # 39; next to him in DK, but Kyle Shanahan told reporters Tuesday that James had just dealt with a sprained thumb in week 15 and would be fine. He was the second most snapped receiver in San Francisco versus Dallas, seeing seven targets. This workload should continue when Deebo Samuel is not there. James is a bargain for an explosive gamer under $ 3,000.


FLEX: RB Jerick McKinnon, 49er ($ 2,400)

Shanahan cannot play a single main run game. Someone is going to fill Mostert's place in the rotation, and that should be McKinnon. Since DK benefits from pass-catching backs, McKinnon has value at its price. It won't be difficult for him to beat his price with solid production.
