NFL DraftKings Showdown SlateIQ - Week 3 Monday Night Football - Chiefs @ Ravens

Welcome back to NFL Showdown SlateIQ, the 2020 version. For those not familiar, we offer a SlateIQ product for NFL, NBA and MLB main slates that uses our very own ResultsDB data to match the upcoming main slate to the historical DFS slates on DraftKings that are most similar based on several different characteristics at the slate, game and player level.

As a reminder, or in case you didn’t read these articles last year, we are doing something a little bit different for Showdown SlateIQ since, well, Showdown contests are quite a bit different than main slate contests. Instead of trying to match previous slates, we want to match previously similar games. So, in order to do that, we created Game Archetypes based on the total amount of scoring in a game, final point differential, and some other team characteristics. That way if we think a game is going to be a close, low-scoring slugfest, we can see how we should be building our Showdown lineups based on what has been winning in Showdown lineups in other close, low-scoring slugfests.

Moving forward we’ll have these articles up for every primetime matchup, so we can all take advantage of the massive prize pools in these showdown contests on DraftKings. Currently, we are only able to support this data for DraftKings (sorry FanDuel peeps). We’re also going to be working on adding some additional metrics and insights into this as the season goes along, so if you have any feedback please feel free to drop it in the comments, DM me here on RG, or contact me on Twitter.

    It’d be nice to know which side the CPT fell on under “Roster Construction” i.e. What’s the split on winner/loser Captain’s on that 2-4 build.

    I bet the whales know that data….
