    Well I do like TEN but not sure this is how it gets done… I know I’ll have a TEN D this evening. Otherwise idk what other offensive “weapons” to use. I like Mariota better than Dak but is that saying much? Zeke is the obvious answer but I’m not sure he goes off tonight, although he might not need to.

    Another tough MNF slate…

  • NDNole

    Pretty much no way to fade zeke. I wish that weren’t the case. Gonna do one without him though just in case. he will probably be 80% if not 90% owned.

    EDIT: Nevermind, im not THAT dumb. Gotta have zeke if im doing just one showdown. But im not gonna like it.

  • bigperm0107

    I looked at this slate and spent 10 minutes trying to piece something together then realized I just felt dirty about it and I’m going to skip it and just play NBA.

    I think I’m rolling out 3 and he might have to be in all 3. In the same boat but I just have to look at this game from raw points perspective. He might not make it to the captain slot though but what do I even need the salary for here? Not a fan of this slate but not sure anybody is besides Boys fans really.

    It’s a terrible game. Kickers and defense could play heavily. Dion Lewis shouldn’t be overlooked.

    I never usually ask this, but in the DK $4 Primetime I’m sitting at 133 with my Flex and D to go (leader at 145 with their D to go). I’m leaning Dion because of his volume, but is Davis or Sharpe the sharper play? Assuming he has Dallas D, puts me 12 points behind. Gotta hope Zeke doesn’t eat because that will eliminate Jones and I’m sure someone has Patterson at WR for cheap.

  • ASitar

    Also, my punt of the night for $200.

    Dalton Schultz

    Schultz played 19 snaps in Week 7, behind Swaim’s 47 but more than Jarwin (nine) and Gathers (seven), per Football Outsiders. Swaim’s snaps are going somewhere and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Schultz receive 50-60 percent of the playing time.

    Good Luck! That is a tough spot but a good one. Choosing between Davis or Sharpe just feels…..

    Prob gonna go Dion. Not as contrarian, but he will have more catches than Coop and maybe a TD.

    I will certainly have my shares there. He’s one of my RBs for the primetime slate. I do not see this game going well for either team.

    We need to stop making MNF matchups before the season! Ok that’s impossible but how many “good” MNF have we had this year? I’m really struggling to come up with one.

    Hard to find good ones when SNF is the new MNF marquee game, they are trying to improve the Thursday Night matchups, and you still gotta leave a couple solid Sunday Afternoon games for the networks.

    GB San Fran was probably most entertaining and on paper before the year looked like a decent matchup before Jimmy Gs injury.

    I mean I get but sometimes I just think they are laughing to themselves with the teams they put out there…

    On paper we have a great Thursday matchup this week but I’m sure it’ll turn into a shitshow. I can’t really complain about the matchup there though.

  • fildo22

    For what it’s worth, the Titans signed Jalston Fowler again after cutting him. A fair portion of Derrick Henry success last year was running behind Fowler and his blocking.

  • ASitar

    Gotta be that guy…..

    Captain
    Flex
    DST Cowboys
    DST Titans
    Maher
    Succop

  • Messiah717

    Tenn is 1-3 on the road while Dallas is 3-0 at home.

    Tenn 106 points scored or just over 15/gm.

    Dallas 140 points scored or 20/gm.

    Probably no need to overthink this one.

    Two kickers has worked but it’s usually one defense or the other. I’d go with Dallas.

    The corpse of Eli Manning is going to throw for 500 yards and 6 TDs!!! Even then I’m not sure I’d watch that lol

    Maybe the KC/LAR game will be as good as the NO/LAR game… I guess I can wait 2 weeks and MME the showdown with all the options we will have!

    Anyone fading zeke? Seems like he will be 100% owned.

    1st thing I’d do is look at his roster lineup and guesstimate which D he could afford. if they were in the same range I guess that would be of no help. 2nd If possible I would look at the rosters around me in score and guesstimate what who they may have left based on who they already played. If you are 12 points from winning its worth the time to at least do a precursory look at those around you. THEN, that’s when I would make a choice to differentiate.

    If fading him you’d hope he gets less than 15 points since he has the highest floor and you can have him and still virtually anyone you want. I’d fade him if it was a game vs Gmen with OBJ and Barkley for example. If he gets 15+ DK points he WILL be in the winning LU. Since you don’t need either QB I’d guess Zeke will also be the highest owned Captain.

    Yes and when you add the showdown jinx to those numbers it means this game is going to be 56-49 Titans for the win. With both punters rushing for Td’s, Both kickers throwing Td passes to the 4th TE, and both backup qb’s getting 1 yard goal line td’s on sneaks. And some schmo is gonna have all of them in his lineup cause that’s how showdowns roll.
