Tuesday Night Football DFS: Week 15by Brandon Braasch December 21, 2021 0 comments
Unfortunately, Covid-19 hit the NFL very hard this past week. Therefore, for the first time this season, we will have Tuesday Night Football games. Both games will be at 7:00 PM EST time. The Philadelphia Eagles will be hosting the Washington Football while the Los Angeles Rams host the Seattle Seahawks. Let’s take a look at the top DFS players in these two games.
Matthew Stafford (DK 6,700 | FD 8,500)
Stafford has dialed it in the last few games. He has thrown for three touchdowns and over 287 passing yards in each of his last three contests. The Seahawks defense has allowed 290 passing yards and 1.4 passing touchdowns per game this season. Stafford seems to be hitting his stride on this Rams offense and that will continue again tonight.
Antonio Gibson (DK 6,800 | FD 7,400)
Gibson was chalk last week and he flopped. If you played him last week and he killed your lineup, don’t hold a grudge and fade him this week. Yes, the Eagles have been good against the run of late. However, with the quarterback situation, they will have to rely heavily on Gibson in this game. He could even see more work in the passing attack with J.D. McKissic unable to play.
Miles Sanders (DK 5,700 | FD 6,700)
When Sanders gets carries, he usually produces. Last week, when he saw a season-high in carries, he went for 120 rushing yards. However, that was with Gardner Minshew at quarterback, and Jalen Hurts will be starting this game. Although, with his ankle injury they should rely more on Sanders and try and keep Hurts in the pocket as much as possible.
Cooper Kupp (DK 8,800 | FD 9,500)
Kupp has been by far the best fantasy wide receiver this year. He has seen double-digit targets in every game but one this season. Since Robert Woods suffered a season-ending ACL tear, the lowest points Kupp has scored in PPR formats is 18.6. He’s a lock-in every lineup no matter what contest you are playing tonight.
Quez Watkins (DK 3,700 | FD 5,500)
Watkins is one of the cheaper options at wide receiver but he also has the ability to break the slate. He is very boom or bust but he sees the field a lot having played at least 72 percent of snaps since Week 5. Watkins is exactly the type of guy you want in at least a couple of lineups. If you only play one lineup, take the risk.
John Bates (DK 2,800 | FD 4,500)
If by some chance Minshew ends up starting, go with Dallas Goedert at tight end. However, if Hurts starts then pay down at tight end for Bates. He is in line to start because Ricky Seals-Jones missed practice time due to an illness. The tight end position is very slim on this slate and all Bates needs is a couple of receptions to return some value.
