Thursday Night Football DFS: Week 16

Thursday Night Football DFS: Week 16

by December 23, 2021 0 comments

It is hard to believe but the final Thursday Night Game of the season is officially here. To finish off the Thursday Night Football schedule, the San Francisco 49ers will head into Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans. Both teams are currently in the playoffs but need a win to feel comfortable going into the final two weeks. Let’s take a look at the top DFS players in this matchup.

DraftKings Captain

Dontrell Hilliard (DK 4,200 | FD 9,500)

The Titans’ backfield was almost an even three-way split last week in Pittsburgh. However, Hilliard is the most explosive of the three. Furthermore, in his 29 snaps last week, he saw nine carries and six targets. When he is in the game they are trying to get him the ball. He has the speed to take one to the end zone and break this slate. Playing him at Captain is risky but the salary he saves and his value at this spot could help takedown tournaments.

FanDuel MVP

Ryan Tannehill (DK 10,000 | FD 15,000)

Tannehill is obviously not the same quarterback without Derrick Henry. However, what has hurt him the most the last few games is A.J. Brown being out. He has failed to throw for over 200 yards and only has one passing touchdown in the last three games without Brown. However, Brown is expected to be back, as well as a healthy Julio Jones, who logged a full practice Wednesday. Furthermore, the 49ers’ defense has allowed fantasy points to quarterbacks all season. Look for Tannehill with some of his weapons back to be one of the highest scorers on the slate.

Flex Plays

Jimmy Garoppolo (DK 10,400 | FD 14,000)

Garoppolo has had a very solid season and has played well enough to hold off rookie Trey Lance for the starting position. He makes enough plays to put up fantasy points and should continue to do so against the Titans. The Titans’ defense has been playing well lately but has not faced the best competition. Garoppolo is the toughest quarterback they have faced since Week 9. He’s doesn’t have that big of a ceiling because of the style the 49ers play. However, he has a very solid floor making him a great flex play.

George Kittle (DK 11,200 | FD 13,000)

Kittle has been dominating opponents since his return from injury in Week 9. He has six touchdowns in a seven-game stretch and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Kittle is a physical mismatch and will be very tough for the Titans to slow down. The Titans have been good defending tight ends this season, but Kittle should still get his points in this game.
