Monday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Lineup Tips for Week 12 Seahawks-Washington Showdown Tournaments

Monday night’s week 12 football game features the Seahawks against the Washington football team. Las Vegas sportsbooks opened the Seahawks as 1.5-point road favorites, but the line has since moved in favor of the soccer team with some bookmakers treating the game as a pick and others including to Washington as a one-point favorite. With totals around 46.0-46.5, we may not be dealt with a shootout. However, we still like the sneaky value that lies within this single-game DFS tournament, and our DraftKings Showdown lineup is spearheaded by a bold pick in our captain space.

Here are the key scoring settings for DraftKings Showdown contests: Full point PPR and here they are three-point bonuses for 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards, and 100 receiving yards. The Captain’s pick costs 1.5 times the player’s original price, but also gets his total points multiplied by 1.5.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Seahawks vs. Washington

$ 50,000 budget, at least one player from each team is needed.

Captain (1.5x points, 1.5x salary) RB Alex Collins, Seahawks ($ 9,900)

The Seahawks are rapidly dropping bodies at running back. With Chris Carson (neck) out for the year and both Rashad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) ruled out, it’s reasonable to expect Collins to feature prominently in the Seahawks’ running game. Collins is off the injury report, so he’s likely to see more than the 10 carries he’s had in the previous three games.

FLEX QB Taylor Heinicke, Washington ($ 9,800)

We can’t include Terry McLaurin in the mix this week, but we do get some indirect exposure by including Heinicke, who has eclipsed 20.0 points in DraftKings in two of his last four games. While he only has one rushing touchdown on the season, he adds a little extra potential with his feet. The Seahawks have been friendly with quarterbacks, ranking 25th in touchdowns allowed at the position.

FLEX WR DK Metcalf, Seahawks ($ 8,800)

The Seahawks’ top two wide receivers have traded stints of good form with bouts of poor production. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett have goals and catches split almost in half, 72-71 and 46-47, respectively, so looking at any particular game, there’s nothing wrong with considering them both as a draw. Anyone is capable of 100 yards and / or multiple touchdowns, and Metcalf is significantly cheaper.

FLEX RB Antonio Gibson, Washington ($ 8,600)

Gibson has delivered two solid performances after its goodbye to Week 9, although last week’s production didn’t translate into a big fantasy production. He’s also absent from the injury report, suggesting that his shin isn’t hampering him as much as it was earlier in the season. The Seahawks have been generous to running backs, so Gibson could continue to be successful on the field.

FLEX RB JD McKissic, Washington ($ 7,200)

McKissic is second on the soccer team with 79 touches at 7.0 yards per pop. That volume includes 38 receptions, also second on the team, which plays well under DraftKings’ full PPR format. We don’t mind including both members of Washington’s backfield against a defense that offers as much backfield production as the Seahawks do.

FLEX RB DeeJay Dallas, Seahawks ($ 5,200)

While Collins will likely get the bulk of the carries Monday night, Seattle will lean on Dallas as the top receiving option outside of the backfield. Dallas scored its first touchdown of the season in a loss to the Cardinals in Week 11 and drew five goals in a Sunday night game against the Steelers. A bigger role and more than 10 touches could be on the menu for Dallas with so many injuries to the Seahawks running back.
