Monday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS Lineup Tips for Week 16 Dolphins-Saints Showdown Tournaments

This season’s penultimate edition of Monday Night Football pits a pair of postseason hopefuls against each other. The Saints will host the Dolphins as both bubble teams leave it all on the field to end Week 16. DraftKings Sportsbook paints the picture of a low-scoring affair, but we can still put together a viable DraftKings Showdown lineup. Miami is a favorite on the three-point road, which is why we lean towards the Dolphins players, including the D / ST. Rolling with a defensive unit is never a flashy DFS move, but it can be worth it. All in all, we have a unique lineup that should have no trouble scoring points.

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, Y 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: Dolphins vs. Saints

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

Captain (1.5x points, 1.5x salary): Alvin Kamara, Saints ($ 18,300)

It’s easy to name Kamara the “Captain” based not only on his usage (33.6 percent of the Saints’ touches) but also on his production (five DraftKings performances over 20 points). Until Ian Book at quarterback, the Saints won’t need an additional excuse to lean on their versatile running back.

FLEX WR Jaylen Waddle, Dolphins ($ 11,600)

Waddle has continued to develop into a very solid rookie season and emerged as the Dolphins’ WR1. He’s hit double-digit goals in five of his last eight, and his 114 goals represent 22.2 percent of the team’s total. Neither his target percentage nor his catch average (9.9 yards) are striking numbers, but he is catching 75.4 percent of his passes and has scored both on the ground and in the air.

FLEX RB Duke Johnson, Dolphins ($ 7,200)

The Dolphins’ Myles Gaskin ($ 7,400) is a viable pivot for those who want to make a counter play. Johnson’s Week 15 workload (23 touches) was among the most voluminous the Dolphins’ back has received this season. We know Johnson poses a threat as a running back and catcher and has the ability to make big plays if he gets another strong complement of hits.

FLEX TE Mike Gesicki, Dolphins ($ 6,400)

Gesicki’s 19.1 percent target share is quite high when it comes to small group workloads, and is the second largest on the team. He has had 19 goals in his last two games and six double-digit DK performances overall. The Saints have been tight-fisted against tight ends, but Gesicki is such an important piece of Miami’s offense. We are going to put our faith in him on Monday night.

Dolphins FLEX DEF ($ 4,400)

We are betting on the Dolphins as much as we bet on the Saints. Miami has scored more than 17 DK points in three of six. Meanwhile, the Saints will start rookie Ian Book. Even with the advantage of playing at home, Book will have a particularly tough challenge ahead of him.

FLEX TE Nick Vannett, Santos ($ 1,000)

Vannett is emerging from a chicken egg in last week’s 9-0 win against the Buccaneers, but caught six of 10 goals in the previous two games. Vannett isn’t a target pig by any means, but he might be one of the only tight ends available to the Saints. We’re going to risk him serving as one of Book’s top readers during Monday’s contest.
