Get Ready To Win Thursday Night

The Showdown on DraftKings sets the stage for an epic Thursday night. How it differs from traditional contests is that it features just six players to the roster. The caveat being one is slotted in as your captain. The captain spot is unique; that players slotted there earns 1.5x fantasy points. They also cost 1.5x their normal price. Finding the right player for your captain spot will be especially important to win because if they have a big game and are not owned highly they are the difference-maker in the contest.

In GPPs, you want to have someone with a high ceiling in your captain spot. Because in one game outcomes can be quite volatile, focusing your efforts on GPPs is the better approach, because there’s a chance that no player is truly safe. Two “players” to not overlook are both defenses. They have massive upside because they can score touchdowns and if the game does not feature high offensive scoring the defenses will be at the top of the scoring. Green Bay and Chicago are on FanDuel Sportsbook at a 46.5 with the Bears (-3).

For the captain spot, I would recommend going with a wide receiver. You can then stack players together in your lineup to further maximize your upside. Lastly, do not be afraid to leave the remaining salary on the table! The more you leave the less likely someone will have the same lineup as you in these massive GPPs on Thursday night!

Final Takeaways

Buy into a narrative. Remember storytime as a kid? Same concept here. How will the game go in your eyes? Give yourself an idea of how you think the game will go and build your roster in correspondence to the game flow. Check out the full video to get the players I recommend targeting for Thursday night.

Andrew has come a long way as a fantasy football writer. After graduating from Roger Williams University where he received a degree in marketing he began to write his own fantasy blogs via WordPress.com. He used to call himself the Fantasy Football Master. Nowadays, he is slightly more humble. He has worked with Pro Football Focus as a base data analyst along with bringing head writing experience from Gridiron Experts and FantasyData. He is an absolute die-hard Patriots fan and will never forget his first fantasy football team. In his first-ever fantasy football league he drafted the Bears defense in the 1st round. He then proceeded to win the entire league. #DefenseWinsChampionships
