Are You Ready For Thursday Night Football?
The NFL season is entering Week 4 and that means another Showdown Slate Thursday night football on DraftKings. For those newer to DraftKings Showdown contests, as always make sure you check out some general strategy for Showdown contests from my bio page. As a reminder again, Showdown differs from traditional contests in that it features just six players to the roster. The caveat being one is slotted in as your captain. The captain spot is unique; the 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.
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 football.
