DFS - NFL - DraftKings - NFL Thursday Night Showdown - WAS @ MIN - 10/24/19
Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at 8:20 PM (U.S. Bank Stadium)
It’s Thursday which means we have some NFL action tonight!!!
Let’s take a look at our lineup for DraftKings “Thursday Night Showdown” that features the Washington Redskins taking on the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium.
I’m going to be doing more of a GPP lineup tonight.
I’m hoping for a game script in which Minnesota takes a big lead early behind Dalvin Cook (MVP) and hopefully some TD’s to a lesser owned Olabisi Johnson who saw 8 targets last week and Irv Smith Jr. who should both see increased opportunities with Adam Thielen not available.
Kirk Cousins & Stefon Diggs are going to be highly owned, however, I can see Cousins having just an average game if the Vikings get up early and Diggs will have a tough match-up with Quinton Dunbar.
In hopes that Washington has to play from behind, I’m going to go with Case Keenum and pair him up with Terry McLaurin & Wendell Smallwood.
Keenum should be comfortable at U.S. Bank Stadium where he had some solid success with the Vikings and I expect a bounce back game from him tonight.
McLaurin should see plenty of targets and has the biggest upside of any Washington receiver and I think Smallwood should see plenty of action in the passing game out of the backfield, I think he has a good chance to pick up a TD tonight.
