Hi Everyone,

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.

DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUT OUR GPP LINEUP FOR FANDUEL’S “NFL THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIAL” LINEUP!!!

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.

Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (@BrettCU05) as this is the best place for me to make any last minute adjustments to my lineups.

Good Luck!
