The Cardinals and Rams meet for the third time this season, however this time, it will likely be a win-or-go-home playoff scenario on Monday evening. The Rams’ facet of issues has loads of DFS choices with excessive upside, and we’re going with a Rams’ onslaught in our DraftKings match lineup. Cooper Kupp would be the hottest captain decide, and for good purpose, however we’re going elsewhere to distinguish our picks in GPP tournaments.

Listed here are the essential settings for DraftKings single-game contests: It is full-point PPR, and there are three-point bonuses for 300 passing yards, 100 speeding yards, and 100 receiving yards. The Captain decide prices 1.5 instances a participant’s authentic value, however he additionally will get his level complete multiplied by 1.5.

MORE DK SHOWDOWN: win a Showdown contest

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Cardinals vs. Rams

$50,000 price range, want at the least one participant from every workforce.

Captain: (1.5x wage, 1.5x factors): WR Van Jefferson, Rams ($7,800)

There seemingly will not be a ton of groups with Jefferson as captain, however he might realistically be the very best scorer. He is nonetheless flying underneath the radar in DFS and in actual life, so with all the eye on Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr., the hope right here is Jefferson will get free on just a few deep pictures towards the Arizona secondary that enables the fourth-most DK factors to WRs. He has the identical upside as OBJ and is about $2,500 cheaper.


FLEX: QB Matthew Stafford, Rams ($10,800)

Stafford could also be operating out of probabilities to show he can get issues completed in huge video games, so we’ll financial institution on him lastly breaking by with an explosive passing day, incomes his first profession playoff “W.” He reached at the least 20.3 DK factors in each matchups with Arizona and threw 5 touchdowns to only one interception in these video games.


FLEX: WR Cooper Kupp, Rams ($13,000)

We’re not fading Kupp altogether as a result of it is robust to suppose the successful lineup will not have him in it. The Jefferson at captain choice as a part of the Stafford-Kupp-Jefferson stack provides us viability with a bit little bit of creativity. Kupp’s 2021 resume speaks for itself.


FLEX: TE Zach Ertz, Cardinals ($6,200)

Ertz has hit double-figure DK factors in every of his previous 4 video games, with out scoring any touchdowns. He is caught at the least six passes and averaged over 10 targets/recreation throughout that stretch. Los Angeles is only a middle-of-the-road protection towards tight ends, so we anticipate Ertz’s manufacturing to be there, and a landing might have him knocking on the door of 20 factors.


FLEX: RB Chase Edmonds, Cardinals ($5,000)

Edmonds (ribs, toe) is anticipated to play, and he is an ideal worth possibility for full-PPR scoring. His wage is extraordinarily beneficiant given his upside, even with James Conner again within the lineup. He ought to see double-digit carries and 5 or extra targets, so just a few explosive performs would make him a viable DFS play.

FLEX: Los Angeles Rams D/ST ($3,800)

In opposition to the high-powered Cardinals offense, this should not be a chalky choice. Nevertheless, we’re relying on a robust Rams defensive surge towards a cold and warm Kyler Murray. The offense hasn’t been fairly the identical with out DeAndre Hopkins and between interceptions, fumbles, and sacks, it has surrendered loads of fantasy factors to D/STs these days. Would not this really feel like a traditional spot for an Aaron Donald classic efficiency?
