DraftKings NFL Top DFS Picks for Eagles vs. Vikings Thursday Night Showdown

Welcome to the NFL Top DFS Picks for Eagles vs. Vikings Thursday Night Showdown! For each primetime game this season, I will be providing you with my favorite plays at the Captain, MVP, and Superstar positions as well as the flex position for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo. 

Captain/MVP/SuperStar Plays

Justin Jefferson, WR ($18.600 (DK), $16,000 (FD), $39 (Yahoo))

Week 2 of the season kicks off with what should be a great game as the Vikings head to Philly to take on the Eagles. Not that I am going out on a limb here but with the Eagles missing James Bradberry and their starting safety Justin Jefferson makes for a top play across all sites at the multipler spot. 

Jefferson is coming off a massive game where he hauled in 9 of his 12 targets for 150 yards. He did not find the end zone I am expecting him to do so here with the Eagles secondary banged up. Last week the Eagles allowed Mac Jones to throw for over 300 yards with Kendrick Bourne going for 2 scores and over 60 yards receiving. Jefferson should be in for a huge day.

T.J Hockenson, TE ($10,200 (DK), $10,000 (FD), $19 (Yahoo))

Sticking with wanting to attack the Eagles through the air we come to a pay-down option in the multiplier spots in Tj Hockenson. Last week Hockenson saw 9 targets and caught 8 of them. While the yards may not have been in there in a tough grind-it-out battle against the Bucs, I am expecting them to be there this week. If the Eagles focus all of their attention on Jefferson this is going to leave Hockenson to have a potentially big game especially if the volume continues to be there which it should. 

Flex Plays

D’Andre Swift, RB ($4000 (DK), $8.500 (FD), $16 (Yahoo))

Kenneth Gainwell has been ruled out for the Eagles which leaves D’Andre Swift and Rashaad Penny as their main two backs. Both are very cheap but I want to focus on Swift as it looks to be expected he will take on a similar role to what Gainwell had last week with Penny and Scott more than likely seeing the short yardage carries. Gainwell in addition to his 14 carries last week saw 4 targets in the passing game and we have Swift do a ton of damage over the years in the passing game this could be a great spot for him if he sees 4-5 targets this week. 

That will do it for me, If you want to receive my entire player pool along with notes for this game and for each main slate be sure to join us at Team Rise or Fall! It’s only $4.79 for your first month with us!
