MVP Options

Both teams have strong rushing defenses but middle-of-the-pack pass defenses, hinting at a balanced game.

Jalen Hurts ($16,000) is a dual-threat quarterback but faces competition from Baker Mayfield ($14,000), who’s in a surprisingly favorable matchup.

In the receiving department, Mike Evans ($14,500) and Chris Godwin ($10,500) for Tampa, and DeVonta Smith ($12,500) and A.J. Brown ($12,000) for Philly are worth considering.

In cash games, you can stack these wide receivers instead of picking a quarterback, while tournament strategy may vary based on how you feel Hurts’ will perform.

Flex Options

D’Andre Swift ($11,500) and Rachaad White ($11,000) had strong outings last week, but Swift’s role is uncertain with the return of Kenneth Gainwell ($10,000). White remains a solid choice due to his snap share and pass-catching ability.

At tight end, Dallas Goedert ($9,500) and Cade Otton ($7,500) are on the field for most snaps. Otton has seen more targets recently.

Defense is an option too. The Philadelphia D/ST ($9,000) has a higher pressure rate, but an offense-oriented lineup may be preferred.

Kickers Chase McLaughlin ($8,500) and Jake Elliott ($8,500) are considerations, with McLaughlin having an edge due to Tampa’s red zone struggles.

For sleeper picks, watch out for Tampa’s rookies Trey Palmer ($8,000) and Sean Tucker ($7,000).

Consider These Strategies

  1. Kickers and DSTs: Limit your lineup to a maximum of 2 kickers and DSTs.
  2. QB-WR Pairing: If you choose a wide receiver as your captain, pair them with their respective quarterback.Β 
  3. Expensive Pass Catchers: If you select an expensive pass catcher as your captain, include at most 1 other pass catcher from the same team. This applies to players like Smith, Brown, Evans, and Godwin.
  4. Captaining Hurts or Mayfield: If your captain is Hurts, make sure to include at least 1 pass catcher in your lineup.
  5. Eagles Pass Catchers: Given the low passing volume of the Eagles’ offense, consider having at most 2 of Smith, Brown, and Goedert in your lineup.
  6. Swift vs. Gainwell: If you captain Swift or Gainwell, exclude the other from your lineup.
