All lineups in this Thursday Night Football Building Block Lineups article for DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft, are built with ownership projections in mind. I have also lightly researched via Lineup Study past Showdown Slate winners this season prior to creating these building blocks.
I see the path to victory being some type of a 4-2 Jets vs. Broncos format with a WR in the captain spot. I am not entirely confident in the health of Crowder, although, I would not be shocked to see him peppered with targets if fully healthy. I am hoping a guy like Braxton Berrios stays on the field no matter what and garners a red zone touchdown. Chris Hogan is also hobbled as well, which potentially means Berrios is going to keep his snaps no matter what. I think the Jets DEF needs to be looked at as well, as there will be Pick-6 potential if the Jets manage to have a multiple score lead in the fourth quarter.
It’s a bit easier to plug virtually everyone in that you want. I think you need to get really unique there due to only having 5 rosters spots. Throwing in Berrios in the MVP spot while others plug in MG3, Darnold, or Crowder, will allow you to remain unique. Notice I still used Darnold for the stack correlation. I then added Patrick and Fant hoping for a surprise shootout.
Similar to FanDuel, it’s quite easy to make lineups that you feel comfortable with. But I think being unique is going to be the key. If Sam Ficken kicks 3-4 field goals, he honestly could end up being the play in the CHAMPION spot. It’ll be an ugly night of football if this is the case but it’s worth a shot. Otherwise, I think some type of core similar to this is the likely route to victory with Fant in the CHP spot and both Ficken and Berrios rostered.
