Thursday Night DraftKings Showdown: Week 5
The Rams visit the Seahawks to kick off Week 5. I’ll be bringing this Thursday night preview each week breaking down this single-game slate for DraftKings contests as part of the Footballers’ DFS Pass.
This shouldn’t be a run-of-the-mill regular Thursday night game. There should be a lot of points scored as this contest is currently tied for the second-highest Over/Under (49) of the entire week. This should come as no surprise as both offenses are clicking right now. The Rams rank sixth in points per game (29.2) and seventh in yards per game (397.8) while the Seahawks rank ninth in points per game (25.8) and 13th in yards per game (377.8).
Thus, our process should keep us away from defenses in this one and instead, move us toward the Kickers.
Captain Spot Choices
Russell Wilson $15,900
Wilson is the home QB in this favorable fantasy game, is a complete and utter baller, ranks tenth in the league in passing yards per game (285.3), and offers rushing upside as well. This Rams defense isn’t as vaunted as we thought either as we just saw Jameis Winston pop them for 385 passing yards and four pass TDs.
