Monday Night Showdown Slate- Giants @ Bucs


Giants @ Bucs (10.5)

O/U = 50



Giants against the run #6
Giants against the pass #15
Bucs against the run #4
Bucs against the pass #12



Sterling Shepard has been ruled out so Golladay, Toney, and Slayton will be the three Giants receivers.

Antonio Brown is out and Gronkowski is highly questionable.



Tom Brady, $11,200

  • Likely the most heavily owned, Brady in a primetime slate is tough to pass on.
  • Even in the last two week’s losses he still has 31 and 15 DK points.
  • Has only two games this season he has thrown less than 2 TDs.

Mike Evans, $10,200

  • Scored in each of his last three games (5 TDs total).
  • Four games this season with 20+ DK points
  • Will get shadow coverage from James Bradberry, but that is not enough for me to fade him completely in a one-game Showdown Slate.

Leonard Fournette, $10,000

  • Brady just peppers his backs with targets and Fournette is no exception (14 targets the last 2 weeks).
  • Five of his last six games he has 17+ DK points.
  • Should get more carries in this game than usual with the positive game script and poor NYG defense.
  • Giants give up the 4th most DK points to RBs.



Chris Godwin, $9,400

  • Continues to see massive volume (31 targets the last three weeks). In those three weeks he has two games over 100+ yards and 2 TDs.
  • Much of this has bee because of Browns absence and Brown is out again for this game.
  • 4th in the NFL in redzone targets (19)
  • Primarily in the slot, Godwin will be away from James Bradberry’s coverage



Bucs Defense, $5,200

  • We have seen a ton of defense scoring in Primetime games this season.
  • The Bucs are always intriguing because of their shutdown run defense that forces teams to pass.
  • A 10 point favorite at home should add to the probability of the Giants needing to throw a lot.
  • Daniel Jones has six turnovers himself the last four games.

Darius Slayton, $3,200

  • I don’t love many pieces of the Giants offense, but Slayton is at least cheap.
  • Very inconsistent this season, he has only two games with double digit DK points.
  • Shepard being out should result in more targets.


Deep Sleepers:

Giovani Bernard, $1,800

  • Ronald Jones is the #2 back, but Bernard will have more opportunity to score points being the third down back.
  • He has found the endzone three times this year and averages about 3-4 targets per game.
  • Game script does not necessarily favor him, but if he can get into the endzone he will pay off his price easy.


Possible lineups:

C- Godwin, Brady, Fournette, Toney, Bucs, Bernard

C- Brady, Evans, Godwin, T Johnson, Bucs, Slayton

C- Fournette, Brady, Godwin, Brate, Toney, Slayton

C- Godwin, Brady, Fournette, Golladay, Bucs, Rudolph
