SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: VIKINGS AT BRONCOS

Vikings (20.5) AT Broncos (22.5)

QB

Josh Dobbs 10.6K has looked great in both appearances for the Vikings but now travels to Denver. The Broncos have improved quite a bit over the last 4 weeks and have only allowed 1 QB to score over 20 DK points (Mahomes). Dobbs has the highest price on the slate and holds big rushing upside scoring on the ground in both games for Minnesota. I will look to take an underweight stance on him tonight at this price tag as I like Denver quite a bit tonight and think they will limit Dobbs. Dobbs has a pass/rush prop of 258.5 yards tonight and is +295 to score a touchdown.

Russ now has his price up at 10K this week off a solid performance for him but still was not able to reach that 20+ DK point threshold in 5 weeks now. I do like Denver a lot tonight to win this game and think Russ has a great opportunity to score upwards of 20 points tonight. I will still limit him to my Flex position tonight as I like the skill position players better for Captain. Wilson has a pass/rush prop of 235.5 yards.

RB

Alexander Mattison will play tonight but is expected to split work with Ty Chandler. Both RBs are priced in the low 7Ks, and I would lean to Chandler over Mattison as he has way more upside in my opinion. Mattison hasn’t rushed for 50 yards in 6 straight games and will be under projecting him for the Flex. Chandler played 32 of 73 snaps last week and rushed for 45 yards and one touchdown. Mattison has a rush prop of 36.5 yards and Chandler sits at 35.5 yards and both have similar TD props around +200.

Javonte Williams a guy I talked up last week and had him as a top captain option. Williams keeps improving his fantasy production in 4 straight games now and hit the 20+ DK mark for the first-time last week vs Buffalo. He has now scored in back-to-back games and has 25+ touches in both games as well. The Vikings are giving up around 20 points to the position in the last 4 games and Williams will once again be a top Captain for me. Perine played on 25 of 75 snaps last week and scored 7.3 points keeping him as a solid cheapie at only 3.2K. Javonte has a rush/rec prop of 91.5 yards and is the favorite to score a TD in the game at even money.

WR

Jordan Addison leads the Vikes pass catchers at 8.4K and has 7+ targets in his last 4 games with 50+ yards and 3 touchdowns. Addison will see a tough matchup tonight vs Pat Surtain and that will keep him as a Flex only option for me tonight. KJ Osborn has cleared the concussion protocol and is on track to play tonight. I like the price tag here for KJ and think he makes for a great Flex option tonight. Brandon Powell has a cheap tag of 4K flat tonight. Dobbs targeted him 5 times last week as he caught 4 for 35 yards. He will be on the field for at least half the snaps tonight making him a solid Flex value option. Receiving props: Addison 45.5, Osborne 30.5, and Powell 22.5 yards.

The pass catchers for Russ tonight are highlighted by Courtland Sutton at 8.2K. Sutton has now scored in 4 straight games and 7 of 9 games this season. Sutton was targeted 11 times last week catching 8 for 53 yards and has been very consistent getting double digit fantasy points in all but 1 game. I will be overweight on Sutton in both the Captain and Flex spots tonight. Jerry Jeudy continues to underwhelm this year and only caught 3 passes last week for 35 yards. I think we can still use him at around 5% in the Captain spot based off his upside we have seen at times last year. Marvin Mims is overpriced here tonight for a guy with 0 yards over his last 4 games but does hold upside for a showdown slate. At 5.6K it will be very tough for me to click his name and most likely an easy fade. Humphrey caught a pass last week, but he is also a very thin option but much better price tag at only 1.8K. Receiving props: Sutton 49.5, Jeudy 42.5, and Mims 17.5 yards.

TE

T.J. Hockenson 9.4K smashed last week despite the poor reporting pregame from Ed Warner. Hock caught 11 of 15 targets for 134 yards and a touchdown. He now has double digit targets in both games with Dobbs. Hock is a guy I will be overweight on in the Captain and Flex position and would rather play him over Dobbs in a 1v1. TJ has a prop of 55.5 yards and is +205 to score tonight.

The Denver tight end position is virtually nonexistent as Adam Trautman has only caught 4 passes in the last 4 games and has 4 games with zero catches. At 3.6K I guess you could make a argument for him to be in play for the Flex position but I have a hard time clicking that button. Adam has a prop of 12.5 yards tonight.

DEF/K

We get both defenses fairly priced in the mid 4Ks tonight and think both are in play as Minnesota has had 8 interceptions in the last 5 games and Denver has 8 in the last 6 games. Both QBs are turnover prone and think they make solid value opitons. The kickers on the other hand are both priced in the low 5Ks. I will be around the field on these kickers as we could see 2-3 FGs from each team the way I think this game sets up.

Javonte Williams (CAPT) + Courtland Sutton + TJ Hockenson 6.4K left per position
