Thursday Night Showdown Daily Fantasy Lineups

The NFL season is so close to kickoff we can taste it. After you set your weekly lineups for you season long leagues, the best way to celebrate kickoff is by trying your luck at winning money from the first game. In the first game of the season we see the defending NFC North champions facing off against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

Before I dive into the DraftKings Showdown lineups, here are my betting predictions for those of you looking to make an extra buck or two.

But even before that, I have some exciting news! Game Winning Turnover was selected by Feedspot as one of the Top 50 Fantasy Football Blogs on the web! Check out the list at the link below:

Okay, now back to the good stuff.

Chicago (-3) over Green Bay

This is a soft line given the fact that Green Bay went 6-9-1 last year while Chicago won the division. Chicago with the spread should be a lock.

Under 46.5 points

My projected final score is 27-17 in favor of the Bears which adds up to 44 points. Just barely under the O/U line.

Showdown Lineups

For those of you unfamiliar with the Showdown format, it is a format that DraftKings introduced last year where you pick one team captain whose point total is multiplied by 1.5 then you select five other FLEX players giving you a total of six players in your lineup.

GPP Lineup

Captain – RB David Montgomery ($12,300)

FLEX – WR Davante Adams ($12.600)

FLEX – QB Aaron Rodgers ($12,400)

FLEX – RB Mike Davis ($4,200)

FLEX – K Mason Crosby ($3,200)

FLEX – D/ST Bears ($5,000)

Cash Game Lineup

Captain – QB Mitch Trubisky ($17,400)

FLEX – RB Tarik Cohen ($8,400)

FLEX – WR Geronimo Allison ($7,400)

FLEX – TE Jimmy Graham ($4,600)

FLEX – WR Allen Robinson II ($8,600)

FLEX – K Eddy Pineiro ($3,400)

These lineups are subject to change before kickoff on Thursday. Be sure to refer back to this post for any updates before you submit your lineups Thursday night. Good luck all!
