DK Showdown CIN/CLE 9/17/20

Week two kicks off with a divisional game between Cincinnati and Cleveland. The Browns are coming off an underwhelming week one game against the Ravens, while the Bengals played tough against the Chargers, losing at the end of the game.

So what direction do you go in this contest?

Burrow ($16,200) and Mayfield ($15,300) are the most expensive options for captain. I actually like pivoting off the QBs for captain and came back to them later in the lineup. One player that I WOULD target for captain is Mixon ($12,900). While he only had 69 rush yards on 19 attempts and one reception for two yard, I do expect him to do better. JK Dobbins went for two scores against this Browns defense.

So lets fill the rest of your lineup.

Burrow ($10,800) played well against the Chargers. I like him in this contest as well and wouldn’t mind stacking either AJ Green ($9,000) or Tyler Boyd ($7,000) with him.

So what is going on with the browns backfield. Hunt ($7,400) outpaced Chubb ($7,600) in week one. I don’t mind playing the RB from Cleveland, but which one? There is a great deal of risk here playing either of them. I personally would steer clear of this until we see what the usage is for a few weeks.

I like targeting Hooper ($6,800) in this lineup. He is a cheaper option. NJoku scored the lone TD during week one and is now on the IR. Hooper was only targeted twice during week one (against a tough Ravens defense).

I actually like plugging in one of the kickers during this contest. I can see a scenario where between 3-6 combined FGs are made during this contest. Siebert was a Brown during week one, and is a Bengal during week two. Parkey ($4,400) is set to see the kicking duties for Cleveland, while Bullock ($4,200) looks to be clear of injury and see the kicking duties for the Bengals.
