The previous few conferences have been blowouts, however maybe that development will change on Sunday Night time Soccer in Week 3. Whereas many are count on a San Francisco victory, we’re fading Jimmy Garoppolo in our DraftKings Showdown lineup. As an alternative, we’re concentrating on a couple of of the extra maligned 49ers gamers, in addition to a few conventional Inexperienced Bay stars to guide us to DFS glory.

Rodgers is all the time going to be a lovely possibility for captaincy when he’s flanked by his supporting forged.

FLEX: WR Davante Adams, Packers ($11,400)
We’re not going to faux to have a beat on which Packers stud earns prime honors this week. The most effective technique is to cowl your bases and do a second lineup with Jones ($11,200) on this spot. Adams has but to attain or be focused 10-plus occasions. Each will change sooner fairly than later.
FLEX: TE George Kittle, 49ers ($8,200)
Kittle has been comparatively quiet this season (8-95 on 9 targets), however it doesn’t take a lot to get him barreling towards certainly one of his 25-plus-point performances. Merely put, this isn’t the time to fade the All-Professional tight finish.
FLEX: WR Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers ($5,600)
By all counts, Aiyuk has seemed good in observe and has maintained knowledgeable mindset, so studies of him being in Shanahan’s doghouse could have been barely — or wholly — overblown. His snaps climbed to 38 from 26 in Week 2, and we’re going to see his fantasy manufacturing climb ahead of later, as nicely. It is smart it will occur this week with Jaire Alexander giving Deebo Samuel all he can deal with on the opposite aspect of the sector.
FLEX: Ok Robbie Gould, 49ers ($4,000)
When these groups met in 2018 and ’19, 49ers kickers — Chase McLaughlin and Robbie Gould — averaged 15 fantasy factors. We don’t make a behavior of hopping on the bandwagon over such a small pattern, however when so many key items are nonetheless in place — and Gould’s wage is $4,000 — it’s price giving some additional consideration to the earlier outcomes.
FLEX: RB Trey Sermon, 49ers ($3,000)
With Elijah Mitchell “uncertain” due to a shoulder harm, Sermon is in line to get his first crack on the lead position. That’s an excessive amount of alternative to cross up at his worth. The Niners have averaged 33 rushes per recreation thus far, so he’ll have loads of possibilities to repay this paltry price ticket. Sermon will seemingly be a chalky choose, however with Trenton Cannon, Jacques Patrick, and Kerryon Johnson serving as his backups, it is robust to fade him.
