It is at all times a deal with when the Packers and 49ers meet on the gridiron. That is the matchup we’re being served in Week 3’s version of Sunday Night time Soccer. Most analysts are choosing the 49ers to prevail at residence, and Vegas books opened the Niners as four-point favorites with a complete of 47.5. Even so, we’re going to fade Jimmy Garoppolo in our FanDuel single sport lineup. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan simply has too some ways to take the ball out of Garoppolo’s palms in scoring areas, so we’re pinning our DFS fortunes on the again of the QB who’s initially from California as an alternative of the one who at present performs there.
As at all times, here is a fast reminder of FanDuel’s scoring system for single-game contests: The purpose whole for the “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, however he would not price any extra cash just like the “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel’s default scoring is half-point PPR and four-point passing TDs, and there are no bonuses for 300-yard/100-yard video games like on DraftKings.

FLEX: RB Aaron Jones, Packers ($13,000)
Jones ushered a variety of comeback fantasy wins on Monday night time, so he’s going to have a couple of further admirers on this slate. Davante Adams ($14,000) works right here, as properly, so submitting a number of lineups isn’t a poor technique. Each are going to be closely concerned and a risk to attain a number of touchdowns.
FLEX: TE George Kittle, 49ers ($11,500)
Kittle has obtained simply 9 targets this yr, so his modest manufacturing so far is to be anticipated. He’s at all times a risk to ship 20-plus FanDuel factors.

FLEX: WR Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers ($9,500)
Aiyuk buyers are actually pissed off by now, however there are indicators suggesting that the second-year receiver is inching towards a 2021 breakthrough. His snaps elevated from 26 to 38 in Week 2, and recommendations of his ”immaturity” appear overblown. He’s too dynamic of a weapon to be uncared for, so as soon as he’s in “sport form,” search for him to start out making noise. There is a good likelihood that may occur this week with Jaire Alexander shadowing Deebo Samuel.
FLEX: RB Trey Sermon, 49ers ($8,500)
If Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) misses Sunday night time’s contest as anticipated, Sermon will get his likelihood to steer the 49ers’ floor assault and maybe grab the No. 1 function. The 49ers are fourth within the NFL with 66 dashing makes an attempt, so loads of quantity may very well be heaped onto Sermon’s plate if he’s as much as the duty.
