TNF Showdown DFS – 49ers vs Cardinals

Week 8 MNF

The 7-0 San Francisco 49ers and their top defense travel to face the fast paced Arizona Cardinals in a sneaky good TNF Showdown game.




RB – Tevin Coleman

This has less to do with his big 4 TD game last week in a spot when The Ambush was all over him and more to do with the injury report and the matchup.  The 49ers backfield is banged up with Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert both questionable but likely to play.  All in all, with the question marks on the secondary backs for the 49ers we have to like the volume tonight for Coleman.

TE – George Kittle

Tight ends have torched the Cardinals and last week was no different as Josh Hill, Dan Arnold and Taysom Hill all were wide open most of the game for the Saints.  Kittle has been excellent in his run blocking but should be able to be a viable target for the 49ers passing game tonight, making him a great Showdown Captain option.


Other Top SF Options:   Jimmy Garoppolo, Emmanuel Sanders

Sneaky Value:  Kendrick Bourne



QB – Kyler Murray

It’s a tough matchup against the #1 pass defense statistically but Murray at home should play better than he has recently on the road.  Look for the #1 pick to have a big game rushing tonight.

K – Zane Gonzalez

If the Cardinals struggle in the red zone (common lately) then Zane could have a huge game.  I see lots of possessions possible tonight and Zane has four straight double digit scoring games.  He’s a good target on the showdown.


Other Top ARI Options:  Larry Fitzgerald, Zach Zenner, Cardinals DEF

FADE:  Kenyan Drake … I know the volume argument should be made for Kenyan Drake as well but not against the 9ers defense.



Kyler Murray rushing yards OVER

George Kittle receptions OVER


Final score prediction:   Cardinals pull the upset 26-23
