An Interesting Matchup for DraftKings Week 15

Thursday Night Football is here, and we have an AFC West Division matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers visiting the Las Vegas Raiders. The line is set with the Raiders the favorite by three, with a game total of 54.5. We should see some fireworks here. Both teams are allowing over 27 points per game. For those that are new to the Showdown mode, the Captain gets 1.5x points but their salary is also 1.5x. Here is my lineup for TNF Showdown for DraftKings Week 15.

Hunter Henry ($8700) has scored double digits in three of his last four games. During that span, he has 27 targets, including 18 catches. For DraftKings scoring, the volume is there even though the yards and touchdown are not.


Up next we have Justin Herbert ($11,800) coming in scoring just under 24 PPG. The Raiders rank 14th versus QBs and are allowing 262.5 passing yards a game. With only 15 sacks on the season, that is good enough for 30th, which should allow Herbert to find some open teammates.


The last Charger I have in is Austin Ekeler ($10,400). In his three games back from injury, Ekeler has 24 receptions, which is massive when playing full point PPR leagues. Couple that with 37 rushing attempts, and Ekeler has averaged just under 20 PPG during this span. Bring on the Raiders, who rank 29th versus RBs.


On to the Raider players and Derek Carr ($10,000) is first up. He is coming in extremely hot, scoring over 64 total points in his last two games. Carr has thrown for over 300 yards in both of these matchups taking advantage of the Draftkings bonus. He has thrown five touchdowns and rushed in twice during these past two games.


With Henry Ruggs out, it is time to switch gears to Hunter Renfrow ($4800). Renfrow is already being used a lot in this Raiders offense. He has 22 targets over the last three games, hauling in 16 of them. With Ruggs out, Renfrow will see extra playing time on TNF!


Finally, the last play is kicker Daniel Carlson ($3600). Normally kickers are not in my lineup, but I wanted both QBs in. Carlson has been quite consistent on the year, averaging 9.8 PPG. He has only scored six or less, once on the season. Good luck on DraftKings NFL showdown mode!
