It’s at all times a deal with when the Packers and 49ers meet on the gridiron. That’s the matchup we’re being served in Week 3’s version of Sunday Night Football. Most analysts are choosing the 49ers to prevail at house, 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 recreation lineup. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan simply has too some ways to take the ball out of Garoppolo’s fingers in scoring areas, so we’re pinning our DFS fortunes on the again of the QB who’s initially from California as a substitute of the one who presently performs there.
As at all times, here is a fast reminder of FanDuel’s scoring system for single-game contests: The level whole for the “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, however he would not price any further 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 number of comeback fantasy wins on Monday night time, so he’s going to have a number of further admirers on this slate.

FLEX: TE George Kittle, 49ers ($11,500)
Kittle has obtained simply 9 targets this 12 months, so his modest manufacturing so far is to be anticipated. He’s at all times a risk to ship 20-plus FanDuel factors.

Aiyuk buyers are actually pissed off by now, however there are indicators suggesting that the second-year receiver is inching towards a 2021 breakthrough.

He’s too dynamic of a weapon to be uncared for, so as soon as he’s in “recreation form,” search for him to begin making noise. There’s a very good probability 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 probability to steer the 49ers’ floor assault and maybe snatch the No. 1 position. The 49ers are fourth within the NFL with 66 speeding makes an attempt, so loads of quantity could possibly be heaped onto Sermon’s plate if he’s as much as the duty.
