Monday Night Football Draft Picks: NFL DFS Squad Tips for the Giants-Buccaneers Showdown Week 11
The Monday Night Football Game of Week 11 features the Giants and the Buccaneers, both of whom will be bidding their goodbyes for the week. Despite their Week 9 loss to the Washington Soccer Team, the Bucs remain among the Super Bowl favorites. Meanwhile, The Giants are just trying to put together a few good performances after winning two of their past three games. With Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Rob Gronkowski (return) expected to return, there’s no shortage of viable DFS picks for the DraftKings Showdown roster.
Here are the key scoring settings for DraftKings Showdown contests: They Full point PPR and have three-point bonus for 300 yards of passing, 100 yards rush, and 100 yards receive. The captain costs 1.5 times the player’s original price, but he also gets his total score multiplied by 1.5.

DraftKings: Giants vs. Slideshow Selection. Buccaneers
Budget $50,000, need at least one player from each team.
Captain (1.5x value, 1.5x score): RB Saquon Barkley, Giant ($11,700)
This is a classic, high-risk decision. We don’t know to what extent Barkley will return to action, but we do know how explosive he is. The Buccaneers’ usually solid defense could have had a few more holes with Vita Vea (knee) to miss the competition. Tampa also allows for a large amount of acceptance to run backwards, so Barkley has more moves in DraftKings’ full-point PPR format.
FLEX: RB Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers ($10,000)
Fournette continues to produce and dominate numbers in the Bucs backyard. He’s raced 17.0 DraftKings points in two of his past three games and has handled 33.3% of Bucs touchdowns this season. Bucs is much-loved, and if this game fails, Fournette is entitled to another full share of the job.

FLEX: WR Chris Godwin, Buccaneers ($9,400)
Both Godwin and Mike Evans ($10,200) are high-stakes plays with Antonio Brown (ankle) out. We pick Godwin because of DraftKings’ all-point PPR and the fact that he’s caught eight passes from over 100 yards in two of his past three games. He leads the Bucs table with 77 goals (31 in the past three games) and reels with 74 percent of the passes coming his way.
FLEX: WR Kenny Golladay, Giant ($7,000)
Don’t worry about Golladay’s modest performance (three goals, two catches, 28 yards) in his Week 9 return to action, which can be explained by quarterback Daniel Jones just trying to pull off. 20 passes. This seems like a position that would require the Giants to retreat significantly more often, giving Golladay and Co more opportunities.
FLEX: WR Kadarius Toney, Giant ($6,800)
Toney’s Week 5 breakout feels like a distant memory, but he’s still healthy after dealing with a few injuries and the match suggested heavier passing volume from the G-Men. The giants will have nearly as full a toy cabinet as they have had in a matter of weeks. Toney likely won’t come close to the top 13 goals of his season, but he should be given the opportunity to strike favorable games.
FLEX: WR Tyler Johnson, Buccaneers ($5,000)
Johnson is the obvious third pick behind Godwin and Evans, but he’s slowly gaining the team’s trust – he’s seen 11 goals in his past two games and plays with 64% or more in the last three games. We don’t expect a flashy stat line, but a big game or an encounter is not out of the question.
