Rams vs. 49ers on Sunday Evening Soccer presents some added intrigue due to the San Francisco quarterback controversy between Jimmy Garoppolo and C.J. Beathard. We’re fading them fully in our DraftKings Showdown picks, and as a substitute profiting from a pricing miscalculation with Cam Akers to stack the remainder of our single-game NFL DFS lineup.
Akers’ low worth permits us to play 5 studs, with the bottom flex worth coming in nonetheless at $6.2K. That is mainly unparalleled, and Akers isn’t any schmuck within the captain spot. This lineup is likely to be considerably widespread, however it is also a safe-yet-high-upside play that is value making.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Rams vs. 49ers
Captain (1.5x worth, 1.5x factors): RB Cam Akers, Rams ($three,000)
DraftKings whiffed on the pricing on Akers. He had a $5,000 commonplace worth final week and is just $three,000 this week regardless of dashing for 61 yards on 9 carries final week and having Sean McVay say his workload would improve. Possibly he’ll be chalkier than low-priced guys usually are, however we’ll nonetheless take him.
FLEX: QB Jared Goff, Rams ($10,800)
The heavy damage toll San Francisco has confronted makes this a good matchup for Goff. There is no purpose he cannot lead his offense to 43 factors like Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins had every week in the past. A various passing assault like L.A.’s is typically robust to foretell, too, so having Goff will get us a bit of the whole lot.
FLEX: TE George Kittle, 49ers ($10,400)
He is the most effective participant on the 49ers, and we’re not going to fade him right here, particularly when it isn’t value taking part in the San Francisco quarterback. Kittle would be the most closely focused 49ers and for good purpose.
FLEX: RB Raheem Mostert, 49ers ($9,800)
Mostert’s return to well being every week in the past means he ought to be as much as full velocity for this one. He is already proven his big-play chops a number of instances this season on TDs longer than 70 yards. If he occurs to get one other of these, you will not win with out him in your lineup.
FLEX: WR Cooper Kupp, Rams ($9,000)
Robert Woods has had a number of video games higher than Kupp this 12 months, however Kupp continues to be the big-play risk for the Rams that we will decide as typically as we are able to. If L.A. struggles, perhaps Woods has the higher sport as a possession receiver. The Rams should not wrestle right here, and Kupp could possibly be a large outing.
FLEX: WR Deebo Samuel, 49ers ($6,200)
This ought to be the healthiest Samuel has been all season, which units as much as be key with the 49ers probably chasing on this sport. He’ll be focused within the passing sport and obtain handoffs, too, and he is at all times liable to interrupt an enormous one. Getting San Francisco’s three most expert offensive gamers makes up for fading their QB spot.
