DFS SNF Showdown Picks Week 4


The Sunday Night Football game for Week 4 was supposed to be one of the best games of the season. We were scheduled to get Patrick Mahomes vs. Aaron Rodgers, but the Jets QB was injured on the first drive of the season and now the Chiefs are 9.5 point favorites. The experts in the desert do not think this game will be close, but maybe week can get a decent game for a Showdown Contest.

Here are my Showdown Contest picks for the Sunday Night Football game…



There will be people who try to make this Showdown Contest harder than it needs to be. PATRICK MAHOMES is by far the best play on the slate. The Chiefs spread the ball around so much that it is hard to justify playing anyone from the Chiefs in the Captain Position other than Mahomes or maybe TRAVIS KELCE. Mahomes should be locked into all Captain Positions in Cash Contest lineups and most Tournament Contest lineups.

TRAVIS KELCE is almost a lock to score a TD Sunday Night. I am sure he told Patrick Mahomes that he wants to show off for his new girlfriend. Kelce will be in most of my lineups and in the Captain Position in some Tournament Contest lineups.

ISAIAH PECHECO has a tough match up vs. the Jets Defense, but he is the best choice from the Chiefs at the RB position. He could get a lot of work if the Chiefs get a big lead…. JERRICK MCKINNON will be my pivot from Pecheco. McKinnon scored two TDs last week and he could get another one on Sunday Night Football. Patrick Mahomes likes to look for him in the redzone.

The Chiefs WRs are hard to trust. The best choice this year has been RASHEE RICE. He will be the WR I will use the most from the Chiefs, but I will also sprinkle in some SKYY MOORE and MARCUS VALDES-SCANTLING….. JUSTIN WATSON and NOAH GRAY are really good “punt plays” in this Showdown Slate.




I typically play both QBs in my Showdown Contests, but I want nothing to do with ZACH WILSON in this game. He is the worst QB in the NFL and the Chiefs have been playing really well on defense this year. Most of the players I use in this game will be from the Chiefs side of the ball, but I will sprinkle in some of the Jets.

GARRETT WILSON is one of the best WRs in the NFL, but can Wilson get him the ball. He had a long TD in Week 2 against the Cowboys. He may need to do the same Sunday Night to be worth his price tag.

BREECE HALL is really good. He has a chance to score well “if” the Jets give him the ball. The problem is that Hall may get taken out of the game if the Chiefs get a big lead. I will still have a few shares of Hall….. TYLER CONKLIN is a decent “punt play” from the Jets Sunday night.














Good Luck Tonight!
