Seahawks vs. Vikings faces two teams near the top of the NFC on Monday night. Adam Thielen has already been ruled out, but most of the other stars seem solid options in the NFL DFS action. Our DraftKings Showdown lineup takes a heavy approach to Seattle, with Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett to deliver in tournaments for us.
The Lockett-Wilson stack is complemented by Rashaad Penny and Jacob Hollister, while we can still adapt Dalvin Cook along with Olabisi Johnson to a value with Thielen out.
DraftKings Showdown Picks: Seahawks vs. Vikings
CAPTAIN (1.5x points, 1.5x price): WR Tyler Lockett, Seahawks ($ 14,400)
We are not really sure why Lockett is priced lower than Stefon Diggs, but Lockett's connection to Russell Wilson is too good to ignore in this list of individual games. There is plenty of room for Lockett with its shorter receptions, and you also have the opportunity to overcome the top several times.
FLEX: RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings ($ 11,800)
With a heavy alignment construction of Seahawks, we had to make a call between Cook and Kirk Cousins. There was no point in playing Cousins without having space for Diggs, so we'll take 20 basically automatic Cook quality touches.
FLEX: QB Russell Wilson, Seahawks ($ 10,800)
Wilson is in the MVP conversation for a reason, and it would be silly not to stack it when we use his top receiver as our captain.
FLEX: RB Rashaad Penny, Seahawks ($ 5,400)
Penny could be popular at this price, although the remaining uncertainty about his new role could prevent him from being hit too much. No one else at this price has the possibility of 12-15 touches.
FLEX: TE Jacob Hollister, Seahawks ($ 4,800)
We needed to get one more Seattle receiver in this construction (you could play a kicker if you prefer). Hollister's price has dropped a little since a few weeks ago, which wouldn't have happened if Wilson hit him in an easy touchdown a week ago. Then, we will take the perceived drop in performance to value.
FLEX: WR Olabisi Johnson, Vikings ($ 2,600)
Adam Thielen has already been ruled out for Monday night, so Johnson is a bargain like the No. 2 Vikings WR for at least another week.
