DFS Showdown prices for Texans-Bills Wild Card game

We break down the DraftKings Showdown prices for Texans vs. Bills. Josh Allen leads the way, but there are some sleeper Captain options.

The Houston Texans host the Buffalo Bills in the 2020 Wild Card round, and that brings with it DraftKings Showdown for the daily fantasy football crowd. You can play the full slate, but it can be more fun drilling down on a single game (or four single games if you want to play Showdown all weekend!).

DraftKings released pricing for the AFC Wild Card games on Tuesday, with NFC prices expected to drop on Wednesday. We’ve dropped the full range of prices, covering both the Captain slots and Flex slots.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen is the highest priced option, which I imagine would have shocked most people back in September. Allen is an inconsistent passer, but his strong work on the ground coupled with enough in the passing game has turned him into a fantasy start. The Texans rank 29th in DKFP allowed to quarterbacks, whereas the Bills rank sixth. It’s no surprise Allen is more expensive than DeShaun Watson, even as Watson is the superior quarterback.

Among Captain options, DeAndre Hopkins will likely get some love, but if you really want to roll the dice, one of John Brown or Cole Beasley is likely to secure a large target share on Saturday. If you choose wisely, you could benefit in a big way.
