The final game of Week 10 will go down in Soldier Field, as the 5-4 Chicago Bears host the 3-5 Minnesota Vikings. Both teams are chasing the Green Bay Packers who lead the NFC North at 7-2. Despite their last place record, the Vikings have shown more fantasy production from their individual players this season, but the Bears are likely going to have the best shot at a value play hitting in the showdown this Monday night.

The bulk of the fantasy points are going to go to Dalvin Cook, Allen Robinson (questionable), Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielenand Justin Jefferson. The question is, who are those one or two players further down the radar that will become critical in this game and help you roster more studs in the DraftKings Showdown?

Cordarrelle Patterson, Bears, WR, $5,200
Ryan Nall, RB, Bears, $6,200

David Montgomery is out this week with a concussion, which will give Patterson and Nall a big chunk of work tonight. The question is, who will get the biggest share and be the most productive? Nall is fast for his size and looked good as a receiver last week, but Patterson is the only other running back to run the ball since Tarik Cohen went down. Lamar Miller will also be activated for this game, but he was let go by the Patriots earlier in the season and has been on the Bears practice squad for over a month. He’s not the player he once was and I’m not worried about him seeing many touches. In the end, I like Patterson to get the most touches, but both have upside at their price.

Kyle Rudolph, TE, $3,400

With Irv Smith Jr. out for this game, Rudolph should see an uptick in work and at his price, he’s a good play to help you get Dalvin Cook on your roster, which is likely a must considering the how well he’s been playing.

Darnell Mooney, WR, Bears, $6,600

Mooney has shown that he can be a starting receiver in this league, but Nick Foles isn’t going to make things easy for him. Allen Robinson is questionable for this game, and after being limited in practice all week, he truly is a game-time decision. If he can’t go, Mooney is a must play in my mind, but if he does, I still like Mooney as a good upside shot.
