Week 7 Thursday Night Showdown DFS Primer (Broncos at Browns) PREMIUM
There is an unusually high number of moving parts this week. Thus, with numerous players injured and truly questionable for both the Broncos and the Browns, I’ve included the most players in the table I’ve featured in a showdown slate to date.
Game: Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns
Spread: CLE -3.5 Points
Over/Under: 42.5 Points
Broncos Analysis: Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a foot/ankle injury, casting doubt on his availability this week. Still, head coach Vic Fangio voiced optimism regarding Bridgewater starting. Unfortunately, even if Bridgewater starts, there is a real risk the injury could limit his effectiveness or result in an early exit. The veteran signal-caller came out of the blocks hot this year, but his caliber of play has slipped lately. Though, even in an ugly effort last week, he piled up 334 passing yards and three touchdowns with his three interceptions. Of course, quarterbacks are always viable picks on a single-game slate, but I won't fault gamers for fading Bridgewater.
