Welcome to the NFL Week 16 Christmas Day Slate!

Last week was a bust for our two-game Saturday slate, but if you played on Monday and Tuesday, we had some time with those games, didn’t we? The Monday games were pretty blah, which fit right in with the rest of the Week 15 slate, but things perked up a little on Tuesday. With no COVID postponements this week, we’re not only going to get two games on Christmas Day, but both have some really nice scoring potential for DFS.

Once again, we’re doing some individual game breakdowns below in case you want to play either on a Showdown slate, but the Playbook itself will be set up as if you are going to play the full day’s slate. Check out below for Captain seat picks, but given the nature of short slates, all dart throws will be in the Playbook itself. No need for a Dart Board here.

Also, be sure to check with the Fantasy Alarm NFL Week 16 Reserve/COVID list as that will be continuously updated throughout the day.

Again, for short slates – whether it’s single-game or a two-game slate – your focus should be on GPP tournaments only. There is just too much overlap for cash games and given the COVID situation of at least two of these teams, there could be a lot of last-minute pivots as news comes rolling in. Having some skin in the game is great, but recognize the fact that you should not be over-investing in these contests. We all want to hit the million-dollar jackpots, but, as I’ve always said, these are more lottery tickets than they are a skill-based contest.  

OK. Lecture over. Let’s get to tonight’s action.
