Bills against Patriots on Monday night football in week 16 is very different from those teams' last games. Buffalo is a big favorite, and our DraftKings showdown lineup is clearly betting that the odds makers are right.
We only used one seat for a New England player and spent $ 1.4,000 of our $ 60,000 salary cap on that seat. Otherwise it's just bills, including Josh Allen as captain and Buffalo defense in our grouping. If the bills dominate we'll sit nicely.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Bills Against Patriots
Captain (1.5x Price, 1.5x Points): QB Josh Allen, Bills ($ 18,900)
New England slowed Allen down significantly when these teams first met, but it shouldn't be this time. Buffalo and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll should have adjustments in hand that will allow everyone to thrive in a game the Bills are trying to dominate.
FLEX: WR Stefon Diggs, Invoices ($ 11,000)
Stephon Gilmore who? The star cornerback is out for the season and will miss his revenge rematch, and no one in New England will be able to cover Diggs. He's seen at least nine goals from Week 7 in every game and that workload will pay off again for us.
FLEX: WR Cole Beasley, bills ($ 10,000)
Beasley is basically always open. He has great chemistry with everyone, and while you might make fun of his price, he is a serious weapon in the DK total. If New England finds a way to take Diggs out of the game for longer stretches, Allen should turn to Beasley to get things done.
FLEX: D / ST Invoices ($ 5,400)
When we play so little of New England, we basically have to use the Buffalo Defense. This is the best way to maximize our position here. If we're right that New England is fighting Buffalo, then that should mean a ton of points for the Bill's D / ST (and maybe Andre Roberts will get a kick in the house).
FLEX: WR John Brown, Invoices ($ 2,800)
You need to confirm that Brown is enabled via IR for this process. This is currently the expectation. Its price has come down significantly in his absence, but it is now an absolute steal when he plays, even if it is a reduced role. If Brown doesn't come back, we'll play the Isaiah McKenzie wide receiver gadget.
FLEX: TE Dalton Keene, Patriots ($ 1,400)
It's between Keene and Devin Asiasi for our only representative in New England. Keene played two more snaps last week and seen one more target than Asiasi, and that's our determining factor. You're just hoping for a few points at this low price point while Buffalo dominates the game.
