Last Updated: Jan 9, 2021

Here’s our preview of the best Ravens-Titans DraftKings DFS Showdown Picks for NFL Wild-Card Playoffs and our best choice for Ravens-Titans Showdown Captain.

This article will provide you some of the best daily fantasy takes for DraftKings showdown contest between the Baltimore Ravens and the Tennessee Titans. In DraftKings formats, the showdown captain mode is unique from the traditional daily fantasy lineups.

These contests are based on one game and when constructing your lineup, there is a crown icon that represents your team captain. The player you choose for the captain spot will have his fantasy points multiplied by 1.5 points.

Ravens-Titans Showdown Captain

On top of the captain’s points being multiplied by 1.5 points, a player selected for the captain position will cost more than if they had been selected as a utility player. The player that I would recommend in this matchup would be Ravens rookie running back J.K. Dobbins ($15,000).

Dobbins has scored double-digit fantasy points in his last six games and finished third in running back scoring in Week 17. Coupling this with the Titans allowing 25 points or more to running backs in four of their last seven games, Dobbins has a real shot to be a smash play.

Ravens-Titans Showdown Stack

If you are new to daily fantasy, the term stacking means player two players from the same team, in an effort to double your points. In this matchup, my stack of choice is Ryan Tannehill ($10,400) and Corey Davis ($8,000).

While the Ravens have not allowed much to wide receivers in their last three games, those games came against teams that ranked in the top-12 in fewest team passing yards.

Prior to that, including a Week 11 matchup against the Titans, the Ravens had four straight games in the top-10 in most points allowed to wide receivers. Corey Davis had scored 19.3 points in Week 11 against the Ravens and comes into this week costing you $1,400 less than A.J. Brown ($9,400).

Ravens-Titans Showdown Value Plays

When selecting top tier players, you could find yourself in a position to select a player or two that are at a low cost. One of those players I would target in this matchup would be Dez Bryant ($3,600).

While the former Cowboys star has had just one reception in each of his last two games, both of those receptions would wind up being touchdowns. Over the last three weeks, the Titans have been in the top-10 in points allowed to the wide receiver position.

Kickers matter in most daily fantasy football leagues, and with that, my second selection would be Justin Tucker ($3,800). On the season, Tucker ranks seventh among kickers in DraftKings scoring and has scored eight or more points in his last five games.
