SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Sunday Night Football this week features a pivotal NFC matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Daily Football players are already working to construct their lineups for Sunday Night competitions like the DraftKings $1 Million Sunday Night Showdown.

This particular DFS competition gives each player the opportunity to draft a team of six players, with one player as the team captain. Each player is given $50,000 and must draft six players with predetermined cost values.

Looking at the options for this week allows bettors to select the six best players to construct the perfect Daily Fantasy lineup.

Captain – Nick Mullens, QB, 49ers – $14,700

The quarterbacks in this week’s SNF aren’t exactly the most elite choices. With Jimmy Garropolo still injured, fan-favorite Nick Mullens will get the start once again. For the Eagles, Carson Wentz is still the QB but has been under heavy criticism due to his poor play in recent weeks.

If Wentz continues his poor performances, it could easily lead to him getting benched in favor of Jalen Hurts in a desperate move by Doug Peterson. For that reason, Mullens is the better pick, as he put up a solid 20.7 points with 343 yards last week.

George Kittle, TE, 49ers – $9,400

After Mullens, the next pick for legal daily fantasy players should go to his biggest weapon George Kittle.

Kittle is available at a great price and is the biggest red-zone threat for a Niners offense that will look to score early and often.

Kittle is making his return to the lineup from injury and will likely be a safety blanket for Mullens.

Miles Sanders, RB, Eagles – $9,200

Sanders gets the third pick for the lineup due to his high volume. Sanders put up 14.7 points last week on 18 carries and appears to be the leading back for Philly. This is in comparison to Jerrick McKinnon, who will likely get fewer touches this week.

Kendrick Bourne, WR, 49ers – $5,800

The next pick goes to Niners wideout Kendrick Bourne, who is available for a cheap price for his value. Bourne puts up around 10 points a game and has a great matchup against the Eagles secondary that should leave him open a number of times.

Greg Ward, WR, Eagles – $5,000

Ward is a great flex choice this week after a breakout performance in his last game that saw him go for 20.6 fantasy points. Ward caught 8 passes on 11 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown, and could easily have formed some trust with Wentz that could have him repeat his production.

49ers Defense, D/ST – $5,600

While picking a defense isn’t a sexy choice for DFS players, the Niners defense has a tremendously favorable NFL matchup against the Eagles offense. The Eagles have had tons of trouble putting up points so far, while the Niners were able to scoop up three turnovers in their last game.

Take the Niners in this slot and enjoy rooting for Wentz to collapse under the pressure of Sunday Night primetime.
