SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The Indianapolis Colts (+160) travel across the country to take on the San Francisco 49ers (-185) for a Sunday Night Football battle. Oddsmakers are not expecting a lot of points to be scored in this matchup, having set the game total at a mere 44 points.

DFS Showdown Prices

  • Jonathan Taylor- $15,000
  • Jimmy Garoppolo- $14,500
  • Carson Wentz- $14,000
  • Deebo Samuel- $13,000

While most DFS players will look to roster one of the quarterbacks or Jonathan Taylor at the MVP spot on FanDuel, players can gain an edge by slotting 49ers WR Deebo Samuel at the position. Samuel can be rostered at a nice discount too as he checks in as the 4th highest priced player on the FanDuel showdown slate.

Deebo Samuel is the 49ers alpha wide receiver, maintaining at least a 25% target rate in every game so far this season. For comparison, Cooper Kupp is the only other WR in the league to command a similar target share in every single game. The absence of tight end George Kittle will only further increase Samuel’s already high target share.

Samuel sports a 33% seasonal target rate, putting him among the likes of Davante Adams and Cooper Kupp in terms of passing volume. Sports bettors can take advantage of this by betting on Deebo Samuel to go OVER his receiving yard prop of 61.5 yards. Samuel has eclipsed 61.5 yards in 60% of his games this season.

Indianapolis Colts Struggles Vs. Alpha Receivers

The Indianapolis Colts are 31st in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing WR1s, giving up an average of 21.6 points per game. Opposing WR1s are averaging 93.5 yards per game against the Colts and have racked up a total of six touchdown receptions.

Of the 15 of the 16 touchdown passes allowed by the Indianapolis Colts, they have all come via the pass this season. To label the Colts as a pass funnel defense would be an understatement. DFS players can take advantage of this by making Deebo Samuel their MVP slot for the FanDuel Sunday Night Football Showdown.

The game begins at 8:20 p.m. EST Sunday on NBC.
