The Pirates host the Saints while the two clubs renew their divisional rivalry. New Orleans has dominated the series recently, winning three of the past four showdowns. Unfortunately for the Who Dat nation, the Saints’ only loss of the four was the most significant – last season’s playoff between the teams. The intensity of this matching creates a lot of fun FanDuel Single-player DFS possibilities.
Here are the notable scoring settings for individual FanDuel game competitions: Total points for ‘MVP’ are multiplied by 1.5, but it doesn’t cost any extra money as ‘Captain’ in DraftKings Showdown competitions. FanDuel’s default scoring is Half Point PPR And Four-point TD pass, and there they are number 300 yards / 100 yards bonuses like DraftKings games.

FanDuel Single DFS Game Choices: Saints vs. Pirates
With a budget of $60,000, you need at least one player from each team
Player of the Year (1.5 points) QB Taysom Hill, Saints ($14,500)
Hill may not always be pretty when watching him perform in real life, but the fancy points sure stack up quickly. He’s scored 26.30 and 24.66 points from FanDuel in his starters this season, and has scored over 20 FD points twice in part-time work in 2020. She has a hand in most of what the Saints produce aggressively.
FLEX RB Alvin Kamara, Saints ($14,000)
Camara missed several matches with knee and ankle ailments, but with 31 touchdowns in Week 14, he showed us he’s healthy. Kamara’s 209 touches account for 33.9% of team size, and he will continue to serve as the centerpiece of the attack. Bucs are stutterers against running, so the Kamara may find it hard to hit the running lanes, but he’s perfectly capable of collecting fancy points in the air, even with a hill under center.

FLEX WR Chris Goodwin, Buccaneers ($12,500)
Goodwin has scored 32 goals in the past two weeks. He’s able to earn huge target stakes in his own right, but Antonio Brown’s absence definitely helped matters in this department. Godwin turned his massive workload into 38.2 FD points, and that’s without finding his paycheck. Goodwin had five points in the season, so he wasn’t immune to plane crashes. With the number of passes coming his way, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him find the finish zone Sunday night.
FLEX TE Rob Gronkowski, pirate ($11,000)
Gronkowski wasted no time getting back into the groove upon his return to the lineup. He’s seen 34 goals in the past four weeks and has found the end zone twice. The Saints have been stingy against opposition to tight ends, but Gronkowski is Tom Brady’s favorite, so we’re not too concerned about the lack of volume and high-quality opportunities.
FLEX TE Nick Vannett, Saints ($7,000)
There’s not much to like about the minor pieces in Saints’ passing with Hill at the helm, but Vannett has been getting more and more of his shots in recent weeks. The increased chance peaked at 12.2 FD points in the previous two games, but we’re drawn to the price and the increase in picks. We might need to ask the fairy gods to give him a landing, but that’s a risk we’re willing to take in this place.
