Thursday Night DFS Single-Game Breakdown: Redskins at Vikings

The red-hot Minnesota Vikings get a bye this week as they host the struggling Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football. The Vikings will be without star WR Adam Thielen and it's a revenge game of sorts for Adrian Peterson, but it should still be a romp for the home team.

Let's break down the game and how we can find the edge that might get us at the top of the leaderboards.

Injuries

Thielen being out is obviously the big news here and it makes Stefon Diggs a near lock for massive volume. The important thing here is that it opens up potential volume roles for other less expensive players.

Evaluation of Vegas Spread and Total

Minnesota -16.5 Over/Under 42

This should be a snooze fest and I'm definitely in line with Vegas here. Here are the likely outcomes:

  • Close, low-scoring game (<40 points) - 0%
  • Close, average-scoring game (40-49 points) - 0%
  • Close, high-scoring game (50+ points) - 0%
  • Blowout for the home team, low-scoring game - 40%
  • Blowout for the home team, average-scoring game - 40%
  • Blowout for the home team, high-scoring game - 20%
  • Blowout for the away team, low-scoring game - 0%
  • Blowout for the away team, average-scoring game - 0%
  • Blowout for the away team, high-scoring game - 0%
