Sunday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Browns at Giants

Congratulations to the Cleveland Browns for getting flexed to Sunday Night Football! Your success means the nation gets to watch your squad take on a New York Giants team that will be playing their backup quarterback and maybe without its best pass-catcher!

Thankfully, the Giants defense has been good enough to keep games close. James Bradberry is going to have fun with the Browns receiving corps. Oh yeah, he isn’t playing. COVID. Great.

It is vital to remember that single-game slates are not simply a “max salary, play as many big names as possible, and submit” format, especially in larger tournament fields. We need to identify players that can be pieces in their offense’s success, whether in the lead or trailing, as well as the players that could be focal points in a neutral game script. The ability to then take those players and identify which will succeed in the single game format will put us in a better position to succeed as daily fantasy players.

Remember that the captain spot is different on DraftKings than on FanDuel. The captain spot on DraftKings delivers fantasy points and prices multiplied by 1.5. The MVP spot on FanDuel will score at the same rate but without the increased pricing for the player slot. All flex positions score normally.

Vegas Total and Spread

The Browns are 6-point road favorites in a game with a 44-point total. Cleveland has a 25-point implied team total, while New York has an implied team total of 19 points.
