Sunday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Seahawks at Cardinals

Fear of missing out will rule lineup building in Sunday night's single-game contests. You're going to have to shun at least a couple of the game's most productive players in making the optimal lineup for this Cardinals-Seahawks matchup. The FOMO may eat you alive. Prepare yourself.

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 7 Sunday Night Football matchup. Constructing single-game lineups requires some imagination, especially for large-field tournament purposes.

We want to create a lineup that reflects a certain kind of game script, choosing players who would thrive—or at least have the chance to thrive—if their teams got out to a lead or were left chasing points in the second half. There’s also the neutral script that doesn't tend to inflate opportunity for any one player or team. Understanding the likelihood of each scenario and piecing together a roster that would score a bunch of points in such a scenario is key to success in these single-game contests.

Remember: For the captain spot on DraftKings, the price (and fantasy points awarded) are multiplied by 1.5. On FanDuel, the prices are the same throughout, but the MVP slot receives 1.5 times the fantasy point value of the other roster spots.

Vegas Spread And Total

At 56 points, this game has the week's second-highest over/under. The Seahawks are three-point favorites with an implied total of 29.75 points. The Cardinals' implied total is 26.75. With two high-octane offenses and one of the worst pass defenses in modern memory, betting the under here might make for a miserable, butt-clenching night of football watching. You've been warned.
