Super Bowl Single-Game DFS Breakdown: Rams vs Bengals

The pricing for this year's Super Bowl showdown slate is a lot more strict than in years past, and it opens up the door to have a greater chance at uniqueness. Last year's Super Bowl showdown contest had a huge tie for first place on DraftKings cutting it down from a $1,000,000 prize to a massive tie for $2,000. This year the Bengals defense is $4,800 at the multiplier position, and the tight ends are all in the $6,000 range. On FanDuel, we are looking at the same thing—they have priced every player that has done something to $7,000 and the only player I see being underpriced is Drew Sample if C.J. Uzomah is unable to go.

Zac Taylor has implemented a very similar offense in Cincinnati to what Sean McVay runs. McVay notably started running 11 personnel at an extremely high rate, and Taylor, with his trio of wide receivers, has the third-most passing yards out of this personnel. Against this personnel, these teams mirror each other on defense; both defenses have allowed 6.7 yards per attempt, with the Bengals giving up a slightly higher completion percentage and the Rams giving up one more yard a game. I will break down these teams to the route tree level, what coverages we will see, and the player pool I will be utilizing in my builds.
