Ahead of Sunday night's bout between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, here are three players at different salary ranges who should perform well in the DraftKings Showdown. 

CeeDee Lamb, Dallas Cowboys ($10,400)

Lamb has gained a minimum of 16 PPR points in each of his last five games.

  • Lamb lines up all over the field but has remained the Cowboys' primary slot receiver.
  • San Francisco has allowed the second-most receiving yards to wide receivers lined up in the slot this season.
  • The 49ers have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to wide receivers overall this season.
  • The Cowboys are underdogs for the first time since mid-October, which should force them to pass the ball more than usual.
  • Both teams are among the top three at preventing fantasy points to running backs, the top eight at preventing fantasy points to tight ends and the top 10 at preventing fantasy points to quarterbacks.
  • There are plenty of star fantasy players among both teams, but the wide receivers have much better matchups.
