Yahoo Daily Fantasy analyst Tank Williams offers his picks for single-game DFS contests as Green Bay hosts Minnesota
TANK WILLIAMS: Yes. Tank from State Farm, holla. It's time for our surprisingly great rates presented by State Farm. Now, my dear face value plays can fit any budget just like State Farm offers surprisingly great rates with coverage that meets your needs. Now let's dig into the Sunday Tonight match-up with the Vikings, beaming themselves in the Green Bay without Captain Kirk in their Sunday night match-up.
And honestly, like, the Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers earlier this season. So I'm expecting a bounce back like none other, which is why I'm going with the Green Bay defense for 12 bucks in this one. I mean, the weather is going to be cold. It's supposed to be like 8 degrees that kick off. The Vikings are going with a backup quarterback. Like, we have like one of our old coworkers who is like a die hard Viking fan.
And when he heard they were starting Sean Mannion, I knew I had to go ahead and play the Green Bay Packers defense. So everything is kind of forming up together. I feel like the Green Bay Packers defense is going to get themselves together. Bad weather, backup quarterback, this is a recipe for them to go off. On the flip side, I'm going with Dalvin Cook.
So even when the Green Bay Packers defense has a good outing against the Vikings, Dalvin Cook seems to always break a run every now and then. I feel like with that backup quarterback, they're going to lean heavily on the run game, bad weather. That's where you need to get your running back involved. I don't think he goes off. He may break a long run too. So-- but I think that Cook is a nice play off of how I feel like the Green Bay Packers are going to attack that Minnesota Vikings offense.
And so for my superstar today, I'm going with Aaron Jones. Like, if you look at the first match up, I think my man, Aaron Rodgers, had 4 touchdowns that he threw. Davante Adams had like 115 yards, 2 tubs. I feel like this would be a Aaron Jones / AJ Dillon game with a little bit more going with Aaron Jones in the run and pass game. And so I feel like Aaron Jones would be a nice pivot play with a lot of people looking at that Vikings pass defense and expecting Aaron Rodgers and Davante to go off, which they could. But with this bad weather, cold weather, I feel like it'll be a game where you can lean on the run.
