The Sunday Night Football episode of week 14 features one of the NFL’s main rivalries: Bears vs. Packers. Quarterback Justin Fields is expected to return below center after an absence of several weeks. While he was tempting to take advantage of his high DFS potential, we’ll be leaving him out of our DraftKings Showdown roster this week. Instead, we’re going to showcase his best offensive weapons and keep our fingers crossed that Fields doesn’t rush for more than 100 yards and a score (or two).
Before we get into our choices, here are the key rules for DraftKings Showdown: PPR full point, and there is Three-point bonus for 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards, and 100 receiving yards. Choosing the captain costs 1.5 times a player’s original price, but they also get their points total multiplied by 1.5.

DraftKings Showdown Pick: Bears vs Packers
Budget of $ 50,000, need at least one player from each team.
Captain (1.5x points, 1.5x salary) RB AJ Dillon, Packers ($ 6,600)
Dillon is expected to return to his full 1B-1A role from Aaron Jones in the Packers backfield, but that doesn’t mean he can’t or won’t make a dent as “Captain.” Packers coach Matt LaFleur has shown he is able and willing to provide both fullbacks with workloads that suit whimsy. We hope to find the right mix of high score potential and savings.
FLEX WR Davante Adams, packers ($ 11,600)
Adams’ 115 targets are a whopping 29.2 percent, and are 48 percent ahead of the next closest to the target department. on Sunday.

FLEX RB Aaron Jones, Packers ($ 11,600)
Jones returned from a one-game absence in week 12 and now has the added benefit of the week 13 exemption. Presumably closer to full health, Jones can be expected to resume. his role as the clear leader of the Packers backfield. Even if Jones cedes a little extra work to Dillon, he still has the option of posting a big number on Sunday night.
FLEX RB David Montgomery, Bear ($ 10,000)
Montgomery leads the Bears in touch (154) by a wide margin despite missing four games. He caught a season-high eight assists on nine targets in Week 13, further demonstrating the advantage he has, especially in DraftKings’ PPR score. Luge won’t necessarily be smooth against the Packers, but Montgomery has eclipsed more than 20 DraftKings points three times this season.
FLEX WR Darnell Mooney, Bear ($ 8,400)
Mooney claimed first place in the pecking order of passing catches – a trend that began even before Allen Robinson reached the plateau with a hamstring injury. Even with Robinson’s return, we love Mooney’s potential and versatility. He found the end zone on a wide designed receiver in Week 9.
FLEX WR Jakeem Grant, Bear ($ 2,800)
Grant offers intriguing potential for a player we treat as a “punt” in this lineup. His snaps have increased in recent weeks, peaking with a record 48 in week 13. He turned the extra opportunity into a 5-62-1 line and 17.2 DraftKings points. Often deployed as a gadget player, Grant will likely have opportunities on short passes, engineered runs, and special teams.
