Showdown SZN. We are back baby!
The NFL season kicks off Thursday with a primetime matchup featuring the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out our in-depth Showdown Strategy Guide which breaks down critical components of winning roster construction and how to leverage our NFL Projections and Optimizer to build lineups for tournaments. Between the strategies and the projections, you should have the ability to think through your own unique constructions of groups and rules in a better way than we can lay them out for you.
Each week we’ll also add some commentary for the primetime Showdown games, of which we are blessed with four. As a general rule of thumb, we would create groups to play at most one kicker from each game as well as at most one defense from each game. Below we also break down some game-specific thoughts.
