Super Bowl LVIII, the final game of the 2023 NFL season is here and it features a rematch from Super Bowl LIV, game won by the Kansas City Chiefs.
After Sunday, we will have to wait several months to be able to enjoy NFL football again, giving us an offseason to follow the news and tinker with our dynasty league rosters. But with this game, we have one more chance to set a DFS lineup and try to win some cash before the season officially concludes.
We've already given you some ideas to help set an optimal lineup for the big game and now, it's time to discuss some contrarian options. With only one game on the slate, particularly one that will see millions of other players enter, you are absolutely going to have to hit on at least one contrarian player to have a chance to get into the big money.
With that in mind, here are some choices.
Salaries are based on DraftKings Showdown Captain Mode.
Kyle Juszczyk, FB, San Francisco 49ers- $800
Most teams around the league don't even use a fullback, so the 49ers' Kyle Juszczyk is a player who many will gloss right over when setting their lineups for that fact alone.
Juszczyk is not a player that is very involved in the 49ers' offensive game plan in terms of having the ball in his hands (he had only 19 total touches during the regular season) but he is a player that has a lot of experience making the most of the opportunities that he gets.
Christian McCaffrey has scored 25 total touchdowns this season (including the postseason) so there isn't much reason to take the ball out of his hands, even down around the goal line. But Juszczyk could be a weapon inside the 5-yard line but where he could come up with a big play or two in this game is in the passing game.
Juszczyk is a good receiver who can be just like a tight end down the field. The 49ers are going to have to come up with some plays we aren't used to seeing if they are going to get past the terrific defensive scheme set up by Steve Spagnuolo. Juszczyk is a guy they could use to sneak past this defense.
