The UFL presents a playoff matchup between the Birmingham Stallions and the San Antonio Brahmas. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Birmingham Stallions vs. San Antonio Brahmas game let’s review the rules for the Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate.

Here are my Draftkings picks for tomorrow’s Birmingham Stallions vs San Antonio Brahmas matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Jontre Kirkland, WR, San Antonio Brahmas $10,000

Talented San Antonio wide receiver Jontre Kirkland has certainly been the spark that this San Antonio Brahmas offense has needed to be successful this season. Having stated that, how has Kirkland been playing from a statistical perspective? Let’s review the relevant game data from Jontre Kirkland’s recent play on the football field to answer that question.

In 11 games played for the San Antonio Brahmas in the 2024 UFL season (including playoffs), Brahmas wide receiver Jontre Kirkland has been targeted quite often by San Antonio quarterbacks Chase Garber and Quinten Dormady. Let me be more specific. Through 11 games played this season, San Antonio Brahmas starting quarterbacks have combined to target Jontre Kirkland a whopping 92 times.

Of those 92 targets just mentioned, San Antonio Brahmas wide receiver Jontre Kirkland accumulated 61 receptions, 676 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns. It has to be said, that is the type of production I need from a player I select for my captain position.

Considering the elevated importance of tomorrow’s 2024 UFL Championship game, I have no doubt in my mind that San Antonio Brahmas wide receiver Jontre Kirkland will play one of his best games of the 2024 UFL season.

For the reasons just noted, I am backing San Antonio Brahmas wide receiver Jontre Kirkland as my captain for this one game UFL DFS slate.

Flex Plays

Jace Sternberger, TE, Birmingham Stallions $6,800

I think it’s fair to say that Birmingham Stallions quarterbacks have enjoyed throwing the football to Jace Sternberger this season. Why do I say that? In the 11 games that Jace Sternberger has played for the Birmingham Stallions this season (including playoff games), Birmingham Stallions starting quarterbacks have combined to target Stallions tight end Jace Sternberger a total of 44 times.

Of those 44 targets just noted, talented Stallions tight end Jace Sternberger accumulated 27 receptions, 502 receiving yards, and 4 touchdowns.

I like Jace Sternberger’s low Draftkings price of only $6,800. In my opinion, Jace Sternberger presents the best fantasy value of any player on this one game UFL slate.

Additional flex plays I like: Adrian Martinez, QB (Stallions) $11,000: Chase Garbers, QB (Brahmas) $10,200: Ricky Person Jr. RB (Stallions) $7,400: Anthony McFarland, RB (Brahmas) $9,000: Amari Rodgers, WR (Stallions) $5,000.
