There’s also plenty at stake for NFL DFS players, with DraftKings hosting a $1M Monday Night Showdown and FanDuel running a $600K Monday Night Special. There are several injuries to take into consideration, with Josh Adams (hip), Adrian Peterson (shoulder) and Jordan Reed (back) all questionable. Figuring out who you can rely on and finding the top NFL DFS value picks will be key to cashing in tournaments and cash games. So, before you finalize any rosters, check out the top Monday Night Football NFL DFS picks, optimal lineups and advice from SportsLine’s Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2M in career winnings.
McClure uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best NFL DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NFL DFS player.
McClure is rolling through the 2018 season thanks to some spot-on picks. In Week 1, his optimal NFL DFS lineups finished in the top 3 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and the top 1 percent of tournaments on FanDuel. In Week 4, he finished in the top 2 percent on DraftKings and top 6 percent on FanDuel. In Week 5, his lineups cashed with ease on both sites. In Week 8, his followers saw massive returns, with his DraftKings lineup finishing in the top 1 percent of all tournaments, while his Week 9 lineup cashed with ease on FanDuel. He cashed yet again on both sites in Week 10, and then his optimal lineup on FanDuel returned almost 3x the last three weeks. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Monday Night Football, we can tell you McClure is banking on Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.
Wentz is completing just under 70 percent of his passes, piling up over 2,500 yards and 16 touchdowns against just six interceptions. He had a six-game multi-touchdown streak that ended in Week 11, but he has a strong chance to return to those types of numbers on Monday Night Football.
That’s because the Redskins have struggled mightily on defense recently. They were one of the top units in the NFL earlier in the season, but have now fallen to 17th in total defense (361.2 ypg) and 24th against the pass (260.9 ypg). They’ve lost three of four overall and have given up 30 points in two of those defeats during that span. McClure’s optimal NFL DFS advice also includes stacking Wentz with tight end Zach Ertz.
The second-most targeted tight end in the league, Ertz has put together another impressive stat line this season (84-895-6) and easily shook off a tough Week 11 by going for 7-91-1 against the Giants in Week 12. The Redskins are banged up on defense, with linebacker Zach Brown (knee) among the question marks. Expect Ertz to have plenty of room to operate in the middle of the field. He’s part of a top NFL DFS stack that could pay off big on Monday.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday Night Football because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your NFL DFS tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
