The last time Tom Brady and the Buccaneers lost back-to-back games, they proceeded to run the table en route to winning Super Bowl LV. If Tampa wants the same result, it will start with a victory on Monday Night Football versus the Giants. Brady has been a major reason for the team's recent struggles, as he has five turnovers over the last two games. You also can't ignore his league-leading 27 passing TDs when filling out your NFL DFS lineups.
Mike Evans has been the biggest benefactor of Brady's arm, with a team-high of nine touchdowns, while Chris Godwin has five scores. With Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski both recently missing games, which Bucs receivers are worthy of your NFL DFS picks? Speaking of injury-ravaged receiving cores, which New York wideouts should you consider for Giants vs. Buccaneers NFL DFS stacks? Before locking in your NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.
McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings.

Top NFL DFS picks for Buccaneers vs. Giants
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. Every Giants skill position player has missed time this year, but Jones has held his own thanks to his dual-threat abilities. He's one of four players in the NFL with at least 2,000 passing yards and 250 rushing yards, joining Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts.
New York is getting healthier with Kenny Golladay returning last game and Saquon Barkley on track to play on Monday Night Football. They will only help Jones, but it doesn't appear the third-year QB needs much help based on recent performances against the Buccaneers. Jones has faced off against Tampa the last two seasons and produced four passing TDs, two rushing TDs and averaged 296 passing yards. He should take advantage of a Bucs defense that has been picked apart by the likes of Taylor Heinicke and Trevor Siemian over the last two games.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Buccaneers receiver Chris Godwin, who has scored two TDs and averaged over 100 receiving yards over his last three games. Godwin has emerged as Brady's most trusted receiver, as he tops Mike Evans both in receptions and in receiving yards.
Godwin's 57 grabs rank seventh in the NFL and he almost never has a bad game. He has three times as many games with over 100 yards (three) as he has games with under 50 yards (one). The Giants have been dominated by opposing receivers all year long and allowed seven TDs over their last five games to wideouts alone. Godwin has scored touchdowns in his last two Monday Night Football games and has a strong chance at hitting pay-dirt against New York.
