Monday Night Football will see a matchup between the undermanned New York Giants (2-5) and the underperforming Kansas City Chiefs (3-4). New York has been decimated by injuries to its best players, as running back Saquon Barkley hasn't played in weeks. Barkley is out for Chiefs vs. Giants, which gives opportunities for others to step into NFL DFS lineups. Players like Devontae Booker and Kadarius Toney have slid up the Giants' depth chart and will try to help New York upset the Chiefs. They could both anchor your NFL DFS stacks.
Booker has three TDs over his last three games, so he's rewarded those who have gambled on him as one of their NFL DFS picks. As a former member of the AFC West, he's 1-9 in his career versus the Chiefs and is looking for more success against them. Finding the end zone on Monday Night Football would help with that cause, while also helping daily Fantasy football owners who roster him.

Top NFL DFS picks for Chiefs vs. Giants
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Chiefs receiver Mecole Hardman. There's a clear pecking order among Chiefs pass-catchers, but Hardman has emerged as the team's No. 3 option behind Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. He ranks third on the team in receptions (30) and receiving yards (289) and is on pace for nearly 800 scrimmage yards, which would be a career-high.
Hardman has become even more of a factor over his last three games, as he's averaged 5.7 receptions for 55.3 receiving yards. That coincides with Kansas City adding Josh Gordon to the roster, so Hardman appears to be extra motivated to not lose any snaps. The Giants just placed defensive captain Jabrill Peppers on IR, so their defense is ripe for the picking.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, who ranks second in the league in receptions (52), fifth in receiving yards (641) and eighth in receiving touchdowns (eight). In Week 7, Hill became the fifth receiver in NFL history with at least 50 receptions, 500 yards and five TDs in each of his first six seasons.
That consistency is something Hill brings to the table in addition to his explosive ability on the field. Of the 10 highest receiving yardage games this season, Hill is the only player whose name appears twice on that list. The Giants have allowed three receiving TDs over the last three weeks to their opponent's No. 1 receiver, so Hill has a strong chance of finding the end zone on Monday Night Football.
