A potential AFC Championship Game preview is on tap for Monday Night Football when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Baltimore Ravens. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET from Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. There are a potpourri of options for your NFL DFS picks, as Patrick Mahomes vs. Lamar Jackson headlines a glittering NFL DFS player pool that also includes Travis Kelce, Mark Ingram, Tyreek Hill and Marquise Brown.
With plenty of intriguing NFL DFS stacks to choose from on DraftKings and FanDuel, finalizing your NFL DFS picks will require plenty of outside help. The quarterback decision alone between Mahomes and Jackson will be the talk of Monday's pregame shows. Before you make your Monday Night Football DFS picks, be sure to see the NFL DFS advice, player rankings and top daily fantasy football picks from SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.
McClure crushed his NFL DFS picks in 2019, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments. He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who followed him saw some huge returns.
In his Week 2 NFL DFS player pool, he was all over Titans tight end Jonnu Smith as one of his top picks. The result: Smith, who was well under $6,000 on both FanDuel and DraftKings, erupted for a 4-84-2 receiving line that returned huge value on both sites. Anybody who put him in their NFL DFS lineups was well on their way to a profitable day.
Top Chiefs vs. Ravens NFL DFS picks
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. The former Heisman Trophy winner turned the NFL upside down in his first full year under center in Baltimore in 2019. Jackson passed for 3,127 yards and 36 touchdowns, and also rushed for a team-high 1,206 yards and seven more TDs, winning the NFL MVP award.
Jackson's 2020 has been steady through two weeks, as he has completed 77.6 percent of his passes (up from 66.1 percent in 2019) for 479 yards and four touchdowns.
Notably, he has 23 carries for 99 yards, but has yet to find the end zone on the ground. McClure sees Jackson posting a monster night against a Chiefs pass defense that is ranked No. 26 in the NFL, and urges you to build around him in your Ravens vs. Chiefs DFS picks.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. The rookie electrified the NFL in Week 1 with 25 carries for 138 yards and at touchdown against the Texans. Selected with the 32nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, Edwards-Helaire now has 208 yards from scrimmage in two weeks.
Edwards-Helaire displayed his versatility last week against the Chargers, carrying it 10 times for 38 yards and catching six of eight targets for an additional 32 yards as the Chiefs improved to 2-0. In such a target-rich offense, Edwards-Helaire can easily be overlooked by an opposing defense.
