NFL DFS for Monday Night Football, Week 3: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks, lineups, strategy
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice.
NFL DFS players have several challenging decisions as they set lineups for Monday Night Football when the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins meet at FedEx Field at 8:15 p.m. ET. Redskins quarterback Case Keenum has thrown for 601 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in 2019, while Bears signal caller Mitchell Trubisky has thrown for just 348 yards with no touchdowns and one pick. But with Trubisky facing a struggling Washington defense and Keenum set to take on an elite Chicago unit, which one is the better value? NFL DFS players will need to make those type of calls at every position for daily Fantasy football tournaments on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings on Monday. DFS pro Mike McClure, who has won almost $2 million in his career, can help. His optimal NFL DFS lineups, top picks and advice are available over at SportsLine to help you separate from the competition on Bears vs. Redskins DFS slates.
McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute 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 rolled through the 2018 NFL season, cashing in the top 5 percent of tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings multiple times. His optimal lineups cashed as high as the top 0.1 percent on FanDuel and as high as the top 1 percent on DraftKings. Then in Week 1 of the 2019 season, he was all over Seahawks running back Chris Carson as he returned almost 4x on DraftKings.
McClure cashed in on his FanDuel and DraftKings lineups in Week 2 thanks to standout performances from players like Tyler Boyd (10-122), Christian Kirk (6-114) and Patrick Mahomes (443-4). Anyone who has been following him has seen some huge returns. Now, McClure has turned his attention to Monday Night Football and locked in his top NFL DFS picks.
For Bears vs. Redskins DFS, we can tell you McClure is banking on Bears running back Tarik Cohen. Like much of Chicago's offense, Cohen is still looking for his breakthrough in 2019, but he brings plenty of value to Monday Night Football DFS lineups because he's a central part of the passing game. In fact, he's been targeted 15 times through two weeks, turning those into 10 receptions.
Washington's defense has been torched this season, giving up 31.5 points and 455 yards per game, both ranking near the bottom of the league. And just last week, the Eagles used Darren Sproles, a similar back to Cohen, as a major part of their gameplan against the Redskins, giving him 12 touches for 63 yards from scrimmage. Look for Cohen, who is priced well below other backs like David Montgomery, Chris Thompson and Adrian Peterson, to be used in a similar way and return plenty of value for NFL DFS players.
Part of his optimal NFL DFS strategy for Monday Night Football also includes rostering Redskins wide receiver Terry McLaurin. The rookie out of Ohio State has been one of the top young receivers in the league through two weeks. He's been targeted 16 times, leading to 10 catches for 187 yards and two touchdowns. His 18.7 yards-per-catch average makes him one of the top Monday Night Football DFS picks you should be all over.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
