Daily Fantasy football players get a final chance to set NFL DFS lineups for Monday Night Football when the Green Bay Packers visit the Minnesota Vikings at 8:15 p.m. ET. It's the final weekday game on the 2019-20 NFL schedule, providing plenty of challenges for Monday Night Football DFS lineups. Both NFC North squads have clinched a spot in the NFC playoff bracket, but they can still improve their seeding. That means stars like Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins, Stefon Diggs, Davante Adams and Aaron Jones are possible top NFL DFS picks. But, finding overlooked daily Fantasy football picks in Monday's NFL DFS player pool could be the key to cashing big.
Before looking for those hidden gems and setting your NFL DFS strategy for this primetime matchup, be sure to see Mike McClure's optimal NFL DFS lineups for Packers vs. Vikings. He's won almost $2 million as a DFS pro, and his NFL DFS advice can help you separate from the pack in tournaments such as the $650K NFL Monday Night Special on FanDuel or the $1.11M Monday Night Showdown on DraftKings.
McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who 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 had eye-popping results during 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.
He's rolling through 2019 as well, including a strong 3x return on DraftKings in the Week 3 main slate. On Sunday of Week 5, his optimal lineup finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings, with his four core players -- Deshaun Watson, Michael Thomas, Christian McCaffrey and Will Fuller -- combining for a whopping 196.34 points, enough to cash in tournaments by themselves. He followed that up by cashing his FanDuel and DraftKings lineups on Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football in Week 6 and then cashed everywhere on his SNF lineups yet again in Week 7.
He continued his roll with wins on both sites on the main slate, SNF and MNF in Week 8. He added 5x returns on his optimal lineups on both sites in Week 9 and cashed in main slate tournaments on both sites in Week 11. His Week 13 main slate lineups returned at least 10x on DraftKings and produced returns as high as 40x in higher-stakes tournaments. And in Week 15, all of his lineups cashed handily. Anybody who has been following him has seen huge returns.
Now, he has turned his attention to the Monday Night Football NFL DFS player pool and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Packers vs. Vikings
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Packers vs. Vikings is Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. No quarterback has taken care of the ball as well as Rodgers this season, as he entered Week 16 with just two interceptions on 474 passing attempts. And Rodgers has put up eye-popping numbers against Minnesota historically, completing 67.9 percent of his passes for over 5,000 yards, 43 touchdowns and six interceptions in 22 games against his NFC North rival.
With the Vikings ranked in the middle of the league (13th) in pass defense and having given up slate-breaking days to players like Dak Prescott (397 yards, 3 TDs) and Matthew Stafford (367, 4) already this year, Rodgers should be able to replicate his strong numbers in Packers vs. Vikings DFS tournaments.
Part of his optimal Vikings vs. Packers DFS strategy also includes rostering Minnesota running back Mike Boone. The second-year back out of Cincinnati surged on to the NFL DFS radar last week with a 13-56-2 rushing line for a depleted Minnesota backfield. With Dalvin Cook (chest) ruled out and Alexander Mattison (shoulder) officially listed as questionable and reportedly unlikely to play, Boone is again in line to see plenty of work against a porous Green Bay run defense that gives up 120.9 yards per game on the ground.
How to set your Monday Night Football NFL DFS lineups
