Monday Night Football features a marquee matchup to wrap up the Week 12 NFL schedule as the Los Angeles Rams host the Baltimore Ravens. Both teams are loaded with stars, which makes for a deep NFL DFS player pool on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. Jared Goff, Cooper Kupp and Todd Gurley form a dynamic trio for the Rams, and Los Angeles is also expecting to get wide receiver Brandin Cooks back from a concussion in Week 12. Meanwhile, Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews have all been big-time playmakers for the Ravens. Those studs are sure to be popular NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football, but which NFL DFS stacks can you count on? And which role players will surprise? Be sure to see the optimal Monday Night Football DFS strategy and advice from SportsLine's Mike McClure before locking in any Rams vs. Ravens DFS picks. He's won almost $2 million in his daily Fantasy sports career.
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. Anybody who has been following him has seen huge returns.
We can tell you one of McClure's top Ravens vs. Rams DFS picks is Jackson. After giving Baltimore's offense a jolt primarily as a runner in the final seven weeks as a starter in 2018, Jackson has made enormous strides as a passer in 2019.
Jackson is completing 66.3 percent of his passes and has thrown for 2,258 yards and 19 touchdowns with five interceptions. And he's still a dynamic threat with the ball in his hands, rushing for 781 yards and six touchdowns, leading the entire NFL with 6.7 yards per carry. For NFL DFS purposes, he's like having a high-end running back who also puts up top-15 quarterback numbers on a weekly basis, making him a must-start on Monday Night Football.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy for Monday Night Football includes rostering Ingram, who has 10 total touchdowns this season. Ingram has proven to be a quality free-agent addition for Baltimore, with 667 yards and eight rushing touchdowns, while adding 17 catches for 162 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Ingram's 10 goal-line carries are the most in the NFL this season.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday Night Football because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
