The Week 13 NFL schedule concludes with a Monday Night Football matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings at 8:15 p.m. ET from CenturyLink Field. There are plenty of potential NFL DFS picks and stacks available in this game, which has an over-under of 50 points. Both offenses rank in the top seven in total yardage and scoring, so the optimal NFL DFS strategy on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings means finding the best values among stars like Russell Wilson, Dalvin Cook, Kirk Cousins, Stefon Diggs and Tyler Lockett as well as other overlooked players. Before searching through the NFL DFS player pool and locking in any lineups, see what SportsLine's Mike McClure has to say.

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. Anybody who has been following him has seen huge returns.
We can tell you one of McClure's top Seahawks vs. Vikings DFS picks is Cook. He is fourth in the NFL in rushing yards per game (92.5) and tied for second in the league in rushing touchdowns (11). He needs just one to tie McCaffrey for the lead in that category. He has a strong chance to find the end zone against a Seattle team that ranks just 21st in the league in scoring defense (23.9 points per game) and total defense (370.3 yards per game).
Only six other teams have given up more touchdowns to opposing running backs (nine) than Seattle, so confidently lock in Cook, who has gone off for at least 3x value on DraftKings seven times this season, as part of your Vikings vs. Seahawks DFS lineups.
Part of McClure's NFL DFS strategy for Monday Night Football also includes rostering Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny. Chris Carson is officially the starter for Seattle, but Penny was the go-to back last week, taking 14 carries for 129 yards and a score, while Carson only had eight carries for 26 yards. Carson has also fumbled four times over his past three games, while Penny has put the ball on the ground just once 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.
