With Steelers vs. Giants and Titans vs. Broncos highlighting the Monday Night Football DFS slate, finding value in a deep NFL DFS player pool is key. In order to separate yourself from the pack, you'll need to identify the NFL DFS picks that present the best value relative to their cost. Should you go with a proven option like Giants running back Saquon Barkley, or roll the dice on a cheaper, high-upside option like Broncos tight end Noah Fant?
With FanDuel hosting a $1M NFL Monday Million and DraftKings running a $1.5M Monday Night Special, there are plenty of difficult decisions for NFL DFS players to make. Be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, optimal player pool, picks, and top stacks from SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million, before you make your Monday Night Football DFS picks for Giants vs. Steelers and Broncos vs. Titans.
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.
Top Monday Night Football DFS picks
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill. What a difference a year makes. When the 2019 season started, Tannehill was an NFL afterthought and sitting on the Titans' bench behind starter Marcus Mariota. But once Tannehill replaced Mariota, he thrived for both Tennessee and NFL DFS owners who backed him.
Tannehill's 2019 saw him complete 70 percent of his passes for a 9.6 YPA, and the Titans scored three-plus TDs in 12 of his 13 starts. His potential is sky-high against a Denver defense that will be without linebacker Von Miller (ankle) and could feature a limited Bradley Chubb (knee).
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Steelers running back James Conner. Pittsburgh's running back is expected to be one of the main beneficiaries of having quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back in the lineup. With Roethlisberger healthy in 2018, Conner finished the season with 973 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. And even though Conner missed six games in 2019 due to injuries, he still found the end zone seven times.
Now, Conner will get an advantageous matchup against the Giants' rush defense, which gave up 113.3 yards per game on the ground last season. Lock Conner in as one of the top NFL DFS picks for Monday night and look for a big return against New York.
