Although the Minnesota Vikings have favored ball-control offense this season, the play of rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson has been a highlight. The rookie from LSU, who was taken with the 22nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, is 15th in the league with 627 receiving yards on 34 receptions and has quickly become one of the most popular NFL DFS picks each week. At 6-foot-1, 202 pounds, the Vikings see Jefferson as the replacement for Stefon Diggs, but can you trust him as part of your NFL DFS strategy for Monday Night Football when the Vikings face the Bears?
Which Bears vs. Vikings DFS picks should you make? And which stars from the NFL DFS player pool on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel should you target? Before finalizing any daily Fantasy football picks for Monday Night Football, be sure to see the latest NFL DFS advice, core lineup picks and player rankings from SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.
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.
In Week 9, McClure had Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his player pool for both FanDuel and DraftKings: The result: Rodgers threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns, returning almost 30 points on both sites. Anybody who had him in their daily Fantasy football lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to Monday Night Football and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Vikings vs. Bears
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Vikings running back Dalvin Cook. The four-year veteran is trending toward his second straight 1,100-yard season, going for 858 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 144 carries so far in 2020. Although Cook isn't heavily relied on to make catches out of the backfield, he also has contributed 16 receptions for 173 yards and another TD.
Cook is averaging a stellar 6.0 yards per carry this season, which is 1.1 over his career average, while his 12 rushing scores are the best in the NFL. Lock him into your NFL DFS lineups for Monday Night Football.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson. The Bears are hopeful that Robinson (knee) can go, as he practiced in a limited fashion on Saturday for the third straight day. Robinson has 57 receptions for 712 yards and three touchdowns so far in 2020.
The second-round draft pick from Penn State in 2014, Robinson has established himself as one of the NFL's elite receivers after missing the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL.
Robinson ranks sixth this season in receiving yardage and eighth in receptions despite the uneven quarterback play of Trubisky and Foles. Lock him into your NFL DFS lineups on Monday Night Football.
