The NFL Week 13 schedule comes to a close with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting Andy Dalton and the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football at Raymond James Stadium. After being listed as questionable all week, Tampa Bay running back Leonard Fournette (hip) is expected to play on Monday night. The latest Buccaneers vs. Saints odds imply that this MNF game will be a tight, low-scoring affair with an over/under of 40.5 points, making it imperative to hit on the right mix of players from the MNF NFL DFS player pool when building your MNF NFL DFS strategy. Should New Orleans all-purpose running back Alvin Kamara be considered a must-start player in your NFL DFS lineups and NFL DFS stacks? Or would building around Brady, Fournette, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rachaad White, Julio Jones, Alvin Kamara, Chris Olave, Jarvis Landry, or Taysom Hill, who all project to be impact classic and showdown NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football, be the better strategy?

Top NFL DFS picks for Saints vs. Buccaneers on MNF
One of Kaylor's favorite DFS picks for the Saints vs. Buccaneers MNF matchup is New Orleans wide receiver Chris Olave. The first round picks out of Ohio State has quickly emerged as a No. 1 wide receiver in his first professional season and has been targeting on 24% of New Orleans' pass attempts. With 56 receptions for 882 yards and three touchdowns, Olave is on track to have one of the most productive rookie seasons by a wide receiver in NFL history, and Kaylor is expecting the 22-year-old to be featured prominently in the Saints' passing attack on Monday Night Football.
"Chris Olave is quickly establishing himself as one of the most complete wide receivers in the NFL, and in my eyes, he's the type of WR who isn't dependent on his quarterback to produce at a high level. The former Ohio State standout has been targeted 92 times (12th most in the league) and is well on his way to eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark in his rookie season. In a matchup where New Orleans could be trailing early, I am projecting another double-digit target game for Olave on Monday night with seven receptions for close to 100 yards," Kaylor told SportsLine.
