The Green Bay Packers will visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football to conclude Week 5 and there will be big money on the line in NFL DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses to division-rivals in Week 4 and rank in the bottom half of the NFL in total offense and total defense. However, this is a softer portion of the schedule for both franchises and a win could catapult them back into the NFL playoff picture. Packers running back Aaron Jones will reportedly sit with a hamstring injury and, if he's inactive, he should be nowhere near your NFL DFS lineups.
How much exposure should you have to backup AJ Dillon in your NFL DFS stacks and who else in the NFL DFS player pool should you target?

Top NFL DFS picks for Raiders vs. Packers
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Raiders receiver Davante Adams. Assuming he's active with a shoulder injury, the revenge narrative will be fully in play for the former Packers receiver. Adams has three touchdowns already this season and topped 66 yards in every game. He has 21 receptions the last two weeks combined even though Jimmy Garoppolo was out with a concussion last week.
The Packers have already given up banner receiving days to Amon-Ra St. Brown (5-56-1), Darnell Mooney (4-53-1), Drake London (6-67-1), and Chris Olave (8-104). Pencil Adams in as one of the highest-ceiling options in the MNF DFS player pool.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Packers quarterback Jordan Love. The 24-year-old is in his first season as an NFL starter, but he has already thrown for at least 245 yards in three of his first four games this year. Love opened the campaign with back-to-back three-touchdown performances against the Bears and Falcons, which both came on the road.
He is facing a Las Vegas defense that has lost three straight games, getting outscored 61-9 in the second and third quarters of their games this season. The Raiders and Packers have both struggled to run the ball, which creates more passing opportunities and less running clock. Love, who has recorded a rushing touchdown in each of his last two games, has been a valuable addition to NFL DFS lineups multiple times already this season, and McClure expects that trend to continue on Monday Night Football.
