Playing for an offense that ranks 31st in points and 32nd in yards, Allen Robinson has been a missing star in the Bears' offense. The former Pro Bowl receiver, who has three 1,000-yard seasons, has just 271 yards and one touchdown this year. Can Robinson finally have a breakout game for the Bears and NFL DFS lineups on Monday Night Football? Robinson and the Bears visit the Steelers, whose tandem of Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool have risen to the top of Pittsburgh's NFL DFS player pool.

Top NFL DFS picks for Steelers vs. Bears
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth. A second-round rookie out of Penn State, Freiermuth has become a bigger part of the offense as the season has progressed. After playing 50 percent of snaps through the first five games, he's played nearly 70 over the last two weeks.
This increase in playing time has led to an increase in production, as Freiermuth's two highest receiving yardages have been in his last two games. He posted a 4-44-1 stat line last week, which came after career-highs of seven receptions and 58 receiving yards the game before. Freiermuth has been targeted three times inside the 10-yard-line this season, which is tied for the most among Pittsburgh's pass-catchers.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Bears quarterback Justin Fields, who showed off his arm and legs last week with 175 yards and a touchdown through the air as well as 103 yards and a score on the ground. He became just the third quarterback in NFL history to rush for 100 yards, run for a TD and throw a TD pass in the same game.
Utilizing Fields' legs allowed Chicago to score 22 points last week, which is its second-most this season. Look for the Bears to continue to call scripted rushing plays for Fields, which is where much of his NFL DFS value comes from. As for his arm, the Steelers have allowed multiple TD passes in four of their last six games, so Fields should also have opportunities to find the end zone through the air as well.
