Some of the most exciting young players in the league will be on display when Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb and the Cleveland Browns take on Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle and the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. It’s an 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff from Levi’s Stadium. Those players will all be popular NFL DFS picks on Monday, but with other players such as Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr., Matt Breida and Deebo Samuel also in the NFL DFS player pool, there are plenty of ways to build NFL DFS lineups in this matchup of the 2-2 Browns and 3-0 49ers, one of two unbeaten teams remaining in the NFL. Before finalizing your Monday Night Football NFL DFS lineups on sites such as FanDuel or DraftKings, be sure to see the advice from Mike McClure. He’s a professional daily Fantasy player who has won almost $2 million in his career, and his NFL DFS strategy can help you make all the right calls on Monday.
McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best NFL DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NFL DFS player.
McClure rolled through the 2018 NFL season, cashing in the top 5 percent of tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings multiple times. His optimal lineups cashed as high as the top 0.1 percent on FanDuel and as high as the top 1 percent on DraftKings.
He’s off to a red-hot start in 2019 as well, already, including a strong 3x return on DraftKings in Week 3 and a 2x return on Monday Night Football in Week 4. On Sunday, his optimal lineup finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings, with his four core players — Deshaun Watson, Michael Thomas, Christian McCaffrey and Will Fuller — combining for a whopping 196.34 points, enough to cash in tournaments by themselves. Anyone who has been following him has seen huge returns. Now, he has turned his attention to Browns vs. 49ers on Monday Night Football and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks over at SportsLine.
For Browns vs. 49ers, we can tell you McClure is banking on Mayfield. It hasn’t been quite the start to the season many were hoping for from the second-year player out of Oklahoma, but if last week is a good indication, he’s finding his stride and ready to produce big numbers.
He completed 66.7 percent of his passes last week against the Ravens, piling up 342 yards and a touchdown in that matchup. He only threw one interception, which was also an encouraging sign after he was picked five times in the first three weeks of the season. The Niners gave up 311 yards and two touchdowns to Andy Dalton in Week 2, so look for a confident Mayfield to return huge value in this primetime spot, and lock him in as one of your top MNF DFS picks.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy for Monday Night Football also includes rostering Chubb. With Kareem Hunt (suspension) still sidelined, Chubb is seeing a vast majority of the carries in this high-powered offense, and it’s led to slate-breaking returns. Chubb went off for 165 yards and three touchdowns against the Ravens last week, returning almost 40 points and 5x value on FanDuel. The Niners gave up 75 rushing yards on just 13 carries to Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones earlier this season, so don’t hesitate to put Chubb in your Monday Night Football DFS lineups.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday because of a dream matchup. The stars are aligning for him to go off for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings, and he comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
