Monday Night Football DFS: Week 17by Brandon Braasch January 3, 2022 0 comments
The final regular-season Monday Night Football game of the season is here. To cap off the Monday Night schedule is a battle out of the AFC North. The Cleveland Browns will head into Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. The Steelers will look to bring home a win for Ben Roethlisberger’s final game at Heinz Field. The Browns will look to play spoiler. Let’s take a look at the top players in this game.
DraftKings Captain & FanDuel MVP
Nick Chubb (DK Captain 17,400 | FD 16,000)
Chubb had an excellent game last week on Christmas Day. He went for 184 total yards and added a touchdown in that game. This week he gets a matchup against the Steelers who have allowed 120 rushing yards per game and 12 touchdowns on the season to running backs. Furthermore, the Steelers have been gashed on the ground the last three weeks allowing a total of 593 rushing yards. Pay up for Chubb on this slate.
Pat Freiermuth (DK 6,600 | FD 9,500)
The last time Freiermuth faced the Browns, he went for 44 receiving yards and a touchdown. After that game, he went on to score five touchdowns through his next seven games. The rookie out of Penn State is having himself a solid season and will look to finish the year on a high note. Look for Muth to find the end zone in this game.
Diontae Johnson (DK 10,400 | FD 13,000)
Big Ben’s arm has really limited the Steelers receivers on the season but Johnson has still put up numbers. Johnson has been Big Ben’s favorite target all season. He has 92 receptions on the season and continues to get peppered with targets. The targets will continue to go his way and Johnson will continue to put together good games. Look for Johnson to have another solid game tonight.
Rashard Higgins (DK 5,600 | FD 6,500)
Higgins had a very solid season last year going for 599 yards and four touchdowns. This year has been a huge disappointment for Higgins. He only has 267 yards and one touchdown on the season. However, he has been getting more involved the last couple of weeks. He’s played 79 percent and 65 percent of snaps the last two games. In those two games, he’s had eight receptions for 82 receiving yards. He’s a great value play in this game.
