Week 5 has been filled with a lot of great matchups across the NFL. Monday Night Football will be no different as the Indianapolis Colts will head into Baltimore to face the Ravens. The Colts are 1-3 and are in desperate need of a win while the Ravens are looking to stay on top of the AFC with their fourth straight win. Let’s jump right into the top DFS players for this matchup.
DraftKings Captain & FanDuel MVP
Jonathan Taylor (DK 14,700 | FD 13,000)
Taylor surpassed 100 rushing yards last week for the first time this season. The Ravens defense only allows an average of 70 rushing yards to running backs per game. Although they have given up five rushing touchdowns in four games. The bad news for Taylor’s fantasy outlook is he still is only seeing roughly 50 percent of the snaps in four games this season. However, as long as he gets 15-20 carries he will be looking at another big week. Look for him to continue his momentum from last week and be among the high scorers in this game.
Latavius Murray (DK 7,400 | FD 10,000)
Murray saw the bulk of the workload last week for the Ravens. The Ravens made Ty’son Williams inactive and Murray saw 62 percent of the snaps and 18 rushing attempts. Murray’s competition for snaps is only recently activated Le’Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman. The good news for Murray is Freeman and Bell had only had five rushing attempts combined. Murray is the guy in Baltimore and will put up a solid fantasy stat line in this game.
Sammy Watkins (DK 5,800 | FD 7,500)
Watkins has seen at least seven targets and has exactly four receptions in every game this season. He is one of the cheaper options among the wide receivers in this game. Watkins hasn’t been able to score a touchdown this year but he gets a good matchup against the Colts secondary. Their defense has allowed eight receiving touchdowns this season. If he’s able to find the end zone he will provide a lot of value in this slate.
Michael Pittman (DK 9,000 | FD 11,000)
Pittman has seen 36 targets through the first four games this season. He has brought in 23 of those for 279 yards. However, similar to Watkins he has been unable to find the end zone. That will change sooner rather than later. Look for Pittman to use his 6’4” frame and snag a touchdown in this game.
