Monday Night Football is officially upon us. This week will feature a matchup between the defending AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Giants. Both teams are struggling this season and looking to turn their seasons around. Let’s jump right in take a look at the top DFS players in this matchup.
Byron Pringle (DK 3,300 | FD 7,000)
Pringle is slowly starting to work his way into more opportunities. Last week, he saw a season-high in snaps and turned that into the best game of his career. He was targeted six times and caught five of those for 73 yards. If he can continue to get the snaps, he will start to gain Mahomes trust in an offense that is lacking a second wide receiver. Pringle will save you plenty of money at the Captain spot and if he finds the end zone his value on this slate will be huge.
Patrick Mahomes (DK 12,000 | FD 17,000)
Mahomes is having the worst season of his young NFL career. The former MVP is even tied for the most interceptions in the league with nine. However, Mahomes has still put up good fantasy numbers. He has scored at least 20 fantasy points in every game this season other than last week. The Giant’s defense is not very good and this will be a great get-right opportunity for Mahomes and the offense. Look for him to be the top fantasy scorer in this game.
Evan Engram (DK 5,400 | FD 7,000)
Engram is a potential trade target for any tight end needy team. This will be a chance for the Giants to showcase his abilities and he gets a good matchup to do so. The Chiefs have allowed at least one receiving touchdown to tight ends in their last four games. The receivers for the Giants are still banged-up so Engram should get a good target share again this week.
Daniel Jones (DK 10,200 | FD 15,000)
Jones has been a solid fantasy quarterback this season. His rushing ability gives him some good upside. He also gets a great matchup this week against the Chief’s defense. They have struggled all year and have allowed 16 total touchdowns to quarterbacks on the season. Jones should be in for a good fantasy night and be one of the top scorers on the slate.
