MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: BEARS AT VIKINGS

Bears (20.5) AT Vikings (23.5)

QB

Justin Fields 11.2K travels to Minny to face the Vikings with one game under his belt since injury. Fields showed last week that he still has elite upside with his legs rushing for over 100 yards. He completed 69% of his passes totaling 169 yards #nice. This is a great spot to get overweight on Fields in the Captain spot in a dome versus a team that loves to blitz. If Fields can elude the blitz, he will be running free once again. Fields has a 52.5-yard rushing prop and is +150 to score a touchdown.

Josh Dobbs is priced at 10K flat and has been quite mobile himself with a rushing TD in his last 5 games. Dobbs is a favorite to rush for 40+ yards once again this game. I will be looking to get overweight on Dobbs in the Captain spot as well with the upside he presents. Dobbs has a rush/pass prop of 277.5 yards and is +190 to score a touchdown.

RB

Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson head the Bears rushing attack. Herbert played on 32 of 75 snaps last week in his return and Johnson played on 25 of 75 snaps. I look for Herbert to see an increase in snaps this week and Johnson to stay around 20 snaps here. Both RBs are priced fairly at 6.8K and 3K. I will see how often the sims have them hitting for me but want to only have them in the Flex position. Rush yard props are Herbert 53.5 and Johnson 22.5 yards. Herbert is +155 to score and Johnson is +230.

Mattison and Chandler split the Vikings workload. Mattison is priced at 7.4K and has not shown the upside many were looking for from him this year with only 2 games of 17+ DK points and 4 of his last 6 games under 10 points. I will be underweight on Mattison but do want to target Chandler at 5.8K. Chandler showed a much bigger upside in limited work last week rushing for 73 yards on just 10 carries and catching all 4 targets for 37 yards. Mattison has a rush prop of 45.5 yards and Chandler has a 32.5-yard prop.

WR

DJ Moore was glad to have Field back last week as they hooked up 7 times for 96 yards and one touchdown. Moore has flashed some big upside this year and Fields seems to just lock in on him very often. Moore makes for a great Captain option and I will be overweight on him in the Flex as well.  Mooney 4.8K is fine for the Flex but I will most likely under-project him and just see where he lands. St. Brown and Tyler Scott are fine GPP dart throws under 2K for the Flex as well. Receiving props are Moore 61.5, Mooney 26.5, St. Brown 7.5, and Scott 7.5 yards. Moore is +165 to score a touchdown.

Jordan Addison will continue to lead the wideouts as Justin Jefferson is not expected to play tonight. Addison should once again see around 7-9 targets in this game and has a solid price tag for his upside at 8.2K. KJ Osborne 5.6K played 71 of 74 snaps last week but only caught 1 of 2 targets for 7 yards and remains a Flex-only GPP option. Brandon Powell is my preferred pass catcher here at only 2K flat and has scored 6+ DK points in the last 3 games. I will be well overweight on Powell in the Flex position. Receiving props are Addison at 49.5, Osborne at 30.5, and Powell at 23.5 yards.

TE

Cole Kmet 6.2K is a solid option with a good mid-range price tag. Kmet has shown upside at times this year and the Vikings have struggled against tight ends at times this year. I’m not sure if he will crack my Captain pool but will for sure have him in the Flex position. Kmet has a prop of 36.5 yards.

Hockenson is priced at 9K is has been the first look for Dobbs often. Hock put up 33 DK points 2 weeks ago and gets a solid matchup. TJ will be a guy I want in my Captain pool and to be overweight on in the Flex as well. Josh Oliver caught 4 passes last week for 47 yards and a touchdown and will be a guy I have in the Flex pool. Hockenson has a prop of 62.5 yards and Oliver has a 9.5-yard prop.

DEF/K

The defenses are both priced fair here and defenses have been finding their way onto a lot of optimals on these island games. Both of these QBs play fast and are liable to turn it over. I will put in a fair projection and see where the Sims have these defenses landing. The kickers are both firmly in play here in the Flex for me at 4.6K and 5K flat. Both have games of 10+ recently and I will look to get around 20% of both.

SNYDER MAIN CORE

Justin Fields (CAPT) + Brandon Powell + DJ Moore 6.9K left per position
