MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: CHARGERS AT JETS

Chargers (21.5) AT Jets (18.5)

QB

Justin Herbert and the 3-4 Chargers head to New York in dire need of a win. Herbert will face one of the better defenses in the league with a couple of stud corners. Herbert is priced at 11.8K and will be a Flex-only option for me tonight in this tougher matchup and hasn’t shown a big upside this season. I also like the under on his passing prop tonight as he has been under 260 yards passing in 4 of 7 games. His passing prop is listed at 250.5 yards and could continue to fall.

Zach Wilson has a passing prop only 34 yards shy of what Herbert’s is at 216.5 yards. I don’t feel Wilson has the upside at 8.8K to be the optimal Captain tonight but will have him in the Flex vs this bad pass defense tonight. I will be projecting Wilson for around 15 DK points tonight vs Herbert at around 19 DK points.

RB

Austin Ekeler has the slate high price tag of 12K flat tonight. The Chargers must lean heavily on him tonight in both the run and passing game as the Jets have 2 elite cornerbacks that can lock down the pass catchers. Ekeler has caught 4+ passes in 10 of 11 last Chargers wins that he played in. I will be overweight on him in both the Captain and Flex positions. Josh Kelley is nothing more than a large field GPP sprinkle for me tonight at 2.6K. Rush/rec props are: Ekeler 86.5 and Kelley has a rush prop of 23.5 yards. Ekeler is the game favorite to score a touchdown at -125.

Breece Hall has been incorporated into the offense more so over the last 3 weeks and has scored 20+ DK points in all 3 games. I will be well overweight on him tonight in both the Captain and Flex positions. We have a low total game here and the Chargers rush defense is giving up 18+ DK points in their last 6 games. Dalvin Cook’s snaps have dropped in every game with him only playing on 8 snaps last week and is a complete fade for me. Michael Carter is a deep GPP punt play at the min $200. Hall has a rush/rec prop of 86.5 yards the same as Ekeler but Is +110 to score a touchdown.

WR

Keenan Allen 11.6K is the only man left standing from the 3 WR set the Chargers began the season with. I will have him some in the Captain but I will be underweight on him as a whole tonight vs this tough secondary in a lower-scoring matchup. I plan to project him for around 16-17 DK points as I would rather try and jam in Ekeler. Allen has been held under 100 yards receiving in his last 4 games. Quentin Johnson will be asked to shoulder more work tonight with Palmer out and his price tag is very cheap at only 3.6K. Johnson is a solid option in both the Captain and Flex positions. If Quentin is Captain, I want Herbert in the Flex with him. The Chargers activated Jalen Guyton as this was the first week, he had been in the game plan and at practice. Guyton is only playable on FanDuel as DK left him out of the player pool but he is min price on FD. Derius Davis and Simi Fehoko should play some snaps and are large-field GPP punts at best. Receiving props: Allen 74.5, Johnson 32.5, and Davis 14.5 yards. Allen is +150 to score and Johnson is +300.

Garrett Wilson draws one of the better matchups in the league tonight. Wilson is priced at 9.6K and has 46 targets over the last 4 games, catching 7 for 100 last week. After scoring in the first 3 games of the year Wilson has been on the wrong side of TD variance the last 5 weeks. I think Wilson has a good chance to outscore Keenan at 2K less and will have him in the Captain and Flex tonight. Allen Lazard is a fine GPP Flex option and Cobb at $200 is a fine punt if you need to save. Receiving props: Wilson 67.5, Lazard 31.5 and Cobb 10.5 yards. Wilson is +155 to score a touchdown tonight.

TE

The Chargers could play more two tight end sets tonight with both Everett and Parham on the field with limited WR options. Everett is priced a little high for my liking at 5.6K vs Parham at 3.2K and I would lean toward Parham, but both are Flex-only options for me. Everett has a prop of 27.5 yards and Parham is at 16.5 yards.

Tyler Conklin looks to be a strong value option tonight at 3K flat as he has the same receiving prop as Everett 2.6K higher. I think we see him bounce back from the 0-catch game last week as he had 3+ catches in his 5 games prior to that. I should be well overweight on him tonight as I will project him for around 8 points.

DEF/K

The Chargers defense is priced up at 5K tonight and I will be underweight on them. I do have a decent amount of conviction on the Jets defense tonight playing at home vs a mistake-prone QB like Herbert at 4.2K. Herbert has thrown 4 interceptions in his last 4 games and taken 15 sacks this season. I may even include the Jets defense at Captain for a sprinkle. We have a low total of 41 points, and I will have both kickers in the Flex position tonight.
