MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: COWBOYS AT CHARGERS

Cowboys (26.5) AT Chargers (24.5)

QB

We get what looks to be a great action-packed game for MNF. Dak is priced at 10K for this matchup as he looks to bounce back from the beating he took from the 49ers last week. Dak has struggled every game to open this season as he only averages 12.5 DK points per game this year. This is a nice spot for him to finally get something going as this Chargers defense has been beatable. I will have Dak in the Flex only for this game as I like others better in the Captain. Dak has a passing prop of 257.5 yards.

Justin Herbert is priced at a fair 10.8K for this high-paced matchup. Herbert has been one of the more consistent QBs this year scoring 25.6 DK points per game. The Chargers come off their bye week and look to build off their last 2 wins. Herbert has a passing prop of 279.5 and a rushing prop of 11.5. I will have Herbert in the Captain some but I want at least 1 pass catcher paired with him.

RB

After a strong start to the season from Pollard scoring 18+ DK points in the first 3 games he has struggled to get anything going. The game script has not gone his way though in these last 2 games so I expect to see him bounce back here. I expect to see him back in that 20-touch range. Rico Dowdle priced at 2K flat should see around 8-12 snaps and could fall into the endzone making him fine for GPPs. Rush/rec prop for Pollard is 92.5 yards and is -165 to score a touchdown.

Austin Ekeler will return from injury off the bye week and leads the slate in pricing at 11.2K. Ekeler had 164 total yards in week 1 before going down with an injury. I expect him to resume his full workload in both the rushing and passing game giving him one of the biggest upsides on the slate. He will be in my Captain and Flex pool and I want to get overweight on him in both areas. Ekeler rush/rec prop is 85.5 and I like the over on this number. Ekeler has a very high likelihood of scoring a touchdown with a prop listed at -195.

WR

Dak has taken CeeDee Lamb down with him during his struggles this season. With that, we get a great price tag on Lamb here at only 9K, which is the lowest he has been in 2 years. I really like him to bounce back big in this potential shootout and return to a double-digit target share. I will be well overweight on Lamb in both the Captain and Flex positions. Michael Gallup has a very nice value tag of 2.8K and is well underpriced for this game. Gallup has 5+ targets in the last 3 games. Cooks would be a fine GPP flex play for me as well. Receiving props are Lamb 70.5, Gallup 38.5, and Cooks 35.5. Lamb is +105 to score a touchdown.

Keenan Allen leads the Bolts here and has seen a ton of usage with Ekeler being out and the loss of Williams. This looks to be a really good-paced matchup for Allen and should see double-digit targets. Allen has a 34 and 48 DK point game already this season and will be in play for both Captain and Flex for me.  Palmer was a late add to the injury report which normally isn’t a good sign so we need to monitor this news leading up to lock. Palmer has filled in well for the loss of Williams and has a fair price if he is able to go. If Palmer is unable to go the Chargers would lean on rookie Quentin Johnson even more in this spot to be the outside big-body receiver. Johnson played half the snaps last game and should be even more involved off the bye week. Derius Davis would be another guy asked to step up if Palmer is ruled out. Davis has a great value tag of 1.4K and caught 2 passes last game. Receiving props are Allen 83.5, Palmer 47.5, and Johnson 27.5. Allen is +125 to score a touchdown.

TE

Dallas has a couple of options at tight end with Jake Ferguson leading the way at 5.2K. Ferguson has 7 targets in 3 of 5 games and has caught at least 3 passes in the last 4 games. Luke Schoonmaker is priced at the stone min $200 but hasn’t caught a pass in the last 3 weeks but has seen a few targets. He would be a GPP punt option here. Ferguson has a prop of 36.5 yards.

The Chargers also have a couple of tight ends with Gerald Everett leading the way at 4.6k. Everett is playing just over half the snaps and has caught at least 2 passes in every game. Donald Parham remains on the injury report and is listed as questionable. He did practice fully to end the week and should be able to suit up. Parham has found the endzone 3 times this season and is fully in play as a good value. Everett has a prop of 25.5 yards.

DEF/K

Both defenses are fairly priced here in the 3K range and I will have both in the flex pool around even with the field. The kickers are both firmly in play here with a total of over 50 points. Dicker would be my favorite based on his price of 4.4K vs the 5K of Aubrey. I will be even or slightly over on the kickers tonight.
