MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOWDOWN: RAIDERS AT LIONS

Raiders (19.5) AT Lions (27.5)

QB

Jimmy G missed last week’s game but is on track to start tonight vs the Lions. Garoppolo is priced at 9.4K and hasn’t been a good fantasy producer outside of the game vs Pittsburgh where he scored 23.66 DK points. Outside of that game, he has only scored over 15 DK points one time and that was week 1 vs the Broncos. I will have him projected for around 14-17 points and see where he hits in the sims.

Jared Goff is priced at 10.4K tonight and is back inside the dome where I generally look to target him. This looks like a great bounce-back spot for Goff after failing to record a touchdown last week for the first time this season. The Bears were able to put up 30 points on this defense last week and Detriot has a much more explosive team and I expect a similar outcome here.

RB

Josh Jacobs has projected very well this season but is yet to hit the 100-yard mark on the ground. Jacobs did hit 100 yards all-purpose vs the Chargers after catching 8 passes for 81 yards but has only caught 3 passes in the last 2 games. Josh is averaging 2.7 yards per carry this season. The Lions have held opposing running backs under 15 DK points in 4 of the last 5 games with the Ravens being the only team to surpass that number last week. Zamir White is a deep GPP dart throw at 1.6K. Jacobs has a rush/rec prop of 81.5 yards and is -110 to score a touchdown.

Jahmyr Gibbs will once again shoulder the load here for the Lions without Montgomery. Gibbs played 65 of 75 snaps last week vs the Ravens and got there in garbage time catching numerous dump-offs. Gibbs rushed the ball 11 times for 68 yards and a touchdown to go with 9 catches for 58 yards. The Raiders have surrendered 30+ DK points the last 2 weeks and 40+ vs the Bills earlier this season. The game script sets up great for Gibbs here and I will be overweight on him in both the Captain and Flex positions. Reynolds at 3.2K had 3 carries and 1 catch last week and is in play for a cheap Flex option. Gibbs has a rush/rec prop of 99.5 yards and is -135 to score a touchdown.

WR

Davante Adams priced at 10.8K hasn’t made an impact in a game since week 3 vs Pittsburgh when he put up 40+ DK points. Adams was targeted 12 times last week but was only able to catch 7 for 57 yards. Adams has the upside to break the slate like he did in week 3 so I will have around 5-10% of him in Captain but will look to be around field average or just under in the Flex position. Jakobi Meyers priced at 8.2K should be the more popular option on the Raiders side. Meyers has posted 15+ DK points in 4 of his last 5 games and has scored a touchdown in 3 straight games. Meyers is my preferred option over Adams based on his consistent play and the salary savings. Tre Tucker’s snaps have increased in the last 3 games and looks to be a great salary saver on this showdown slate. Tucker is priced at only $600 and has caught 2 passes in each of the last 2 games. Receiving props: Adams 75.5, Meyers 61.5, and Renfrow 8.5 with Adams +145 and Meyers +215 to score a touchdown.

Amon-Ra St. Brown heads the Lions pass catchers here at 11.2K. St. Brown has seen a massive target share the last 2 weeks catching 25 of 34 targets for 226 yards and one touchdown. Amon-Ra and Gibbs will be the 2 highest-owned Captain and Flex options on the slate and I will try and jam in as much of Brown as I can in both positions. Josh Reynolds priced at 6.2K makes for a solid Flex option with Jameson Williams’s usage starting to pick up. If I had to choose 1 I would go with the upside of Williams here and the 1K price savings. Kalif Raymond is another large field cheaper option for the Flex position. Receiving props: St. Brown 84.5, Reynolds 34.5, and Williams 26.5 yards with St. Brown -120, Reynolds +185, and Williams +200 to score a touchdown.

TE

Michael Mayer is priced at 3.8K and has taken on a bigger role in this offense over the last 3 weeks and makes for a solid value option in the Flex. Austin Hooper priced at $800 has caught 2 passes in the last 3 games and is a guy I want to be overweight on in the Flex for the savings. Receiving props: Mayer 22.5 yards and Hooper 11.5.

Sam LaPorta priced at 7.4K has flashed a big upside this season as a rookie. I would once again expect to see Sam see around 6-9 targets tonight with the upside for 10-12. I will look to get slightly overweight on him in the Flex position and possibly a little in the Captain. LaPorta has a prop of 45.5 yards and is +145 to score a touchdown.

DEF/K

I will be underweight on the Raider defense but will have Carlson in the Flex position for a value. The Lions defense is priced up to 5K but will have exposure to them as they have been great at causing turnovers this year and get a good matchup tonight. Patterson is priced under 5K and will make my Flex pool as well.
