DraftKings Week One Monday Night players to target

Set a great DraftKings NFL Line-up on Monday Night.

The NFL has scheduled 2 Monday night games (like they always do) to kick off the 2016 regular season and that will allow for Monday Night only Fantasy Football on Draftkings. As soon as the Monday night contests are posted on DK, I’ll highlight them right here.

The Featured Monday Night Contest on Draftkings is the $600,000 NFL Monday Night Doubleheader. At only $3 to enter it features a firstplace prize of $50,000 and pays out over 59000 winners.


Here’s a early look at those games and who you should consider using in your line ups on Monday, September 12th

Week One Monday Night Lines: 

7:10 PM ET PIT -3 at WAS (50) and 10:20 PM ET LA -2.5 at SF (44.5)

This years Monday night Kick-off has 2 interesting games to watch. The PIT at WAS game is projected to be high scoring with plenty of action. You want to have a big part of it.

Both teams had trouble stopping opposing offenses last year and will still have problems. Both of those offenses, especially PIT can put up points quickly. Stacking Roethliberger and Brown would be ideal, but is an expensive proposition, like almost 40% of your cap space. I like the Cousins/Reed stack with A Brown as my number one WR.

R Kelly WAS RB 4300 could be starting in place of M Jones WAS RB (shoulder), if he is, he is a must start value play for Monday night.

LA at SF puts 2 offenses against each other that last year were pretty disappointing. T Gurley is the best RB on the Monday Night schedule and should be worked into your line up some how, some way.

V McDonald SF TE looks like an interesting Value Play, he and B Gabbert SF QB have seemed to develop a connection with each other at the end of last season and during the preseason this year.

I really like the following players on these Monday games:

QB: B Roethlisberger PIT 7800, K Cousins WAS 7400, B Gabbert SF 5400

RB: D Williams PIT 7000, T Gurley LA 7800, R Kelly WAS 4300

WR: A Brown PIT 9800, M Wheaton PIT 5400, P Garcon WAS 4400, D Jackson WAS 6100, S Coates PIT 3700

TE: J Reed WAS 6600, V McDonald SF 3100

DST: Start  LA 3800 or SF 3100. As the lowest scoring game tonight, these Defenses should accumulate points.

QB/WR Stacks: Roelisberger/A Brown PIT 17600, K Cousins/J Reed WAS 14000, Gabbert/McDonald SF 8500

The limited schedule on Monday night will allow a great deal of Salary Cap flexibility and offer many chances to set up multiple lineups to increase your chances of winning on the Monday Night Double.
