DFS MNF Showdown Picks Week 5

Facebooktwitter

The Monday Night Football game has the (2-2) Green Bay Packers traveling to Sin City to take on the (1-3) Las Vegas Raiders. This is not really “The Game of the Week”, but there are enough good players to make this and interesting slate for a Showdown Contest (as long as Jimmy Garoppolo plays).

Here are my picks for the Monday Night Football Showdown slate…

 

GREEN BAY PACKERS PICKS

The Las Vegas Raiders are a sinking ship. They have lost three games in a row and their defense is giving up 28 points per game in those losses. The Packers are starting to get healthy with AARON JONES and CHRISTIAN WATSON back in the lineup. I like JORDAN LOVE in the Captain Position in my Cash Contest lineups. Jones and Watson are really good FLEX Position players in this slate (If Jones plays in this game).

‘O’ Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” ROMEO DOBBS is having a good season. He has scored 18+ DK Points in three of the four games this year. He will likely be my highest owned player from the Packers side of the ball.

LUKE MUSGRAVE is recovering from a concussion. He will be a good option if he suits up.

The PACKERS DEFENSE/ST and ANDERS CARLSON are both in play tonight, simply because I like the Packers to win this game.

My “punt plays” for the Packers include DONTAYVION WICKS and PATRICK TAYLOR.

 

LAS VEGAS RAIDERS PICKS

The Las Vegas Raiders are a bad football team, but they are a good Fantasy Football team. They have one of the best WRs in the NFL and they are not afraid to use him. DAVANTE ADAMS is averaging 17 targets in his last two games. He is going to get a lot of passes thrown his way in a “revenge game.” I like Adams as the Captain in my Tournament Contest lineups tonight (If he suites up).

JIMMY GAROPPOLO will be back tonight and that should help the Raiders offense. He has had one good game, one “OK” game and one really poor game this year. We really do not know what we are going to get from Jimmy-G, so I will play him in the FLEX Position in Cash and Tournament Contests tonight.

JOSH JACOBS looked horrible to start the season, but he is starting to heat up. Last week Jacobs looked like the RB who won the 2022 rushing title, when he scored 27.9 DK Points against the Chargers. Jacobs could be a decent contrarian pick at the Captain Position tonight, but most of my shares will be from the FLEX Position.

JACOBY MEYERS is a decent value play from the Raiders side of the ball. He blew up in Week 1 and then went out with a concussion. If the Packers give DeaVante Adams too much attention, it could turn into the Jacoby Meyers Show like it did in Week 1.

My two “punt plays” from the Raiders side of the ball include HUNTER RENFROW and ADMEER ABDULLAH.
