PITTSBURGH – Due to the circumstances caused by COVID-19, there will be two games played for Monday Night Football in Week 13. Kicking off the night will be the Pittsburgh Steelers as they host the Washington Football Team followed by a showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and Buffalo Bills.
With two games now being played, DraftKings is offering two daily fantasy football showdown tournaments for each game.
Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Washington Football Team
Terry McLaurin, $8,800: Terry McLaurin is one of the few bright spots for this Washington offense and he certainly proves his worth every time he steps foot on the field no matter the defensive coverage.
McLaurin has been red hot in his last five games, going for over 90 yards in four of those games. He has also seen double-digit fantasy points in each of the five games as well.
The tough Steelers secondary should not worry fantasy GMs at all, as he has proven to be one of the best young receivers in the league. Also, the Steelers are coming off of a game where they allowed the opposing WR1 to go for 84 yards and a touchdown.
Eric Ebron, $6,800: Ebron is coming off of his best receiving game of the season as he saw a season-high in targets (11), receptions (7), and yards (54). It is clear that Ben Roethlisberger is connecting with Ebron and has targeted him five or more times in their last six games.
What brings Ebron’s value up further is his matchup against the Washington defense that ranks 26 in the league when defending tight ends. This defense is coming off of a game against the Cowboys in Week 12 where they allowed the opposing tight end to reel in five receptions.
That being said, Ebron could be in line for yet another busy night which could boost his fantasy value.
Steelers D/ST, $5,800: When in doubt, go the easy route. That should be the saying when drafting the Steelers defense to an NFL fantasy roster as they offer the easiest points that a fantasy team could come by.
This defense has scored 12 or more points in four of their last five games and is a great choice, offering tremendous value at their asking price. In their last five games, they have gone for eight interceptions, 15 sacks and two touchdowns.
They also have a great matchup with a risky Alex Smith, who has thrown five interceptions and has been sacked 15 times in his five games as a starter. That being said, fantasy GM’s can fire up the Steelers secondary with ease.
San Francisco 49ers Vs. Buffalo Bills
Raheem Mostert, $9,600: In his first game back from IR, Raheem Mostert started right where he left off, going for 43 yards and a touchdown for 11.3 fantasy points.
Heading into Week 13, he has a decent matchup against a Buffalo run defense that ranks 24 in the league. The Bills have allowed for 44 and 100 rushing yards in their last two games and being that their defense against opposing wide receivers is 10th in the league, the Niners could look for a more run-heavy offense.
With that said, not only would he offer great value fantasy-wise but also betting wise as his total for rushing yards is set at 53.5 on legal betting sites in which he could come by easily.
Gabriel Davis, $5,800: Gabriel Davis has looked solid in his last two outings as he has gone for 70 and 79 yards which was good for 17 and 16.9 fantasy points.
He has outperformed both Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs as well during this two-game stretch which should not be ignored. Also, the fact that Diggs and Beasley are going to draw the majority of the coverage should help Davis see more targets.
Jordan Reed, $5,000: Jordan Reed could be in line for a nice bounce-back game after only recording 3.8 points his game and he has a great defensive matchup against the Bills defense that ranks 27 against opposing tight ends.
In fact, the Bills defense has allowed for opposing tight ends to go for 67, 34, and 60 yards in their last three games.
Reed could take advantage of that being that in the game prior to him going for just 3.8, he went for 11.2 points as he pulled in 62 yards on five receptions.
