- Dallas Goedert was on the field for 100% of snaps last week but is the tenth most expensive player available for the MNF DFS slate.
- Jalen Reagor is seeing the odds on his reception total (3.5) shading toward the over (-160), facing the worst passing defense in the league.
- David Moore may be a boom or bust type player; however, his ability to return punts could provide additional value to DFS players.
PHILADELPHIA – When playing in single-game DFS slates, finding the players who score the most is a crucial component to win.
However, most of the most-expensive players have high ownership, which creates a very even scoring field across participants.
With only six spots to fill, finding those valuable players to complete the Monday Night Football DFS lineup can mean all of the difference.
Obviously, the Captain spot (at 1.5x the value and price at DraftKings) will be rather straightforward for most; however, the remaining five flex spots can be a toss-up.
In Monday Night’s Seattle Seahawks vs Philadelphia Eagles game, some of the DFS sleepers may have DFS players winning unexpectedly.
Dallas Goedert ($6,400)
Without Zach Ertz in the lineup, Goedert has proven to be quite the reliable target for Carson Wentz. As Jalen Hurts is being rumored to get the start, this still bodes well for the emerging tight end.
Priced as the tenth most expensive player on DFS for Monday Night, Goedert is coming off back to back games with six targets. Catching four and five passes, respectively, Goedert also recorded a touchdown in the Eagles’ last game.
One thing to take note of in support of Goedert is his offensive snap total. Increasing from 84% of snaps to 93% and then 100% of snaps over the last three games, the Eagles have made it clear they want Goedert on the field as much as possible.
One negative that could impact his ability to score is the Seahawks’ focus against tight ends.
Even allowing three touchdowns to the tight end position this season, the Seahawks have not allowed a single TE to score double digits.
Jalen Reagor ($5,800)
Sitting three positions cheaper than Goedert, the Eagles’ rookie wideout in Jalen Reagor also provides excellent value.
For those living under a rock, the Seahawks’ pass defense has been absolutely terrible this year. Allowing nearly 3450 passing yards already, no team has allowed more passing yards on the season, with the second-place team (Atlanta Falcons) being over 200 yards behind the Seahawks.
This leaves Reagor as a solid option on the field.
Reagor is only projected at 46.5 receiving yards on legal sports betting sites, but is seeing heavy shading (-160) on the over (3.5) for his reception total.
The rookie wideout has only started five games this season; however, three of those came in the last month, where he has increased his snap percentage in that time.
Reagor has never caught over four passes in his career but has hit four exactly in three games. If Reagor can find the endzone, one of the cheaper DFS wide receivers can help players move up the scoring chain.
David Moore ($4,600)
Priced near the bottom of the barrel, David Moore will certainly be a boom or bust acquisition.
However, the receiver often lines up the right side of the field and Moore’s Week 12 performance against the Buffalo Bills proved how much of a boom he can create.
Moore ended the game with four catches for 71 yards and a touchdown but it was the routes he runs that make his dangerous.
Set to either float toward the outside as a relief or down the field for a bomb, Moore allows Wilson to dump it down when plays don’t work out well.
Moore’s snap count percentage has only surpassed the 56%-mark one time (61%, Week 10) and Chris Carson’s return to the lineup could see this number continue to hover around 50%.
Still, all it takes is one pass from Wilson… or even a punt return for a touchdown. Getting about one chance per game to return punts, Moore averages nearly a dozen yards per return on the season, which would equate to top-5 in NFL (if he averaged 1.25 punt returns per game).
With so many changes able to be made on DFS lineups near the bottom, taking a player like David Moore, who will likely have an ownership level below 10% could be the reason for a monster payout.
