Instead, should you target a star wide receiver or running back in your Monday Night Football DFS strategy? Players like Stefon Diggs, Justin Jefferson, Derrick Henry, and A.J. Brown all project to be impact classic and showdown NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football.

In the Broncos vs. Seahawks Week 1 Monday Night Football matchup, Kaylor listed Denver wide receiver Jerry Jeudy as one of his top Showdown DFS picks. The result: Jeudy hauled in 4 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown and was the highest scoring fantasy player in the game.
Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to Bills vs. Titans and Eagles vs. Vikings on Monday Night Football Week 2 and just locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see his picks and analysis at SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Bills vs. Titans, Eagles vs. Vikings on MNF
One of Kaylor’s top NFL DFS picks for the Week 2 Monday Night Football slate is Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs. The 28-year-old is an integral part of Buffalo’s high-octane offense and should see his targets increase with Gabe Davis expected to be limited or sidelined on Monday Night Football. In the Bills’ season opener, Diggs hauled in eight passes for 122 yards and a touchdown on nine targets. Kaylor is expecting a repeat performance this week against the Titans.
“If Gabe Davis is out or limited, Diggs’ target share should increase substantially. Tennessee’s secondary is banged up, and they don’t really have a cornerback that can keep up with Diggs consistently. On top of that, I actually view Diggs as a value play this week with him coming in at $1,500 less on DraftKings and $1,100 less on FanDuel than Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson. He’s one of my favorite Captain and MVP plays tonight.” Kaylor told SportsLine.
In the second Monday Night Football game, Kaylor is targeting Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook. Philadelphia struggled mightily against the run in Week 1, allowing Lions running back D’Andre Swift to rush for 144 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. Swift also caught 3 passes for 31 yards against the Eagles. Kaylor believes Philadelphia will be committed to slowing down Justin Jefferson, which should open the door for a strong night from Cook.
“Philadelphia’s secondary is talented and will be focused on limiting the impact of Justin Jefferson. In a hostile environment, I see the Minnesota head coach Kevin O’Connell leaning on Cook to take some of the pressure off Kirk Cousins. My projection is a floor of 20 touches for the three-time Pro Bowl running back.” You can see the rest of Kaylor’s NFL DFS picks here.
