NFL Week 5 comes to a close with a matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The NFL DFS player pool features a pair of quarterbacks with boom-or-bust potential in Green Bay’s Jordan Love and Las Vegas’ Jimmy Garoppolo. Las Vegas wide receiver Davante Adams, who would be playing his first game against his former team, has been battling a shoulder injury and will be a game-time decision. Green Bay running back Aaron Jones (hamstring) remains questionable. Other popular NFL DFS picks for MNF will likely include Josh Jacobs, Romeo Doubs, and Jakobi Meyers. Should they be in your MNF NFL DFS lineups?
Before making any NFL DFS picks for Raiders vs. Packers on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS lineup advice, strategy and player stacks from SportsLine NFL daily Fantasy expert Jimmie Kaylor.
Kaylor is a NFL and DFS expert for SportsLine, who opened the 2022 NFL season by winning DraftKings’ NFL Showdown Thursday Kickoff Millionaire contest. He edged out over 355,000 other entrants in the contest and also has multiple five-figure tournament wins on his DFS resume. Kaylor, who cashed big all season in 2022, has covered the NFL and college football for over a decade as a member of the Pro Football Writers of America, and his background as a former college and NFL player gives him a unique perspective when building his fantasy lineups and locking in his betting picks.
Kaylor hit on epic NFL DFS picks all season in 2022. He was all over Travis Kelce’s four-touchdown performance against the Raiders on Monday Night Football, Kirk Cousins‘ 460-yard, four-TD performance on Thanksgiving Day, and T.J. Hockenson’s 13 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15.
In the Week 2 Eagles vs. Vikings Thursday Night Football matchup Kaylor was all over Justin Jefferson (11-159), D’Andre Swift (175-1), DeVonta Smith (4-132-1), and T.J. Hockenson (7-66-2). Anyone who followed his picks cashed in big.
Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to the Week 5 Packers vs. Raiders matchup on Monday Night Football 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 Raiders vs. Packers on MNF
One of Kaylor’s top NFL DFS picks for Monday night is Las Vegas running back Josh Jacobs. The former Alabama standout led the NFL in rushing yards in 2022, but has yet to really get going in 2023. Jacobs enters Monday Night Football with 62 carries for 166 yards and one touchdown, and 18 catches for 173 receiving yards. He faces a Green Bay defense that has struggled to stop the run this season, and Kaylor expects Jacobs to shine on Monday Night Football.
“Based on preseason expectations, Josh Jacobs has been a fantasy football bust through four weeks in 2023. I expect that to change on Monday night with the Raiders facing a Green Bay defense that has been terrible against the run this season. The Packers allow 155.3 rushing yards per game, the second worst figure in the league, and with Jimmy Garoppolo coming off a concussion, I expect the Raiders to lean heavily on Jacobs on Monday night,” Kaylor told SportsLine.
Part of Kaylor’s MNF DFS strategy also includes rostering Packers quarterback Jordan Love. The former first-round pick out of Utah State has played well in his first season as Green Bay’s full-time starter and enters Monday Night Football coming off back-to-back three touchdown performances. The Raiders are susceptible in their secondary, and Kaylor expects another big game from Love on MNF.
“Jordan Love has some dual-threat ability, which is huge from a DFS perspective, and his ability to make throws from within the pocket seems to be improving with each passing week. With Aaron Jones potentially limited with a hamstring injury, I expect Green Bay to have a pass-heavy attack in what could be an offensive shootout in Las Vegas on Monday night,” Kaylor said.
