Monday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Patriots at Jets

Monday Night Football features two teams who would definitely be better off losing the rest of their games and starting a total franchise rebuild. Hence, you're going to consider stacks that might bring you to a dark place.

But if that dark place brings a bunch of single-game contest cash-money, so be it.

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 9 Monday Night Football matchup. Constructing single-game lineups requires some imagination, especially for large-field tournament purposes.

We want to create a lineup that reflects a certain kind of game script, choosing players who would thrive—or at least have the chance to thrive—if their teams got out to a lead or were left chasing points in the second half. There’s also the neutral script that doesn't tend to inflate opportunity for any one player or team. Understanding the likelihood of each scenario and piecing together a roster that would score a bunch of points in such a scenario is key to success in these single-game contests.

Remember: For the captain spot on DraftKings, the price (and fantasy points awarded) are multiplied by 1.5. On FanDuel, the prices are the same throughout, but the MVP slot receives 1.5 times the fantasy point value of the other roster spots.

Vegas Spread And Total

The over-under for this game sits at a hideous 41 points. The Patriots, who started the week as 7.5-point favorites, are now favored by 9.5. New England's implied total has crept up to 25.5 points and the Jets' total has slipped down to 16 points.
