Monday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Vikings at Bears

Should there be a federal investigation into why the Bears are on prime time again? Maybe, though perhaps there should be other governmental priorities at the moment.

Injuries are going to play an outsized factor in how we build our lineups in these single-game contests. Let's get into it.

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 10 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

This game has an over/under of 43.5 points, one point less than at the start of the week. The Vikings, 3.5 point road favorites, have an implied total of 23.5 points while the Bears' implied total is 20.
