Monday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Seahawks at Eagles
This game is chock full of low-cost guys who could pop off Monday night. It's enough to make your scalp tingle with possibility.
Before we jump into how we might take down a single game contest on Monday night, I wanted to let you loyal single game strategists know this will be my last single-game DFS breakdown article of the season. My family begins moving to a new home in earnest this week, leaving me inadequate time to properly break down these single-game slates. I loved analyzing and thinking about how to construct these various single game lineups throughout the season. I hope you did too. They remain a tantalizing thought experiment, week in and week out.
Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 12 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 Seahawks are six-point road favorites, sporting an implied total of 27.5. The Eagles have an implied total of 21.25 points against one of the league's worst secondaries. Makes you think about what their total would have been if Seattle's secondary was even average.
