Monday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Steelers at Bengals

What did we do to deserve this game? The penultimate Monday night contest pits the skeletal remains of the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I honestly do not know what else to say. 2020 is trying to get one last sports laugh in before 2021.

It is vital to remember that single-game slates are not simply a “max salary, play as many big names as possible, and submit” format, especially in larger tournament fields. We need to identify players that can be pieces in their offense’s success, whether in the lead or trailing, as well as the players that could be focal points in a neutral game script. The ability to then take those players and identify which will succeed in the single game format will put us in a better position to succeed as daily fantasy players.

Remember that the captain spot is different on DraftKings than on FanDuel. The captain spot on DraftKings delivers fantasy points and prices multiplied by 1.5. The MVP spot on FanDuel will score at the same rate but without the increased pricing for the player slot. All flex positions score normally.

Vegas Total and Spread

The Steelers are 14.5-point road favorites in a game with a 40.5-point total. Pittsburgh has a 27.5-point implied team total, while Cincinnati has an implied team total of 13.
