Monday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Chiefs at Ravens

We get what the boomers might call a barn burner on Monday night. If this game were a song, zoomers might call it a bop. It's the Ravens and Chiefs, in all its scoring glory, opening infinite avenues to single-contest glory.

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 3 Sunday 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

As if this game didn't start with an obscene over-under, it's climbed over the past few days. As of Sunday night, the over-under sat at a pretty 54 points. The Ravens have an implied total of 28.75 and KC has a total of 25.25. There will be touchdowns.
