Rams vs. 49ers high bargains are Brandon Aiyuk, Ben Skowronek, and Van Jefferson
The hype and drama surrounding Week 10 Monday Evening Soccer is intense in fantasy soccer circles. Can Odell Beckham Jr. have a direct impression, notably with Robert Woods now out for the yr? Is Brandon Aiyuk formally a WR3/flex play in fantasy soccer? Can we belief Jimmy Garoppolo after two consecutive QB1 weeks? These and different questions need to be addressed after we make our Monday Evening Soccer picks. With a give attention to excessive upside, right here’s our favourite Week 10 Monday Evening Soccer DFS lineup, plus a few particular bargains.
Monday Evening NFL DFS Picks | 49ers
At 3-5, San Francisco is approaching must-win mode. I’m anticipating their offense to successfully problem the Rams’ vaunted protection. These are 49ers we’d begin in our DFS lineup. Mixed with our Rams picks, they fall inside the single-game event and 50/50 wage cap, with a give attention to costly high-upside gamers and cheap gamers with respectable TD potential.
Deebo Samuel, WR, 49ers ($13,000)
This lineup might accommodate a Matthew Stafford/Van Jefferson tandem or a Darrell Henderson/Deebo Samuel duo. The latter presents extra upside, in order that’s what we advocate. Whereas Jalen Ramsey is a lockdown cornerback, it’s fairly doable he gained’t be assigned to only one participant. Samuel must be high-quality.
George Kittle, TE, 49ers ($10,500)
In George Kittle’s breakout 2018 marketing campaign (88-1,377-5 receiving line), his main competitors at wideout consisted of Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin, and Trent Taylor. The next season’s contingent wasn’t a lot better. In different phrases, the mystique of Kittle as an elite TE1 is tied partly to expertise (little doubt about it) but in addition to being an enormous fish in a small pond.
This yr, he’s competing for targets with two glorious receivers. That helps clarify his comparatively gradual begin to the season earlier than he received damage in early October. That mentioned, Kittle stays a key cog in San Francisco’s offense, and I like that he’s averaging 9 targets in his final three contests. His DFS worth can also be interesting, as he can comfortably outperform price-based expectations with a really doable 12+ level outing.
Brandon Aiyuk, WR, 49ers ($7,500)
His worth appears like an oversight. How might San Francisco’s No. 2 wideout be valued so low? Brandon Aiyuk spent weeks toiling in obscurity as Samuel soaked up monster WR1 numbers. Final week, Aiyuk lastly outperformed him. This worth is simply too good to move up.
Monday Evening NFL DFS Picks | Rams
The next are Rams gamers we’d begin in our DFS MNF lineup. Mixed with the 49ers gamers listed above, this lineup would match inside the single-game DFS MNF wage cap.
Cooper Kupp, WR, Rams ($16,000)
You probably have an MVP slot, we’d advocate Cooper Kupp. What he’s accomplished this yr is extraordinary, and with Woods out and Beckham Jr. nonetheless getting acclimated, Kupp undoubtedly must be a co-focus of this offense.
Darrell Henderson, RB, Rams ($12,000)
And the opposite offensive focus? Darrell Henderson, whose distinctive working and move catching have made him a back-end RB1 with room to pop.
San Francisco’s protection has struggled in opposition to the run. Henderson might get 20+ touches and is an automated DFS begin given his huge yardage and TD upside.
Monday Evening NFL DFS Picks | Different Bargains
The next are a few low cost bargains we might advocate in the event you’re attempting to spherical out your lineup inside the wage cap. These gamers have low flooring and stable ceilings.
Van Jefferson, WR, Rams ($8,000)
What position will Van Jefferson play? That’s the massive query. If we knew for sure that Beckham Jr. could be largely irrelevant, Jefferson would presumably tackle a much bigger position, no less than for tonight. He has a pleasant WR3 ceiling, however he additionally has a WR5 flooring.
Ben Skowronek, WR, Rams ($6,000)
There are stories that Ben Skowronek will begin rather than the injured Woods. It’s arduous to think about the 2021 seventh-rounder thriving. Nevertheless, in the event you assemble a lineup loaded with stars and have $6,000 leftover for the ultimate roster spot, Skowronek is your man.
Jeff Wilson Jr., RB, 49ers ($5,000)
Jeff Wilson Jr. is lastly wholesome, however he hasn’t seen motion. That would change tonight. I’m not shopping for Elijah Mitchell in opposition to the Rams’ run protection. It’s not arduous to think about head coach Kyle Shanahan getting Wilson some touches. In spite of everything, Wilson loved 4 dominant performances final season and is a menace to Mitchell’s fantasy manufacturing atop San Francisco’s depth chart. Wilson’s flooring is zero factors, however his ceiling is round an RB4 — not unhealthy at this worth.
