Week 3 Underdog Monday Night Football Single Game DFS

Monday Night Football Single Game DFS

Love DFS? Wanna try something fast-paced and fun?  I’ll be here each and every Monday leading up to kick-off to give you additional insight into building an ideal squad for Underdog Monday Night Football Single Game DFS.  Are you ready?

My goal isn’t to build your lineup for you, it’s to be a guide by using my experience as a sports bettor and by using the membership tools available at Team Rise or Fall. With that being said, let’s look at the fun, new Underdog Single Game DFS Week 1 format! But first… a word from my sponsor 🙂

We recently added Individual Sport memberships to our offerings here at Rise or Fall. If you would like to subscribe for an NFL Monthly or NFL Weekly without access to any of the other sports you now have that option. 

All memberships come with Discord Access, however, only the *Monthly All Access* for $39.99 comes with the $20 monthly credit to Fantasy Cruncher.

What is the Underdog Monday Night Melee Format?

There isn’t much content out there yet about this format, so I’m excited to bring it to you. These contests can be found in the Underdog Fantasy Lobby or in the NFL section. 

Tonight’s game features the Dallas Cowboys vs the New York Giants. Here are the main rules. I’ll get into your Underdog Monday Night Football Single Game DFS Week 3 strategy below. 

  • Basic Battle Royale
  • Single Game Monday Night Slate (No QB)
  • 4 Round Draft (no salary cap)
  • 3 Person Draft Size
  • 30 Second Clock
  • 4 Flex Player Roster (RBs, WRs, TEs)

WK 3 Monday Night Football Single Game DFS

An unlikely stack option. 

Sterling Shepard + Saquan Barkley

Yeah… I’m probably getting too cute with this one, but why not? This format is snake draft style. If you’re lucky and get to pick first, go with the Quad Father. For your next pick, Shepard is sure to be available. While he is a risky pick, the WR leads the NYGs in targets. That’s not saying a whole lot, but it could be just what you need in this match. 

And Saquan? The man needs no introduction. He’s projected to bring 17.3 fantasy points to your little squad. The Giants are really hurting this week with lots of injuries. I’d expect these two to be getting the bulk of the touches tonight. 

Or just take the highest projected FPPG each round… 

That One Guy

To be honest, while this format is so much fun, tonight’s game doesn’t have a lot of exciting options. The players with the most scoring opportunity will be gone in the first 3 or 4 picks. The remaining players are kind of scrubs. I ran through two different scenarios and ended up with nearly identical projected results as the DFS players I drafted with. You might just get lucky by drafting the top projected scorers each round. I know that sounds like a lame strategy, but tonight’s game is kind of lame. 🙂
