The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Cleveland Browns Monday night to cap off Week 17 of the NFL season. It’s most likely Ben Roethlisberger’s last home game for the Steelers and his career. Oddsmakers eye it as a low-scoring game, however, with the total points sitting at 42.

Let’s take a look at our top DFS plays of the slate on SuperDraft.

The Plays

Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns (Champion: 1.5x | Superflex: 1x Multiplier)

Likely be the most popular play of the night, Chubb is in a prime spot once again. He comes in facing a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to the running back position with 25 per game. They have allowed running backs to rush for more than 100 yards in back-to-back games now. For Chubb, that is something he has done well this season. He has eclipsed the 100 rushing yards mark five times this season. In the past two weeks, Chubb has rushed for 217 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll be hard to fade on in this showdown slate as it is built for him to dominate.

Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers (Champion: 1.95x | Superflex: 1.3x)

Johnson has led (or tied for the lead) the Steelers in targets every game he has played this season but one. He is averaging 6.6 receptions and 77.1 receiving yards per game with a 63.9% catch rate. The Steelers have had a down year overall, but Johnson’s numbers have been just fine. He’ll be lining up primarily across from Denzel Ward — per the FTN WR/CB Matchup Tool, that’s the best matchup for the Steelers receivers Monday.

Austin Hooper, Cleveland Browns (Champion: 3x | Superflex: 2x)

There aren’t many bargain options in this game, but Hooper makes for a desirable play. He returned last week against the Green Bay Packers and had five targets, finishing with three receptions for 26 yards, but the entire Cleveland Browns offense was hindered due to the poor play of Baker Mayfield. In Week 14, Hooper did find the end zone, reeling in five receptions on six targets. When healthy and in the lineup, Hooper has been the main target at the tight end position — he has only been out-targeted three times this season by David Njoku or Harrison Bryant.
