The New Orleans Saints host the Miami Dolphins Monday night to cap off Week 16 of the NFL season. The game is expected to be a low-scoring affair; oddsmakers have the over/under at 37, with the Dolphins coming in as 3.5-point favorites.

Let’s dive in and find our three top DFS plays of the slate on SuperDraft.

Top Plays

Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins (Champion: 1.5x | Superflex:1x Multiplier)

The Dolphins come into this game in search of their seventh straight win. In his last four starts, Tagovailoa has thrown for seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He had two games with no interceptions going into the bye week before throwing two against the Jets last week. The Saints currently give up 20.2 fantasy points per game to the quarterback position. While they get the fourth-most hits on quarterbacks, Tagovailoa is dangerous with a collapsing pocket. He’s not a true running QB — he’s topped out at 29 yards this year — but he can run when called on, with three rushing scores on the season.

Jaylen Waddle, Miami Dolphins (Champion: 2.2x | Superflex:1.45x)

Waddle has been Tagovailoa’s favorite target this season. He had back-to-back games with double-digit targets before missing last week on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He has reached 10-plus targets six times in 13 games this season. He’ll have a favorable matchup Monday as well, lining up across from C.J. Gardner-Johnson. Playing the majority of his snaps in the slot, Waddle averages 6 receptions and 74.5 receiving yards per game.

Marquez Callaway, New Orleans Saints (Champion: 2.85x | Superflex: 1.9x)

We may call this point-chasing, but Callaway is coming off of his best game of the season. He had a season-high nine targets last week, catching six for 112 yards. While the targets have been scattered throughout this Saints offense, Callaway has been the most consistent in that category, with 10 straight games of at least 4. He also has the best matchup versus the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins are currently giving up the fourth-most points to opposing wide receivers, 31.6 fantasy points per game.
