Monday night presents us with an intradivisional game to cap off Week 3 between the Eagles and the Cowboys. These two teams will look to continue the early-season trend of prime-time games living up to the hype.
The game also sets up for a great game on SuperDraft DFS. If you are new to SuperDraft, there is no salary cap. Instead, each player is given an individual score multiplier. You can choose whoever you want for your lineup, but correctly choosing your multipliers will be important.
Below are my top three plays for Monday Night Football on SuperDraft DFS.
DeVonta Smith (1.75x score multiplier)
Smith has quickly integrated himself in this Philly offense, as he’s very clearly been Jalen Hurts’ favorite target. Through the first two weeks, Smith leads the Eagles in target share (17 targets, 28.81%) and is second on the team behind only Dallas Goedert in red-zone targets (3, 21.43%) despite his size that people were so critical of.
While Week 2 didn’t necessarily go as planned (only two catches on seven targets), Smith finds himself in a prime bounceback spot against a leaky Dallas secondary. Through the first two weeks, no team has allowed more aerial production than Dallas, as they’ve allowed 346 passing yards per game and five touchdowns through the air. In a game where the Eagles will have to score frequently to stay alive, Smith profiles as an amazing option with his 1.75x multiplier.
Jalen Hurts (1.1x)
Echoing the rationale for Smith, Hurts should benefit greatly from the matchup and unlike his counterpart on the other side of this game, Dak Prescott, he gets a 10% score multiplier. Hurts has looked like he belongs on the field through the first two weeks, averaging 227 passing yards, 72 rushing yards, and four total touchdowns without turning the ball over.
While Hurts only appeared in four starts last season, one of them was against Dallas. In that game in Week 15 in 2020, Hurts posted 342 passing yards, 69 rushing yards, and a passing touchdown. Against a defense that bleeds production, Hurts’ ceiling is astronomical.
CeeDee Lamb (1.35x)
The whole Cowboys’ passing attack had a disappointing outing against the Chargers in Week 2, but this is a great get-right spot for the offense, particularly CeeDee Lamb with a generous 1.35x multiplier.
Lamb’s 25.84% target share ranks second on the team to Amari Cooper (as does his 23.08% red-zone target share), but given the volume that this offense passes at, the fact that he’s the second option doesn’t matter. He’s already logged 23 targets (only one behind Cooper) through two games, tying for a team-lead with 16 catches while adding a receiving touchdown.
He’ll match up with Darius Slay, who’s allowing a 67% catch rate and 0.3 fantasy points per route, closely trailing Lamb’s production mark of 0.41 fantasy points per route. With an exploitable matchup, Lamb should feast with a 1.35x score multiplier.
1. DeVonta Smith (2.65x champion multiplier)
2. Jalen Hurts (1.65x)
3. Dak Prescott (1.5x)
4. CeeDee Lamb (2.05x)
5. Ezekiel Elliott (2.2x)
