Week 5’s Monday Night Football tilt between the Ravens and the Colts provided everyone with the fireworks we desired, ending in an overtime win for the Ravens with both quarterbacks topping 400 passing yards. The SuperDraft breakdown from Monday was on point, with all five listed champion picks posting monster stat lines.
Below is a recap of my top three plays from the SuperDraft DFS Monday night slate for Week 5.
Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens (1x score multiplier)
Jackson got off to an alarmingly slow start in the first half, going 8-of-11 passing for 107 yards with no touchdowns. It was the second half where he absolutely took off. In the second half and overtime, Jackson went 29-of-32 for 335 passing yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Finishing with 41.88 fantasy points, the fact that Jackson didn’t have a multiplier didn’t matter, given how dominant his performance was. You won’t find a tournament-winning lineup on SuperDraft from this slate that doesn’t feature Jackson.
Marquise Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens (1.3x)
A direct beneficiary of Jackson’s ceiling game, Brown had a dominant performance Monday, marking the fourth game in five weeks where he’s scored at least one touchdown. He finished with season highs in catches (9), yards (125), and touchdowns (2), while tying his season-high mark in targets (10). On the back of all of this, he finished with 29 fantasy points before his multiplier, ending with 37.7 points when factoring in his 30% score multiplier.
Carson Wentz, QB, Indianapolis Colts (1.3x)
While there was a bunch of skepticism surrounding Wentz (and rightfully so) coming into this game, he did everything he could to put the Colts in a position to win. He had his best game of the young season, posting 402 passing yards on 35 attempts while tossing a pair of touchdowns without an interception. He did log a fumble, but that’s an overall moot point given how effective he was otherwise.
With his 30% multiplier, he finished with 29.35 fantasy points. While not a game-breaking performance, it was certainly one that found itself in a handful of winning lineups.
1. Lamar Jackson (62.82 champion points)
2. Marquise Brown (59.45)
3. Jonathan Taylor (68.4)
4. Carson Wentz (44.03)
5. Mark Andrews (97.74)
