Two NFL teams in the thick of a playoff push square off on Monday Night Football as the Baltimore Ravens travel to the Bayou to take on the New Orleans Saints. The Ravens head into this affair banged up yet again.
WR Rashod Bateman is out for the foreseeable future with a lisfranc injury, and TE Mark Andrews will miss this one, to heal up following the bye week. The Saints will be without a contributor, as Michael Thomas will be out for the remainder of the season.
Today we look at the best DFS plays from this intriguing match-up.
Best NFL quarterback picks
Cash Games: Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens (DraftKings $18.6K, FanDuel $17K)
With a lack of pass-catchers and missing their top two back AGAIN this season, the pressure will be solely on the shoulders of QB Lamar Jackson. Look for Lamar to take off on the ground more often against an aggressive Saints defense.
Tournaments: Andy Dalton, QB, New Orleans Saints (Draftkings $15.3K, FanDuel $15K)
Andy Dalton has played surprisingly well in 2023. The Saints wish to keep pace with the division-leading Buccaneers and will need Dalton to play well to accomplish their goal.
Best NFL running back picks
Cash Games: Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints (DraftKings $17.1K, FanDuel $15.5K)
Look for the Saints to get Alvin Kamara involved early and often as a runner and a receiver out of the backfield.
Tournament: Kenyan Drake, RB, Baltimore Ravens (DraftKings $10.8K, FanDuel $9K)
The Ravens will be without the services of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards again in this one. The Ravens can't keep healthy bodies in their backfield. Kenyan Drake steps in once again to lead the charge.
Best NFL wide receivers and tight ends picks
Cash game: Chris Olave, WR, New Orleans Saints (DraftKings $12.9K, FanDuel $13K)
Chris Olave is the air yards king. The Saints utilize rookie Chris Olave as their top deep threat in 2022. Olave has a complete game and will be leaned on more now that Michael Thomas is officially on the shelf.
Tournament: Isaiah Likely, TE, Baltimore Ravens (DraftKings $8.7K, FanDuel $7.5K)
Without Mark Andrews, the Ravens will continue to throw the ball to the TE position. Rookie Isaiah Likely has made quite the early impression and will be leaned on heavily on Monday night.
