WR: Jamison Crowder: (5,400) The Redskins have a high implied team total of 28.75 points and Crowder is in a perfect spot to have a big game on Monday night. Playing out of the slot, he will be matched up with Panthers CB Leonard Johnson who is the 7th worst rated CB in all of football this season with a low 41.9 PFF grade. This zone defense has allowed the 8th most DK points per game to WRs since Week 12 and rank 29th in DOVA of defending short passes.

Crowder should be QB Cousins favorite target against this secondary and I think he should catch at least five balls on Monday night. Crowder’s $5,200 price tag is fair, but he has a really high ceiling against this struggling Panther defense, especially in DraftKings full PPR scoring. There are so many great options in this Washington offense, but Crowder is my favorite play of the group on Monday night.

RB: Rob Kelley: (4,700) RB is by far the weakest position of this two game slate. Kelley is no doubt the best option and I don’t see how you make a lineup without him in it. As I mentioned above, The Redskins have an implied team total of 28.75 points and are seven point home favorites. Kelley’s fantasy value really depends on game flow and he should get plenty of touches with The Reskins expected to be ahead for most of this game.

The last time The Redskins were home favorites, Kelley rushed the ball 24 times for 137 yards and three TDs vs The Packers, scoring a ridiculous 34.7 DK points. Also he has actually been more active in the passing game the last few weeks catching two passes in two of his last three games. Kelley will likely see around 20 touches vs this Panthers defense that has given up an average of 23.6 DK points a game since Week 12. At $4,700 he is a tough player to fade in this two game slate.

WR: Sterling Sheppard: (4,600) This Eagles secondary has become a laughable unit and is a defense that needs to be attacked until further notice. Since Week 12 they are allowing a very high average of 46.15 DK points a game to WRs. Sheppard should be defended by Eagles slot CB Malcom Jenkins who was given up 0.46 fantasy points per route going into Week 14 and just allowed a TD to Kamar Aiken this past Sunday. Sheppard also had a decent game in Week 15 catching four of his five targets for 56 yards and a TD vs The Lions. (15.6 DK points)

WR Victor Cruz has become a non-factor in this offense and both Sheppard and Odell Beckham Jr. should have success vs this vulnerable Eagles D. OBJ is an obvious must play against this secondary, but I think Sheppard is also a great play in his own right at his cheap salary. Outside of OBJ it’s hard to tell where the ownership will go for WRs in this slate. Sheppard may come with a decently low ownership and is a great play at only $4,600.

Also Consider: Eli Manning, Ted Ginn Jr., Rashad Jennings, Jordan Reed (if he plays), Desean Jackson, Will Tye, Jonathan Stewart, Zach Ertz, Darren Sproles (if he is active), and Ryan Mathews (if Darren Sproles remains out).
