Top NFL DFS picks for Bengals vs. Bills on MNF
One of Kaylor’s favorite DFS picks for the Buffalo vs. Cincinnati MNF game is Bengals wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase. The 22-year-old wideout has quickly established himself as one of the most dynamic playmakers in the NFL, and will likely go over 1,000 yards for the season on Monday night. Chase enters Week 17 with 79 catches for 960 yards and eight touchdowns, despite missing four games with a hip injury. Buffalo has a talented secondary, but with Higgins on the other side, Kaylor is expecting Chase to see plenty of single coverage on MNF.
“There is some rain in the MNF weather forecast, but I am still expecting this matchup to be a high-scoring affair. Both sides are full of offensive playmakers and can light up the scoreboard seemingly at will. For Cincinnati, I am projecting them to lean more heavily on their passing attack on Monday night, and All-Pro wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase should be one of the highest-scoring DFS players on this Showdown slate. Chase missed some time earlier this season, but has still managed to haul in 79 passes for 960 yards and eight touchdowns. For MNF, I have him projected to finish with 7+ receptions for over 100 yards and a touchdown,” Kaylor told SportsLine. You can see the rest of Kaylor’s NFL DFS picks here.
