NFL DFS for Packers vs. Lions: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks for Monday Night Football

The Green Bay Packers gave one of the most surprising Week 1 performances, when they were completely shut down by the New Orleans Saints, 38-3. Aaron Rodgers and company likely can’t wait to put that game behind them at home on Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions. Rodgers has some of the highest scoring potential in Monday’s NFL DFS player pool and thrown 46 touchdowns against the Lions in his career.

TAMPA, FLORIDA – OCTOBER 04: Justin Herbert #10 of the Los Angeles Chargers looks to pass during the third quarter of a game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium on October 04, 2020 in Tampa, Florida.

Other Green Bay stars like running back Aaron Jones could be poised for a rebound from last week’s dreadful showing as well. Are there any NFL DFS sleepers on a Detroit side that rallied last week against San Francisco in the second half? Which NFL DFS stacks can you trust? Before locking in any NFL DFS picks for Lions vs. Packers on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

McClure is a predictive data engineer and pro DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action in every game, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.

On Thursday, McClure was extremely high on Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke, putting him near the top of his exposure rankings on both sites. The result: Heinicke had 336 passing yards and two touchdowns, returning well over 20 points on FanDuel and DraftKings. Anybody who had him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to Packers vs. Lions and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks for Packers vs. Lions

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Lions running back Jamaal Williams. He was one of the league’s best backup running backs and averaged 727 scrimmage yards and 4.5 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Seeking additional touches, Williams left one NFC North team for another this offseason, as he departed Green Bay to join Detroit.

Week 1 was a glimpse of how the Lions will use Williams, as he rushed for 54 yards and a score while catching eight passes for 56 yards. The eight catches tied a career-high and marked just the third time in Williams’ career that he had over 50 rushing and 50 receiving yards. He knows the Packers’ defensive tendencies as well as anyone, so he should be in line for a huge night against his former team.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Packers wide receiver Davante Adams, who had seven catches for 115 yards and a touchdown in his last game against Detroit. Green Bay’s offense as a whole is in a much better spot this week than it was last, and Adams should be one of the top beneficiaries. Last week against the Lions, San Francisco’s Deebo Samuel had nine catches for 189 yards and a touchdown.

Last season, Adams had more red zone targets than any other wide receiver in the NFL, and Detroit had the second-worst red zone defense. That continued last week, when Detroit allowed touchdowns on every red zone possession by the 49ers. The Saints had Green Bay’s number in Week 1, but Rodgers has a history of playing well after clunkers, and Adams should expect plenty of passes to be sent his way.

How to set NFL DFS lineups for Lions vs. Packers

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Monday Night Football. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
