The Packers and Lions face off on Monday evening, every one on the lookout for their first win of the season. Vegas sportsbooks opened the Lions as heavy 10.5-point underdogs with an over/below of 49. The Lions put forth a good effort in Week 1. Nonetheless, that is extra broadly seen as a possibility for the Packers to bounce again after being humiliated by the Saints final week. They’ll definitely need to rinse away any lingering aftertaste from final week’s shellacking by placing on an offensive present, which is strictly what these NFL DFS contests are on the lookout for. Our FanDuel single sport lineup has a slight Packers lean, however a pair Lions picks will key in our quest to money.
Earlier than we get into our lineup, here is a reminder of FanDuel’s scoring system for single-game contests: The purpose complete for the “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, however he would not price any further cash just like the “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. FanDuel’s default scoring is half-point PPR and four-point passing TDs , and there are no bonuses for 300-yard/100-yard video games like on DraftKings.

FanDuel Single Recreation DFS Picks: Lions vs. Packers
$60,000 price range, want not less than one participant from every workforce
MVP (1.5x factors): QB Jared Goff, Lions ($14,500)
We’re attempting to place ourselves to benefit from low possession and excessive scoring potential. It gained’t take a miracle for Goff to outscore Aaron Rodgers — even in a dropping effort — particularly when you think about the working sport the Packers boast. The Lions could not win a lot this season, however don’t be shocked in the event that they’re extra productive offensively than most of the people anticipated all through the offseason. Simply have a look at Goff’s garbage-time aided numbers final week.
MORE MNF: D’Andre Swift injury update
FLEX: WR Davante Adams, Packers ($15,000)
We don’t have Rodgers on this lineup, however we’re nonetheless going to corral an enormous piece of their offense. That begins with Rodgers’ high goal within the passing sport. The Lions will probably be with out beginning cornerback Jeff Okudah (Achilles’) which solely makes issues simpler for Adams on paper.
MORE MNF DFS: DraftKings Showdown lineup
FLEX: RB Aaron Jones, Packers ($12,500)
A risk on the bottom and thru the air, Jones figures to be busy on Monday evening. He’s eclipsed 20-plus FD factors 9 occasions since 2019 and is a robust candidate to take action as soon as once more on this matchup.
FLEX: TE T.J. Hockenson, Lions ($11,000)
If final week is any indication — and we predict it’s — Hockenson will successfully function the Lions’ WR1. The third-year tight finish garnered 10 targets and completed with an 8-97-1 line. The Saints discovered some success focusing on their tight ends towards Inexperienced Bay final week, and we count on Goff and Co. to observe swimsuit.
FLEX: RB AJ Dillon, Packers ($7,000)
There’s a very good probability we glance again on the 2021 season and understand Dillon was extra sidekick than backup. In spite of everything, head coach Matt LaFleur has demonstrated a willingness to offer two backs a fantasy-friendly workload each in Inexperienced Bay and Tennessee. If the sport performs out as a convincing Packers victory, Dillon ought to get sufficient work to ship an impactful fantasy efficiency.
