Drake's Playoff Takes - MNF

We’ve got one more chance to win big for Super Wild Card Weekend. Tonight the Dallas Cowboys head to Tampa to battle Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.


This game is going to do a monster TV rating. You’ve got ‘America’s Team’ vs the GOAT. We don’t need to bet on this one to get excited, but damn it we will anyways.


TopProp Fantasy is all about head-to-head matchups where you simply decide who will score more half-PPR points. Easy right?


I’m going to start my favorite plays for Monday Night starting at wide receiver where I’m taking Chris Godwin and his three bonus points against CeeDee Lamb.


Lamb is great and obviously the top target for Dak Prescott, but c’mon here Godwin is going to catch 10 balls and score tonight. The Cowboys' secondary is a disaster of late. Receivers are running past Cowboys defenders like they are spectators at a high school track meet. Dallas has given up a whopping eight WR touchdowns since Week 15.



I think Tampa sells out to stop Lamb tonight and forces someone else to beat them. In Week 1 Lamb only caught two balls for 29 yards. I don’t expect that to be the same result tonight. Lamb has posted 100 yards in three of his last four contests. He’s an elite talent.


I think this game is won in the air and Tom Brady’s favorite target is going to see a massive workload. Excluding Week 18 when he didn’t play the entire game, Godwin has seen at least eight targets in all but one game since the Bucs' Week 11 bye. While touchdowns haven’t been plentiful for Godwin this season, I’m calling one for him tonight.

The three bonus points give me supreme confidence in tonight’s pick.


Drake’s Take: Chris Godwin (+3 bonus) > CeeDee Lamb


There are so many great contests tonight on TopProp that I wanted to give you my picks on every single one (bonuses noted).


Leonard Fournette > Ezekiel Elliott (+0.5)

Tony Pollard > Rachaad White (+7.5)

Mike Evans > Michael Gallup (+6.5)

Dalton Schultz > Cade Otton (+3)

Julio Jones > TY Hilton (1.5)

Brett Maher > Ryan Succop (+1)

Tom Brady (+2) > Dak Prescott
