Drake's Takes - MNF Quick Hits

Between work and Xmas errands your old pal is running on fumes today. That doesn't mean the props stop though! I figured I'd switch it up and give you a quick and dirty look at all my prop plays on the Monday slate.

Michael Pittman Jr > Diontae Johnson (+3.5 bonus)

I have zero faith in Johnson doing anything besides wind sprints tonight. The Colts enter Week 12 allowing the fewest points to opposing wide receivers.

Johnson has topped 10 PPR points just once since Week 5. Give me Pittman and his consistently high target share for the win.

George Pickens (+0.5 bonus) > Parris Campbell

Pickens has assumed the alpha role in the Pittsburgh passing game. Now that comes with the caveat that there is very little volume to speak of. He's only caught seven passes over the last two weeks but he's scored over 14 PPR points each week. He's a touchdown waiting to happen. Now I love Campbell. He's very solid now that Matt Ryan is under center again. I just can't get over Pickens's explosiveness. He's one play away from winning the prop anytime he steps on the field.

Pat Freiermuth > Alec Pierce (+2 bonus)

This is a smash play. Freiermuth faces a Colts defense that ranks dead last versus the tight end. He's ascended to the secondary pass catcher role in the offense of late after his eight-catch performance a week ago. Pierce flashed weeks ago but he's no longer a featured player. He hasn't caught more than three passes since Week 5. Put an extra $10 on the Steelers' tight end.

Kenny Pickett > Matt Ryan

This isn't exactly Mahomes against Allen but hey we gotta pick someone. Pickett gets the nod because he adds a little something with his legs. He's rushed for over 35 yards in two of his last three contests. I also think he's got a chance to throw multiple touchdowns as the Steelers could play from behind. I like Indy to control the game with their rushing attack and force Pickett to have to throw more than Ryan in this one.
