Drake's Takes - Monday Night Preview
Alright, it's Monday Night and we’ve got a huge NFC East matchup, let’s win some prop bets, on TopProp Fantasy Sports.
So far I’m 8-2 on the season. Let’s keep the train rolling with two more wins tonight.
Remember, at TopProp, we care about who scores more fantasy points. Sometimes we give bonus points to even out the matchup as we see with the quarterbacks this week.
Daniel Jones is at home vs Cooper Rush who is getting 2.5 bonus points. Most folks might say, Jones, is a slam dunk. Who is this Rush guy anyways?
Well, he’s the guy who is going to win this prop bet, that’s who.
Last week Rush stepped in for Dak Prescott and delivered a respectable 235 yards passing, which was more than Daniel Jones threw for.
This week the winner of this prop will be the QB who simply throws that extra touchdown pass. Jones’ rushing upside, (25 and 21) yards the past two weeks is negated by Rush’s bonus points.
Therefore, it’s all about the arms.
I have zero faith in Daniel Jones doing just about anything. Looking at his receiving group tonight, I’m even more confident in my call.
Cooper Rush throws for 250 yards and two touchdowns en route to putting money in your pocket.
TopProp Play: Cooper Rush (+2.5) > Daniel Jones
Our second matchup pits Saquon Barkley against Ezekiel Elliott and his six bonus points!
You might be wondering how Zeke can lose with a six-point head start? Well…
Dallas is notorious for giving up on the run midway through contests. Elliott also is a complete nonfactor in their passing game. He has -7 yards receiving on the season. On my podcast, The “Fantasy Football Hustle” I asked Matt Waldman what he sees on film and he confessed that Zeke isn’t cooked and looks as spry as ever.
Can that help him get over 6 fantasy points tonight? It would be a first for the Dallas superstar this season.
Barkley is Barkley. He’s going to break a 60-yard run after a dozen 3-yard gains. The difference here is he’s being used as a receiver. His 9 receptions on the season give me hope that in our .5 PPR set up he can catch enough balls to overcome Zeke’s head start.
With Barkley touching the ball 20+ times I’m buying him as my prop winner in this matchup.
