Monday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 11 Buccaneers-Rams Showdown tournaments

Buccaneers vs. Rams is a Monday Night Football matchup with tons of offensive firepower, and that means making a DraftKings Showdown lineup is a fun way to close out Week 11. But the important thing to remember here is that both Tampa Bay and Los Angeles have been among the NFL’s best at stopping both the run and the pass. There might not be as many points in this game as you’d expect.

It’s not worth us betting on using either D/ST in this Showdown, though, so we’ve just tried to find the best value in this game while mostly avoiding the running games. That means we have both quarterbacks in Tom Brady and Jared Goff, while Antonio Brown captains our lineup.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Buccaneers vs. Rams

Captain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): WR Antonio Brown, Buccaneers ($11,700)

Brown looked up to speed in his second game with Tampa Bay, getting eight targets and catching seven of them. As long as Brown is on the field, he has potential to be the best receiver in DK’s PPR scoring despite entering this week as just Tampa’s third-highest priced pass-catcher. We’ll take advantage of that discount in our captain spot.

FLEX: QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers ($11,000)

In a matchup of two strong defenses, we’ve made the call to go both quarterbacks despite Brady being easier to trust than Jared Goff. Brady has seen a lot of fluctuation in his fantasy output this year, but with all his passing-game weapons, he’ll probably get plenty of opportunities to put up points.

FLEX: QB Jared Goff, Rams ($9,800)

We didn’t want to touch Los Angeles’ running game for two reasons: Tampa Bay stifles the run, and L.A. went with a true running-back-by-committee in Week 10. That means we’ll take Goff and one of his receivers. If you wanted to be different, you could play Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods without Goff and trust they get most of his yardage.

FLEX: WR Cooper Kupp, Rams ($9,200)

The question of Kupp vs. Woods is always a tricky one. For better or worse, Kupp presents more upside, and in a game that might have fewer big plays than many expect, we’ll take the chance that Kupp can get one of those home run-like moments.

FLEX: RB Leonard Fournette, Buccaneers ($4,400)

Ronald Jones is coming off a big game that could see his ownership rise even as his price does. We’ll zag while others are zigging. Fournette could prove vital if Tampa Bay finds tough sledding on the ground since he’s the preferred passing-game back here, which could pay off in DK’s PPR scoring.

FLEX: K Matthew Gay, Rams ($3,600)

The Buccaneers and Rams play in Week 11 on Monday Night Football. If you're putting together a DraftKings Showdown lineup, we have the picks, advice and sleepers to help in your NFL DFS tournaments.

NFL DFS for Rams vs. Buccaneers: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks, stacks

SportsLine’s Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2M in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven’t played often under the Monday Night Football lights, but star quarterback Tom Brady has. The future Hall of Famer owns a sparkling 18-7 record on Monday Night Football and now faces the visiting Los Angeles Rams to close out the Week 11 NFL schedule. The Buccaneers are just 12-11 on Monday nights since their inception in 1979, but can you trust Brady, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, and company as part of your NFL DFS picks?

Should you go with Brady as the anchor of your NFL DFS strategy for Monday Night Football, and if so, which receivers should be part of your NFL DFS stacks? Before locking down any daily Fantasy football picks on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the top daily Fantasy football picks, NFL DFS advice and strategy from SportsLine’s Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.

McClure crushed his NFL DFS picks in 2019, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments. He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who followed him saw some huge returns.

In Week 10, McClure had Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers in his player pool for both FanDuel and DraftKings: The result: Meyers caught five of seven targets for 59 yards while also throwing a 24-yard touchdown, returning almost 30 Fantasy points on both sites. Anybody who had him in their daily Fantasy football lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

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

Top NFL DFS picks for Rams vs. Buccaneers

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Rams quarterback Jared Goff. The fifth-year pro from Cal went 27-of-37 for 302 yards last week to help beat Seattle, the first time since Week 1 Goff did not throw a TD pass. Goff is 11th in the NFL this season with 2,447 passing yards and has thrown 13 touchdowns.

Goff has three games this season of over 23 points on DraftKings and has a full complement of offensive weapons at his disposal against a stout Buccaneers defense. Lock him into your NFL DFS lineups with confidence.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Rams wide receiver Josh Reynolds. The four-year pro from Texas A&M caught eight passes for 94 yards last week in a victory over the Seahawks. Reynolds has 30 receptions this season for 416 yards and two touchdowns.

Reynolds led the Rams in receptions, targets, and yards against Seattle, and put together more receiving yards than Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp combined. Having already surpassed his career-highs in receptions and receiving yards, Reynolds will be tested by a Buccaneers pass defense that allows 223.7 air yards per game.

However, McClure is high on the chemistry Reynolds showed with quarterback Jared Goff last week, and recommends the receiver in your NFL DFS lineups.
