Here we go with the Single Game NFL DFS slate for Monday Night Football of Week 10. Today’s matchup is between the Chiefs and Raiders with Kansas City checking in as a 2.5 point road favorite. The over/under currently rests at 51.5 total points. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 ET.

We’ll highlight the top picks and best bargains to assemble a cash-inducing lineup. On top of that, the “additional notes” section will feature several tournament selections while adding context to the rest of this slate.

We will be producing these articles for Thursday, Sunday, and Monday Night Football matchups, so be sure to bookmark the NBC Sports EDGE DFS Page for those occasions - not to mention all the other fantastic daily fantasy content.

TOP PICKS

Derek Carr - QB - Las Vegas (DK: $10,600 / FD: $15,500 / Yahoo: $33)

Carr is averaging a steady 19 fantasy points per contest this season, and he has crossed the 20 FP plateau in two of his last three. I’m considering that his baseline in this matchup against Kansas City, and there’s certainly room for upside. Game flow should have the Raiders passing tonight, and the matchup looks great against a Chiefs’ defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to QBs this season. Go ahead and target Carr with confidence. He’s a borderline captain this evening.

Patrick Mahomes - QB - Kansas City (DK: $12,400 / FD: $17,000 / Yahoo: $36)

Mahomes is the other potential captain you want to consider in cash games. Even though this has been a down season for the former MVP, he’s still averaging 21 fantasy points per game. Of course, there’s always a chance he’ll break out with his 2019-2020 form at any moment. While Mahomes has looked extremely shaky over the past three weeks, I still believe he’s a fine top pick in this single-game slate.

BEST BARGAINS

Kenyan Drake - RB - Las Vegas (DK: $4,400 / FD: $10,000 / Yahoo: $16)

Drake makes for an interesting bargain tonight, especially for $4,400 on DraftKings. He’s sharing the backfield with Josh Jacobs, but Drake usually sees more pass-catching responsibilities. That has enabled him to average 16+ fantasy points over his last three games. As an added boost, the Chiefs rank 27th in pass DVOA to running backs this season.

Daniel Carlson - K - Las Vegas (DK: $3,800 / FD: $9,000 / Yahoo: N/A)

You can realistically take either kicker as a nice value pick on DraftKings. Carlson has notched double-digit fantasy points in two of his last three games, which says much more than the similarly-priced players over on DK.

TOURNAMENT LOOKS

Bryan Edwards - WR - Las Vegas (DK: $5,400 / FD: $8,500 / Yahoo: $10)

Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow are the top pass catchers for Las Vegas. Outside of that is a huge question mark. Edwards is conceivably next in line, and he’s a red-zone threat with an outside chance of scoring a touchdown tonight. Edwards is especially cheap on FanDuel and Yahoo, but he’s playable on all sites tonight as a tournament pick or bargain filler.

Zay Jones - WR - Las Vegas (DK: $600 / FD: $6,500 / Yahoo: $10)

Jones is a dirt-cheap filler on DraftKings to help you stack the rest of your lineup. He’ll probably only see two or three targets tonight, so you are hoping he can connect on a couple of those for meaningful gains. He did see four targets last week, which is decent volume for a guy only priced at $600 on DK.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

Travis Kelce (TE - KC) is the top stacking extension of Mahomes tonight. In fact, you could argue Kelce as a captain pick in tournaments. The Raiders have allowed the third-most fantasy points to tight ends this season. Tyreek Hill (WR - KC) is more of a tournament pick with Kelce serving as the better DFS play of the two. Mecole Hardman (WR - KC) is another tournament pick, but his depth of target doesn’t speak well for upside. Deep GPPs only. Byron Pringle (WR - KC) is the cheaper tournament spin who you are hoping can come through with a big play.

Darrell Williams (RB - KC) is in cash game consideration tonight. You can realistically work him in alongside Mahomes, Kelce, and Carr by taking some of the bargains listed above.

Darren Waller (TE - LVR) is expensive, but he’s the top target in this Raiders' offense. Hunter Renfrow (WR - LVR) isn’t far behind, but his salary has risen in recent weeks, and I’m prioritizing the other picks listed in this article.

Josh Jacobs (RB - LVR) should not be forgotten, but I’m saying he’s more of a tournament pick than cash staple tonight. Jacobs is touchdown-dependent while sharing the backfield with Drake. It’s hard to bank on game flow agreeing with Jacobs as well.
