The Week 15 NFL DFS schedule concludes with an NFC South battle between the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football at 8:15 p.m. ET. New Orleans has already clinched the division and a playoff spot, but postseason seeding is still on the line. Carolina, meanwhile, is battling for the final NFC wild-card spot, so you can expect both offenses to be in full gear for this prime-time matchup.
NFL DFS players have plenty to look forward to, as DraftKings is hosting a $1M Monday Night Showdown, while FanDuel has a $555K Monday Night Special. Before you lock in any lineups for tournaments or cash games, you’ll want to see the optimal Monday Night Football DFS lineups from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

McClure is rolling through the 2018 season thanks to some spot-on picks. In Week 1, his optimal NFL DFS lineups finished in the top 3 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and the top 1 percent of tournaments on FanDuel. In Week 4, he finished in the top 2 percent on DraftKings and top 6 percent on FanDuel. In Week 5, his lineups cashed with ease on both sites. In Week 8, his followers saw massive returns, with his DraftKings lineup finishing in the top 1 percent of all tournaments, while his Week 9 lineup cashed with ease on FanDuel. He cashed yet again on both sites in Week 10, and then his optimal lineup on FanDuel returned almost 3x in Weeks 11, 12 and 13. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Sunday night’s single-game slate featuring Saints vs. Panthers, we can tell you McClure is banking on Carolina running back Christian McCaffrey.
One of the most versatile and explosive backs in the league, McCaffrey has piled up huge numbers this season, and his pace has only accelerated in recent weeks. In his last three games alone, he’s piled up 43 carries for 294 yards and three touchdowns to go along with 26 catches for 205 yards and two additional scores.
His prowess as a receiver should serve him well against the Saints, a defense ranked first in the league against the run. That means the Panthers will be looking to get McCaffrey out of the backfield, and with 86 catches this season, he’s a safe bet to return plenty of value as the Panthers look to stay alive in the NFL playoff picture.
Part of McClure’s Monday Night Football NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Panthers tight end Ian Thomas.
The rookie out of Indiana has been a stud filling in for the injured Greg Olsen, recording 14 catches for 123 yards over the last two weeks. And even though it’s a limited sample size, Thomas is out-pacing what Olsen produced this year in terms of catches and yards per game.
The Saints gave up two touchdowns to Buccaneers tight end Cameron Brate in their last game, so confidently lock in Thomas as an NFL DFS value pick and look for him to exceed expectations on Monday Night Football.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Monday Night Football because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
