The New York Giants host the Seattle Seahawks at MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football to close out the NFL Week 4 schedule. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET. New York running back Saquon Barkley, the highest-priced option in the NFL DFS player pool, is listed as doubtful with an ankle injury. With Barkley unlikely to play, quarterbacks Geno Smith and Daniel Jones are likely to be among the most popular NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football. Should you target Smith or Jones in your NFL DFS strategy? Or would it make more sense to build your lineups around PPR stalwarts like Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, and Darren Waller.

Top NFL DFS picks for Seahawks vs. Giants on MNF
One of Kaylor’s top NFL DFS picks for Monday night is Seattle running back Kenneth Walker III. The former Michigan State standout burst onto the NFL scene as a rookie in 2022, rushing for 1,050 yards and nine touchdowns. Walker has gotten off to a strong start in 2023, producing four touchdowns and 200 total yards of offense over the last two weeks. Kaylor is expecting another highly productive night for Walker against the Giants on Monday Night Football.
“Kenneth Walker III is one of the top young running backs in the league, and he will be facing a Giants defense that is statistically one of the worst defenses in the NFL against the run. Walker averages 4.3 yards per carry, and New York allows 138 rushing yards per game. I expect those numbers to carry over and lead to a highly productive game for Walker on Monday night,” Kaylor told SportsLine.
Part of Kaylor’s MNF DFS strategy also includes rostering Giants quarterback Daniel Jones. The former first-round pick out of Duke has gotten off to a rocky start to the 2023 season, but was one of the most productive fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL in 2022. Jones’ dual-threat ability adds another avenue to fantasy scoring and Kaylor expects that to be a factor on MNF.
“Daniel Jones has dual-threat ability, which is huge from a DFS perspective. With Saquon Barkley likely sidelined, the Giants will have no choice but to lean heavily on Jones on Monday night. I expect Jones to be the highest-scoring fantasy player on the New York side,” Kaylor said. You can see the rest of Kaylor’s NFL DFS picks here.
