Fantasy football is more than just the weekly head-to-head games we’ve all grown to love. On Underdog, fantasy managers can put their player-projection skills to the test by predicting player stat lines. Here are my top Underdog plays for the Monday Night Football Pick ’em contest between the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks.

Top Underdog Pick’ems for Monday Night Football
Underdog Pick’ems allows fantasy managers to predict stat lines and fantasy-point totals for almost all fantasy-relevant players. You can make two picks that pay out 3x even money or add more selections to your entry for higher payouts.
The levels are 3x, 6x, 10x, and 20x, progressing with each additional pick ’em you add to your entry. Let’s take a look at this week’s Monday night Underdog Pick’ems.
Daniel Jones Higher Than 34.5 Rushing Yards
It has been a rough start to the season for the Giants, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Amidst the Giants’ struggles, Daniel Jones has still managed to display his rushing prowess in two out of three games.
Tonight’s game with the Seahawks could be pretty high-scoring. Jones should drop back to pass 35+ times. You have to anticipate at least a couple of designed runs, along with read options and tactical scrambles.
Jones has rushed for more than 40 yards in two of his first three games. I expect his mobility to be on full display as the Giants go all out in what is an early must-win game.
Darren Waller Lower Than 9.45 Fantasy Points
In three games, Darren Waller hasn’t come close to this number in two of them. He was able to surpass it in Week 2, but only barely, catching six passes for 76 yards.
The way I see it, Waller needs to find the end zone to reach 9.5 fantasy points. He will fail to score far more frequently than he scores. Until Waller proves that he can be a consistent producer, I am down to fade him.
Tyler Lockett Higher Than 50.5 Receiving Yards
Tyler Lockett was a dud in Week 1, smashed in Week 2, and then a dud again in Week 3. It seems as though the Seahawks make it a point not to make their star WR2 invisible two games in a row.
This game against the Giants could be sneaky high-scoring. Deebo Samuel destroyed them last week for 129 yards on six catches. Lockett is much closer to Samuel than D.K. Metcalf. I think we’ll see a big game from him on Monday night. Look for Lockett to hit this number by the end of the third quarter.
