Eric MacPherson



Tonight the Arizona Cardinals are hosting the Los Angeles Rams in the featured Monday Night Football matchup, and Yahoo is offering NFL DFS single-game contests.

The twist is that any position player can be rostered, and one is designated to receive a 1.5x multiplier on their Yahoo points. Using Awesemo’s expert NFL projections and rankings, these are the top Yahoo NFL picks for the Week 14 Monday Night Football game tonight.

Yahoo NFL Picks: Week 14 Monday Night Football


The SUPERSTAR position will get a 1.5x multiplier on their Yahoo points in the single-game format. Awesemo’s NFL DFS optimizer creates daily fantasy football cheat sheets. Check out who is popping in the Yahoo NFL DFS cheat sheet for the Week 14 Monday Night Football game.

Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams – $37

It almost feels like Cooper Kupp should be $40 given his productivity this season. The Cardinals have been solid against the pass, but this is the player who leads the league in targets, catches, yards per game, first downs and touchdowns receiving. This year he has shown an ability to work over any defense at all three levels as well as running anything on the route tree. Touchdowns are key, and he is going to need to find the end zone at least once to justify this lofty salary. The only minor concern is that his worst game of the season was back in Week 4 against Arizona where he had 13 targets but only five receptions and 64 yards. In every other outing he has logged at least 90 yards or a touchdown.

Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals – $37

Though Kyler Murray looked a little off on his throws, remember he missed a month with a high ankle sprain and the Chicago weather was pretty miserable. On a positive note, he ran for two touchdowns and now has five touchdowns rushing on the season. Los Angeles has a fierce pass rush, and they are good in coverage as well. Countering that, Arizona has all of their receivers back healthy, and tight end Zach Ertz ($19) is yet another capable pass catcher for the defense to worry about.

Murray is one of the leading options for SUPERSTAR on Yahoo, and Matt Savoca has an even more in-depth look at his outlook tonight from a holistic view across DraftKings and FanDuel in his Week 14 Monday Night Football Showdown Breakdown.

Yahoo NFL Core Picks

Sony Michel, Los Angeles Rams – $17

If Darrell Henderson Jr. ($22) remains out in the health and safety protocol as expected, Sony Michel should be viewed as a core option, even in a difficult matchup. Last week Michel had all but the final two carries of the game, along with four targets. Something approaching 20 combined opportunities is a reasonable expectation tonight, though his overall success will depend on finding the end zone.

Van Jefferson Jr., Los Angeles Rams – $18

Most gamers are likely to roll with Odell Beckham Jr. ($16), who is a little cheaper than Van Jefferson Jr. and comes with a far more impressive fantasy resume. Both are fine selections, though taking the less popular option is recommended for tournament leverage. Jefferson has a had a whole season to work with Matthew Stafford ($32), while Beckham has only been with Los Angeles for a month. In his last two games Beckham has 15 targets and seven receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in each game. Jefferson also has scored in each of the last two games, and he has 17 targets for nine receptions and 134 yards. Both can be used on the same roster, as they run different routes and coexist on the field nicely.

Kendall Blanton, Los Angeles Rams – $10

Now that Tyler Higbee is in the health and safety protocol, undrafted rookie Kendall Blanton ($10) is likely to start at tight end. Over the last three games he has played 13 snaps and saw three targets. Last week fourth-round rookie Brycen Hopkins ($10) saw his first action of the season with 14 snaps, though he is waiting for his first career target.
