10/8 DFS Winner: Matt Breida
Matt Breida had a solid game on Monday Night against the Cleveland Browns on limited touches. Breida finished with 11 rushes for 114 yards and a touchdown. As a receiver, he had three catches for 15 and an additional touchdown.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Breida seems to have these types of games and then also have duds the next week. A little more consistency would be great to have, but when he is on, he is one of the best value running backs in the NFL. Their next game is against the Los Angeles Rams and has the ability to have a similar game to last night.
10/8 DFS Winner: San Francisco 49ers Defense
As shown in the snippet above by Daniel Wehr in his Monday Night Showdown Guide, the San Francisco 49ers played stellar defense against the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football. The 49ers allowed just a field goal while forcing four turnovers (two fumble recoveries and two interceptions). They shut down the passing game completely and allowed just 180 yards of total offense.
Outlook for the rest of the season: This San Francisco team is the real deal as they are clicking on all cylinders. The team is giving up the second-fewest yards per game through five weeks. Their defensive line is forcing pressure while the defensive backs are locking down opposing skill position players. This defense is a huge reason why they remain the only undefeated team in the NFL.
10/8 DFS Winner: Kevin Kiermaier
Available for all premium members, here is a snippet of the lowest-salary outfielders in the Divisional Series from the Hitter Projection Model. Kiermaier had a good day at the plate in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Houston Astros. With the team facing elimination, Kiermaier went 1-for-4 with a go-ahead three-run homer off of Zack Greinke. Kiermaier isn’t known for the bat and this forced the Astros to throw Justin Verlander today on short rest.
10/8 DFS Winner: Ryan Zimmerman
Another screenshot from our Hitter Projection Model, this time showcasing some hitters from the Dodgers-Nationals NLDS. Ryan Zimmerman had a solid performance in Game 4, going 2-for-4 with a three-run homer of his own. Having a player of Zimmerman’s caliber towards the bottom of the lineup is helping the Nationals team. Zimmerman was a key factor of why the Dodgers and Nationals will play a loser-goes-home Game 5 on Wednesday night.
