Monkey Knife Fight is one of the fastest-growing daily fantasy sites and offers a unique product that is a lot of fun. There are no salary caps and you do not have to compete against DFS pros. Instead, you simply find the combination of player props you are most confident in and pick more or less . Since each combination (two or more players) are playing in the same game, we can use correlation to our advantage. For example, if we know that one starting quarterback throws for more yards than projected, the opposing quarterback is more likely to throw for more yards also.
In this weekly article, we will count down the five best props of the week, saving the best for last.
Looking back at last week
Last Week: -1 unit
Overall Season (+28 units)
We came out slightly behind last week but are still making a hefty profit for the season and looking for another one of those big weeks in Week 15.
- Our Bills stack came through with ease. Josh Allen had more fantasy points than Ben Roethlisberger and Stefon Diggs easily outscored Diontae Johnson
- Our long shot Pats-Rams five-player prop didn’t come through. Too much Cam Akers for any of the passing overs to hit.
- Mitchell Trubisky outplayed Deshaun Watson. Did not see that one coming.
- We only hit half of our Cowboys-Bengals passing over. Andy Dalton did not have to throw much in this one.
- We missed winning our Panthers stack prop by a few yards. Robby Anderson easily outpaced Jerry Jeudy and Teddy Bridgewater threw for more yards than Drew Lock but not enough more to cover the 11.5 spread.
Number 5: Rookie RB Emerging #1
- This is a positive correlation play. If Taylor has a big game, Cooks and the Texans passing game will probably be busy trying to catch up.
- Jonathan Taylor is finally rounding into form. Over the last three weeks, he has rushed for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Taylor has also been consistently involved as a pass-catcher, averaging 3.0 receptions for 27.7 yards per game.
- Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni has said he will continue with the hot hand approach, saying of Taylor: “Confidence is a crazy thing, and momentum and confidence is a great thing to have. He’s got that and he’s playing really good football right now.”
- No team has allowed more PPR points to opposing running backs than the Texans.
- The Colts faced this same defense two weeks ago and their backfield combined for 38.5 fantasy points.
- An already undermanned Houston defensive line lost big defensive tackle Brandon Dunn to a season-ending injury last week.
- Brandin Cooks is back and practicing after missing last week’s game with a sore neck.
- Houston’s wide receivers combined for 18 catches and 307 yards against Indianapolis two weeks ago.
- Cooks saw eight targets in his first game without Will Fuller V and should see a lot of targets the rest of the way as Houston’s clear lead wide receiver.
