The Week 8 NFL schedule comes to a close with a Monday Night Football matchup featuring Jacoby Brissett and the Cleveland Browns hosting Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland. The Bengals’ offense will have a different look on MNF with star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase sidelined for four to six weeks with a hip injury, while the Browns are out to snap a four-game losing streak. Cleveland running back Nick Chubb has his sights set on reclaiming his spot as the NFL‘s leader in rushing yards. With Chase out, should Cincinnati running back Joe Mixon increase in value in your MNF NFL DFS strategy? Or would it make more sense to build your NFL DFS lineups and MNF NFL DFS stacks around a star quarterback, wide receiver, tight end, or D/ST? Amari Cooper, David Njoku, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Burrow all project to be impact classic and showdown NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football.

Top NFL DFS picks for Bengals vs. Browns on MNF
One player Kaylor will be building his NFL DFS Showdown rosters around for the Browns vs. Bengals Monday Night Football contest is Browns running back Nick Chubb. The 26-year-old is having another All-Pro caliber season and will regain the lead in the race for the NFL rushing yards title with 40 yards on Monday Night Football. The Bengals have struggled against the run, allowing 119.0 rush yards per game in 2022. Kaylor is expecting the Browns to run the bulk of their offense through Chubb, which should yield another elite DFS performance from the former Georgia Bulldog on MNF.
“Nick Chubb is having another fantastic year for the Browns, and I am expecting Cleveland to continue leaning heavily on the former Georgia Bulldog on Monday. The Bengals are allowing 119 rushing yards per game, and Chubb is arguably the most complete running back in the NFL today. I’m expecting Chubb to end up with well over 20 touches and 100 all-purpose yards with at least one trip to the end zone on MNF,” Kaylor told SportsLine.
