May 4, 2019; East Rutherford, NJ, USA; New York Giants quarterback draft pick Daniel Jones (8) looks to pass during a drill during rookie minicamp at Quest Diagnostics Training Center.

Saints vs. Raiders on Monday Night Football caps off Week 2 of the NFL schedule. The daily fantasy sports sites DraftKings and FanDuel are going big, with FanDuel hosting a Monday Million and DraftKings running a Monday Night Showdown. Both NFL DFS tournaments feature seven-figure prize pools, so there's plenty at stake when finalizing your NFL DFS strategy. Drew Brees, Derek Carr, Josh Jacobs, and Alvin Kamara are among the most expensive options in the NFL DFS player pool, while Saints receiver Michael Thomas will sit out with an ankle injury.

The Saints vs. Raiders DFS player pool is extremely deep, making for plenty of tough decisions. Be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, optimal player pool, picks, and top stacks from SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million, before you make your Monday Night Football DFS picks for Saints vs. Raiders.

McClure crushed his NFL DFS picks in 2019, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments.

He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who followed him saw some huge returns.

In his Week 1 Sunday NFL DFS player pool, McClure was all over Cam Newton as one of his top quarterbacks. The result: Newton, who was just $6,100 on DraftKings, found the end zone twice on the ground and returned over 4x value. Anybody who put him in their NFL DFS lineups was well on the way to a profitable day. 

Now, he has turned his attention to the Saints vs. Raiders DFS player pool and locked in his top daily fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top Saints vs. Raiders NFL DFS picks

One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Monday Night Football is Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. The second-year back toted the ball 25 times for 93 yards and three touchdowns against the Panthers in Week 1. Jacobs also added four receptions for 46 yards to total almost 36 points on DraftKings. 

The Raiders utilizing Jacobs in their passing game is further proof that he is an every-down weapon. The Raiders face a Saints defense that was stout against the run in Week 1, but McClure is high on Jacobs' newfound versatility.

Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Saints running back Alvin Kamara. The do-it-all veteran was bottled up on the ground last week by the Buccaneers from a yardage perspective, totaling just 16 on 12 carries. However, he scored a rushing touchdown against Tampa Bay and also caught five passes for 51 yards and another score.

The Saints love to work Kamara all over the field, and he should find plenty of opportunity against the Raiders. Las Vegas' defense was gashed for 134 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns by Carolina's Christian McCaffrey in its opener.

How to set Saints vs. Raiders NFL DFS lineups
