Monday Night Monkey Knife Fight Picks: Week 2

Another Monday Night Football game offers another opportunity to win money on Monkey Knife Fight. Each week I will be here with two sets of Monkey Knife Fight picks for the prime time game.

This week we have picks on Aaron Rodgers, Jared Goff, D’Andre Swift and Aaron Jones for the Detroit Lions at the Green Bay Packers.

For those new to Monkey Knife Fight, it is a fun and easy way to play NFL DFS. Games like Rapid Fire and More or Less allow you to make quick picks and only compete against yourself. You can choose player props or fantasy points with each contest requiring you to pick 2 or more options much like a parlay. You can also add more picks for a chance at a bigger pay day!

As for the picks?

More or Less

More or less is an easy game where you simply pick either more or less for the stat listed. In this case, we will pick more or less on the passing yard totals for both Aaron Rodgers and Jared Goff. Much like a parlay, you need to predict both correctly to win.

Aaron Rodgers LESS than 295.5 Passing Yards

I will happily take the under on 295.5 passing yards in this spot for Aaron Rodgers. This pick has nothing to do with Aaron Rodgers’ talent or thinking he is washed. Instead this pick is based on how I expect this game to go. 

Green Bay is an 11.5 point favorite against Detroit. They come home after a shellacking a week ago against New Orleans. I expect this game to be out of hand early and allow the Packers to lean on their rushing attack.

The passing yardage totals posted by sportsbooks provides another clue to lean on the under here. FanDuel, DraftKings and others have his total set to 280 passing yards or less.

 Jared Goff LESS than 258.5 Passing Yards

Despite throwing for 338 passing yards a week ago, I will lean to the under on Jared Goff’s passing yard total. This game is expected to play out much like the Lions game a week ago against San Francisco. Unlike last week, Detroit will have to go on the road.

Green Bay will want to put their best foot forward after being embarrassed in Week 1. The 49ers injuries really depleted an already hampered secondary. I expect the Packers defense to play better down the stretch and keep Goff looking for more.

This line will be close but take Goff to stay slightly under this week.


For Rapidfire you need to pick both options correctly to win the contest. For this contest, we will pick who will have the most passing yards between Aaron Rodgers vs Jared Goff who gets an 37.5 yards. You also have to pick who will have more rushing yards between Aaron Jones and D’Andre Swift who gets an extra 32.5 yards.

Pick Jared Goff

Between Jared Goff and Aaron Rodgers, I will the road quarterback. I expect Aaron Rodgers to play fine here but with the Packers being a sizable favorite, I think the two QBs will have similar enough totals to make the almost 40 yards Goff is being spotted to be enough to sneak out a win.

Pick Aaron Jones

As for the running backs, I will back the Packers running back here. D’Andre Swift is coming into this game with a groin injury and is on the fence about even playing in this game. This is also a revenge spot for the former Packer Jamaal Williams who should see plenty of work. 

Aaron Jones should have a chance to feast in this spot after what Elijah Mitchell did a week ago. There is some concern that AJ Dillion gets work and sees volume down the stretch but Jones should have plenty opportunity to rack up the yardage to clear the 32.5 points Monkey Knife Fight is spotting Swift.

While this game is probably going to underwhelm from an entertainment standpoint, playing DFS on Monkey Knife Fight should spice things up plenty. Remember to use promo code Pigskin for 100% match deposit up to $100 plus the free $5 game.
