Sometimes it seems like the sky is perpetually falling for the New York Jets, who could be without 2021 first-round quarterback Zach Wilson for the start of the regular season after he had surgery to repair a meniscus injury last week. Joe Flacco could be the starting QB in Week 1, but in last week’s win against Philadelphia, Chris Streveler finished the game with 62 passing yards and two touchdowns. NFL DFS players now have plenty of decisions to make when it comes to picking the right passers for their NFL DFS lineups in the Jets’ Monday night matchup with Atlanta.
Last week, the Jets held the Eagles to just 88 rushing yards, but they may have a tough time repeating that against Falcons rookie running back Tyler Allgeier. The BYU product could be a strong option in the NFL DFS player pool after he turned his three carries into 25 yards in last week’s win over Detroit.

Top NFL DFS picks for Monday
For Falcons vs. Jets on Monday, where every player on DraftKings is priced at $11,400 and every player on FanDuel is $12,000, one of White’s top picks is Jets quarterback Mike White. Even though Flacco is in line to be the starter, the team is not likely to put their 37-year-old QB in harm’s way for long, if at all. That means the majority of the passing volume could come from White and third-year backup Chris Streveler.
White provided some fireworks last season, most notably in Week 8 against the Bengals, when he threw for 405 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in an improbable win. He handled the majority of the passing work last week against the Eagles after Wilson’s injury, and went 10-for-20 for 98 yards. He didn’t come away with any touchdowns or turnovers last week, but should be sharper on Monday with more preparation sans Wilson and against a more inexperienced secondary than last week.
White’s NFL DFS strategy also involves rostering Falcons running back Qadree Ollison, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Ollison had the most rushing yards by a Falcons running back last week against Detroit, finishing with 33 on five carries. He finished with more rushing attempts than rookie Tyler Allgeier, who had just three carries in the win.
Ollison should have a spot on the roster this season, but is in the last year of his contract with the Falcons. He only had 21 carries in the regular season last year, but turned them into 105 yards with a touchdown. See who else to include on your rosters here.
