Monkey Knife Fight is one of the fastest-growing daily fantasy sites. It offers a fun and unique product. There are no salary caps and no need for lineup builders. 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) is playing in the same game, you can use correlation to your advantage. For example, if you assume 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.
5: Thursday Night Special
- Freiermuth has a 24.3% market share of targets, third-most amongst all tight ends. He is averaging 8.5 targets per game through two weeks.
- In Week 1, we recommended Freiermuth’s over here when facing the Bengals, a team who funnels targets to the middle of the field. His 75 yards more than doubled his projection. He faces a similar situation Thursday night against a Cleveland defense that is also stingy against outside wide receivers but softer over the middle.

- Peoples-Jones has had at least 38 receiving yards in 8 of 12 games (67%).
