  • Sean Koerner calculates the probability of key Cowboys and Giants players scoring enough points to win your Week 9 fantasy football matchups.

Monday Night Football can make or break your weekly fantasy matchup. Sweating player(s) you and/or your opponent have makes it a high leverage situation.

So what’re your chances for a Monday night miracle win?

I simulated tonight’s matchup 10,000 times to calculate the probability of key players hitting certain point thresholds. So, for example: Need 28 points from Saquon Barkley? He has a 10.70% chance of pulling out a MNF miracle for you.

Here are the players I’ll touch on:

  • Cowboys: Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Randall Cobb, Jason Witten
  • Giants: Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Golden Tate, Darius Slayton, Evan Engram

Now let’s dig into the full odds. (Note these are based on half PPR scoring.)
