DraftKings offers player props for fantasy points scored, and I’ve historically had success with such bets in the past.
For the Week 10 Monday Night Football game between the Cowboys and Giants, there are two DraftKings point props that catch my eye, based on the research I’ve done with these resources at FantasyLabs.

For fantasy points props (I highlighted one in my Week 9 DraftKings prop piece), I am 1-0 (+0.89 units).
Odds as of Monday afternoon and via DraftKings, where Action Network users get a risk-free bet up to $200.
Giants RB Saquon Barkley DraftKings points
- Over 19.5: -118
- Under 19.5: -106
I’m pretty easily on the over.
In his 21 career games, Barkley has averaged 24.1 DraftKings points per game. At home, that number has bumped up to 24.5.
Not counting his injury-impacted Week 3, Barkley has gone over 19.5 in three of his four games this year.
As for the Cowboys, they’ve allowed a middle-of-the-road 25.8 DraftKings points per game to opposing backs, and Barkley should get almost of the backfield work for the Giants.
Plus, with his three-down skill set, Barkley should stay involved regardless of game script.
In the FantasyLabs Models, we have Barkley projected for 21.5 DraftKings points.
Pick: Over 19.5 (-118) [Bet now at DraftKings]
Giants TE Evan Engram DraftKings points
- Over 13.5: -112
- Under 13.5: -112
Gimme the under.
This year, Engram is averaging 14.9 DraftKings points per game, so the over would seem to be the sharp side. Plus the Cowboys have allowed the sixth-most points in the league to the position (15.3 per game).
But a lot of Engram’s production this season came early in the year, when quarterback Eli Manning was on the field and slot receiver Golden Tate was suspended.
Since Week 5, however, Engram has averaged just 8.8 DraftKings points per game with quarterback Daniel Jones as the starter and Tate as the team’s top pass-catching option.
In the mother of all matchups against the Cardinals in Week 7, he had just 1.6 points.
In the FantasyLabs Models, we have Engram projected for 11.5 DraftKings points.
Pick: Under 11.5 (-112) [Bet now at DraftKings]
