The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football in a battle of teams we’ll likely see in the post-season. NFL DFS players have plenty to ponder as the 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff approaches. Chargers running back Melvin Gordon will miss the game with a knee injury, leaving Austin Ekeler as the lead back. Rookie Josh Jackson could see time in the backfield for LA as well. The Steelers are favored by a field goal and there are plenty of NFL DFS tournaments and cash games to choose from. Before you lock in any players on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, check out the optimal NFL DFS lineups from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

McClure is rolling through the 2018 season thanks to some spot-on picks. In Week 1, his optimal NFL DFS lineups finished in the top 3 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and the top 1 percent of tournaments on FanDuel. In Week 4, he finished in the top 2 percent on DraftKings and top 6 percent on FanDuel. In Week 5, his lineups cashed with ease on both sites. In Week 8, his followers saw massive returns, with his DraftKings lineup finishing in the top 1 percent of all tournaments, while his Week 9 lineup cashed with ease on FanDuel. He cashed yet again on both sites in Week 10, and then his optimal lineup on FanDuel returned almost 3x the last two weeks. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Sunday Night Football, we can tell you McClure is all over Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger enters Sunday Night Football having thrown for 300-plus yards in three straight games, and he’s also played extremely well at home this season. In fact, Roethlisberger has thrown multiple touchdown passes in four of his last five games at Heinz Field, which includes a five-touchdown performance against the Panthers in his last home start. He’s one of the top NFL DFS picks that needs to be in lineups on Sunday night.
Conner is expected to be heavily involved in the Steelers’ offensive gameplan on Sunday night. He’a recorded at least 19 carries in four of his last seven games and gets an ideal matchup against the Chargers. Los Angeles’ rush defense is giving up over 105 yards per game and allowed three rushing touchdowns to Broncos running backs in Week 11.
Conner hasn’t topped 100 yards rushing in the last three games, but adds plenty of value as a receiver, logging 10 total catches in the last two weeks. He has 11 touchdowns this season on the ground, so lock in Conner as a top NFL DFS pick on Sunday night. He has multi-TD upside, which is what’s needed to dominate a short slate.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Sunday Night Football because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your NFL DFS tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
