NFL Week 11 comes to a close with a matchup between top Super Bowl contenders when the Kansas City Chiefs host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football. Kickoff from GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium is at 8:15 p.m. ET. The NFL DFS player pool will be star-studded with Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, and DeVonta Smith as the headliners. Should you build your NFL DFS stacks and NFL DFS lineups around Mahomes and Kelce? Or would it make more sense to build around Hurts, Brown, and Smith? Before making any NFL DFS picks for Chiefs vs. Eagles on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS lineup advice, strategy and player stacks from SportsLine NFL daily Fantasy expert Jimmie Kaylor.
Kaylor is a NFL and DFS expert for SportsLine, who opened the 2022 NFL season by winning DraftKings' NFL Showdown Thursday Kickoff Millionaire contest. He edged out over 355,000 other entrants in the contest and also has multiple five-figure tournament wins on his DFS resume.

Kaylor hit on epic NFL DFS picks all season in 2022. He was all over Travis Kelce's four-touchdown performance against the Raiders on Monday Night Football, Kirk Cousins' 460-yard, four-TD performance on Thanksgiving Day, and T.J. Hockenson's 13 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15.
This year, Kaylor has been all over players like Justin Jefferson (11-159), D'Andre Swift (175-1), DeVonta Smith (4-132-1), T.J. Hockenson (7-66-2), D.J. Moore (8-230-3), David Montgomery (121-3), Ja'Marr Chase (12-141), Alvin Kamara (12-91, 76), Jordan Addison (7-123-2), Jahmyr Gibbs (152-1, 5-37), Javonte Williams (79, 4-31-1) in single-game slates.

Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to the Week 11 Chiefs vs. Eagles matchup on Monday Night Football and just locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see his picks and analysis at SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Chiefs vs. Eagles on MNF
One of Kaylor's favorite NFL DFS picks for MNF is Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts. The former Alabama and Oklahoma standout leads one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL, and should be well-rested coming off a bye week. The last time Hurts faced Kansas City, he accounted for four touchdowns and almost 400 total yards of offense. Kaylor is expecting another dominant performance from the 25-year-old on Monday night.
"Jalen Hurts is coming off a much needed bye week and should be much healthier heading into this matchup. The last time Hurts faced Kansas City, he ran for 70 yards and three touchdowns and threw for 304 yards and a score. I don't expect massive numbers like that, but I do expect Hurts to have a very productive night on MNF against Kansas City's elite defense," Kaylor told SportsLine.
Part of Kaylor's MNF DFS strategy also includes rostering Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. The 34-year-old has already put together a first-ballot Hall of Fame type of career resume, and he doesn't seem to be slowing down. Kelce is the unquestioned top target in Kansas City's offense and enters MNF with 57 catches for 597 yards and four touchdowns, despite missing some time with an ankle injury.
"Travis Kelce's importance to the effectiveness of Kansas City's offense cannot be understated. The future Hall of Famer has an elite football I.Q. and his ability to find holes in a defense is rare. Kelce's rapport with with Patrick Mahomes makes him a must-start DFS and fantasy football option almost every week," Kaylor said. You can see the rest of Kaylor's NFL DFS picks here.
