Monday Night Football DraftKings Picks: NFL DFS lineup advice for Week 14 Ravens-Browns Showdown tournaments
The Browns try to continue their best season in more than a decade when they play the Ravens on Monday Night Football to close out Week 14. You know what Baltimore in prime-time action means for us — Lamar Jackson in a DraftKings Showdown lineup. We’re again going with Jackson in the captain spot of our single-game DFS lineup.
The key fades here are Baker Mayfield and Jarvis Landry, but it will be tough for Cleveland to pass against the Ravens. So, we have both Browns RBs to go with some of Jackson’s friends in the Baltimore passing game for what should be a fun Monday night matchup.

DraftKings Showdown Picks: Browns vs. Ravens
Captain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): QB Lamar Jackson, Ravens ($17,700)
For the second straight prime-time Baltimore game, we’re locking Jackson in to the captain slot. That means we’re not heavily investing in the Cleveland passing game, but that seems sensible in this matchup. Jackson proved last time out that it only takes a few big plays for him to be the right captain choice on DK.
FLEX: RB Nick Chubb, Browns ($10,200)
Chubb has made a case as the best running back in football when healthy this season, and the Browns will have to lean on the run to beat Baltimore. Chubb’s 80 yards in Week 14 ended a streak of three consecutive 100-yard games, but even with that, he’s scored more than 14 DK points in four straight weeks.
FLEX: TE Mark Andrews, Ravens ($8,800)
Andrews is Jackson’s favorite target down near the end zone, which is exactly the type of player we want to stack with our QB captain. If Jackson throws a touchdown to Andrews, our lineup will be in great shape.
FLEX: RB Kareem Hunt, Browns ($7,200)
Even with Chubb being a star, Hunt has seen double-digit carries in every game he’s played this season. We’re hoping that most folks will play only one of the Cleveland running backs, but with such a heavy reliance on the run for the Browns, we’ll count on the combo to come through for us.
FLEX: TE Harrison Bryant, Browns ($4,200)
The Bryant play depends on Austin Hooper (neck) indeed being out, as expected. Bryant’s last game played in the AFC North with Hooper out resulted in four catches for 56 yards and two touchdowns. The rookie from FAU is a good athlete who can make a few plays down the field for us.
FLEX: WR Devin Duvernay, Ravens ($1,600)
Duvernay played 80 percent of the snaps for Baltimore in Week 13 with Dez Bryant (COVID) out, and Bryant will be out again this week. He only caught one pass, but it’s that playing time that we’ll chase, along with the explosiveness Duvernay possesses. He only needs a couple touches to pay off in a big way.
