Best Monkey Knife Fight picks for Thursday Night Football: Ravens vs Dolphins
Thursday Night Football is back for Week 10. For the second straight week, we don’t exactly have a marquee matchup for TNF. That doesn’t mean that this meeting between the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins won’t have plenty of intrigue, though. Will Lamar Jackson keep rolling toward a potential second MVP, or will the Dolphins pull a big upset? The spread is a little over a touchdown with the Ravens favored by 7.5 points and we of course have our own thoughts on the side and total, but right now we’re talking Monkey Knife Fight and the games they have available to play for TNF.
MKF is one of the fastest-growing daily fantasy sports sites in the U.S. with a unique offering of player props games. You don’t have to play against a bunch of professionals with algorithms and it’s super easy to use.

Monkey Knife Fight More or Less – Jacoby Brissett less than 235.5 passing yards, Lamar Jackson more than 235.5 passing yards
Looking at this passing yards More or Less, I’m going less for Brissett and more for Jackson. Let’s start with Brissett. I don’t see the Dolphins having very much success offensively. Miami has arguably the worst offensive line in the league, and starting center Greg Mancz just went down in their most recent game. Baltimore defensive coordinator Don Martindale is one of the best in the league at scheming up pressures, so I expect Brissett to be running for his life. He’s averaging a pitiful 5.6 yards per attempt, and even struggled mightily against the lowly Texans last week.
On the flip side, Jackson isn’t getting nearly enough respect. He’s made major strides as a passer this year, but oddsmakers have been slow to adjust. 235.5 feels ridiculously low considering Jackson has thrown for at least 235 yards in all but one game this season. The only game in which he didn’t get to 235 was when the Ravens destroyed the Chargers 34-6 and kept it mostly on the ground. He should have a field day here.
What is More or Less?
One of MKF’s most popular games, More or Less gives you a list of players and their yardage lines, and you simply have to choose More if you think they’ll go over, or Less if you think they’ll go under. It can include two or more selections, and if you get them all right you win! The more selections there are, the better the payout.

More or Less – Marquise Brown more than 60.5 receiving yards, Mike Gesicki less than 57.5 receiving yards
I often will play one More or Less and one Rapid Fire. But this week, none of the Rapid Fires jumped out to me. Instead, I like a second More or Less. I’m going more on Brown and less on Gesicki. Obviously this correlates nicely with our first More or Less, so we could very easily hit both of these if one of them hits. Brown has been the biggest beneficiary of Jackson’s progression as a passer, and he’s starting to put up huge numbers. He’s put up at least 80 receiving yards in 4 of his past 5 games, so 60.5 seems pretty conservative. Most importantly the volume has been consistent, as he’s had at least 10 targets in 3 of his past 4 contests. He’s a legitimate deep threat who has a catch of 20+ yards in every game this season, so we might need only a few receptions to hit the more.
On the flip side, I’m not expecting too much from Gesicki. Despite getting targeted heavily last week and making a few splash plays, he still finished with only 54 yards. And that was against a lifeless Texans defense in a game in which Brissett attempted a whopping 43 passes. Gesicki has now played 5 games with Brissett as the quarterback. He’s eclipsed 57 yards in only one of them.
