Monday's slate of Week 15 NFL games includes a Monday Night Football matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this MNF showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Vikings vs Bears MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Dalvin Cook - Rushing Yards: Over 92.5 (-110)

Dalvin Cook's dislocated shoulder didn't seem to bother him too much in Week 14 when he rushed for 200 yards on 27 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It'll be hard to have another performance like that, but he has a good shot at hitting the over on this prop against a Bears defense surrendering 120.0 rushing yards per game (22nd). Backup running back Alexander Mattison is still on the COVID-19 list, so Cook will see the lion's share of carries once again. With the Vikings as 6.5-point favorites, it could be another big night for the fifth-year veteran.

2. Justin Fields - Passing Yards: Over 205.5 (-110)

Justin Fields has faced some struggles in his rookie campaign. In fact, he's only thrown for 200 yards in three of his eight starts. However, he'll aim to make it four when he faces the Vikings, who have one of the worst secondaries in the league. Opposing teams have torched Minnesota for 251.9 passing yards per game so far, which is the fourth-worst average in the NFL. The Vikings also released cornerback Bashaud Breeland over the weekend, which means the defense should be ripe for Fields to hit the over on this prop — especially with the Bears likely trailing.

3. Justin Jefferson - Receiving Yards: Over 95.5 (-110)

Justin Jefferson has been a stud in his sophomore season, already tallying 1,288 receiving yards on 85 receptions. The former LSU Tiger has hit the century mark five times this season and should come close to it again tonight. Fellow wideout Adam Thielen will be a game-time decision due to his ankle sprain. If Thielen misses the game, Jefferson will easily be Kirk Cousins' No. 1 target again. It also helps that the talented pass-catcher averaged 119.5 receiving yards in two meetings with the Bears last season. Considering Chicago gave up over 300 yards through the air to the Green Bay Packers last week, it wouldn't be a shock to see Jefferson hit the over on this prop.
