Every NFL week starts with a Thursday Night Football game for most of the remainder of the 2021 season, and these are our favorite slates to play Daily Fantasy Football. The TNF showdown slate allows you a smaller crop of players to choose from, and if your cheap sleeper pick hits, you can cash big in your tournaments or easily win your head-to-head DFS matchups.
Thanksgiving is a great time for family, food -- and football. The NFL upgrading to a three-game slate in recent years means even more action for those who enjoy building Daily Fantasy Football lineups and entering tournaments or cash games. Below, we'll break down how our Fantasy Football Today experts are reacting to the Thanksgiving slate of games: Bears-Lions, Cowboys-Raiders, and Bills-Saints.
We kick things off in Detroit and we get the feeling there will be some spraying in on either team's D/ST units with Jared Goff trending toward playing and Andy Dalton for Chicago. The Cowboys-Raiders game should bring more action and we wouldn't be surprised to see some stacks that feature the Cowboys skill players. This is a game you'll have to check back around the time of inactives (90 minutes before kickoff) so you can see if Ezekiel Elliott and CeeDee Lam will suit up. We wrap things up with Bills-Saints as Buffalo looks to bounce back while New Orleans looks to stay alive in the NFC playoff hunt. It should be a fun Thanksgiving of football for all and we can't wait!
Without further ado, here's a look at who our experts are picking in DFS for the Thanksgiving slate.
QB Josh Allen, BUF
RB D'Andre Swift, DET
RB David Montgomery, CHI
WR Stefon Diggs, BUF
WR Hunter Renfrow, LV
WR Cedric Wilson, DAL
TE Dawson Knox, BUF
FLEX Ty'Quan Smith, NO
