The 2022 NFL season is just around the corner and the preseason will reach its conclusion on Sunday with the final two exhibition games. The Jets and Giants will go head-to-head in a 1 p.m. ET kickoff and then the Steelers will visit the Lions for a 4:30 p.m. ET start. Jets starter Zach Wilson is still rehabbing after tearing his meniscus earlier this preseason, which leaves Joe Flacco to run the offense in his absence.
However, Flacco hasn't taken a rep yet this preseason and it's been Mike White who has taken most of the snaps through the first two games. White has only produced 188 yards and hasn't thrown a touchdown pass in 37 pass attempts this preseason so he might be a player to avoid as you fill out your NFL DFS lineups. Before locking in any NFL DFS picks for Sunday, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine's Jacob Gibbs.
Gibbs uses a data-driven approach that has helped him consistently provide accurate rankings at every position. He has proven to be one of the nation's most accurate Fantasy rankers in recent years -- posting the eighth-most accurate results over the past three seasons, according to Fantasy Pros.
Gibbs analyzes each incoming rookie class in detail and is familiar with the entirety of each NFL team's offensive depth chart. He also closely monitored training camp reports this summer and has a good feel for which players are poised for a strong preseason performance. If there's anybody who can give you an edge in preseason NFL DFS, it's him.
Now, Gibbs has turned his attention to Sunday's NFL DFS slate and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Sunday
For Week 3 NFL preseason games on Sunday (where every player is priced at $5,500 on DraftKings and $6,000 on FanDuel), one of Gibbs' top picks is Steelers running back Jaylen Warren. After spending the beginning of his collegiate career at Utah State, Warren transferred to Oklahoma State for the 2021 season and made an enormous impact during his time in Stillwater.
He won the starting role and rushed for 1,216 yards and 11 touchdowns while also catching 25 passes for 225 yards. He ultimately went undrafted but has been receiving an extended look in Pittsburgh this preseason, rushing nine times for 37 yards in the first two games. He's in the mix for a roster spot so he's got a chance to see a lot of work on Sunday against the Lions.
He's also rostering Steelers wide receiver George Pickens as he takes on the Lions in the 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday. Pickens was a five-star recruit coming out of high school and made an instant impact at Georgia with 49 catches for 727 yards and eight touchdowns as a freshman.
However, Pickens' career with the Bulldogs was slightly derailed, first by the pandemic and then by a torn ACL during spring ball before his junior season. He returned to make an impact play in the national title game and put enough on film for Pittsburgh to take him in the second round. Now he's been climbing up the depth chart with highlight-reel plays in training camp and he has five catches for 49 yards and a touchdown this preseason.
