After three Thursday games last week for Thanksgiving, the 2023 NFL Week 13 schedule goes back to the more common single-game format for Thursday Night Football when the Dallas Cowboys host the Seattle Seahawks at 8:15 p.m. ET. Dallas has the highest-scoring offense in the NFL, averaging 31.5 points per game, so their top options in the NFL DFS player pool such as Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb and Tony Pollard could be popular selections for NFL DFS lineups. None of them will be cheap, so who are NFL DFS sleepers to consider when forming an NFL DFS strategy? Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III (oblique) is doubtful after missing last week and Zach Charbonnet played 88% of snaps without him. Before making any NFL DFS picks for Cowboys vs. Seahawks on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS lineup advice, strategy and player stacks from SportsLine NFL daily Fantasy expert Jimmie Kaylor.
Kaylor is a NFL and DFS expert for SportsLine, who opened the 2022 NFL season by winning DraftKings' NFL Showdown Thursday Kickoff Millionaire contest. He edged out over 355,000 other entrants in the contest and also has multiple five-figure tournament wins on his DFS resume. Kaylor, who cashed big all season in 2022, has covered the NFL and college football for over a decade as a member of the Pro Football Writers of America, and his background as a former college and NFL player gives him a unique perspective when building his fantasy lineups and locking in his betting picks.
Kaylor hit on epic NFL DFS picks all season in 2022. He was all over Travis Kelce's four-touchdown performance against the Raiderson Monday Night Football, Kirk Cousins' 460-yard, four-TD performance on Thanksgiving Day, and T.J. Hockenson's 13 catches for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15.
This year, Kaylor has been all over players like Justin Jefferson (11-159), D'Andre Swift (175-1), DeVonta Smith (4-132-1), T.J. Hockenson (7-66-2), D.J. Moore (8-230-3), David Montgomery (121-3), Ja'Marr Chase (12-141), Alvin Kamara (12-91, 76), Jordan Addison (7-123-2), Jahmyr Gibbs (152-1, 5-37), Javonte Williams (79, 4-31-1) in single-game slates. Anyone who followed his picks cashed in big.
Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to Seahawks vs. Cowboys on Thursday Night Football Week 13 and just locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see his picks and analysis at SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Cowboys vs. Seahawks on TNF
One of Kaylor's favorite NFL DFS picks for TNF is Cowboys All-Pro wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. The four-year receiver is third in the NFL in receiving yards (1,006 yards) while averaging a career-best 96.9 yards per game. Lamb and Dak Prescott are forming arguably the best quarterback-receiver duo in the NFL at the moment, with Lamb averaging 8.5 receptions for 118 yards with six total touchdowns over his last two games. Lamb is WR1 in Fantasy football during that stretch and is WR3 in Fantasy football on the season.
Lamb has a touchdown in each of his last three games and has at least one touchdown in four of five home games this season. The Cowboys are averaging 41 points per game at home this season, including scoring at least 30 points in all five contests at AT&T Stadium. The Seahawks are allowing 27.8 points per game over their last four contests, including surrendering 31 points to the 49ers last week, and Kaylor is expecting another huge game from Lamb and the Dallas offense on TNF.
Part of Kaylor's TNF DFS strategy also includes rostering Seahawks tight end Noah Fant, who had 25 receiving yards last week. The 26-year-old tight end hasn't been utilized as often over the last few weeks, but Seattle may be wise to reconsider that. Fant had at least 40 receiving yards in each of the first three games of the season, all Seattle victories, but has posted at least 25 yards in only three of his last six games.
The Seahawks could find themselves trailing early and needing to throw to keep pace with Dallas. That should benefit Fant, who played 59% of snaps last week. He has played more than 50% of the team's snaps the last six weeks and given his cheaper price tag for NFL DFS lineups, Fant is a contender to outperform his cost. In a game with expensive elite options in the NFL DFS player pool, finding the right value options will be key toward cashing on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings and Kaylor sees Fant as one of those plays for TNF.
