NFL DFS DraftKings Thanksgiving Day Slate Picks (Fantasy Football)
Happy Thanksgiving, Footclan! If you’re playing DFS on DraftKings this Turkey Day, I’ve got you covered. If you’re playing on FanDuel, be sure to check out Kyle’s top FanDuel plays as well as our full DFS Thanksgiving slate preview article and podcast. For this article, I’ll be focusing on my cash pool as well as some GPP pivots, but for a full understand of how to attack smaller slates like Thursday’s I’d definitely recommend the preview article and DFS Podcast. Best of luck Thursday, and Happy Thanksgiving!
Josh Allen $7,800
Allen is far and away the best QB play on the slate in an underrated matchup against a Saints defense that’s given up an average of 30 points per game to their opponents over the last three weeks. Furthermore, New Orleans has given up top-eight fantasy QB results in four straight weeks. With the Bills having the second highest team implied total on the slate and the Saints operating as a true pass funnel defense that can’t rush the passer (31st in pressure rate), Allen looks like the cream of the crop at the QB position for Thursday’s slate. No team has given up more fantasy points to QBs than the Saints over the last five weeks.
