Fantasy Football: NFL DFS Turkey Day Special

By: Jared Leonard | @JaredLeonard77

It’s Thanksgiving and we’re all about food, football, and DFS. Want to make turkey day football a little more exciting and hopefully make your turkey dinner taste a lot better? Play the 3 game Thanksgiving Day slate. Let’s look at the plays we like for this short slate.


Brees and Ryan are going to be very popular, but it’s hard not playing either one of these guys. This game should be similar to the first meeting and both offenses will put up points. I like Dak as a cheap play. He has the potential to put up 20+ points in this matchup.

Drew Brees

Matt Ryan

Dak Prescott

Running Backs:

Zeke and Kamara look like they are in prime spots this week. The Falcons can’t cover backs out of the backfield and Kamara is deadly as a receiver out of the backfield. Dallas’ offense looks different lately and thats because the offense revolves around Zeke. And he hasn’t disappointed. I really like Ingram this week as well and think you could play Kamara and Ingram in the same lineup. My favorite cheap play is Theo Riddick. Johnson is out and Blount has looked awful. I like Riddick to have a bigger role this week and great in PPR formats.

Ezekiel Elliot

Alvin Kamara

Mark Ingram

Tevin Coleman

Theo Riddick

Tarik Cohen

Wide Receivers:

Both Thomas and Julio are going off tomorrow. I would try to get one of those studs in your lineup. I really like Sanu this week and his high snap count playing in the slot. He should take advantage of the Saints nickel corner. My favorite cheap play is, Michael Gallup. He unfortunately had a tragedy in his family earlier this week and he will be playing with a lot of emotion. I think because of this, he will have a good game.

Michael Thomas

Julio Jones

Calvin Ridley

Mohammed Sanu

Tre’Quan Smith

Michael Gallup

Tight Ends:

Reed is the best option in this short slate, but if you can’t fit him in, Burton looks like a good option.

Jordan Reed

Austin Hooper

Trey Burton

Ben Watson


No Mitch Trubisky for the Bears, play the Lions!
