DraftKings: Thanksgiving Day Breakdown

A 3-game DFS slate brings even more volatility than usual. So I’ll be skipping cash games this Thanksgiving and focusing on tournaments. Here’s how I’ll be attacking …


It’s Josh Allen ($8,000) and everyone else. Allen has topped 30 DK points 5 times this season. The other 5 starting QBs playing on Thursday have TOTALED 2 games of 30+ DK points.

Allen is coming off his worst fantasy outing of the season in what was a run-leaning game from Buffalo. I’m expecting that to be a 1-game blip rather than the start of a trend.

Allen couldn’t ask for a better get-right spot. The Lions rank 23rd in Football Outsiders’ pass defense DVOA, 31st in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs and will be without top CB Jeffrey Okudah. The Bills are rockin’ a massive 32-point implied total – 4.25 points more than any other team on this slate.
