Thanksgiving DraftKings Advice

By Jared Smola 1:11pm EST 11/22/17

The full Week 12 picks will be ready to roll by Saturday morning.

To whet your Thanksgiving appetite, here are cash-game and tournament targets at every position for the 3-game Thursday slate.


Cash: Philip Rivers, Chargers ($6,100)

Kirk Cousins has by far the highest raw projection among the 6 QBs playing on Thanksgiving. But Rivers, who’s $1,000 cheaper, edges him out in dollars-per-point value.

He rolls into Dallas with 2+ TDs in 5 of his last 7 games. The Cowboys, meanwhile, have coughed up multiple passing TDs in 3 straight and 7 of 10 overall. They’ll again be without stud LB Sean Lee.

At 24.75 points, the Chargers have the 2nd highest implied total on the Thanksgiving slate.

Tournament: Kirk Cousins, Redskins ($7,100)

Here’s where paying up for that raw projection makes sense.

Cousins is piping hot right now, averaging 299 yards on a 67% completion rate in 6 games since his Week 5 bye. He’s topped 27 DraftKings points in 4 of those 6 outings. And now he gets a Giants defense that’s allowed multiple passing TDs in 5 of its last 7 games.

Also consider: Matt Stafford ($6,000)
