Thanksgiving DraftKings Picks

By Jared Smola 1:11pm EST 11/27/19


My favorite Thanksgiving side? Stuffing.

My 2nd favorite? DraftKings.

Here are some thoughts on each position for the 3-game Thanksgiving slate …


QB

I did a double take when I saw Dak Prescott’s price. $5,700?! Cheaper than Drew Brees, Matt Ryan AND Josh Allen?! Prescott leads all of those guys in DK points per game. And while the Bills have been tough against the pass all season, Dak has been money at home, averaging 28.1 DK points.

Prescott figures to be massively owned. Drew Brees ($6,800) is the pivot in tournaments. On top of lower ownership, I also think he has the highest ceiling on the slate. He’s tossed 3 TDs in 3 of 4 games back from that thumb injury. The lone exception was the 1st meeting with the Falcons — but I’m tossing out that goofy game. Expect much better in the rematch with a team that’s allowed the 6th most passing yards and 5th most TDs on the season.


RB
