Happy Thanksgiving folks!! Hope you all enjoy your families and your football, and I hope to make it a little better by helping you find the payout zone on Fantasy Draft. We have our typical 3-game Turkey Day bonanza, with home games for the Lions and Cowboys, and a third game starting right about the time we fully hit our food comas.
Detroit will host the Bears to kick things off at 12:30 ET, (remember lock is a half-hour earlier than a normal slate) followed by a battle between Dallas and Buffalo. In the nightcap, the Falcons will host the Saints, in what easily looks like our best game for DFS purposes. I can see a lot of defense in the first two games of the day, and plenty of points in Atlanta. With that said, let’s dig into my targets for this week.
Matt Ryan – $12,000
Ryan really put up a dud as the highest owned QB last week, failing to reach 10 FP. However, on a three-game slate for Turkey Day, it is hard not to make him the best QB with what we have to work with. After two straight games of shutting down opposing offenses, the Atlanta D gave up 35 to the Bucs last week and Ryan struggled against one of the worst pass defenses in the league.
At the very least, that should be fresh in everyone’s minds, and may sway some ownership? Josh Allen is only $100 cheaper and is an interesting play against Dallas with his rushing upside and with Brees just $700 more, my assumption is that Brees will be the highest-owned QB. Ryan feels like the point-per-dollar play here, and I am expecting a bounce-back effort at home against a division rival.
***Also Consider: Drew Brees $12,700 – Josh Allen $11,900***
