Thanksgiving Means Fantasy Football

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Thanksgiving means fantasy Football on Thursday, all day. There are three games this Thursday. I break down each game for fantasy football below:

Buffalo Bills-Detroit Lions on (12:30 p.m. ET)

For Buffalo, I would start with the usual suspects: Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, and Devin Singletary. Look for Singletary to help more receiving-wise than rushing the ball.

For Detroit, I like Amon-Ra St. Brown & Jamaal Williams. Looks like Swift is on track to play, but Williams has been on a tear this year, leading the NFL in TDs with 12.

New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys (4:30 p.m. ET)

For the Giants, Barkley is a must-start every week. In week 3 against the Cowboys, Barkley had 14 carries for 81 yards and a TD with 4 catches for 45 yards. The Giants’ receiving core is in disarray. Slayton is the #1 receiver there. Look for Kenny Golladay to get more looks but going against a tough Dallas defense, I would not start any of the Giants receivers in this one.

For Dallas, I like Tony Pollard. In week 3, he had 13 carries for 105 yards, while Zeke had 15 carries for 73 yards and a TD. In week 3, Dak Prescott did not play, and Cooper Rush did not have a great game. I also like Ceedee Lamb, who had 8 catches for 87 yards and a TD. Look for Dalton Schultz to be busy this week as well.

New England Patriots-Minnesota Vikings (8:20 p.m. ET)

For the Patriots, I like Rhamondre Stevenson, and that is about it. Mac Jones is more like a game manager and does not get asked to throw too much. They rely on the run and their solid defense.

For Minnesota, obviously, Justin Jefferson is a must-start, as always. I would still start Dalvin Cook but temper your expectations as the Patriots are #1 against the run. Kirk Cousins is coming off an awful game against Dallas and now faces a solid pass defense again. I do like Hockenson, as he has seen 28 targets over the past 3 games. Look for him to be busy in this one.

Rember to thaw your turkey, and remember that Thanksgiving means fantasy football, so do not forget to set your lineup.

I am an avid Philly sports fan. My dad played pro hockey in Europe before coming to the U.S. He got me into the Philadelphia Flyers, and I have loved it ever since. I love all the teams, have played fantasy football for a long time, and own two dynasty teams. You can also catch me on the Sully Squad every Monday night at 6 PM on Edge of Philly Sports.
