NFL Classic & Showdown DFS Picks & Player Rankings:

Below are our preferred plays for different contest types and roster spots. Plays are listed in order of preference. 

Low-Risk: Contests where roughly half the field doubles their entry fee (e.g. H2Hs, Double Ups, etc.)
Small-Field High-Risk: Contests with exponential payouts and/or where a smaller portion of the field gets paid with less than 500 entrants (e.g. Multipliers, Leagues, smaller GPPs)
Large-Field High-Risk: Contests with exponential payouts and/or where a smaller portion of the field gets paid with more than 500 entrants (e.g. Multipliers, Leagues, smaller GPPs)

NFL Classic


Low-Risk: BUF Josh Allen, DAL Dak Prescott

High-Risk: DET Jared Goff, MIN Kirk Cousins

In low-risk contests, we’re always going to favor dual threat QBs, particularly when they are in high total games or when they’re large favorites (This week, Josh Allen).

Our favorite game stack for Thursday is DET@BUF. On short slates, it's much more acceptable to super stack a game. We see 3+ players from one team in winning lineups frequently on short slates. The Bills have the most appeal at a slate-high 32 point team total on this slate.
