NFL DFS, Cowboys vs. Saints: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks for Thursday Night Football

The New Orleans Saints‘ offense revolves around four-time Pro Bowl running back Alvin Kamara. When he’s not in the lineup, as was the case last week against Buffalo, New Orleans struggles, only getting six points against the Bills. Kamara has resumed practicing this week and could see his first action since Week 9. If he suits up, can you trust him in your NFL DFS lineups for Cowboys vs. Saints? Which players should be part of your NFL DFS stacks?

Top NFL DFS picks for Cowboys vs. Saints

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Thursday Night Football is Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott. He’s coming off one of the best Thanksgiving performances in recent memory, as he passed for 375 yards, two touchdowns and no picks. It was just the fourth game of his career in which Prescott topped 350 yards with multiple TDs and no turnovers.

The Saints’ defense has allowed opposing quarterbacks to feast off it over the last five games. Over that stretch, two opposing quarterbacks have accounted for four touchdowns, two have totaled three scores and one has accounted for two TDs. As a result, Prescott is a must-start for Thursday Night Football DFS lineups.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Cowboys running back Tony Pollard, who had 36 rushing yards and 32 receiving yards in Week 12. He’s had at least 43 yards from scrimmage in all but one game this year and is averaging nearly 79 over his last three games.

Ezekiel Elliott has been ineffective in recent weeks because of a variety of ailments and the Cowboys are considering either resting him or scaling back his workload. That will present more opportunities for Pollard, who has outproduced Elliott on a per-touch basis in both the run game and pass game. Pollard’s touches have already been trending upwards in recent weeks and he’ll be in prime position to make a major impact on Thursday Night Football.
