Thanksgiving week in the NFL makes for some interesting options when putting together your fantasy football Fanduel lineup.
This week’s main fantasy football Fanduel games are greatly impacted by the adjusted schedule because of the Thanksgiving games. The Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints all play this Thursday.
The holiday takes the likes of Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas out of the mix. Obviously, there will be some specific Thanksgiving day fanduel options but the talent pool for the main contests is depleted.
Things are made even worse with the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams on a bye. The limited pool of players created some interesting scenarios this week.
I found myself targeting players from a small group of games. The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals matchup offered some strong options. It was tough not to see Baker Mayfield and Nick Chubb as top plays.
The Bengals also have some good options like a healthy A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. Another game I focused on was the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Denver Broncos.
Pittsburgh’s offensive attack has been so effective this year that it’s not crazy to have multiple Steelers in your lineup. This week I was finally able to budget my money well enough to get Antonio Brown on my roster.
Hopefully everyone has a great holiday and enjoys some delicious food while watching football. The weekend games may be a little weak, but football is entertaining either way.
