Cowboys-Saints DFS lineups: Fantasy Football Today analysts share captains’ picks and daily lineups for TNF

Every NFL week begins with a Thursday night soccer game for most of the rest of the 2021 season, and these are our favorite lists for playing Daily Fantasy Football. The TNF Showdown Slate lets you choose from a smaller crop of players, and if your choice of cheap sleeper succeeds, you can win big in your tournaments or easily win your DFS head-to-head clashes.

Each week, I will receive Thursday night’s DFS picks from our experts and we’ll feature them below. But first, let’s preview the match and what we can expect.

Both teams enter this game well rested – a rarity for Thusday Night Football – after playing on Thanksgiving. However, the Dallas Cowboys enter this game much healthier than the New Orleans Saints. For the Saints, they will be without Alvin Kamara for another game, so make sure you don’t add him to any roster. Perhaps equally concerning is the fact that New Orleans will be deprived of its two starting offensive tackles – two of the top five – to the worst of the NFL’s top 10 at their respective positions.

That’s not to say we won’t be in reserve for an exciting Daily Fantasy roster, as Taysom Hill starts off for the Saints. Hill managed to regularly rack up QB1 numbers in 2020, but without the two starting tackles and Kamara, no more Michael Thomas to start, this task is much more difficult.

On the flip side, the Cowboys are sacking several starters for this game and despite previous concerns that Ezekiel Elliott could rest and this could lead to a big role for Tony Pollard, team owner Jerry Jones has all but promised a big workload for the return. . The Elliott-Pollard decision will likely determine many of those queues. We can’t wait to see how it all plays out.
