DFS Browns-Broncos line-ups: 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.

Last week had the appearance of a Buccaneers blowout before the Eagles made it interesting in the second half. Ultimately, that could come down as the game has brought home to us once and for all that Leonard Fournette is a borderline RB1 moving forward given his role in Tampa’s explosive offense. Antonio Brown continued to fight for the most productive Fantasy WR in Tampa and Jalen Hurts has once again proven he doesn’t need to rack up passing yards to score you Fantasy points.

Moving on to Week 7, injuries are the key storyline in this Browns-Broncos game and they will certainly impact the DFS roster. You won’t find a prime-time game less excited about playing quarterfinals in your captain’s roles than this one with Baker Mayfield ruled out and Teddy Bridgewater struggling while playing with a foot injury. Case Keenum will start in Mayfield’s place, and although he has had success in the past in current coach Kevin Stefanski’s system, he has only had a short week to develop a relationship with a body of shallow reception. It could lead to another big day for David Njoku. On the other hand, Bridgewater and the Broncos offense have returned to gravel, but one player who continues to grow is rookie RB Javonte Williams. It’ll be interesting to see how timeshare breaks down with Melvin Gordon – an escape game is coming for Williams at some point and this could be it.
