DFS Buccaneers-Eagles 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’ll get Thursday Night 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 was shaping up to be a classic NFC West back-and-forth until Russell Wilson was injured. Geno Smith replaced him and led a fun run for a score before throwing an interception to seal things off. This week we have a clash between the Buccaneers and the Eagles that has a pretty high projected points total of 52.5.

This makes sense considering the current state of the Buccaneers’ defense. It’s not the same defense you saw at the Super Bowl due to a slew of high school injuries. Even Jacoby Brissett managed to pass the ball last week against that high school, and Jalen Hurts has QB1 (for the week) upside down in this game. Devonta Smith also plans to be a value with no one in the Buccaneers’ high school to go one-on-one with him. You’ll probably want to have Zach Ertz in your rosters as well, but just know that it will be a very chalk game with Dallas Goedert expected to miss this game. The Buccaneers will also be without defense chief Lavonte David.

On the other hand, Tom Brady comes into this game healing a thumb injury he suffered last week, but he is expected to play it. With the exception of Rob Gronkowski, Brady will have all his weapons against an Eagles defense who performed better in Week 5 but allowed 40 or more points in the consecutive weeks before that.
