DFS Patriots-Falcons 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.

Last week we were greeted with tremendous upheaval. The Dolphins came up with an interesting game plan to slow down Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ offense and it wasn’t too complicated – sending home early and often. The Dolphins bombarded Jackson on almost every throwback and the end result was a dominant defensive performance that led Miami to the surprising victory. Sadly, a dominant defense doesn’t make a fun slate of Daily Fantasy – unless of course you’ve loaded Miami D / ST in your place as captain and the high-priced Ravens are fading.

This week, the action will once again be centered around a heavy, almost touchdown favorite – the Patriots. This means that you can expect a lot of people playing this DFS slate stack a lineup around a predicted play script that heavily favors the New England running game and the Atlanta passing game ( playing in catch-up mode). It will be interesting to see how the squad evolve in the Patriots backfield with the return of Damien Harris after missing Week 10 – Rhamondre Stevenson’s breakout week.

And let’s not forget that just two weeks ago Atlanta caused a major upheaval against New Orleans and if the game’s script doesn’t play out the way Vegas predicted, you could make some money by becoming against the grain in this one. As you will see below, our experts are mixed on how this game will play out. So that alone should make a fun DFS slate!
