DraftKings has plenty of Thursday Start Fantasy Football Contests to choose from,
Here’s a couple of line up ideas and contests for you to consider……
First off, the Thursday game on September 17th has Denver visiting Kansas City at 8:25ET.
I really don’t see a whole lot of fantasy options of real value you could hang your hat on in this game. Payton Manning may be due for a bounce back game, but I would wait until I see him put up some real fantasy numbers before I would commit salary to him on a DK Line-up. Also note, Manning was limited with a sore back on Monday
I would consider Alex Smith KC as a QB option on Thursday Night if you stack him with Travis Kelce TE KC.
I just think there are a few better QB / WR Stack options on the Sunday/Monday games
The Thursday Value Plays I would consider starting:
Feel free to start Travis Kelce TE KC $5100 and Ronnie Hillman RB DEN $5600 if C.J. Anderson RB DEN (who is Questionable for Thursday, is not playing).
Other Values: A Smith KC QB $6300, J Charles KC RB $7600, E Saunders DEN WR $7600
The Thursday start NFL football contests on DraftKings will usually see maybe 20% to 25% of the entire player field using their entire salary cap on 8 of their 9 roster spots on that one game. These players are hoping to build a big lead early and then coast to a win on Monday Night……
That is not a good strategy, don’t do that! It’s okay to play a quality player or two each Thursday, but you’ll score a lot more points with your line up choices from the Sunday and Monday NFL games.
