FanDuel Thanksgiving: Best NFL Lineup, Picks & Top DFS Players

With the exception of turkey, nothing is a Thanksgiving tradition more than football. FanDuel gives daily fantasy players the opportunity to compete in Thanksgiving only contests as a way to celebrate the holiday. This is an important day to understand what competition you are entering and prepare a strategy accordingly. There are only four games on the day which means tournaments are especially challenging. While it is okay to have a couple players that are heavily owned, you want to make sure you have a healthy mix of players that are not going to be owned by a lot of your competitors. This is not as important in 50/50 games as you are looking for steady production from every player in your lineup. In addition to the top players in our rankings, here are additional options we like on Thanksgiving. Matthew Stafford has a history of playing well on Thanksgiving but faces a challenging Vikings defense. Rob Kelley offers a great bargain at running back at $5,700. Cole Beasley is an affordable option in the potent Cowboys offense at $6,400. Click the arrow on the right side of the above image to see Heavy's FanDuel Thanksgiving top picks. (Getty)
