While the NBA stops for Thanksgiving there’s no rest for some teams in the NFL. The much anticipated thanksgiving matches offer up some exciting prospects for DFS players. Moneyball has an awesome $2,000 Guaranteed Contest so lets take a look at some of the key picks to look out for:


Dak Prescott ($7,500)

The Cowboys QB has been super solid this season without being outstanding. Has been very consistent throwing the ball (800 yards last three weeks) while the Redskins defence has struggled against the throw this season. Prescott looks like a solid play at this price.

Running Back

Ezekiel Elliot ($8,800)

Sticking with the same match for my running back pick with Elliot killing it so far this year. He is second in rushing yards across the NFL and has established a solid combination with Prescott this season. These two are going to be a big factor if the Cowboys are going to win this match.

Wide Receiver

Mohamed Sanu ($5,400)

Sanu is going to be a good option for this slate and will hopefully find a point of difference for your line up. Atlanta have been prioritizing throwing the ball and I can only see an increase in that happening while playing catch-up to the Saints.


Benjamin Watson ($5,700)

Coming off what can only be described as a disappointing outing last week, I’m backing Watson to bounce back in a big way here. The Saints are predicted to rack up a big score and by law of averages I can see a TD or two coming his way.
