DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Helper: The Thanksgiving Slate

For those of you interested in more than just turkey and pie this Thanksgiving, never fear. The Week 12 DraftKings Thanksgiving Day Slate Primer is here!

Given the short slate, this week's primer will shift gears and focus on studs, values, stacks, and contrarian plays for potential cash or tournament lineups. By taking a look at key matchups, Vegas spreads and totals, our Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, and some daily fantasy gamesmanship, we can uncover some of these players that are worth targeting to help build our lineups around.

Of course, numberFire offers a great tool for premium members, allowing you to build customizable lineups by inputting your players and seeing what our projections offer for the week. There's even an optimization function that uses our algorithms to help fill out the rest of your daily lineup and give you the best chance of succeeding on game day.

Let's dive into Week 12's Thanksgiving Day slate and check out which plays to target on DraftKings.
