Top NFL DFS Picks for Vikings vs Patriots Thursday Night Football Showdown

Welcome to the Top NFL DFS Picks for Vikings vs Patriots Thursday Night Football Showdown! The Vikings enter the game as 3 point home favorites as we wrap up this Turkey day slate. The game has a total of 42. 

 For each primetime game this season, I will be providing you with my favorite plays at the Captain, MVP, Superstar positions as well as the flex position for DraftKings, FanDuel, and Yahoo.

Captain/MVP/SuperStar Plays


Tj Hockenson, TE $10,800 (DK), $12,000 (FD), $20 (Yahoo))

Since Hockenson came over in the trade from Detroit, he has seen a total of 28 targets and has caught 21 of them. The Pats defense ranks in the bottom 7 in fantasy points allowed to the opposing TE. 

I think we see Hockenson’s first blow up game as a Vikings with him finding the end zone multiple times. Hockenson is my favorite play at the multiplier spots.

Jakobi Meyers, WR $12,300 (DK), $13,000 (FD), $18 (Yahoo))

Based on ownerships it looks like everyone is going to use Stevenson as their top Pats CPTN play and that does not make any sense to me with how he is used with Harris. 

Jakobi Meyers is my favorite play from the Pats at the multiplier spots as the Vikings are giving up the 9th most fantasy points to opposing QBs. If Mac can get things going then Meyers will benefit the most as he is his favorite target. 

Flex Plays

Patriots WRs not named Jakobi Meyers

I know this is a bit different than usual but I wanted to lump all the other Pats receivers into one bunch to talk about them. Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor, DeVante Parker (If active), Tyquan Thornton are all bad plays on paper. Each could only see 1-3 targets. I want to be sure I set a rule when building lineups to allow no more than 1 of these receivers in my lineups. If I play any other Pats skill position players besides the backs and Meyers it will be Jonnu. 

That will do it for me, if you want to receive my entire player pool along with notes for this game and for each main slate be sure to join us at Team Rise or Fall! Use promo code “Scrosby” to receive $10 off your first month. Click to view all of our membership options  https://teamriseorfall.com/subscribe-today/Ki
