NFL DFS, Giants vs. Washington: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy picks for Thursday Night Football

The two biggest offseason additions to the Washington Football Team are now on the shelf, with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) injured in Week 1, joining wide receiver Curtis Samuel (groin) on the sideline. With a short turnaround for Thursday Night Football against the New York Giants, neither will suit up for the divisional matchup. However, that presents opportunities for players like Taylor Heinicke and rookie Dyami Brown to be NFL DFS picks on a national stage.

Should Heinicke’s ability to use his legs factor into your NFL DFS strategy as he tries to take pressure off Antonio Gibson in the ground game? Can Brown take advantage of teams doubling Terry McLaurin by returning value in NFL DFS lineups? Before locking in any NFL DFS picks for Giants vs. Washington on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure

McClure is a predictive data engineer and pro DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action in every game, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account.

In Week 1 on Sunday Night Football, McClure had Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford as one of his top NFL DFS picks for both FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Stafford had 321 passing yards and three touchdowns, returning 24.34 points on FanDuel and 27.3 points on DraftKings. Anybody who had him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, McClure has turned his attention to Giants vs. Washington and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks for Thursday Night Football. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks for Washington vs. Giants

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Thursday is Washington running back Antonio Gibson. The second-year back accounted for nearly half of Washington’s scrimmage yards in Week 1, as he rushed for 90 while also catching three passes for 18. No other WFT running back had more than two carries, so Gibson is the clear lead-back after offseason speculation that Washington may reduce his snaps.

Gibson’s 20 carries tied a career-high, but even more encouraging was that he was targeted a team-high five times. Backup running back J.D. McKissic led the NFL last season with the most targets among running backs (110), but he only had one pass thrown his way in Week 1. With a backup quarterback, there could be plenty of short check-down passes to Gibson, so you can see why McClure is high on him for Thursday.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Giants receiver Sterling Shepard, who had seven grabs for 113 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. Much was made about the team signing Kenny Golladay in the offseason, but Shepard operated as New York’s No. 1 receiver in the opening week. His 58 snaps led all Giants’ skill position players, as did his targets (nine), receptions (seven), receiving yards (113) and receiving touchdowns (one).

Dating back to last year, Shepard has scored in three straight games for just the second time in his NFL career. He also has back-to-back 100-yard receiving games for the first time since putting on a Giants uniform. With Golladay and Saquon Barkley being eased back into action following injuries, Shepard is taking advantage of additional opportunities and should heavily factor into Thursday’s Giants vs. Washington DFS lineups.
