Thursday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Giants at Eagles

The Eagles may or may not have a bunch of their pass-catchers back for this game, they might have a two-QB rotation of sorts, and it's not at all clear how the backfield workload will be divided with Miles Sanders out.

Besides that, these Thursday night single-game contest lineups will be easy to build.

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 7 Thursday Night Football matchup. Constructing single-game lineups requires some imagination, especially for large-field tournament purposes.

We want to create a lineup that reflects a certain kind of game script, choosing players who would thrive—or at least have the chance to thrive—if their teams got out to a lead or were left chasing points in the second half. There’s also the neutral script that doesn't tend to inflate opportunity for any one player or team. Understanding the likelihood of each scenario and piecing together a roster that would score a bunch of points in such a scenario is key to success in these single-game contests.

Remember: For the captain spot on DraftKings, the price (and fantasy points awarded) are multiplied by 1.5. On FanDuel, the prices are the same throughout, but the MVP slot receives 1.5 times the fantasy point value of the other roster spots.

Vegas Spread And Total

This game has an ugly over/under of 44.5 points, which is dropped 0.5 points since the start of the week. The home-team Eagles have an implied total of 24.5 points and the Giants have a 20-point total. This one has classic Thursday Night Football game written all over it.
