“The Coaches Playbook” – Thanksgiving Day Slate Review

I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving! As far as a football aspect, it’s unfortunate we did not get football through the whole day, but both stayed close throughout and made them watchable.

Chalk hit pretty heavy today in both the main slate and showdowns, so let’s take a look at who our coaches picks went!

Deshaun Watson was a favorable pick from the coaches as he racked up 36.12 DraftKings fantasy points and 33.12 FanDuel fantasy points. He was our no brainer cash quarterback on this slate.

Both @HQGolfGuy and @bellmar21 also had Watson as their tournament play and as the highest scoring quarterback he showed he was the play in all formats. @snoopAloop_3’s pick of Amari Cooper (26.2 DK FP | 20.2 FD FP) was solid along with @VGo07’s Duke Johnson (17 DK FP | 15.5 FD FP) call.

Houston was the stack of the day with Watson, Will Fuller and Duke Johnson as called by @HQGolfGuy, @bellmar21 and @VGo07.

@bellmar21 and @VGo07 had the game stack of the day was from the Houston and Detroit game highlighted by the Watson to Fuller combination.

Adrian Peterson (17.5 DK FP) was @bellmar21’s value play of the day on DraftKings and @HQGolfGuy’s pick of Logan Thomas tallied 13.42 fantasy points. Keke Coute missed a few opportunities for touchdowns which would have tabbed him as a great value on both sites.
