NFL DFS, Jets vs. Colts: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks for Thursday Night Football

NFL DFS players can get off to a profitable start with a Thursday Night Football showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets. Thursday’s slate brings plenty of tough questions for daily Fantasy football players as they set their NFL DFS lineups. Should you go with a proven option like Colts wide receiver Michael Piitman Jr., who has scored three touchdowns in his last two games, or should you roll the dice on a cheaper, high-upside option like Jets running back Ty Johnson, who finished with over 85 all-purpose yards and a touchdown last week against the Bengals?

With FanDuel hosting a $750K NFL Special and DraftKings running a $1.5M Thursday Night Showdown that awards $500K to the winner, there will be difficult decisions while setting your NFL DFS strategy. Before locking in your NFL DFS picks for Jets vs. Colts, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1 percent in more than a dozen other tournaments last season.

He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.

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

Top NFL DFS picks for Jets vs. Colts

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Thursday Night Football is Colts running back Jonathan Taylor. Indianapolis’ tailback enters Thursday’s matchup second in the NFL with 649 rushing yards. He also ranks seventh in the NFL averaging 5.4 yards per carry and he’s been a consistent scoring threat in recent weeks.

In fact, Taylor has scored seven total touchdowns in his last five games and has a strong opportunity to find the end zone again on Thursday Night Football. That’s because the Jets are giving up 390.4 yards per game to opposing offenses and gave up one rushing and one receiving touchdown to Bengals running back Joe Mixon last week. Lock Taylor in your NFL DFS lineups and look for a big return against New York.

Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Jets quarterback Mike White, who last week became the second QB in NFL history to throw for 400 yards in his first career start. White was a fifth-round pick in 2018, but didn’t make his NFL debut until replacing Wilson last Sunday.

The Colts’ defense has been shredded by opposing quarterbacks this year and just allowed Ryan Tannehill to throw for three touchdowns. That marked the sixth time in eight games that Indianapolis allowed the other team’s quarterback to toss multiple TD passes.

How to set NFL DFS lineups for Colts vs. Jets

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Thursday Night Football. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
