Buffalo rookie running back James Cook has had limited opportunities as a star running back on the Bills’ offense, but for the season he’s averaging 5.6 yards per carry. Although he appeared to have held off Nyheim Hines on the depth chart, he was unable to pass Devin Singletary as a full-time starter. Singletary rushed for 72 yards against the Lions on Thanksgiving Day, but should he be your pick to return to the NFL DFS rosters on Thursday night against New England? What NFL DFS stacks should you create and what NFL DFS strategy should you follow?

Top NFL DFS picks for Bills vs. Patriots
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Thursday Night Football is Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson. Last week, in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Patriots gave up their rushing offense and Stevenson finished with just 36 yards, but he still averaged 5.14 yards per carry. With six games left this season, Stevenson has already surpassed his rushing total from last year with 680 yards and four touchdowns.
In his only game against Buffalo in the regular season, Stevenson ran the ball 24 times for 78 yards. In New England’s 47-17 playoff loss to Buffalo last year, he finished with just 27 yards rushing, but he also had four receptions for 33 yards. Jamaal Williams was able to record 66 yards rushing with a touchdown and 27 yards through the air against Buffalo last week.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes lining up Bills wide receiver Gabe Davis. He had four receptions for 38 yards at Thanksgiving against Detroit. Davis has the highest target depth (15.9) of any player with at least 50 targets this season and the New England defense has allowed the second-highest average target depth for opposing offenses.
Davis has the longest reception of any player this season, a 98-yard touchdown against the Steelers in Week 5. Since Week 10, he has 15 catches on 22 targets for 199 yards and a touchdown. You can see the rest of McClure’s NFL DFS tips here.
