Thursday Night Football DFS Roundup: Buccaneers vs. Cowboys


The first day of the NFL season starts off with a bang! Reigning Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host “America’s Team” the Dallas Cowboys. Naturally, week 1 Thursday night football would not be complete without DFS. Thursday night DFS is one of the most fun ways to welcome the new season.

To get us started, Beer Life Sports’ Jack Garry has given us his Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers DFS picks for this Thursday’s game. Moreover, DFS brings in tons of strategies to your teams. If you want to play DFS in smaller leagues, it would be wise to take safer approaches; typically smaller point totals win smaller matches. Consequentially, if you are doing the big tournaments and are looking to score big money, it would be wise to take shots on some cheaper players.

Keep these strategies in mind when building your teams. More often than not, the internet is an excellent resource to help you make informed decisions. That is why we at Beer Life created the NFL DFS roundup. Today and every week we will be putting out our best content, breaking down our DFS content, and comparing it to other industry experts. More often than not, you will see similarities between our content and others. Furthermore, we believe that transparency is the most important component in this business.

All of the prices you see below are via DraftKings. Bear in mind that these picks are made with DraftKings’ scoring in mind (full point PPR).

Worth noting, Captain’s get 1.5x points. Captain is only on DraftKings. This is similar to what FanDuel and Yahoo! use (“MVP” on FanDuel and “Superstar” on Yahoo!). Lastly, CAPTAIN’s are significantly more expensive than regular players.
