Welcome to the NFL DFS Playbook for Thanksgiving Day!

This is one of the most popular slates to play which is why it gets its very own playbook. If you've been with Fantasy Alarm all year, you know how we feel about contest selection on short slates and it doesn't change at all. Three games means strictly GPP tournaments for me. There is just way too much overlap in cash games which raises the paylines and after what we've seen with the lineup-sharing in cash games over the last few weeks, the paylines for cash games could really climb. My recommendation is to stay with the single-entry GPP tournaments. The payouts may not be as big as they are in the multi-entry contests, but if you're playing contests with a $10 entry or less entrance fee, the playing field is a little more level and you're competing against 5,000 people, not 50,000.

Let's take a look at who we like the most...
