Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys travel to Nashville to take on Joshua Dobbs and the Tennessee Titans to open the NFL Week 17 schedule on Thursday Night Football. Ryan Tannehill is out and Derrick Henry is doubtful for the Titans. Dobbs will be starting in place of struggling backup Malik Willis. Tony Pollard is out for Dallas. With Pollard sidelined, should Ezekiel Elliott be considered a must-start option in your TNF Showdown NFL DFS strategy? Or would it make sense to look at the other running backs, tight ends, wide receivers, or a D/ST in the TNF NFL DFS player pool? CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Dalton Schultz, Noah Brown, Hassan Haskins, Julius Chestnut, Treylon Burks, and Robert Woods all project to be impact classic and showdown NFL DFS picks for Thursday Night Football.

Top NFL DFS picks for Titans vs. Cowboys on TNF
One of Kaylor's favorite DFS picks for the Dallas vs. Tennessee showdown slate on Thursday Night Football is Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. The former Oklahoma standout has developed into one of the most explosive and dynamic wide receivers in the NFL today, and is having the best season of his young professional career. Entering Week 17, Lamb has caught 91 passes for 1,207 yards and eight touchdowns. Kaylor is expecting Lamb's recent run of success to continue on Thursday Night Football.
"On paper, this matchup looks outstanding for CeeDee Lamb and the Dallas passing attack. Tennessee has one of the best rushing defenses in the NFL, but has been highly susceptible against the pass. Lamb has been on a tear hauling in 17 passes for 246 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games. My biggest concern is that Dallas will jump out to a big early lead with Tennessee being decimated by injuries. Still, I expect Lamb to be active early and notch his third consecutive 100-yard receiving performance," Kaylor told SportsLine. You can see the rest of Kaylor's NFL DFS picks here.
