Buffalo rookie running back James Cook has had limited opportunities as a running back on the Bills offense, but he’s averaging 5.6 yards-per-carry for the season. Although he appears to have fended off Nyheim Hines on the depth chart, he failed 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 when running back against New England on Thursday night’s NFL DFS lineups?

The best NFL DFS tips 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 frantic attack 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 totals from last year with 680 yards and four touchdowns.
In his only game against Buffalo of the regular season, Stevenson ran 24 times for 78 yards. In New England’s 47-17 playoff loss to Buffalo last year, he finished with just 27 yards on the ground, but he also had four receptions for 33 yards. Jamaal Williams had 66 rushing yards on a touchdown and 27 yards through the air against Buffalo last week.
One of McClure’s best NFL DFS strategies is to include Bill’s wide receiver Gabe Davis. He had four receptions for 38 yards on Thanksgiving against Detroit. Davis has the highest depth of aim (15.9) of any player with at least 50 goals this season, and the New England defense has allowed the second-highest average depth of aim for opposing attacks.
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 had 15 catches on 22 goals for 199 yards and a touchdown. You can see the rest of McClure’s NFL DFS advice here.
