Top NFL DFS picks for Steelers vs. Browns on TNF

One player Kaylor will be definitely be backing in his Steelers vs. Browns TNF DFS picks is Cleveland running back Nick Chubb. The 26-year-old running back ranks second in the NFL in rushing yards (228) and first in rushing TDs (3) through two weeks, and should get another heavy workload against the Steelers on Thursday night. In a game that projects to be low scoring and physical, Kaylor is projecting Chubb to be a DFS must-start. 

“Nick Chubb is the highest-priced player in this game and will likely be chalk, but I expect him to also be the highest DFS scorer in this matchup. Cleveland’s already strong offensive line will be even better with Jack Conklin returning to action, and the team clearly wants to avoid putting the game into Jacoby Brissett’s hands. I’m projecting 20 or more touches for Chubb on Thursday night. If Cleveland jumps out to an early lead like I expect they will, it could be a monster night for Chubb when it’s all said and done.” You can see the rest of Kaylor’s NFL DFS picks here.
