Thursday night football

  • Keenan Allen is listed at $11,000 on DraftKings.
  • Nelson Agholor is priced at $7,400 at fantasy football sites.
  • Draftkings have Hunter Henry priced at $5,800.

LAS VEGAS — Week 15 of the NFL season is set to kick off with a Thursday Night Football matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Las Vegas Raiders. With this being the only matchup of the night, there are plenty of single-game showdown tournaments that DraftKings has to offer.

The main thing that daily fantasy football GMs should keep an eye out for when creating their lineups should be value players. These are players that offer tremendous value no matter what they are priced at.

Keenan Allen, WR, $11,000

Keenan Allen could be the most valued player in this game as he will be the best receiver on the field on Thursday night. Ever since Justin Herbert took over at quarterback, he has offered tremendous WR1 value and has not disappointed all season long.

He has a nice matchup here with the Raiders defense that ranks 22 in the league against opposing wide receivers. In the Raiders last two games, they have allowed the opposing WR1 to go for over 50 yards and two touchdowns in each game.

In Allen’s last time out against the Raiders, he put up a nice outing as he went for 103 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions. That being said, not only does he offer tremendous fantasy value, but NFL bettors can also find value for him on legal sports betting sites when betting on his totals.

Nelson Agholor, WR, $7,400

Nelson Agholor has looked like the true WR1 this season for the Raiders and especially in his last four games. He has seen nine or more targets in three of those games and has made the most out of them as in two of them he posted over 20 fantasy points.

Here in his Week 15 matchup with the Chargers, he will likely get even more loos than he usually does with Raiders rookie wide receiver, Henry Ruggs, placed on the COVID-19 list.

Also, the Chargers defense is fresh off of a game where they allowed the opposing WR1 to go for 124 yards and a touchdown. That being said, Agholor could be fired up in all formats as he is being set up for a nice day.

Hunter Henry, TE, $5,800

In a tight end position that has been terrible all throughout the NFL, Hunter Henry has managed to turn out a solid season thus far.

His fantasy value has risen over his last five games as he has scored in double-digit fantasy points in four of those games. He has also seen six or more targets in four of the five games as well.

His matchup with the Raiders also is not all that bad as in their last three games, they have allowed the tight end position to go for over 48 yards in two of those games on multiple receptions. Also, not to mention, Chargers wideout, Mike Williams is listed as questionable and if he does not suit up, Henry would certainly draw more targets.
