The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers were set to face off in Thursday’s final Thanksgiving game, but Covid-19 has pushed the game back three times to Wednesday afternoon. Kickoff is set for 3:40 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on NBC. We’ve identified several interesting DFS value options on DraftKings. Here’s who we think you should keep an eye on.

Anthony McFarland, Steelers, $2,600

James Conner has been placed on the Covid-19 injured reserve list and that leaves McFarland and Benny Snell as the Steelers top two backs. Snell is likely to get the bulk of the work, but he’s not a good value as an $8,800 flex. If you want to find some extra money, roll the dice on a cheap McFarland play in anticipation of him getting a little more work than people think.

Devin Duvernay, Ravens, WR, $3,200

Duvernay isn’t a regular out wide but has the blazing speed to make plays we he does get chances. The speedy kick returner offers special teams upside and occasionally gets carries on end-arounds. If Duvernay gets into space he can eat up yardage in a hurry.

Ray-Ray McCloud, Steelers, WR, $1,200

The Steelers have plenty of receivers more capable than McCloud but he’s managed to tally a catch in five straight games while competing with JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, and Chase Claypool. Don’t expect a ton from McCloud, but he give’s you a good chance at getting you a couple points for close to nothing. Think of him as punt for if you’ve exhausted all of your salary elsewhere.
