In the Broncos vs. Seahawks Week 1 Monday Night Football matchup, Kaylor listed Denver wide receiver Jerry Jeudy as one of his top Showdown DFS picks. The result: Jeudy hauled in 4 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown and was the highest scoring fantasy player in the game.

In the Week 2 Monday night double-header, Kaylor called for a huge night from Buffalo wide receiver Stefon Diggs. The two-time Pro Bowler would go on to catch 12 passes for 148 yards and 3 touchdowns, and was the highest scoring player DFS player on the slate.

Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to Steelers vs. Browns on Week 3 Thursday Night Football and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks.

We can tell you that one of Kaylor's top NFL DFS picks for the Browns-Steelers TNF matchup is Cleveland Pro Bowl running back Nick Chubb. "Nick Chubb is the highest-priced player in this game, and will likely be chalk, but I expect him to 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."

Kaylor is also targeting another under-the-radar option for TNF who could post HUGE numbers and carry your lineups to victory on Thursday night. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any lineups.
