Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson were among the top-scoring Fantasy quarterbacks last season. Daily Fantasy football players will now need to figure out how they factor into their NFL DFS strategy as Chiefs vs. Texans opens the 2020 NFL schedule on Thursday, Sept. 10. Mahomes has most of his familiar targets back, while Watson will begin life without star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was traded to the Cardinals in the offseason.

How do those quarterbacks fit into NFL DFS lineups for Texans vs. Chiefs? And which other players need to be included in your top NFL DFS picks for Week 1? Before setting any Thursday Night Football DFS lineups for Texans vs. Chiefs, be sure to see the latest NFL DFS advice from SportsLine’s Mike McClure. He’s won almost $2 million as a daily Fantasy pro, and his top NFL DFS picks, stacks and player pool can help you separate from the pack in Week 1.

He’s crushed his NFL DFS picks in 2019, finishing as high as the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings and returning as much as 40x return in some higher-stakes tournaments. He then continued his roll in the postseason, cashing on every single lineup he posted for the divisional round. Anyone who followed him saw some huge returns.

Now, he has turned his attention to the Chiefs vs. Texans DFS player pool and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks for Chiefs vs. Texans 

One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for NFL Opening Night 2020 is Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Last season, Mahomes and Watson had an epic back-and-forth during the regular season that ended in a 31-24 victory for the Texans, but Mahomes threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns and followed that up with an even better performance in the AFC Divisional Round. 

Mahomes threw for 321 yards and five touchdowns in that game, while adding 53 yards rushing in a 51-31 win for the Chiefs. With plenty of speed at Mahomes’ disposal with Hill, Watkins, Hardman and Demarcus Robinson out wide and Travis Kelce providing a security blanket in the middle of the field, Mahomes is the top option for Texans vs. Chiefs DFS lineups on Sept. 10.

McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy for Thursday Night Football also includes rostering Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. Daily Fantasy NFL players got a scare when he pulled up with a hamstring issue in practice in mid-August, but he was back on the field doing individual drills a few days later, meaning his status for the 2020 NFL opener looks extremely promising. 

Hill’s season-long numbers dipped last year after he missed time with a shoulder injury, but when he’s been on the field, he’s been perhaps the most explosive receiver in the league over the past three seasons. The Texans, meanwhile, were burned by opposing receivers last year, ranking 29th in pass defense, giving up week-winning numbers to players like Keenan Allen (13-183-2) and A.J. Brown (8-114-1), among others.
