The Texans showed their faith in Deshaun Watson with a four-year, $160 million extension over the Labor Day weekend. He’ll continue his impressive career when Chiefs vs. Texans gets underway at 8:20 p.m. ET in the 2020 NFL Kickoff Game on Thursday. He could be one of the most popular NFL DFS picks in a matchup that’s full of stars with big-play capabilities. Which NFL DFS stacks can carry you to victory?

Watson could be a solid building block for single-game NFL DFS lineups, but there are plenty of daily Fantasy football picks to choose from on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings 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 Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. The fourth-year pro has been one of the league’s most consistent quarterbacks over the past two years. He completed almost 68 percent of his passes for over 8,000 yards and 52 touchdowns during that span.

Watson is a constant threat with his feet as well, scoring 12 combined rushing touchdowns over the past two seasons. With William Hill listing Kansas City as a 9.5-point favorite with an over-under of 54, game flow could certainly help Watson’s NFL DFS projections if he has to play from behind. McClure has taken all that into account and recommends Watson as one of his top NFL DFS picks for Week 1.

McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy for Thursday Night Football also includes rostering Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. A former track star who won gold in the 4×100 relay at the World Junior Championship in 2012, Hill has become one of the NFL’s preeminent deep threats thanks to 4.29-second speed in the 40-yard-dash. 

But he’s proven he’s more than just speed in four years with the Chiefs, catching 281 passes for 4,115 yards and 32 touchdowns the last four seasons while adding 71 carries for 500 yards and four more scores. Hill has also added five return touchdowns and is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. Considering he was targeted 10 times and finished with five receptions for 80 yards and two touchdowns in last year’s regular-season matchup with Houston in his first game back from a shoulder injury, he’s a good bet to be featured heavily on Thursday.

How to set Chiefs vs. Texans DFS lineups
