Which NFL DFS picks can you turn to as lineup building blocks for tournaments on daily Fantasy sites like FanDuel or DraftKings? And which undervalued players can give the salary cap flexibility needed to build a stacked roster? Before crafting your NFL DFS strategy for Sunday Night Football, be sure to see the NFL DFS advice, player rankings and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million.
McClure 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.
In Week 16, McClure had Saints running back Alvin Kamara as one of his top NFL DFS picks for both FanDuel and DraftKings: The result: Kamara tied an NFL record with six rushing touchdowns, returning over 50 points on both sites! Anybody who had him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to Sunday Night Football and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.

One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Sunday Night Football is Eagles running back Boston Scott. Scott is expected to be the lead back for Philadelphia after Miles Sanders was ruled out with a knee injury. Scott averaged 12 carries for 50.3 rushing yards in the three other games Sanders has missed this season.
Washington is giving up 112.5 yards per game on the ground this season and the Football Team has allowed a rushing touchdown in each of their last three games. Scott is among the top value picks for Sunday Night Football, so confidently lock him in your NFL DFS lineups and look for a big return.
Part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts. The rookie QB is coming off a strong showing in last week's loss against Dallas, completing 21-of-39 passes for 342 yards and a touchdown, while adding 69 rushing yards on nine carries. Hurts set a new career high in passing yards against Dallas (342) and he's thrown for 338 or more yards in each of his last two outings.
Through three games as Philadelphia's starter, Hurts has completed 54.9 percent of his passes for 847 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. He's also been lethal with his legs, rushing for 238 yards and a score. He's averaging 7.7 yards per pass attempt this season and he's scored at least 20 points on DraftKings in all three of his starts. Lock him in as one of the top overall NFL DFS picks on Sunday night.
