The pivotal third weekend of the 2019 NFL preseason rolls on Friday evening with two games — Browns vs. Buccaneers at 7:30 p.m. ET and Lions vs. Bills at 8 p.m. ET. NFL DFS players will especially have a close eye on the earlier game as the much-hyped Browns’ offense takes on a Tampa Bay defense that was among the worst in the league last season. But with just two games on the slate, and coaches still mixing in plenty of backups on this dress rehearsal weekend, NFL DFS players have some tough calls for daily Fantasy contests on sites such as FanDuel or DraftKings. Before finalizing your own NFL DFS picks for Friday, first be sure see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s won almost $2 million in his career as a DFS pro, and his optimal NFL DFS lineups and advice can help you set your strategy on Friday evening. 

McClure uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best values and create optimal NFL DFS lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NFL DFS player. 

McClure rolled through the 2018 NFL season, cashing in the top 5 percent of tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings multiple times. His optimal lineups cashed as high as the top 0.1 percent on FanDuel and as high as the top 1 percent on DraftKings. He’s made some spot-on selections in the preseason thus far as well, rostering 49ers receiver Jalen Hurd on both sites in Week 1, when he caught two touchdown passes, and Steelers receiver James Washington (four catches, 78 yards) in Week 2. Anyone who has followed McClure’s Fantasy football picks has seen some huge returns. Now, he’s turned his attention to Friday’s games in Week 3 of the preseason. 

For Friday’s action, where every player on FanDuel is $6,000 and every player on DraftKings is $5,500, we can tell you one of McClure’s top preseason NFL DFS picks is Bills quarterback Josh Allen. The second-year pro out of Wyoming returned huge value for DFS players late last season as he piled up yards and touchdowns both as a passer and runner. He rushed for 95 yards or more in four of the final six games last year. Though he’s entrenched as the starter heading into 2019, it’s likely that the Bills will still want to get him several series of action in this final tune-up for the starters in the preseason, so NFL DFS players can look for big returns as he takes on the Lions on Friday. 

Part of his optimal NFL DFS strategy for Friday also includes rostering Buccaneers wide receiver Justin Watson, who has six catches in the preseason thus far and should get extra reps on Friday against the Browns with Mike Evans (quad/groin) ruled out. With DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries leaving via free agency over the offseason, the Bucs are expected to get Watson, a 2018 fifth-round pick out of Penn, more involved in what could be one of the most prolific passing games in the league. And with an over-under of 45 points for Browns vs. Buccaneers, a high total for the preseason, Watson should see plenty of red-zone opportunities in this matchup. 

McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers on Friday because of a dream matchup. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing.
