Two historic franchises clash when the Dallas Cowboys battle the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2021 NFL Hall of Fame Game on Thursday. Dallas has had a disappointing 6-10 season while Pittsburgh lost 4-12 a year ago but lost in the first round of the playoffs. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott isn’t expected to hit the field, which means backups Garrett Gilbert and Ben DiNucci could be some of the best NFL DFS picks for the 2021 NFL Hall of Fame Game. Gilbert’s only appearance in 2020 came against the Steelers, a game in which he threw 243 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Should you include Gilbert as part of your NFL DFS strategy or should you look for value elsewhere in the Steelers vs. Cowboys DFS player pool?

The best NFL DFS picks for the 2021 Hall of Fame game
One of Engel’s top NFL DFS picks for the 2021 NFL Hall of Fame Game is Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The former first-round pick competes with Mason Rudolph and Joshua Dobbs for the backup quarterback job in Pittsburgh. Haskins now has a fresh start in Pittsburgh, where he will seek to revive the success he had at Ohio State. In his only season as a starter for the Buckeyes, Haskins threw 50 touchdowns in 2018. He could get the most reps at the quarterback on Thursday, which is one of the main reasons Engel advises owners to include him on their NFL DFS lineups. Part of Engel’s optimal NFL DFS strategy is to set up the Steelers who run Anthony McFarland back, who could get the bulk of the workload against the cowboys. Pittsburgh selected running back Najee Harris with the 24th McFarland may have a small advantage as he will be reunited with offensive coordinator Matt Canada in 2021, who served in Maryland in the same position when the running back ran 1,034 yards in 2018.
