Happy Thanksgiving, Bruno Boys Nation! It’s Turkey Day this Thursday and while many things are different this year, one thing we can count on is the Cowboys and Lions hosting games to kick off the holiday. There would have been a third game to look at too but the Steelers-Ravens game was postponed until Sunday due to COVID-19 concerns. We’re looking at all the Starts we’re recommending just for the two Thanksgiving games and will look at the rest of the recommendations later in the week.

QB Starts: Alex Smith, Washington Football Team at Dallas Cowboys
If we’re looking at a numbers guy, Alex Smith is not the guy. Yet, when looking for a quarterback who has the best matchups, it’s hard to avoid starting Smith if you’re in need of a Super Flex, or a second QB in a two-quarterback league.
The Cowboys have allowed QBs to throw multiple touchdowns in five straight games, including back-to-back games allowing both Ben Roethlisberger and Kirk Cousins to throw over 300 yards and three touchdowns. Now, Smith’s success depends on the health of Terry McLaurin (ankle) who is questionable for Thursday. If he can go, start Smith in that super flex.
