2023 Hall of Fame Game | NFL DFS Preview

by Seth Woolcock

Professional football returns to its birthplace of Canton, Ohio, this week with the 2023 Hall of Fame Game! Get invested in the preseason action with our favorite NFL DFS lineup for the exhibition game.

Below is my favorite DFS lineup for Jets vs. Browns and some quick insight on what there’s to like about each player:

(Pricing courtesy of DraftKings)

Dorian Thompson-Robinson (QB, Cleveland Browns)

Dorian Thompson Robinson (DTR) is a true duel-threat QB, running for over 1,200 yards and throwing for 48 TDs in his last two seasons for the UCLA Bruins. Kellen Mond will garner the start in the Hall of Fame Game, leaving DTR to clean it up in the second half.

Chris Streveler (QB, New York Jets)

One-time Canadian Football player Chris Streveler will also play mop-up duty. The veteran, now in his fourth season, has thrown six TDs to just one interception throughout his preseason career. He also averages 4.2 rushes per game across performances. Streveler should have success playing against the worst of the worst in the Hall of Fame Game.

Cedric Tillman (WR, Cleveland Browns)

Third-round rookie WR Cedric Tillman played his high school football with DTR at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas. That connection could make an immediate impact as the 6 foot-3 inch, 213-pound WR attempts to shake defenders like he did at Tennesee in 2021 when he had over 1,000 receiving yards and 12 TDs.

Hassan Hall (RB, Cleveland Browns)

We won’t see Nick Chubb play and likely won’t see backup Jerome Ford either, as he’s dealing with personal matters. That leaves John Kelly Jr. as the starter and the chalky DFS play for the Hall of Fame Game. I will counter with the leverage option in Hassan Hall. The Undrafted Free Agent (UDFA) was known more as a bruiser during his time at Louisville. However, after transferring to Georgia Tech for his fifth year, he caught 28 receptions. I expect Hall to (wait if you’ve heard this before) see volume in the second half, making him an intriguing, low-rostered play.

Israel Abanikanda (RB, New York Jets)

There will be no Breece Hall in the Hall of Fame Game, and Michael Carter probably only plays a series or two, as well. Late-season breakout Zonovan Knight will get a ton of run here. However, I prefer rookie Israel Abanikanda out of Pittsburgh. He’s a big play waiting to happen. There’s a world where offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett uses him creatively in this game, similar to how he deployed Aaron Jones while in Green Bay.

Jason Brownlee (WR, New York Jets)

With early injuries to the Jets’ receiving corps, Jason Brownlee is impressing in training camp. The 6 foot-3 UDFA out of Southern Mississippi has great catch-point ability. His quickness off the line and 92nd percentile burst score make him an option for a house call at any time in the Hall Of Fame Game. Brownlee has been giving Jets’ cornerbacks Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed all they can handle. I believe he’ll be able to get the best of the Browns’ backups.

I’m excited for the Hall of Fame Game! I’m a Jets fan, so I’m rooting for them, but I’m also excited to see how the Browns do.
