Joe Flacco vs. Houston Texans: Joe Flacco has not been close to the performer that we have seen in previous seasons, but he has been slowly picking it up in recent weeks. He’s thrown for at least one score in four straight games, and he now gets a matchup against a Texans defense that is allowing the most points per game to opposing quarterbacks. If there is one game this season to slip Flacco into your DFS lineups, this could be the one. He will return his value, which could be to the tune of 275 yards passing with at least two scores.
Eddie Lacy @ San Francisco 49ers: Running backs in the Seahawks backfield are dropping like flies, and the coaching staff has to keep coming back to Eddie Lacy. With a steady number of touches against the league’s worst defense versus opposing running backs, he could provide you with a safe floor. In a game in which the Seahawks should be comfortably ahead, don’t be shocked if Lacy goes for 85 yards and at least one score. He’s definitely worth the value in DFS for Week 12.
Cooper Kupp vs. New Orleans Saints: With Robert Woods missing this game, Kupp will slide nicely into a role as a go-to receiver in a potentially high-scoring game. He has back to back games with at least six catches, and he should again hit that mark in Week 12. Look for Kupp to bring in seven catches for 105 yards and a touchdown against the Saints. He will likely be a very popular option in DFS this week, but he will be worth the investment.
Eric Ebron vs. Minnesota Vikings: Eric Ebron’s targets have started to become quite consistent over the last few games, and in this matchup against the Vikings, he could be heavily relied on in the passing game. The Vikings cornerbacks play very strong coverage on outside receivers, leaving the middle of the field the place to exploit. I expect Matt Stafford to do just that. Look for Ebron to go for five catches, 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 12. He will also be a very sneaky option in DFS with many owners overlooking him.
Nick Rose vs. New York Giants: The Giants have all but given up on the season, and with the Redskins offense starting to find its rhythm lately, this has all the makings of being a high-scoring affair. That means plenty of opportunities for Rose to pile up points. Rose comes at a cheap price for good value in DFS, so plug him into your lineup.
Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos: The Broncos have decided to go with Paxton Lynch to try and right the ship this week, and it will likely blow up in their face. Much like Nathan Peterman’s horrific game last week, Lynch could be a turnover machine in Week 12. That makes the Raiders a very intriguing option in DFS this week.
