DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Helper for Week 12
The Thanksgiving holiday brings an interesting slate of games this week, as all NFL teams have now gone through their bye weeks. Thursday presents a three-game slate beginning with Philadelphia at Detroit, then Carolina at Dallas, before finishing the day with Chicago visiting Green Bay. Taking a look at the early Vegas lines, 9 of the 16 games this week are projected to be within 3-points with only 3 potential blowouts. Whether you're jumping in some of the early Thanksgiving slates or waiting until the weekend, we'll take a look at which studs, value plays, and wildcards you should target this week.
Remember, as a rule of thumb with PPR scoring, you want your players to hit three times their value; that is to say for each $1,000 in salary, we want that player to achieve three fantasy points (If Cam Newton has a $7,000 salary, we want him to hit 21 fantasy points to be considered worthy of rostering).
Here, we'll also take a look at Guaranteed Prize Pool (GPP) players with the potential to surpass that threshold while being lower owned compared to the rest of the players at his position.
Of course, numberFire also offers a great tool for premium members, allowing you to build customizable lineups by inputting your players and seeing what our projections offer for the week. There's even an optimization function that'll use our algorithms to help fill out the rest of your daily lineup and give you the best chance of succeeding on game day.
Using Vegas spreads and totals, our Net Expected Points (NEP) metric, and some daily fantasy gamesmanship, let's take a look at which players you should target this weekend.
