Best NFL DFS Week 12 Plays

Updated:

Get the best NFL DFS Week 12 plays here at Sports Hub. We analyze the price points at DraftKings and FanDuel to uncover the best stacks, studs, value plays and bargain bin plays for NFL DFS Week 12.

In Week 11, we had the QB2 (Brock Purdy), QB7 and QB10. At RB, we only had the RB8 (Breece Hall). At WR, we hit on Tank Dell (WR3), Brandon Aiyuk (WR5), Amon-Ra St. Brown (WR8) and Jayden Reed (WR11). Reed was one of my bargain bin plays. I also hit on George Kittle (TE1) and TE7. I also had the DST3 (Dallas Cowboys). RB wasn’t great in Week 11 for us, but we did great at every other position.

There are some huge DFS contests at DK and FD on Thanksgiving Day. Since there are three games on Thursday and one game on Friday, there are only ten games on the main slate for Sunday.

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 12 plays:

Best Stacks for NFL DFS Week 12

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 12 stacks:

  • Josh Allen ($8.1K DK / $9.2K FD) / Stefon Diggs ($8.8K DK / $8.7K FD)

The Bills have a new offensive coordinator. His first game was last week. Allen went 20/32 for 275 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT (23.5 FPs on DK/FD). It was the first time he tossed three TDs since Week 4. This week could end up being a shootout against Philly. The Eagles are allowing 248.1 PYPG (27th).

Diggs has struggled the last two weeks and hasn’t exceeded seven FPs on DK or five FPs on FD. He had eight targets last week, but only hauled in four for 27 yards. Look for Allen to ensure Diggs gets involved against the Eagles this week. Allen and Diggs could be QB1/WR1 for NFL DFS Week 12.

  • Baker Mayfield ($5.5K DK / $6.8K FD) / Mike Evans ($7.4K DK / $8K FD)

Mayfield scored 12.34 FPs (DK) and 11.34 FPs (FD) last week, but that was against SF. Prior to that, he had scored 19+ FPs in three consecutive games. Mayfield has 15 TD passes and only six INTs. Mayfield doesn’t have the highest ceiling, but when you’re getting him at $5.5K on DK, there’s value in the savings.

Evans is one of the most consistent WRs the NFL has ever seen. Evans has scored a touchdown in four of his last five games. He has only had 100+ receiving yards in a game twice this season. The Bucs play the Colts on Sunday. The Colts are allowing 228.8 PYPG (18th) and 24.8 PPG (26th).

Best Studs for NFL DFS Week 12

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 12 studs at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST:

  • QB: C.J. Stroud ($7.7K DK / $7.7K FD)

Stroud is the real deal. He struggled with INTs last week (3), but he still scored 21.34 FPs (DK) and 18.34 FPs (FD). Stroud threw for 300+ yards for the third consecutive game. Stroud has thrown 2+ passing TDs in six of ten games this season. He also has two rushing TDs in Houston’s last four games.

Potential Stack: Tank Dell ($6.9K DK / $7.8K FD)

  • RB: Alvin Kamara ($8.4K DK / $8.7K FD)

Kamara is one of the best options at RB for NFL DFS Week 12, as he’s so active in the passing game. He has 3+ receptions in every game and 7+ receptions in four of seven games. He still hasn’t rushed for 100 yards in a game yet. The Falcons are allowing 108.4 RYPG (14th). If Kamara scores, he’ll be a great play.

  • WR: A.J. Brown ($9K DK / $8.8K FD)

There isn’t a lot to like at the top end of WRs for NFL DFS Week 12. Brown is in a tough matchup against the Bills who are only allowing 204.2 PYPG (10th). Brown is coming off his worst game of the season. He had one reception (four targets) for eight yards. I expect him to bounce back with 20+ FPs on Sunday.

  • TE: Dalton Kincaid ($5.3K DK / $6K FD)

Kincaid has carved out a nice role with the Bills as the season has progressed. Kincaid has 6+ targets in his last five games. He only had six targets once in his first five games. He has scored double-digit FPs in his last five games on DK. If he finds the end zone, he can score around 20 FPs, which is good value.

  • DST: Cleveland Browns ($3.8K DK / $4.8K FD)

The Browns take on the Broncos in NFL DFS Week 12 action. The Browns DST have scored 15+ FPs in three of their last five games. The Browns defense has two INTs in three of their last four games and 3+ sacks in three consecutive games. Denver are going to struggle to move the football against this defense.

Best Value Plays for NFL DFS Week 12

Here are the best NFL DFS Week 12 value plays at QB, RB, WR, TE and DST:

  • QB: Tommy DeVito ($5.2K DK / $6.6K FD)

DeVito went 18/26 for 246 yards and 3 TDs last week against the Commanders (22.54 FPs on DK/FD). He’s expected to start again for the Giants this week against the Patriots. The Patriots allow 228.8 PYPG (18th). DeVito has nothing to lose and I expect him to air it out. He doesn’t need a lot of FPs to hit value.

Potential Stack: Wan’Dale Robinson ($3.8K DK / $5.2K FD)

  • RB: Derrick Henry ($6.4K DK / $7.8K FD)

Henry is a better value on DK, but this could be a ceiling game for him. The Panthers allow 129.4 RYPG (24th) and have a weak offense. Henry has been limited to 21 carries the last two weeks because of game script (losing big). Tennessee need to ride Henry and he’ll crush value for NFL DFS Week 12.

  • WR: Josh Downs ($4.8K DK / $5.9K FD)

Downs got banged up in Week 9 and had a poor outing in Week 10 (two receptions for 28 yards). Indy are coming off a bye week and Downs should be ready to go. He has 30+ FPs upside as a ceiling and at this price, he’s great for big GPPs. The Buccaneers are allowing 270.7 PYPG (31st).

  • TE: Hunter Henry ($3.4K DK / $5.2K FD)

Henry relies on scoring a TD to hit value, but that’s the case with all cheap TEs. Henry has scored three TDs this season and scored double-digit FPs in those games. The Giants allow 236.5 PYPG (22nd). He has had 5+ targets in each of the last two games and he remains a focal point in the passing attack.

  • DST: Atlanta Falcons ($2.9K DK / $3.8K FD)

The Falcons play the Saints and Derek Carr is still in concussion protocol currently. He might start and I’d still like this play if he does, but Jameis Winston could start. Winston entered the team’s Week 10 game halfway through the third quarter and he tossed two INTs.  It could be a big game for the Atlanta DST.

Best Bargain Bin Sleepers for NFL DFS Week 12

Here are the best bargain bin sleepers for NFL DFS Week 12 (one RB and one WR):

  • Jaylen Warren ($5.4K DK / $6.9K FD)

Warren has been on a tear and I expect that to continue for NFL DFS Week 12. Warren had his best game of the season last week. He rushed for 129 yards and 1 TD on just nine carries. That’s his second consecutive game with 100+ rushing yards and 1 TD. The Bengals allow 138.3 RYPG (31st).

  • WR: Jonathan Mingo ($3.3K DK / $5.1K FD)

Mingo hasn’t had a breakout game all season, but that could change in NFL DFS Week 12. He has had 13 targets in the last two games, but only four receptions for 26 yards. The Titans allow 230.8 PYPG (20th). If Bryce Young can start hitting Mingo in stride, he could explode for a big game.
