We are heading into the home stretch in the 2016 NFL season so it’s time for Daily Fantasy Football players to turn it up a notch. DFS Week 12 offers some fun and exciting games from Carolina @ Oakland to Arizona @ Atlanta. While Sunday’s schedule is lighter due to the three Thanksgiving games, there are still plenty of great match ups. In this article I will break down the highest scoring games of the week. Daily Fantasy Football players should be getting ready for a fun week ahead.
The Panthers face an absolute must win on Sunday when they visit the 1st place Raiders. Both defenses aren’t great so Daily Fantasy Football players all over should be excited for this matchup. Points should be put up at will on Sunday, so I will be playing a bunch of players here.
Cam has left Daily Fantasy Football players shaking their heads for most of the 2016 NFL season. After a monster season in 2015 Cam has struggled this year. This week he faces a Raiders defense which is ranked 24/32 against opposing quarterbacks. Its time to put up or shut up for Cam Newton this week. I like Cam to break out this week and return to the old Cam.
Kelvin has also struggled this season coming back form a knee injury. I think this is the week he breaks out just like his QB. Benjamin faces the Raiders secondary which is ranked 27/32 against opposing wide receivers. The Cam/Kelvin combo should return to form on Sunday.
Sorry if I sound like a broken record, but Olsen has struggled lately as well in 2016. The Panthers will look to get the passing game going against a weak Raiders secondary. They are ranked 24/32 against opposing tight ends. There should be plenty of room on the field to exploit their defense. I will be playing both the Cam/Benjamin and Cam/Olsen combo and so should you.
Coming off a big 4th quarter on Monday night, Carr will look to tear apart the Panthers secondary, who have been beatable all season. They rank 25/32 against opposing quarterbacks, so look for Carr to throw the ball early and often.
When you think of Derek Carr you automatically think of Cooper, that is just the way it works. Cooper struggled on Monday but still managed to get a late touchdown to save his week. I expect Cooper to dominate this week and be a top 5 receiver. The Carr, Cooper combo this week should be one of the best, therefore I will be stacking them often.
Another must win for a team that everyone had Super Bowl expectations coming into the 2016 season. The Cardinals should come out flying after laying an egg in Minnesota last week. Both defenses aren’t very good right now so points should be piling up. The Falcons are as explosive of a team as there is and the Cardinals have the best player in the world, David Johnson. This should be a fun game for Daily Fantasy Football players all over.
David Johnson has been an absolute fantasy monster in 2016. After bursting on the scene to end the 2015 season, Johnson has proved that he is the real deal. Daily Fantasy Football players have had no problem plugging him in their lineups this season and should do the same in week 12. Johnson faces a Falcons defense whose ranked 31/32 against the run. I will be playing DJ a lot in week 12.
Having another great season, Fitzgerald will look to pick apart the Falcons secondary, currently ranked 26/32 against opposing wide receivers. Look for Fitz to see plenty of targets on Sunday. He has averaged 12.5 targets a game in the last 4 weeks.
Normally I don’t like to pick players who are facing Cardinals cornerback, Patrick Peterson. However, Julio Jones is not normal. Coming off a bye week he said he is feeling great and that is a scary sight for anyone, even Peterson. Look for Julio to do his thing on Sunday, and it is safe for Daily Fantasy Football players to play him.
Russell Wilson ($6.700) @ Buccaneers
Eli Manning ($6.500) @ Browns
Jay Ajayi ($6,700) vs 4ers
Lamar Miller ($5,800) vs Chargers
Doug Baldwin ($6,400) @ Buccaneers
DeAndre Hopkins ($6,300) vs Chargers
Gary Barnidge ($3,600) vs Giants
Delanie Walker ($4,900) @ Bears
Giants ($3,600) @ Browns
Bills ($3,800) vs Jaguars
I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving back in the States! I wish all Daily Fantasy Football players the best of luck in DFS Week 12. As always make sure you follow the injury report all the way up to kickoff on Sunday. This should be a great week ahead and I will see you guys back here next week!
