FanDuel NFL DFS Lineup Picks for Week 12 - Daily Fantasy Football

Week 12 is here (already), and FanDuel has 11 games available on the "main slate." With the temperature dropping and the weather getting nasty in cold-weather cities, favorable conditions are a factor more than ever. Tampa Bay at Atlanta leads the slate from a Vegas perspective with a projected overall score of 54 points. With the Falcons giving the Buccaneers just three points, look for these teams to be throwing up until the end. Carolina will also head to New Orleans for a meeting with the Saints. Also Look for both clubs to put up some points in a contest that will be loaded with players who should produce some solid numbers. With Rain projected to hit the northeast on Sunday, most of the games in that region will be impacted from a scoring standpoint, at least to some degree.

In this article, I will be providing you with daily fantasy football picks in FanDuel for November 24, 2019 (Week 12). These lineups can vary from higher-priced players and elite options to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. Be sure to also consult the NFL Depth Charts and Snap Counts for more critical information this week.

FanDuel DFS Quarterbacks - Week 12 Picks

Drew Brees - QB, vs. CAR ($8,500)

Brees could be the highest-scoring quarterback in Week 12. He has played well at home against the Panthers throughout his tenure in the league, throwing 28 touchdowns and only nine interceptions to go along with a 66.7 completion percentage. As mentioned, these two teams will light things up on the scoring end, so save some dough and get him in your lineup.

Jeff Driskel - QB, @ WAS ($7,300)

Driskel had a semi-rough go in his first appearance after taking over for Matthew Stafford, compiling just 18.56 fantasy points in Week 10 against the Raiders. He did pick things up last Sunday, nonetheless, throwing for two touchdowns and running one in against the Cowboys for a value-busting 27.46 fantasy points. Ownership will likely be high for Driskel in Week 12, and while he isn't a horrible player by any means, you are really paying for the matchup in this situation.

Also Consider: Russell Wilson ($8,200), Matt Ryan ($7,900), Jameis Winston ($7,600),


FanDuel DFS Running Backs - Week 12 Picks

Derrick Henry - RB, vs. JAC ($8,400)

Henry has been dominant as of late and will face off against a Jaguars Defense that has struggled over the last two weeks by allowing 236 rushing yards, good for second-worst in the league. He has four touchdowns in his previous two games prior to the team's Week 11 bye, and will likely be in line for another healthy outing against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Joe Mixon - RB, vs. PIT ($6,700)

Mixon has accumulated at least 15.7 fantasy points in each of his last three games, which was a substantial improvement after combining for just 11.8 in the two games before Week 8. Rookie quarterback Ryan Finley has struggled in his first two starts as a professional, and with the team plagued with a plethora of injuries, Mixon should get more than his fair share of opportunities to produce against the Steelers.

Also Consider: Christian McCaffrey ($10,500), Alvin Kamara ($8,300), Nick Chubb ($8,200), Josh Jacobs ($8,000), Leonard Fournette ($7,000), Bo Scarbrough ($6,400), James White ($6,100), Brian Hill ($5,500), Derrius Guice ($5,400)


FanDuel DFS Wide Receivers - Week 12 Picks

Michael Thomas - WR, vs. CAR ($9,200)

It won't be cheap to acquire Thomas' services in Week 12 and for good reason. The guy has caught a ton of contested catches this season, set a record for most catches through the first ten games with 94, and is on pace to break Marvin Harrison's single-season record of 143 receptions. As it stands at the moment, nobody should want to live in a world where Thomas isn't in their DFS lineup, so make sure he is on your roster because if he isn't, you'll be sorry.

D.J. Moore - WR, @ NO ($6,400)

Moore has seen at least eight targets in eight games this season. He doesn't score a whole lot, accruing just one touchdown on the year, but he continues to fly under the radar. Look for him to keep it going in a game that should be a shootout in Week 12.

Also Consider: Julio Jones ($8,400), Mike Evans ($8,000), Chris Godwin ($7,800), Julian Edelman ($7,500), Marvin Jones Jr. ($7,200), Calvin Ridley ($6,700), Devante Parker ($6,000), Tyler Boyd ($5,600), Russell Gage ($5,300), N'Keal Harry ($5,000), Alex Erickson ($4,700)


FanDuel DFS Tight Ends - Week 12 Picks

Zach Ertz - TE, vs. SEA ($6,100)

Ertz caught 18 of his 22 targets for 197 yards and a touchdown over his last two games. The Seahawks are allowing a ninth-worst 13.85 fantasy points this season, and with Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor possibly out on Sunday, the veteran could be in store for more production against Seattle.

Jared Cook - TE, vs. CAR ($6,000)

Cook has scored a touchdown in three of his last four appearances. While the Panthers have handled themselves relatively well against opposing tight ends this season, allowing just over eight fantasy points per game, Cook continues to get plenty of attention from Drew Brees.

Also Consider: Jacob Hollister ($5,800), Vance McDonald ($5,300), Ben Watson ($5,300), Dallas Goedert ($5,200), Tyler Eifert ($5,000)


FanDuel DFS Defenses - Week 12 Picks

Bengals Defense - vs. PIT ($3,800)

The Bengals aren't impressing anyone this season, but could Cincy be in store for its first win of the season on Sunday? The Steelers will likely be without James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster, so the deck will be semi-stacked against Pittsburgh against the winless Bengals. This one is a stretch, but it could pay off for those who are willing to take a chance.

Also Consider: Bears Defense ($5,000), Lions Defense ($5,000), Steelers Defense ($5,000), Bills Defense ($4,700), Raiders Defense ($4,600)
