Daily Fantasy Football: Week 12

Thomas Rawls blew up last week. It would have been tough for anyone starting Rawls to not make money on FanDuel. Who will be the Thomas Rawls of this week? Let's find out. 



Quarterback:
Brian Hoyer ($7,100) is my QB Stream of the Week. The former Rob Ryan defense in New Orleans has given up a league high 25.32 FanDuel points per game to opposing QBs and 31.15 per game over the last three weeks. It know it's Hoyer, but with this matchup, I like his price.

Running Backs: 
TJ Yeldon ($6,500) is a value this week going up against the San Diego defense has given up two more 20+ yard rush plays than any other defense in the NFL (13 rush plays of 20 or more yards); indeed, the San Diego defense has allowed more fantasy points per game to opposing RBs (27.56) than any other team this season. Furthermore, Yeldon should get the bulk of the touches again this week after outsnapping Denard Robinson 49 to 11.

Chris Johnson ($6,800) has a tasty matchup against the San Francisco defense. CJ2K had 22 carries for 110 yards and two scores in their matchup against San Francisco earlier this season. And San Francisco was manhandled by Thomas Rawls in Week 11. Gobble Chris Johnson up in your lineups this week.

Thursday's Turkey Special: Jonathan Stewart ($7,100) is second in the NFL in carries inside the 10-yard line since Week 5. J-Stew is going up against the sixth worst rushing defense (based on FanDuel scoring).


Wide Receivers:
Odell Beckham Jr. ($9,100) has a savory matchup in Week 12. The Washington Redskins have given up almost 34 points per game to opposing WRs over the last three weeks, fourth most in the NFL.

DeAndre Hopkins ($9,400) is the most expensive WR this week, but he's well worth the price (see Brian Hoyer). Hopkins has as high of a floor as any WR in the NFL. And this week, his ceiling is unfathomable when you consider he's going up against the New Orleans Saints' secondary. 

Value Pick of the Week: Kamar Aiken ($6,100) should remain the focal point of the Baltimore passing attack, even with Matt Schaub under center. Aiken led all Ravens WRs in Week 11 with five catches for 50 yards and a TD on eight targets.

Tight End:
Has the hate gone too far for Jimmy Graham ($5,500)? Probably not, but he has the potential each and every week to explode and give you a big pay day. I like his price this week against a porous Pittsburgh defense (11th worst team in NFL against TE and 2nd worst against WRs).

Kicker: 
As I've said all year, kickers are more of a dart throw each week than any other position. My dart this week landed on Steven Hauschka ($5,000) who has a good matchup this week at home against Pittsburgh.

Defense: 
The Kansas City Chiefs' defense ($4,500) has earned 19.5 FanDuel points per week over the last three week (that's 7.5 points more than any other team!). Buy this fat turkey for cheap while you still can.

Good luck this week in your fantasy football matchups and tournaments. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Let us know how you do this week on Twitter (@Fantasy4um)
