What a broken box of toys this week has been in the NFL! Covid is acting like some sort of ‘virus’ and depleting rosters across the league. Luckily we have our Week 12 DraftKings tips, so we can help you navigate some of the value players across the NFL.
As always, make sure you check the rosters just prior to game time, we often lose a lot of the news living in the UK, so jump on DraftKings and see which players are fully affected.
(I have James Conner and Jonathan Taylor in Fantasy….pluck me!)
The Ravens game has been moved, and the Broncos have been essentially been told ‘screw you’ by the league, as they must troll their roster for potential QBs against the stalwart Saints D. Good luck!
Here are some of the value players I am looking at for week 12 in the NFL. Make sure you join our DraftKings League, links below.
Daniel Jones $5500
Five weeks ago, I wouldn’t have taken a bet as to whether Daniel Jones was able to take off his helmet by himself, but things change. The Giants are emerging as the least sucky of all the suckiness in that division. Jones is facing the bashed up Bengals, who really have no horse in the race this season after the loss of Burrow. DJ should have plenty of time to connect to Slayton and Engram, and get you at least 2 TDs on the day.
Josh Allen $7600
If the Chargers have one big problem, it’s their secondary. Despite the heroics of Justin Herbert this season, he needs to play catch up on many players to cover the hole his D just opened up. With the Bills coming off a bye week, Allen will be pumped and primed to rip open a very tired Chargers squad. Allen is stacked nicely with Stefon Diggs if you are looking to pump up your points.
James White $4500
White is one of a few dwindling running backs available to the Patriots this weekend, after Rex Burkhead heads to the injury box. Cam Newton is going to need someone to run the ball and pick up his sloppy options, so that leaves none other than James White. A pretty good deal at $4500 if you’re saving up for a Cooks or Kamara.
Wayne Gallman $5000
Another Giant who could be poised for big points against a sunken Cinci team. Gallman is heir apparent to Saquon this season, and is finally healthy enough to create some options for the New York offence. Another good value for a RB, who you could pair with someone a little more expensive.
Cooper Kupp $6400
Kupp is fast becoming Goff’s number one target, and has been stellar every week for solid points. The 49ers have lost a lot of their team, so you wonder how much they will really be in this game. The Rams need to keep winning to keep pace, and Kupp will be putting up big points along the way.
Keenan Cole Sr. $3600
Cole is one of the few toys that Mike Glennon will get to play with this Sunday, in a game that no one expects that much from. Jacksonville’s D has kept them in games that they had no business being in, and Glennon is possibly the best throwing QB on the Jags roster. He should have time spreading the ball around and finding Cole for holes in the Browns D.
Devante Parker $5900
It looks like Tua will miss this game, as Fitzmagic returns to the Dolphins spotlight. You wonder what happens if Fitzy lights it up and puts on a big score, would he be the starter again? He will have plenty of time to connect with his fave receiver in Parker, who has the wheels to find any space on the field. They are playing the Jets, so loads of points!
Mike Gesicki $4300
Same reason as above for Parker. Fitzpatrick loves him some Gesicki, so he will have plenty of time to connect to his best TE. Gesicki has been having a great season thus far, and this game has the potential to be his best yet. The Dolphins will be looking to dump out the Jets and get a hold of second place in the AFC East.
Wow! I must be coming down with something, because I chose a lot of Giants in this article. The Giants D has been the only thing that has kept them in games, and has caused massive headaches for teams like Washington. With a week off, it’s easy to see how they will be primed at home. The Bengals have a poor O line, so there should be plenty of time to get some sacks.
