The Week 12 Edition of NFL DFS from Down Under sees Dr Darryl Data join Josh Wye to talk all things Thanksgiving, Football and DFS. With three TNF games on Thanksgiving, Week 12 provides the unique opportunity for DFS players to triple play with thanksgiving only line-ups, Sunday only line-ups and entire Week 12 line-ups.
With the Chiefs and Rams on a well earned bye, only three Week 12 matches are above the 50 point total with the Falcons @ Saints being the most desirable fantasy matchup with a 60 point total. The usual suspects in Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Julio Jones and Michael Thomas are all mentioned in this spot and all provide a solid fantasy floor.
For the second time this season (and with absolutely zero risk of OJ Howard being a surprise active), Wye slams the table for a Jameis Winston and Cameron Brate stack. He wants to make America Brate Again. The Fantasy Insider Line-Up Cruncher agrees as Darryl mentions that Brate is one of the better value options at the tight end position. The two also agree on Leonard Fournette this week who has racked up nearly 60 touches in two weeks since his return from a hamstring injury.
The most surprising name to appear on both Darryl & Josh’s plays this week was Danny Amendola. The former Patriot turned Dolphin is one of the very few healthy pass catchers for Ryan Tannehill this week when they take on the Colts. Amendola is seeing approximately 6 targets per game and slow receivers have had success this season against Indianapolis with Seth Roberts, Dede Westbrook, Jermaine Kearse and Julian Edelman all putting up playable numbers. Outside of Amendola, the cruncher through up some surprising and overlooked names in the fantasy realm and could be real points of difference if successful this week.
Chase Daniel, Baker Mayfield, Gus Edwards, Jalen Richard, Marquise Goodwin, Doug Baldwin, Nick Vannett and the Chargers defence are all discussed at length as good or potential plays this week.
