Week 12 DFS Picks (from a high-stakes player)

By Tyler Siracuse 10:11am EST 11/25/17


I’m a high-stakes NFL DFS player who mainly plays on FanDuel and DraftKings. In this article I will be talking about some of my favorite plays for the Week 12 slate:


Top Plays

DraftKings QB: Jacoby Brissett ($5400) - Brissett has been fairly inconsistent this season with 3 games under 12 DK points and 3 games over 22. However, he has averaged 24.4 points per game against the Texans, Browns and 49ers, which puts him firmly in play against the pass funnel defense of Tennessee (6th worth against WRs and 11th best against RBs). Tennessee has allowed 21 pass TDs this season — 3rd most in the league. Brissett plays better at home and has managed to be a top 15 QB in 6 of the past 8 weeks. With a lot of stud WRs in plus spots this week, Brissett is looking viable for both cash and tournaments on DK.

FanDuel QB: Ben Roethlisberger ($7,900) – I’ve been a strong believer in Ben and the Steelers passing attack all season, and it finally paid off last week against the aforementioned Titans’ 26th-ranked DVOA pass defense. Ben went off for 299 yards and 4 TD and now gets another cake matchup with the Packers’ atrocious secondary. Green Bay has repeatedly gotten smashed by competent QBs this year, allowing 20+ points per game to Drew Brees, Dak Prescott, Matt Stafford and Matt Ryan. Ben has long been a much better QB at home and that has continued into this year, averaging 21.04 points in home games not against the Jaguars. Ben has 4 straight top 15 QB finishes and 3 straight top 12 finishes despite not unleashing upside until the 2nd half last week against the Titans. I expect another spike week against Brett Hundley and the Packers, with the Steelers dominating in time of possession and expected to score 4+ TDs (according to their Vegas implied total).
