25 Nov Daily Fantasy Must Plays for Week 12
Week 12 has arrived and with it comes a few daily fantasy matchups I cannot pass up. One game in particular I am going all in on.
With XTB’s new and improved DFS tool, you can have full access to all the great tools that I use to set my lineups on Sunday. My success this season is all thanks to this tool. It has everything you need from the salary cost of each player, their points per game average and expected points projection for each matchup.
It is every daily fantasy player’s dream. All the numbers, stats, and info you need are just a click away. Week 9 is here and my top players that I want in my lineup come Sunday.
QUARTERBACK – Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills
This week I am going with Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Week 12 is a big fantasy matchup as the Bills host to the Los Angeles Chargers. Josh Allen and the Bills are coming off a bye week and are in need of a win after the heartbreaking defeat they suffered Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals.
With two weeks to prepare for this one, the Bills game plan should be a simple one – continue to push the ball vertically down the field and let Allen do his thing. Buffalo has struggled to run the ball consistently as of late and the Bills success has been largely due to Allen’s arm. I expect Allen to take full advantage of the Chargers secondary and to let it fly all game long.
Allen has averaged almost 350 yards passing his past two games, and with the Chargers in the bottom third of the league in pass defense, Allen will continue to put up big numbers. Allen will throw for over 400 yards passing and for four touchdowns. He has the perfect matchup to be successful in this one as plenty of points will be needed in order to get the victory. Allen will be fantasy’s QB1 on Sunday.
Running Back – Wayne Gallman, New York Giants
It is not a typo, Wayne Gallman is my top running back play for Week 12. Gallman has been the lead back the past few games for the New York Giants, and has been very effective when given the volume. Going to back to Week 7 against the Eagles, Gallman is averaging over 15 touches per game and has scored a touchdown in every game.
The Giants are right in the thick of things in the NFC East, and with a matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals this week, Gallman will continue to pound the rock for New York. Last week the Bengals defense gave up over 150 yards on the ground to the Washington Football Team, and I expect the Giants to do the same.
This game is the perfect one after a bye for the Giants where they can get physical in the trenches and manhandle the banged up Bengals defense. Gallman will get 20-plus carries, eclipse 100 yards, and have a couple of scores in this one. Gallman is a spicy play for those who like a little risk but for those willing to make it.
Wide Receiver – Stefon Diggs, Buffalo Bills
I am all in on the Buffalo Bills, and I am also rolling with their star wide receiver Stefon Diggs. It is no secret I am a huge Stefon Diggs supporter. He has every tool to be considered one of the leagues best wideouts. This week against the Chargers he will have no problem showing off his skills and putting up huge numbers.
Diggs is top five in receptions and receiving yards thanks to his connection with Bills quarterback Josh Allen. This daily fantasy stack will be unstoppable on Sunday as the Allen to Diggs combo will hit for not one, but two touchdowns. Diggs is averaging about seven catches and 90.6 yards receiving per game, but in this one Diggs is going off for 10-plus catches for over 150 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
Stefon Diggs is a must-play this week and a failure to do so will lead you to fantasy heartbreak.
Tight End – Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs
Travis Kelce is my top daily fantasy play at tight end for Week 12. This one is a no-brainer for me as Travis Kelce has been the most dominant tight end in fantasy this season. As one of the top targets for Patrick Mahomes, he is averaging about 20 fantasy points a game. That is WR1 production at a position which no other tight end is coming close to getting.
This week in a road contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kelce will need to bring his ‘A’ game as this one is sure to be a shootout. Last week the Bucs defense failed to stop the Rams top playmakers, as Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp both went for over 100 yards receiving. Mahomes and the Chiefs will get the chance to pick apart the Tampa Bay defense and feed its superstar tight end.
Travis Kelce is already coming off a monster game against the Las Vegas Raiders where he put up a stat line of 8 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown. I am going to go the extra mile and say he exceeds that and goes off for 10-plus catches 125 yards and two touchdowns. We are at the point where not playing Kelce is a bad move, so I am playing it smart and putting Kelce in every lineup I can.
