DraftKings Week 12 GPP Breakdown
Injuries hit hard in Week 11, giving us some low-cost options in play this week. It's also the time of year where younger players -- especially rookie or sophomore receivers, tend to pick up their level of play as they get more acclimated to the NFL game. Don't be surprised if you see some players in winning lineups this week that haven't been on the radar for much of the season.
Also, note there was a lot to learn from last week, so be sure to check out my column reviewing Week 11 takeaways if you haven't already.
Derek Carr $6,100 vs. CAR
Only four QBs average more PPG than Carr (20.7), yet eight QBs are priced ahead of him. The Raiders are at home with an implied total of 25.75 against a Panthers defense ranked 25th in QB aFPA that will be without its best player, middle linebacker Luke Kuechly.
Cam Newton $6,800 @ OAK
Newton has struggled this season with his offensive line in flux, but still has weekly QB1 overall upside due to his rushing ability. Newton's price is at its season-low and hasn't been lower since early 2015.
