Primetime DFS Slate Breakdown: Week 12

Our Week 12 primetime slate brings us two games with totals sitting below 49 points and only one team with an implied team total above 25 points. With that being said, I do believe the Sunday night game will carry the most ownership, so we definitely have a few places to leverage the field. Let's get into it.

Passing Games

Vikings

Kirk Cousins ($7,700 FD/$6,100 DK) and crew have the highest implied team total sitting at 25.5 points heading into Sunday Night Football vs the Packers. The matchup is fairly neutral as the Packers rank 17th in aFPA to quarterbacks, and with a healthy implied team total, Cousins does carry decent touchdown equity as the Vikings are passing at a 66.3 percent clip this season. The Vikings pass offense is heavily concentrated between Adam Thielen ($8,600 FD/$8,400 DK) and Stefon Diggs ($7,300 FD/$7,600 DK) as they eat up 55 percent of their team's targets and no other player has more than a 12 percent market share of targets. The Packers rank 28th in aFPA to wideouts and the last time these two teams played, Kirk had 48 pass attempts, so the volume should be there for both of them. Kyle Rudolph ($5,600 FD/$3,900 DK) has a 12 percent market share of targets and the Packers rank 10th in aFPA to tight ends and while he is cheap, a full-on punt with a minimum priced tight end is the way to go in the slate. Aldrick Robinson ($4,600 FD/$3,200 DK) and Laquon Treadwell ($4,600 FD/$3,200 DK) should only be considered as part of stacks or leverage off of Diggs and Thielen in large tournaments.
