Sunday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Bears at Packers

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 12 Sunday Night Football matchup. Constructing single-game lineups requires some imagination, especially for large-field tournament purposes.

We want to create a lineup that reflects a certain kind of game script, choosing players who would thrive—or at least have the chance to thrive—if their teams got out to a lead or were left chasing points in the second half. There’s also the neutral script that doesn't tend to inflate opportunity for any one player or team. Understanding the likelihood of each scenario and piecing together a roster that would score a bunch of points in such a scenario is key to success in these single-game contests.

Remember: For the captain spot on DraftKings, the price (and fantasy points awarded) are multiplied by 1.5. On FanDuel, the prices are the same throughout, but the MVP slot receives 1.5 times the fantasy point value of the other roster spots.

Vegas Spread And Total

The Packers, 8.5-point home favorites, have a solid implied total of 26.5 points. Chicago's implied total is 18, one of the lowest of Week 12. Eighteen points seems almost aspirational for Matt Nagy's team.
