Daigle's Top NFL DFS Picks: Week 12
I begin my research for DFS tournaments every week by sifting through what our opponents are doing and engineering lineups backward from there.
These top plays, though viable for cash games (which will be noted throughout), are suggested specifically for tournaments and are weighted for ceiling projection, matchup, ownership, and value. I will include any thoughts on game theory within my reasoning for each player.
They are listed in order of descending price, not by my personal rankings
Lamar Jackson, Ravens ($8,000 DK, $8,200 FD)
Jackson has eclipsed 18 fantasy points in a single game in his last seven starts but is suddenly slated in his softest matchup to date against a Jags defense ranked stone last in Football Outsiders’ Defensive DVOA metric over the last month, allowing a top-nine finish to quarterbacks in 3-of-4 games before their bye. Jackson quietly projects with the highest ceiling of any quarterback on the main slate, leaving him as a hold-your-nose option to spend up for in tournaments.
