FanDuel Week 12: Digging Through The Leftovers

When it comes to food, there are few times of the year that can compete with Thanksgiving in terms of sheer awesomeness. Everybody gets together on Thursday and eats themselves into a coma and watches football and, if they're crazy enough, gets prepared to go shopping on Black Friday.

That's all well and good, but you know what's even better than chowing down on Thanksgiving? Chowing down on leftovers for a few days after Thanksgiving. Seriously, turkey sandwiches for days, mashed potatoes, and whipped cream that accidentally gets some pumpkin pie in it. . .it doesn't get any better than that.

In the football world, we've already gotten some of the main course with three games this past Thursday. Much like your regular Thanksgiving feast, we've got plenty of leftovers to tide us over for this weekend. Sure, we don't get the benefit of Matthew Stafford tearing up the Eagles' defense or Cam Newton doing Cam Newton things or Aaron Rodgers. . .wait, you're not still spending part of your DFS salary cap on Aaron Rodgers, are you?

This weekend, it's a matter of sifting through what's left over and finding the good stuff for your Daily Fantasy Sports action. With that in mind, here's what I'm going to be rolling with for this week's action on FanDuel.

FanDuel Week 12 Lineup

Yep, I'm gonna go ahead and roll with Teddy this week at quarterback. The Falcons' defense doesn't get a whole lot of pressure on anybody, and after a rough game last weekend, hopefully the offensive line can do a better job of protecting him against a weak Atlanta pass rush. Going slightly cheaper at quarterback gives me the opportunity to load up at wide receiver, as a Hopkins/Green/Fitzgerald trio is pretty solid, in my opinion. On defense, the Bills are traveling on a short week, and Tyrod Taylor isn't 100% healthy, so the Chiefs seem like a solid play.

So, how much would it cost you to deploy a full lineup of Minnesota Vikings this weekend?

Position Player Week 11 Salary Week 12 Salary Change
QB Teddy Bridgewater $6,600 $6,500 -$100
RB Adrian Peterson $8,900 $9,000 +$100
RB Jerick McKinnon/Matt Asiata $4,700 $4,500 -$200
WR Stefon Diggs $6,700 $6,600 -$100
WR Mike Wallace $5,200 $5,100 -$100
WR Jarius Wright $4,900 $4,900 $0
TE Kyle Rudolph $4,700 $5,000 +$300
K Blair Walsh $4,900 $4,700 -$200
D Minnesota $4,300 $4,400 +$100
Totals $50,900 $50,700 -$200

After laying an egg offensively last week, you'd expect the stock of a lot of Vikings' players to have dropped. Mike Wallace has just about priced himself into "random wide receiver" territory as opposed to someone that you might actually use on a regular basis. McKinnon has been more expensive than Asiata all season until this week. . .now you can have them both for the same price. Nice to see Rudolph get a bit of a bump after his first career 100-yard performance, too.

And that's a look at FanDuel this week. Are you getting involved in Daily Fantasy Sports this Sunday?
