At this point, you're probably wondering where you can find the most value for your NFL Week 12 DFS lineups. Maybe you're trying to build around Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce or Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown and are having a little difficulty? I can understand that. Usually we look to the NFL Injury Report and see if there is any value opening up and while we might be able to unearth a hidden gem or two, most of the reports we are getting involve Cooper Kupp actually being able to play, Justin Jefferson not returning to Monday Night Football and more sad-sack stories about Dallas Goedert's broken arm and the Bengals passing offense. But as I said, we do have a few spots where value is opening up, giving us the DFS bargains we need.

 

 

If you're new to Fantasy Alarm, the DFS Dart Board is an add-on to the Playbook that I started several years ago. It came about when I was building GPP lineups and realized I needed more salary relief. As I dug through my notes to see who stood out the most among those players at a more affordable price, it hit me. When I put players in the Playbook, I am thinking primarily about cash lineup plays -- guys with a high floor who I could conceivably put into my core-group and build a lineup around. After those players, I would mix in a handful of guys who had boatloads of upside and were in soft match-ups, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to their salary as I should have. And that's where the Dart Board came into play.

Occasionally you may see a min-priced QB or TE in here, but more often than not, this space is reserved for running backs and wide receivers who are below $6,000 on FanDuel or $5,000 or lower on DraftKings. Also, while we call this a Dart Board, keep in mind that every player has been carefully researched. We're not up here picking players all willy-nilly, desperately hoping they hit. We're looking for the cheapest bargains possible who still have the strongest potential to give you at least a 3-5x return on what you pay.

All set? Great. Let's get to it and while you do, maybe give a listen to this week's NFL Week 11 DFS Show with me & Jon Impemba!
