DraftKings GPP Picks for Week 12
Cam Newton vs. Arizona Cardinals $6,400
Cam Newton threw for his first 40+ attempts and 300+ yard passing game since Week 2, but in familiar 2020 Newton form, failed to return a multiple-touchdown game. The good news is, that in each of his last four games, Newton has returned at least 3x value. This week, his $6,400 salary is tied for the third-highest of his season and puts him priced as this slate’s QB6. While Newton is only averaging 27.6 pass attempts per game, he is completing 68% of them. Additionally, his 9.2 rush attempts per game and nine rushing touchdowns on the season elevates his weekly floor. This week, he faces a Cardinals defense that has allowed the 9th-most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, ranks 13th in DVOA against the pass, and 14th against the rush. With several favorable quarterback matchups this week, Newton could head into GPP contests with below-average ownership. The Patriots are 2.5-point underdogs with an implied point total of 23.5 points.
