NFL DFS DraftKings Cash Picks: Week 12 (Fantasy Football)
NFL DFS cash games are all about building a high floor lineup that can win in head to heads, 50/50s, and double-ups. Each week I’ll highlight my favorite cash game picks that I have some confidence heading into the weekend to put into my player pools. For more on cash game strategy and the mechanics of it, make sure you listen to our DFS Cash Overview episode.

Cam Newton $5,600
Newton’s price only jumped $500 after posting 26.2 DraftKings points last week in his first game as Carolina’s starter and only his second game on the roster. Newton has a rushing TD in back-to-back weeks, giving up a safe floor for cash games as he’s sure to run the football again here in Week 12. As for the matchup, Miami has given up the 7th most fantasy points over the last four weeks, and no other defense has given up more passing yards in the NFL. At his price tag, he offers a ton of salary savings that are going to be crucial for other spend-up options on the slate, most notably Cooper Kupp, Christian McCaffrey and Davante Adams. See below for analysis on these players.
