NFL DFS FanDuel Cash Picks for Week 12 (Fantasy Football)
I need to honest… it’s been a heck of a week at the Fantasy Footballers:
Traveling to Atlanta and North Carolina, back to Atlanta, and then back to Phoenix again on Saturday… it’s been nonstop but great seeing family. But with the hectic schedule, I’ll be a bit shorter on my cash picks this week but stay tuned for Saturday’s DFS Best Plays.
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. On the Fantasy Footballers DFS Podcast, Betz and myself will dive into a couple of these but this article is intended for DFS Pass subscribers to get the full lay of the land.
Patrick Mahomes vs LAR- $9000
He’s a machine, especially inside the red zone. Mahomes is on pace for 39 red zone TDs which would be the most all-time. Paying up for Mahomes in cash is stating that he’ll go 300 & 3. I mean he is averaging 326 and 2.8 this year so yeah. Go for it.
Lamar Jackson @ JAX- $8200
Over the last five games, the Jaguars are the 2nd best matchup for fantasy QBs allowing the 3rd most passing yards including top-10 weeks from Matt Ryan, Daniel Jones, Derek Carr, & Patrick Mahomes. The only QB that wasn’t top-10 in that span: Russell Wilson. It’s his time. He has seven total TDs since Week 4 and he’s criminally underpriced given his upside and the Ravens’ team total.
