Thursday Night DraftKings Showdown: Week 12
The Colts visit the Texans to kick off Week 12. I’ll be bringing this Thursday night preview each week breaking down this single-game slate for DraftKings contests as part of the Footballers’ DFS Pass.
This Thursday Night football game shouldn’t disappoint as both the Colts and Texans enter Week 12 tied atop the AFC South standings at 6-4. Neither defense is particularly intimidating and both offenses have the potential to post loads of points, especially the Texans. Houston, led by MVP candidate, Deshaun Watson, projects favorably in this spot while playing at home.
The Over/Under is set at a respectable 45.5. Thus, our process puts both Kickers in play in this one.

Deshaun Watson $17,400
The Texans laid an egg last week on the road in Baltimore but don’t expect that to be the case again on Thursday night. The Texans get to play at home against a Colts team that ranks middle of the road (15th) in points per game allowed. Watson is averaging a respectable 260.1 passing yards per game and ranks tied for ninth in the league in Pass TDs per game (1.8).
