Week 12 GPP Picks on FanDuel
Jameis Winston vs. SF $7,500
Jameis Winston is back in the starting role for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and I’m intrigued. In fact, I’m always intrigued when Winston is playing, due to how bad his defense is and the amount of times he throws the football. Yes, you have to deal with the interceptions, but I highly doubt TB will go back to Ryan Fitzpatrick if Winston struggles. Winston managed to pick up 17 fantasy points last week on only 16 passing attempts. Winston has two 300 yard games in his three starts this season and he had at least 270 yards in nine of his 13 games last season. TB leads the NFL in yards per game and passing yards per game, while SF has given up the fourth-most points per game out of all the teams on the main slate.
Carson Wentz vs. NYG $7,700
Carson Wentz had arguably the worst game of his NFL career last week, in a spot where many (myself included) were on him. Wentz finished with 156 yards and three interceptions for 3 fantasy points. I can’t imagine many people will feel great about rolling out Wentz again this week, even in a good spot at home against the New York Giants. I have no problem going back to Wentz in this spot and hopefully, most are off of him. Wentz had his best fantasy performance of the season when he threw for 278 yards and three touchdowns against the Giants in Week 6. He’s still surrounded by talented players and this game has a 46 point total due to the lack of D on both sides. NYG has allowed the eighth-most yards per game, rushing yards per game and points-per-game.
