Week 12 NFL DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheet for Yahoo

Welcome to the FC Insights Core Plays and Cheat Sheet Article for Yahoo.

In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for Yahoo for each DFS week of the 2019-2020 NFL DFS season.

In this article, I am going to give you my four top players for Yahoo as well as my cheat sheet. My cheat sheet will include any player that I have more than 15% exposure to as of this writing on Yahoo.

Last Weeks Results

  1. Drew Brees (21.12 fantasy points)
  2. Josh Jacobs (11.90 fantasy points)
  3. Brian Hill (4.30 fantasy points)
  4. Michael Thomas (21.40 fantasy points)

Core Plays

QB-Jeff Driskel-$24

Driskel’s salary is a joke this week for the way he has been playing. In his two starts, Driskel has at least a touchdown pass, at least 35 rushing yards and at least 18 fantasy points. This week there is no reason to believe that Driskel doesn’t continue to put up numbers as he faces a Redskins defense that is average at best in stopping running quarterbacks as well as in terms of overall fantasy points allowed per game to the position.

RB-Derrick Henry-$30

Henry started off the week as a running back I didn’t want much of but the more and more I dig into his numbers the more I want him. Henry has been that great this season with 83.2 rushing yards per game and ten total touchdowns. Henry has been especially great over the past four weeks for the Titans. In those four games, Henry is averaging 104 rushing yard and a score. Henry also has added seven catches and a score which is normally not a part of his game. Henry has at least 17 fantasy points in three of those games. While his recent play is a great reason to roster Henry it is not the reason I am so high on him. The match-up against the Jaguars is what really has me pumped about Henry. This season the Jaguars are allowing the fifth-most rushing yards per game to running backs and over their past two games, they have allowed 265 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.

WR-D.J. Moore-$22

When is Moore going to be priced like a WR1? I don’t know the answer to that question but I do know that I am going to take advantage of Moore’s salary as it is a joke. Moore has at least eight targets in six straight games, has at least six catches in each of those games and has at least 70 yards receiving in five of those games. Moore has at least nine fantasy points in all but two games this season. With Marshon Lattimore not likely to suit up for the Saints this week there is no reason to believe that Moore doesn’t continue to put up big numbers.

DST-Falcons-$11

Selecting a defense in the game that has the only projected total over 50 might seem stupid but when you really break things down I don’t see how you don’t play the Falcons at this salary. The Falcons defense looks totally different since the bye week allowing a total of 12 points while racking up 11 sacks in those two games. The Bucs while being able to score points are also a positive match-up for defenses as they turn the ball over a ton and allow a lot of sacks.
