NFL DFS Optimal Lineups: Mon-Thurs (Week 11/12)
Howard Bender
Andre Hal Headshot

Hal finished Sunday's victory over the Cardinals with four tackles (three solo) and an interception.

Hal's interception marked his third on the season. Also, it was his fourth consecutive game with at least four tackles. The 25-year-old did his work across 55 defensive snaps (95.0 percent), which was the second highest on the team.
9:40 pm (EST)
Cody Parkey Headshot

Parkey made both of his field-goal and extra-point attempts en route to eight points in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Parkey's scoring output matched his highest since Miami's season opener. Through 10 games, however, he boasts merely 47 points, and Sunday's trip to New England doesn't appear favorable either.
9:38 pm (EST)
E.J. Gaines Headshot

Gaines, returning from a hamstring injury, posted nine total tackles in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Gaines logged 74 snaps in the ugly 54-24 loss to the Chargers, so it looks like he should be good moving forward after missing three-plus games with the injury. The nine stops represent his single-game high for 2017.
9:38 pm (EST)
Jeremy Sprinkle Headshot

Sprinkle hauled in a seven-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Sprinkle has been inactive for half of the season but managed 15 offensive reps Sunday with Jordan Reed (hamstring) sidelined. Reed was held out of practice Monday, which doesn't bode well for his chances of playing in the Thanksgiving showdown with the Giants. Sprinkle could continue to see offensive reps with Reed out, but the majority of tight end targets will continue to go to veteran Vernon Davis.
9:37 pm (EST)
Shawn Williams Headshot

Williams had four tackles (three solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's win over the Broncos.

Williams will occasionally get nearer to double digit tackles, but Sunday's game against the Broncos was a fairly typical performance. Next week the Bengals face the Browns, another appealing matchup for the defensive unit.
9:35 pm (EST)
Aldrick Rosas Headshot

Rosas made both his field-goal attempts, but missed his lone extra-point try in Sunday's 12-9 win over the Chiefs.

Rosas' 23-yarder in overtime sealed New York's second victory, but was only needed because he missed his first extra point of the season during regulation. The rookie has missed at least one kick in five straight outings, which has paired with the Giants' offensive struggles to limit him to 50 points through 10 appearances.
9:35 pm (EST)
Kyler Fackrell Headshot

Fackrell finished Sunday's loss with five tackles (four solo), and his first sack of the season.

Fackrell did his damage across 34 snaps (58.0 percent). His five tackles were also a season high, as he had not recorded more than two previously. The second year linebacker will match his sack total from his rookie season if he can log one more.
9:34 pm (EST)
Byron Marshall Headshot

Marshall received on carry for two yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.

Marshall has quickly climbed up the Redskins' depth chart after signing with the team last week. He will enter Thursday's Thanksgiving game against the Giants as the No. 2 back after the Redskins lost Rob Kelley (ankle) and Chris Thompson (fibula) the past two weeks. Rookie Samaje Perine (finger) is expected to bear the brunt of the workload from here on out but Marshall will still find himself with an expanded offensive role for the remainder of the season.
9:32 pm (EST)
Will Barton Headshot

Barton will start at small forward for Monday's game against the Kings.

The Nuggets are set to be without Wilson Chandler (back) on Monday, so Barton will jump into the starting lineup and will immediately become a very intriguing fantasy play. In two previous starts this season, Barton has blown up for averages of 19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists across 36.2 minutes, and he'll get a ton of minutes once again with both Chandler and Paul Millsap (wrist) sitting out.
