Welcome to the DFS Playbook for NFL Week 12!

What's up #FANation!? Greetings from, well, I would say sunny Miami, but I haven't left my hotel room all morning as I sift through mountains of data and research to get us ready for this weekend's DFS contests. If you're just joining us, I am in Miami for the Draft Kings King of the Beach Live Final where I do battle with another 74 people for $200,000. Lineup construction is different for a competition like this as you need just the right blend of players. You want your high-floor cash plays, but you also need to think outside the box a little and dig up some players the rest of the group isn't even thinking about.

It's an interesting slate as Christian McCaffrey sits at $10,500 once again and the decision of whether or not to fade him is up in the air. He put up 30-plus points last week without even getting into the end zone, but again, that price tag is extremely constrictive. On a good note, there are a number of high-end players like Patrick Mahomes , Lamar Jackson , Dalvin Cook , Melvin Gordon and Tyreek Hill who aren't on the slate. That should help some, but in order to lock in McCaffrey or a guy like Michael Thomas , you really need to find the value plays. Injury and practice reports are your friends so let's take a look and see what we can find this week.
