Top FanDuel & DraftKings Week 12 DFS Value Plays

Baker Mayfield, QB Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Baker is a great price tag across the board this week and in a strong matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. We've been selective when it comes to our spots to use Mayfield this season and we've been rather successful when putting the Buccaneers QB in our lineups as a value play. I'm looking to stack this game here with Mayfield at QB and any one of the his receivers here against the Colts which includes running back Rachaad White who is an elite pass catcher.

Jaylen Warren, RB Pittsburgh Steelers

I'm not 100% sure that with a new offensive coordinator we are going to see a complete takeover from Warren this week against the Bengals and Najee Harris is the cheaper running back to roster in DFS but we just can't ignore back-to-back 100-yard games from Warren here who has just looked like the more explosive playmaker in the Steelers backfield this season and now gets a juicy matchup against a bad Bengals run defense.

Justin Watson, WR Kansas City Chiefs

I was going to add Watson to the DFS Dart Board this week but was beaten to the punch by Bender and the “Dan Malin Special" so consider this a double-tap here as I include Watson as one of the top value plays at wide receiver this week. Rostership is actually also getting to Watson this week and why shouldn't it? The Chiefs are big favorites, Patrick Mahomes has torched the Raiders over his career and Watson is coming off a game where he had 11 targets. The inconsistencies among the Chiefs receivers this year is actually forcing Watson on the field as he's seen over 60% of the offensive snaps over the past two weeks.

Cade Otton, TE Tampa Bay Buccaneers

As I mentioned, you can play all the Buccaneers pass catchers this week but lets look at tight end Cade Otton for some value here this week. Otton has started to see an increased target share and a few weeks back he exploded in a multi-touchdown performance. We don't often consider the tight end position to be “safe” when it comes to values but I think Otton will be locked in for his usual run of 5-6 targets this week.
