The Thanksgiving games have come and gone, we have survived Black Friday and we are now focused on Week 12's main slate!
With three games already played and the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs on bye weeks, the main slate player pool is limited.
Sunday Night Football features an NFC North battle with the Minnesota Vikings hosting the Green Bay Packers. Monday Night Football is an AFC South showdown between the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans. All four of those teams feature players we like week in and week out, making the Week 12 main slate player pool even smaller!
Some of the more popular stacks this week will be the Philadelphia Eagles (Carson Wentz/Zach Ertz) against the New York Football Giants (Eli Manning/Saquon Barkley/Odell Beckham). The over/under is 47 points and the Eagles are 5.5 point home favorites.
You will also see a ton of the usual Pittsburgh Steelers (Ben Roethlisberger/James Conner/Antonio Brown/JuJu Smith-Schuster) stacks. Their game at the Denver Broncos also has a 47 point over/under and the Steelers are 3 point road favorites.
The New England Patriots are 10 point road favorites against the New York Jets as Tom Brady will have Rob Gronkowski back in Week 12.
But we are here to help you find a less common stack to help take down a GPP – so let’s see what else we have to choose from this week.
2018 NFL DFS Week 12 Team Stacks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs San Francisco 49ers

Winston is back under center and O.J. Howard has been placed on IR. Brate is criminally underpriced this week.
The 49ers defense has allowed every QB they faced to throw for at least two scores except Josh Rosen and Derek Carr. Even Eli Manning just tossed three scores last week.
Both teams have nothing left to play for but Winston has his career on the line. This is essentially his last chance to redeem himself with the Bucs brass, teammates and fans.
Believe it or not, this game features the highest over/under on Sunday, at 54 points. The Buccaneers are 2.5 point favorites with an implied total of 28.25.

Carolina Panthers vs Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks have allowed rushing touchdowns to all three running backs they have faced since their bye week and Aaron Jones added a receiving TD last week too.
McCaffrey has a floor of 5 catches and 50 yards out of the backfield and if he continues to average four rushing yards per carry, and sees another 15 carries, that put him over 100 yards from scrimmage.
Newton has not been running the ball much this season but has at least two touchdown passes in every game this year, except Week 1.
The Panthers will be without Devin Funchess, so add a Greg Olsen, D.J. Moore or Curtis Samuel if you wish.
This game features a 46.5 point over/under and the Panthers are 3 point favorites with an implied total of 24.75.
Indianapolis Colts @ Miami Dolphins
The Colts are not great at running the football, but they have done well against bad run defenses. The Dolphins are a bad run defense.
Mack has been a difference maker when healthy. He averaged over five yards per carry in three straight weeks against the Jets Bills and Raiders.
Luck is putting up MVP numbers and it is all thanks to his tight ends. It's been a breakout year for Eric Ebron but Jack Doyle is back and healthy. Ebron did not even see a target in last weeks win over the Titans. I don't expect that to happen again, especially with Mo-Allie Cox ruled out for Week 12. The Dolphins have allowed two different tight ends to catch two touchdowns in a game.
You can add T.Y. Hilton to the mix here as the Dolphins has given up touchdowns to opponents best wide receivers, but this game could get out of hand quickly!
This game features a 51 point over/under and the Colts are 7.5 point road favorites with an implied total of 29.25.
