2020 NFL DFS Week 12 Team Stacks

on

We may still be full from Thursday, we may still even be tired. But it’s time to ignore our families and traditions and get back to what actually matters, our DFS lineups. And just in time, the 2020 NFL DFS Week 12 Team Stacks is here to help you ignore your families.

The Ravens have found themselves in a full-fledged COVID breakout. And as quickly as the game got added to the main slate, they may be removed. There may even need to be a week 18 at the rate things are going.

The main slate feels a bit weaker than usual with some key offenses in undesirable matchups. But with five 50+ implied totals, there should be no shortage of production.

Game of The Week: Las Vegas Raiders @ Atlanta Falcons

While the Chiefs vs. Bucs may be the game to watch, the Raiders vs. Falcons is the game to stack.

Last week Derek Carr played well enough to have beaten the Chiefs again. Unfortunately, his receivers dropped some of his best passes.

Despite getting a resurgence of the terminal drops that drove him out of Philly, Nelson Agholor is still the receiver to have on the Raiders. Ruggs remains an all or nothing coin flip that could get anywhere from 2.5-25 points.

Waller and Jacobs need no explanation at this point. They’re top options against a bottom defense. Both players are no-brainers if the budgets permit them.

Matt Ryan has had his struggles this season for sure. His somewhat desirable matchup makes him worthy of consideration, but I’m tilting more toward Carr this week.

Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are both currently questionable but are expected to go. Olamide Zaccheaus is another cheap option who could get 2 or 20 points. I’m not putting him everywhere but it’s hard to resist knowing Julio is going at less than 100%.

Todd Gurley is questionable and given his injury history, the Falcons may be hesitant to rush him back to the field. Brian Hill would be the most likely recipient of extra snaps should Gurley miss time.

In keeping with the holiday spirit, Hayden Hurst is like the Stovetop stuffing of fantasy football. Affordable, dependable, and a cornerstone to build around. He’s currently questionable but if he goes, he’s worth considering. If he’s out, it’s unclear which if any TE will replace his production.

Teams to Stack

New York Giants @ Cincinnati Bengals

Daniel Jones at a discounted price, with his rushing upside, is finally worth consideration in your lineups. The Bengals are dealing with injuries everywhere, and while their defense isn’t quite as bad as an NFC East team, Jones has still shown potential in a favorable matchup. There is also a strong possibility of Jones racking up 40+ rushing yards to help bolster his floor.

Wayne Gallman will be in every single one of my lineups this week. It’s been a full month since Gallman failed to score double-digit points. With five TDs in four games, Gallman is very quietly putting up consistent numbers. And at only $5,000 on Draft Kings, his dependability is not reflected in his price.

Slayton is the big play receiver who may or may not do a whole lot in any given week. Despite his inconsistencies, I believe he’s got a good chance this week against a Bengals team that struggles to apply pressure without blitzing. Sterling Shepard is the chain-moving possession type of player who is a more reliable option than Slayton. Shepard is who I would pick in a head to head lineup.

Engram is another TE who has been relatively dependable, though unimpressive. However the Bengals have struggled immensely against TEs giving up the second-most points to the position.

LA Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers

Goff is one of those players that we’re left wondering what happened to the old him? A shadow of his former NFC champion self, Goff has been looking a bit inconsistent, though definitely fantasy relevant this season. I still don’t trust him much this week, but there are worse options out there.

Kupp and Woods are both electric and are worthy of consideration in any given week and against any matchup. There is also Josh Reynolds at a steep discount if you’re searching for a bargain. The 9ers defense may be riddled with injuries but they’ve held strong. But they have been susceptible to points through the air.

Tyler Higbee is currently questionable. If he’s ruled out, Everett will likely see enough volume to be fantasy relevant. If Higbee starts he’ll be the TE to have, but may lack enough volume to return value against a rigid defense.

I’m willing to venture a guess and say that Henderson is still the back to own in this offense. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Malcolm Brown steals the goal line work again. Needless to say, it’s easy to guess wrong about who’s going to do well in any given week. But all three backs are cheap and could easily outperform their cost.

Carolina Panthers @ Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings have been tearing it up lately, but the Panthers are well-positioned to stop that momentum.

Bridgewater has been a pleasant surprise to fantasy players this season. His consistency should remain intact as he takes on a tough, but still vulnerable Vikings defense.

Mike Davis is likely to be the lead back once again as McCaffrey is currently doubtful. Davis has filled in well and exceeded most expectations and is currently a top 10 back in PPR scoring. The Vikings have been susceptible to receiving backs with injuries to their linebackers, giving Davis plenty of upside this week.



As for the receivers, not much needs to be said at this point in the season. The Vikings defense is most susceptible to the passing attack. All three wide receivers are averaging double-digit points so far this season. That math adds up to a lot of fantasy production. I’m drawn to Samuel as he is by far the cheapest option, but budget will be the primary factor in deciding which receivers to take.
