After playing just 15 snaps in his team debut, Odell Beckham is hoping the Rams' bye week will help him get up to speed in Sean McVay's offense. Los Angeles is also hoping for the same since it needs another wideout to pair with Cooper Kupp now that Robert Woods (knee) is out for the season. Beckham will take the field when the Rams visit the Packers in Week 12. Should Beckham be among your top NFL DFS picks? Should you roster him as part of your NFL DFS stacks?
At $5,000 on DraftKings and $5,800 on FanDuel, Beckham isn't among the 30 most expensive receivers in the NFL DFS player pool. Thus, rostering him means you can splurge on higher-priced options like Kupp and Davante Adams. Before locking in your NFL DFS picks for Week 12, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.
McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1 percent in more than a dozen other tournaments last season.
He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Week 12
One of McClure's top NFL DFS picks for Week 12 is Eagles running back Miles Sanders ($5,100 on DraftKings and $6,100 on FanDuel). Sanders returned to the field last week after missing three games and had his best game of the season. He carried the ball 16 times for 94 yards, both of which were season-highs.
Sanders is in line for even more touches in Week 12 due to Jordan Howard (knee) likely being sidelined. He also gets a matchup conducive to a slate-breaking game since the Giants have allowed the seventh-most Fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. New York has allowed opposing backs to average over 150 scrimmage yards over the last three games. With Sanders getting the bulk of touches in Philly's backfield, he's in line to reward daily Fantasy football players who roster him.
Another part of McClure's optimal NFL DFS strategy includes rostering Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase at $7,300 on DraftKings and $7,700 on FanDuel. Although his receiving numbers have been down the past few weeks, QB Joe Burrow has looked his way 38 times in the passing game over the last four weeks.
The Bengals take on a Steelers defense that held Detroit to just 77 passing yards two weeks ago, but were exposed by Justin Herbert and the Chargers in Week 11. For the season, Pittsburgh has been just below the league average in explosive plays allowed per game, which is one of the key elements in Chase's repertoire. Chase has been bottled up despite so many targets the last few weeks, and he's due to pop off in a crucial AFC North matchup for Cincinnati.
How to set NFL DFS lineups for Week 12
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Sunday. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments and cash games or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
