DraftHustle’s Top DFS Plays of the week for FanDuel and DraftKings
Patrick Mahomes – KC vs Raiders
FanDuel - $8,700; DraftKings - $8,200
Week 12 is not filled with great matchups for QBs, so we are riding with the elites and my choice of the week is Patrick Mahomes. He has not put up his normal elite numbers this season, but his matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders is a good chance for this offense to get back on track. In his last full game against the Raiders in 2022, he passed for 292 yards and threw 4 TDs. His slightly discounted price from the other elite QBs makes him a solid cash game play with tourney winning upside.
Rhamondre Stevenson – NE vs Giants
FanDuel - $6,800; DraftKings - $5,800
Rhamondre Stevenson has been the only constant in the New England Patriots subpar offense this season, especially lately. He has at least 87 rushing yards in the last 2 games, and he has received at least 4 targets in his past 4 games. This week, he has an excellent matchup against the New York Giants, who give up the 3rd most rushing yards per game, 3rd most yards per carry and allow the 4th most FanDuel points per game to RBs this tear. Expect the Patriots to lean heavily on their run game this week, which will be great for Stevenson’s DFS prospects.
Stefon Diggs – BUF vs Eagles
FanDuel - $8,700; DraftKings - $8,800
Outside of the last 2 weeks, Stefon Diggs has been spectacular this year. He averaged 10 targets, 8 receptions, and 93 receiving yards per game in the first 9 weeks of the year, and the Bills will need to get him involved to keep up with the Philadelphia Eagles offense. Stefon should be able to take advantage of a good matchup, as the Eagles have allowed the most FanDuel PG and the 3rd most receiving yards to WRs this season. Lock Diggs safely in all cash game lineups this week.
Trey McBride – ARI vs Rams
FanDuel - $6,100; DraftKings - $4,700
Trey McBride is yet again my favorite TE play of the slate in week 12. He was solid in as great matchup last week and has another excellent matchup in week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams rank in the bottom 8 of the league in all major stats against TEs, including giving up the 7th most FanDuel PPG to the position. McBride has averaged 8 targets a game with Kyler Murray at QB for the Cardinals, and McBride should continue to be heavily involved.
Denver Broncos – vs Browns
FanDuel - $4,100; DraftKings - $3,200
The Denver Broncos are the D/ST of choice in week 12 as we are once again targeting the Cleveland Browns offense who will be starting a rookie QB. The Denver Broncos have been great after allowing 70 points to the Dolphins way back in week 3. The last 3 weeks they have averaged 11 FanDuel PPGs, which has included matchups against Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen. Lock Denver D/St safely in cash lineups in week 12.
