Last week was a fun one, let’s move on to Week 12! We are now almost officially two thirds of the way through the NFL season, so let’s keep it rolling! There are some key options back on the main slate this week, and I’m looking to take advantage. Time to cash in on some key options!
Be sure to jump into the WinDailySports Discord, and take advantage of our cheat sheets and projections while you build your lineups for Week 12 on FanDuel and DraftKings! Let’s continue to finish strong this season!
I just got done having a few conversations about how Kelce isn’t close to Rob Gronkowski all-time. For this week, this season, and these teams, that doesn’t matter at all. He is clearly the top TE in the NFL right now, and is coming off of a MONSTER 6-155-3 line against the Chargers.
This week he faces off against a Rams team that is just a complete mess. They sold their future for a Super Bowl run last year, and the zebras made sure they closed the deal. Now all of a sudden, they barely even have a present. Sitting at 3-7 and their playoff hopes sitting as high as your odds to win the Mega Millions…this season is a wrap.
Kelce is elite in every way, and Kansas City will need to rely on him once again as they continue their run toward the #1 seed and a bye in the AFC Playoffs.
George Kittle, 49ers ($5,300 DraftKings, $6,300 FanDuel)
Coming off his best game of the season and inexplicably sitting behind Taysom freaking Hill in salary on FanDuel, Kittle is ready to explode. He now has four touchdowns in his last three games. The Saints have been tough against opposing TE this season. With the playoff picture rounding into form, I’m focusing on elite options with a lot to play for this season.
Kittle had a slow start to the season due to injury, but Jimmy Garoppolo is back to relying on his top target. This offense is absolutely loaded with talent now, and Jimmy G may be the least talented of the bunch. That matter little here, as Kittle remains an elite option in any matchup.
Please join me in welcoming Gerald Everett to the dream matchup that is the Arizona Cardinals defense. I’m sure you’re tired of hearing this by now, but I’m not here to worry about that. Your weekly update is that Arizona is now allowing just over 21 fantasy points per game to opposing Tight Ends.
Everett hasn’t found the end zone since Week 4, but I’m banking on that changing this week. He has seen 7+ targets in four of the last five weeks, and should be heavily involved again this week.
His salary is reasonable and this game has the highest total of the main slate. With the Chargers’ issues among their WR health, Everett should be utilized as a weapon in an elite matchup.
Mark Andrews, Ravens ($6,500 DraftKings, $7,300 FanDuel)
I’ve been talking all year about great matchups for TE, and this one is a smash spot. The Jags have had a tough time against TE of late, and Andrews is still the top option in a sputtering Ravens offense.
Due to injury and inconsistency by the offense, Andrews hasn’t totaled more than 12.3 DraftKings points since Week 6. Any takers on the under this week? Not me. His return last week was solid with a 6-63 line despite the offense being incapable of moving the ball against the PANTHERS.
This offense may be a complete trainwreck, but Andrews remains an elite option. Expect Lamar Jackson to rely heavily on him in this one as the Ravens continue their trek toward the playoffs.
Welcome to yet another edition of picking on the Seattle Seahawks. This one is about that (Seattle has allowed over 19 PPG to the position this season. It is also about the fact that the Raiders have been a disaster on offense aside from Josh Jacobs and Davante Adams.
No team in the NFL has been a bigger disappointment than the 3-7 Raiders, but it seems evident that they will fight until the end. Darren Waller is on the IL and Moreau is the guy now by default. I don’t love his upside, but he is a solid floor play in this matchup. The Raiders need a true miracle to find their way into the postseason again in 2022. Moreau and company will need to find a way to even keep that dream alive into Week 13.
Come find me on Twitter and let’s chat some football! Good luck in Week 7, and let’s meet at the top of the leaderboards!
