Yahoo DFS Pick Week 12: NFL DFS Lineup Tips for Daily Fantasy Football GPP Tournaments

Week 12 sees Kansas City and Arizona on a break, and Thanksgiving and the regular Sunday and Monday night games knock 10 teams off our top roster. If you’re keeping track, that leaves just 20 teams up for grabs for our week 12 Yahoo DFS lineups. Since we play in GPP tournaments, many of our picks are boom or bust in nature. We’d rather fail in the pursuit of big money than make “safe” picks and end up with a lineup unable to pay a lot if things go well.

We like the idea of ​​spending big on our backfield and WR1 and pairing those guys up with some underrated sleepers. This is a popular strategy in GPP tournament formats.

Before we break down our picks, just a reminder of a few key rules for Yahoo DFS. It is essentially the same as FanDuel, with Four-point pass TD and Semi point PPR.

Yahoo DFS Picks Week 12: NFL DFS lineup for GPP tournaments

Sunday’s main board, $ 200 budget, no more than six players from the same team.

  • There is no secret sauce or cheeky consideration with our inclusion of Rodgers at this place. He’s coming off 33.5 fantasy points, a performance he’s unlikely to repeat this week, but he’s broken through the 20-point barrier five times this season overall. The Rams aren’t cupcakes, but Rodgers is a future Hall of Famer for a reason.

  • Mixon converted a whopping 30 carries into 24.3 fantasy points, the third time in four games that he eclipsed the 23.0-point benchmark. The Steelers are traditionally tight-fisted against the run, but the volume is on Mixon’s side. He’s had three games of five or more goals, so the Bengals have multiple ways to get the ball to Mixon if it’s hard to get open lanes to run.

  • Robinson is still trying to get back to the form that led him to three straight fantasy 20-plus-point performances earlier this season, and given the Falcons’ recent streak, another streak could start this week. With a touchdown in each of his last two games, Robinson continues to find the end zone. It will be a threat to find paydirt again on Sunday in addition to high quality production in the yardage department.

  • Godwin had a healthy 16.2 fantasy points despite six modest goals last week, but scored a touchdown in three of his last four. The Colts are hot, winning three on the spin and five out of six. However, the Bucs boast the best offense in the league based on DVOA, and Godwin is a solid bet to deliver another solid performance.

  • Johnson has dominated the goals, winning 13 in five of his last seven games. These aren’t low-calorie possibilities either – he has an average catch of 12.7 yards in that span. With so many high-quality looks heading to him on a weekly basis, he’s an easy option to include in our lineups this week. The Steelers aren’t shy about using their receivers on designed runs either, so there’s often an extra chance or two for a big play.

  • Call us crazy, but we’re calling Cooks again. Last week’s lackluster effort can be explained by bad weather and a heavy gameplay script. The Jets aren’t likely to force a barn burn, but Cooks has scored at least 15.7 fantasy points and won more than 11 goals four times. We have not seen the last of his good work this season.

  • The Falcons have been completely dominated in each of their last two games, so they will be eager to remove that bitter taste from their palette. Pitts believes it will play an important role in his ability to do that. He’s been a little quiet lately, competing with Bill Belichick and the Patriots didn’t help, but this is a great place for him to reintroduce himself as one of the most dynamic offensive weapons in the game.

  • While Dillon failed to deliver the fantasy production we all wanted, he still played reasonably well. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry on 11 bags and staggered on his six goals. Dillon represents a canny stack with Rodgers, especially considering the defensive attention No. 1 receiver Davante Adams will attract from the Rams’ Jalen Ramsey. Dillon can produce on the ground, in the air and in the red zone, and he’s a solid bet to provide a more substantial score on Sunday.

  • Rolling with the Texans here is as much about casting the Jets, who will be Zach Wilson’s starters, as it is about acknowledging the recent streak the Texans are enjoying. Their fantasy production over the last two weeks (31 points) exceeds the points they have yielded to opponents (30). They also sacked the quarterback six times and generated 10 turnovers in that span.
