Philly Sports Wave Week 12 DFS Sleepers
With this week being a shortened slate with three games played already on Thursday and the Pitt/Baltimore game moved to Tuesday night and still possibly not going to be played the choices are very limited.
With that being said, there will likely be a high ownership on many core players this week so one or two contrarian picks in your lineup that hit may be the ticket to a huge payday before the holidays!
Lets ride the wave into a winning holiday season!!!!
JB’S WEEK 12 PICKS
QB- DEREK CARR
He gets to face the Falcons in this one who have allowed over 20 pts in past 6 games. Carr has
performed well this year indoors and I expect that to continue against a Falcons team that
ranks 32 nd against the QB position this season.
BONUS- I also think Brady bounces back here against the Chiefs and Daniel Jones as well
RB- ZACH MOSS
Call this a hunch but I think the rookie is in for a nice game here , he looked like the lead back
heading into the bye and I think that continues against the Chargers who have allowed 8 TD to
RB’s over the last few games. He competes with Allen at the goal line I get it but I think he will
be fine here.
BONUS- I also like Wayne Gallman who has scored in 4 straight and had over 32 carries
combined inn a two week span… I also Like Jonathon Taylor looks like he may have turned the
corner last week.
WR- MICHAEL PITTMAN
He has emerged as the #1 receiver for Indy and has scored 34….. yes 34 pts in the past 2 games.
He gets to face the Titans again who he just torched 2 weeks ago, and I think he does the same
again here. We know in Philly Frank Reich is no dummy he will continue to keep Pittman heavily
BONUS- I also like DeVante Parker this week as well as Sterling Shepard, Stack him with Danny
TE- EVAN ENGRAM
Ugh I know this position is so thin but listen Engram had 3 straight games of double digit points
before his last game and I think he gets back on track against the Bengals who are 4 th in points
surrendered to the TE position this year .
BONUS- I also like Austin Hooper this week
25 total points given up, 13 sacks and 7 picks.. that is what this D has accomplished over just
the past 3 weeks give me that production
BONUS- I like the Giants D as well .. it was a theme of my bonuses I like a lot of Giants this
week. That sounded dirty to me and made me feel gross writing that .. Good Luck this week
The GOAT has had a few rough games lately and honestly there may be something to the old man's bed time being interrupted by prime time games. He typically goes to bed around 8:30 pm and he has looked like he is playing his sleep during these games so take form that what you want but I think he comes out firing against the KC secondary and lights them up for at least 2 TDs. Party time for the old man!
BONUS- Dan Jones should have a solid low cost performance, Russ Wilson always does well against the Birds and he plays them on MNF which is his showtime, and I am leaning throwing a few lineups with New Orleans STARTING QB, TASYSUM HILL in them.
RB- Josh Jacobs
Every week I think he is going to have a break out 3 TD game. I am waiting but this week I have convinced myself that it will happen. Mark it down for at least 2 TDs and 100+ yards.
Extra credit- Wayne Gallman is everything that JB said....and I love his TD streak continuing. TDs are what matters.
WR- Kennan Allen
He has shadily become a stud WR again. His young Qb loves him and that goes a long way. He is only still a sleeper because so many people have been hurt by him over the last couple of years. Take advantage while you can.
TE- Gronk or Fant (forced to choose someone different because Hockenson played already)
I should have just did Thurs-Monday lineups but since there are still come Sunday only slates I must advise one of these on and off Tightends to be on this week. Gronk needs to find the endzone and then his play is gold. I will likely play them in about 80% of my lineups.
Also: Goddert is still reliable and seems to be one of the only weapons on the Birds offense to click. Ertz may be coming back into the mix this week or next so this will likely be his last time to shine before losing some opportunities to Ertz.
DEF- Miami (not really a sleeper at this point)
They play the Jets.....you know what that means.
Extra cheese - The G-Men have a nice defense. There I said it! Now go play them and win some money!!!
