Fanduel Week 12 Review: Our Picks


As we do every week, its time to take a look back at how we did with our predictions. Week 12 was the rare week in that there were 3 games on Thursday allowing for competitions both during the week and on the weekend. Lets take a look at how we did...

Week 12 - Thursday
QB - Matt Schaub  $7,800          15.5
There were much better plays in week 12 than Schaub. Coming off a career day week 11, Schaub appeared to have the hot hand. Houston did most of its damage on the ground with the likes of Foster (see below) and Justin Forsett (controversial 81-yard TD).
RB - Arian Foster  $8,900           26.2

Another solid day for Foster with 102 yards on the ground with two touchdowns and 5 receptions for 15 yards. One of the most reliable players each week. Sometimes it just makes sense to pony up for great match-ups.
WR - Julian Edelman  $5,000     11.7

Got in the end-zone (along with everyone else on the Patriots) for the second week in a row. Pretty good bargain play for those in Thursday only leagues.
TE - Jason Witten   $5,600          11.9

9 receptions for 74 yards - could have been a much better day for Witten who had several costly drops for owners. Thanks to a pass-exclusive second half after Dallas dug themselves a big hole, Witten was able to salvage some value for owners.
K - Shayne Graham   $5,200      11.0

Two missed field goals could have made for a better day. Overall, not a terrible play.
DEF - New England   $5,600      25.0

Play of the week! The Patriots defense made Mark Sanchez and the Jets look foolish with five turnovers and a pair of defensive touchdowns. "When in doubt, take the team playing the Jets," pays off again.

Week 12 - Sunday
Match-up -
Andrew Luck $8,400           14.6

240 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception. Not the big day from Luck that we were hoping for. A kick return touchdown and a run focus Bills team cost him a few series and thus several points.
Bargain - Colin Kaepernick   $5,500      20.94

258 total yards and a pair of touchdowns (1 run, 1 pass). Great bargain play at just five and half. Those who went Kaepernick were sure to be happy with their selection.
Match-up - Chris Johnson  $8,000          11.9

109 total yards but no touchdowns. Didn't take advantage of the great match-up that he had. A bit of a disapointment for what he cost.
Bargain - Marcel Reece  $6,400             12.3

74 yards rushing, 4 receptions for 29 yards. No trips to the end-zone this week leads to a ho-hum performance for those who went cheap with Reece. With McFadden expected back for week 13 this was likely his last chance for a productive week.
Match-up - Roddy White  $7,300             8.2

5 receptions for 57 yards. Ouch! Julio Jones lit up the Tampa Bay secondary and was Matt Ryan's go to guy throughout. That makes 5 games in a row without a TD for White. He is a good candidate for a bounce back week against New Orleans in week 13.
Bargain - Cecil Shorts  $6,000                 18.5

105 yards and a touchdown. Another great day for Shorts. He and Blackmon both seem to have developed a good relationship with new QB Chad Henne. Worth keeping an eye on for future weeks.
Match-Up - Jermaine Gresham  $5,500    12.1

4 receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown. Another week with a TD for Gresham who has become a good red zone target for Andy Dalton. Pretty good week 12 play.
Bargain - Dallas Clark   $5,200

David Akers  $5,000                                  7.0
Nothing special here as San Francisco did most of its damage with touchdowns.

Denver  $5,400                                          8.0
Not the monster day we were expecting. In fact, Kansas City led for a good portion of the first half. There were far better plays out there this week.

Like most weeks, hit big on a few, missed on a couple. Hope our advise was able to make you some money week 12. Stay tuned for our week 13 plays of the week!
