NFL Cash Game Lineup Advice: Week 12 (Thanksgiving Day Slate)

Nov 23, 2021

I’ve had one of my best fantasy football seasons ever, but man, last week was unlucky for me! I faced Jonathan Taylor in seven of the 19 leagues I’m currently in, leading to my worst week of the season. I also failed to use him in any of my DFS lineups, and it was easily the biggest mistake I’ve made all year. In any case, last week’s article went pretty well, and I can’t complain about any of the picks. This is all about the Thanksgiving slate here, though, and it’s always one of the best days of the year. I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and I hope that this article can help you make some dough!

NOTE: In the consideration section, DraftKings price is first, and FanDuel price is second!

The players below are ones I’m looking at for cash game considerations for Week 12:



Dak Prescott (DAL): $6,900, vs. LV
I am slightly concerned with Dak missing his top two receivers, but this guy has been one of the most reliable options in fantasy throughout his career. Before a dud on Sunday, Dak had at least 17 DraftKings points in seven of his first eight games, averaging 23.7 DK points per game. That’d be on par with the top guys in the NFL, and he should be able to reach that here, with Vegas sitting 26th in points allowed. The oddsmakers like him, too, projecting Dallas as a 6.5-point favorite in a game with a 51-point total. That’s the latest spread and biggest total of the Thanksgiving slate!
