Raybon’s Week 12 DFS Picks and Preview: Justin Herbert vs. Josh Allen Will Reap Points

This article is a data-driven deep dive on strategic decision-making and roster construction for DFS cash games and tournaments. It relies heavily upon FantasyLabs’ extensive suite of analytical DFS tools, as well as advanced metrics and film study. First, I walk through narrowing down the player pool at each position. Then, I lay out how to choose the highest-floor lineup combinations for cash games. Finally, I go game-by-game to present the biggest edges (stacks, pivots, leverage opportunities, etc.) in each.

Week 12 shmoney time!

Quarterback (Cash)

  • Justin Herbert, Chargers ($7,200 DK, $8,400 FD) vs. LAC
  • Josh Allen, Bills ($7,600 DK, $8,600 FD) vs. LAC

Josh Allen leads all QBs in our NFL Player Models in floor, median and Projected Plus/Minus. Fresh off the bye, he will face a Chargers defense that has allowed multiple passing TDs in five straight games, a stretch in which they faced Gardner Minshew, Drew Lock, Derek Carr, Tua Tagovailoa and Joe Flacco.

Justin Herbert has surpassed salary-based expectations in every game this season and will have to put up big numbers again to try to keep pace with Allen and the Bills. Buffalo has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs this season.
