I’m grateful for a great many things, but not listening to myself for FanDuel tournaments last week is not one of them.

There was a GPP-winning lineup in my list of “players I like this week” (I did the math), but I personally didn’t put the puzzle pieces together the right way. Hopefully one of you did.

Below are some possible strategies for you to employ for Week 12 FanDuel GPPs.

This guide is focused on the Sunday main slate. For my Thanksgiving-only thoughts, check out this article. For the FanDuel cash game guide, click here.)


Quarterbacks I like in FanDuel tournaments this week:

Check out the cash game guide for more on Brissett, Ryan, and Wilson.

Brady is quite pricy at $9,100 but he maintains a high floor and a high ceiling. He’s carrying the Q-tag, so that might keep ownership a bit lower than usual. The Dolphins have given up two-plus passing scores in four of their past five games.

Newton has been hitting his ceiling on a fairly regular basis this year, and his rushing totals have been the stuff of fantasy dreams. He has 40-plus rushing yards in six of his past. Like Brady, Newton also carries the Q-tag, so his ownership might be lower. The Jets have given up multiple passing scores in six of their past seven.
