Our Week 12 DraftKings DFS cash guide helps you build an optimal lineup by giving you the best player picks and sleepers based on matchup and expected workload.

Below are some of the players I’m considering for my cash lineups in Week 12. Some things may change between now and Sunday (injury news later in the week is one of the most important things to pay attention to for DFS), but this should give you a good starting point when building cash lineups for Week 12.

The “Top Value” charts above show the top values based on projections and salary. However, not all of the players included in the charts should be considered cash game options. The charts are meant to show you — at a glance — which players have the most favorable salary-to-projection ratios, but when selecting players for your cash lineup, other factors need to be considered.


DraftKings – Top QB Values – Week 12

Player Team Matchup $ Projection Value
Josh McCown NYJ NE $4,300 17.8 4.14
Kirk Cousins MIN GB $5,500 22.6 4.11
Cam Newton CAR SEA $6,200 23.7 3.82
Aaron Rodgers GB @MIN $5,800 22.1 3.81
Jameis Winston TB SF $6,000 22.2 3.70
Lamar Jackson BAL OAK $5,700 20.9 3.67
Ben Roethlisberger PIT @DEN $6,100 22.1 3.62
Carson Wentz PHI NYG $5,900 21.1 3.58
Matt Ryan ATL @NO $6,100 21.4 3.51
Andrew Luck IND MIA $6,400 22.2 3.47

Pricey: Andrew Luck ($6,400) has at least three touchdowns in seven straight games, and he’s at home this week in a game with the second-highest over/under on the main slate (51).

Mid-tier price: Jameis Winston ($6,000) returns under center and will serve as a home favorite in a game with the highest over/under on the main slate (55).
