NFL Week 12 action is here. Here are five recommended plays to help you win big in DraftKings GPP and cash-game competitions.
TE MARK ANDREWS, BALTIMORE RAVENS ($6,500 ON DRAFTKINGS) @ JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
- Baltimore boasts a promising 23.5-point implied team total at BetMGM.
- Baltimore’s offensive line garners a 22.0% pass-blocking matchup advantage rating in PFF’s OL/DL matchup chart, ninth-best on the week.
- Tight end Mark Andrews (81.5 PFF receiving grade) comes in with a chalky 10.5% rostership rate in PFF’s ownership projections, but his delectable $6,500 salary is $1,200 less than that of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. He’s a high-end option in both cash games and GPP tournaments and should be considered as a flex play for lineup differentiation.
- Nos. 1 and 2 wide receivers Demarcus Robinson (hip, 70.3 PFF receiving grade) and Devin Duvernay (hamstring, 70.7 PFF receiving grade) are questionable.
- No. 2 tight end/featured pass-catcher Isaiah Likely (61.6 PFF receiving grade) appeared on the injury report Friday with an ankle ailment.
- Andrews gets the NFL’s premier tight-end-versus-linebacker matchup against Jacksonville’s Devin Lloyd (37.6 PFF coverage grade).
- PFF’s TE matchup chart gives Andrews a 14.0% matchup advantage rating, fourth-best on the Week 12 slate.
- The table below ranks Lloyd’s coverage data among 69 NFL linebackers with at least 125 coverage snaps.
|PFF Coverage Grade||Catch % Allowed||Yds Allowed/Cov. Snap||Explosive Pass Plays Allowed %||Open Target % – Missed Tackles Rec.|
|36.7 (T-No. 68)||85.0% (No. 57)||1.46 (No. 64)||3.1% (No. 61)||80.0% (No. 60) – 6 (T-No.59|
- The table below ranks Andrews among 35 NFL tight ends with at least 25 targets.
|PFF Receiving Grade||Per Routes Run %: Tgts – Yds||Catch % – Contested Catch %||YAC/Rec.||Pass Plays of 15+ Yards||Missed Tackles Forced Rec.|
|81.5 (No. 3)||27.7% (No. 1) – 2.12 (No. 2)||66.7% (T-No. 27) – 69.2% (No. 3)||3.6 (No. 26)||17 (T-No. 2)||3 (T-No. 12)|
