Fantasyland – Week 12 Daily Fantasy Quarterback Recommendations
The NFL season is almost over so try for your big score this week.
If you followed our advice last week hopefully you selected our top pick at the quarterback position, Aaron Rodgers.
He was the top performing quarterback in many formats and was only one of three QBs to throw for three touchdowns last weekend. Let us know if you used him and had a big score on DraftKings or FanDuel.
This week we’ll offer you our QB pics once again, and we will also take a look at some QBs that we think you should steer clear of.
In what can be looked at as the revenge game, quarterback Josh McCown and head coach Lovie Smith returned to Soldier Field to take on their former team. And though they may try and rack up the points on the Bears, their defense is simply not good enough to stop Jay Cutler and the Bears aerial attack. But, be sure to check the weather before game time. Forecast calls for rain which could change the game plan to a running attack.
Yep, him again. Rodgers has been hot, and we see no reason for that to change when he travels to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. Even though the Vikings held him in check in their first meeting of the year, Rodgers is on a roll, the Green Bay defenses is on a roll, and Minnesota is starting a rookie quarterback.
Luck is at home once again, but unlike last week he will be facing the weak Jacksonville defense. The Colts lost their top-performing running back last week (Bradshaw), which will likely force Luck to throw the ball even more than he would have otherwise. Look for Luck to bounce back from a mediocre game in grand fashion.
Brees is at home this week where he normally performs at his highest level. He is also facing the Baltimore Ravens pass defense which allows a ton of points to opposing quarterbacks. We know he’s down his rookie starting wide receiver, but Brees still has plenty of weapons from which to choose and could have his best game of the season in prime time on Monday night.
Sometimes you just have to go cheap at the QB position, and that’s why our value pick of the week is Tennessee quarterback Zach Mettenberger. He had a decent showing in prime time against the Steelers in this week he faces a much easier defense (though not at home) in the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles ranked dead last in the league in points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Look for Mettenberger to have a big game.
Some of the QB’s that we like include the Manning brothers, Tony Romo, Josh McCown and Joe Flacco.
Quarterbacks we think you should steer clear of this week include Russell Wilson, Philip Rivers, RG III and Michael Vick.
There are only six weeks left in the NFL regular season, so you gotta take your shots at these big prize pools while they are still there. DraftKings is offering $2.2 Million contest with $1 million going to the first place winner for only $27, and FanDuel offers a $2.5 Million contest where nearly 20% of the entries will win double their money for only $25.
When you’re smiling in the winner’s circle about to collect all your cash make sure to tell them “F5 poker sent you“, and make sure to check in tomorrow for our recommendations at the RB position.
