Wide Receivers

Michael Thomas, NO (vs. CAR) $9,300 – Outside of McCaffrey, Thomas has been the surest thing in DFS play. His price his obviously ridiculously high but it might be well worth it if he keeps up the pace.

Julio Jones, ATL (vs. TB) $8,000 – It was a big workload for Jones last week with six catches on eight targets for 91 yards and the Falcons now face the worst pass defense in the NFL. Jones could go off for a monster day.

Mike Evans, TB (at ATL) $7,300 – Evans not scoring in each of the last two weeks has downed his price a bit but that’s your advantage. The Falcons aren’t as good as they’ve looked the last two weeks and Evans can take advantage of them with a huge day.

Odell Beckham Jr., CLE (vs. MIA) $7,000 – The targets for Beckham have not only remained high but he’s been more productive lately. He’s bound to break out at some point and the Dolphins seem like the right matchup for it.

D.J. Chark Jr., JAX (at TEN) $6,400 – Chark has been a top-10 receiver in fantasy football this season and has rarely been shut down. It’s shocking his price isn’t higher and he could be a great play.

Jarvis Landry, CLE (vs. MIA) $6,300 – Revenge game from a guy who’s also been a top-20 PPR receiver this season in an offense that’s been improving lately? Landry is a guy you have to love in Week 12.

Jamison Crowder, NYJ (vs. OAK) $6,200 – In the DraftKings PPR format, you have to love Crowder. Darnold constantly peppers the wide receiver out of the slot and that won’t stop against Oakland’s lacking secondary.

Tyrell Williams, OAK (at NYJ) $5,900 – Of the receivers in Oakland, Williams has been the big-play guy. If he can find his way into the end zone against this bad Jets defense, he could be worth this price.

James Washington, PIT (at CIN) $5,000 – JuJu is out on Sunday and Diontae Johnson isn’t at 100 percent. That means Washington is Pittsburgh’s WR1 by default in that scenario, which increases his value a great deal.

A.J. Brown, TEN (vs. JAX) $4,700 – Risk is in the DNA of playing Brown on DraftKings as he’s been inconsistent. With the way Jacksonville’s defense is playing, however, it might be worth the gamble.

Josh Gordon, SEA (at PHI) $4,200 – Though this might look better if Lockett were not able to play, Gordon’s debut for the Seahawks was intriguing as he got work late in the game on limited snaps. After the bye week, he could possibly toast a bad Eagles secondary.

Russell Gage, ATL (vs. TB) $3,900 – Nine targets over the last two games for Gage and facing an awful Bucs pass defense makes him a potential value play at this price.

Tim Patrick, DEN (at BUF) $3,000 – The value of Patrick is intriguing. Though questionable, he had four catches for 77 yards last week and is a bargain-bin special if you need a super cheap play.
