FanDuel DFS NFL picks and advice for Week 12 of the 2021 NFL season to help you build the perfect DFS fantasy football lineup.

Welcome back to another week of FanDuel DFS advice, this time for Week 12 of the NFL season. Hopefully, everyone had a fun Thanksgiving, and maybe even indulged in some Thanksgiving slate DFS. Week 11 was an interesting week for me, as I was heavily invested in the Ravens and Bears game before the Lamar Jackson news arrived, and I had to make some split-second decisions on who to play and who to remove from my lineup.

In hindsight, it would have been best to completely ignore that game, but I may have dodged a bullet because that game probably would not have been high-scoring even if Lamar played.

Looking ahead to Week 12, we have one of the smaller main slates of the year due to the larger Thursday slate. Players from the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders, New Orleans Saints, Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks, and Washington Football Team are all unavailable, so you are going to have to dig a little deeper in your lineup construction this week.

When talking about players I will reference the salaries and salary cap of a typical FanDuel tournament. I will also show a complete sample lineup, which consists of nine positions: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, FLEX, and DEF.

Note that your individual strategy should change based on the type of contests you enter, though I will reference different strategies for both cash and tournament formats.

Without further ado, here are picks and FanDuel DFS advice for every position for Week 12 of the NFL season!
