The top DFS bargains for Week 12
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
This is the night when we do all our last Thanksgiving grocery shopping. Thursday, we feast. And the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest bargain-hunting day of year.
If you’re like me, shopping isn’t your thing. The idea of trampling over people in Wal-Mart to get some ridiculous toy your kid will only like for a week doesn’t make sense to me.
Things that do make sense: DFS bargains. No trampling required.
Thanksgiving day bargains
Sam Bradford, QB, Minnesota Vikings (at Detroit)
FanDuel: $6,700 (27th)
DraftKings: $5,100 (28th, tied)
Yahoo: $28 (22nd)
It’s hard to get excited about playing the steady Bradford, but he has some definite upside this week. First, he’s thrown 12 touchdowns to only two interceptions this year. The last time he played Detroit (in Week 9), he threw for 273 yards and a touchdown. If he can score two touchdowns instead of one, that’s a nice fantasy day for a quarterback in his price range. All season long the Vikings have struggled on the offensive line. Last week Bradford adjusted, and his average throw time was 2.19 seconds, the second-fastest in the league.
