Notorious' NFL DFS Core Plays: Week 12

I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving. I got to see my family for the first time in about a month and I had a profitable day of DFS. That’s a combination that is difficult to beat. The core plays really made a difference, as Deshaun Watson, Will Fuller, and Antonio Gibson were the three highest scoring players of the slate. If you had those three players, it was hard to not to cash. We now turn our attention to the main slate. The Steelers/Ravens game was originally added to the main slate on DraftKings, but it has now been rescheduled for Tuesday. Avoid targeting any players from that game.

    The Bills did a deep dive into their running game over the bye week. You should see the Bills do what SEA has done, run more to to help out their D. Hebert struggles under pressure and the Bills should be able to take a bit from what MIA did to him and what BUF did to SEA and slow him down. Buf D/Moss stack in play.
