Welcome to the DFS Playbook for NFL Week 12!

We've got quite the interesting slate this week given the vast number of high-end options off the slate due to Thanksgiving, the Packers/Vikings game being flexed to Sunday night, the Deshaun Watson /DeAndre Hopkins tandem playing Monday and both the Rams and Chiefs on a bye.That doesn't mean we don't have some killer options to play with, because we most certainly do, but it changes the way we are going to structure our lineups this week. Given the value we're seeing at running back this week and the lackthereof at the receiver position, it looks like a week where we pay down in the backfield and float some high-end, high-cost wideouts. Where we go with QB and TE will determine which side we want to pay down, but we should have examples of both as each strategy could prove to be successful.

We'll do some additional bargain-hunting in the DFS Dart Board, but for now, here's where the Playbook is at right now. And as we saw last week, you're always going to want to check back for any potential add-ons.
