Welcome to the DFS Optimal Lineups for NFL Week 12!

We may need to do a little maneuvering and as I am building lineupos, I may need to use a player or two who might not be in the Playbook. This is probably more for GPP tournaments, though I'm looking at paying down at defense in cash, than anything else, but I just want to give you a heads up so no one freaks out. For example, to go opposite a Colts stack, I am going to need to get a piece of the Dolphins, expecting either some push-back from the opposition or the expectation of garbage-time production. Hence, an inclusion of Kenny Stills .

We also have a few situations to watch as we got some interesting yet aggravating news. First off, Melvin Gordon is still considered a game-time decision. A report this morning said that he would play, but if he's banged up, I don't know if I want to use him in my cash game lineups. How much work will he get? How much goes to Austin Ekeler ? I think there's enough value at the position...
