NFL Playbook Cheat Sheet – NFL Week 12 – DFS Football


Playmaker Nation!!! Hello and welcome all once again to the NFL Playbook! Alex Krall (@AlexKrallDFS on twitter) here, and I want to personally welcome each and every one of you to the 12th week of regular season football and another fun week of NFL DFS!

In today’s Cheat Sheet, we have included DraftKings / FanDuel player projections into our cheat sheet as an added bonus. These projections come directly from the DPA Optimizer which is now available for purchase via our Playmaker Premium Package! We highly recommend upgrading from your Playmaker Classic package to Playmaker Platinum to get the most out of your DPA subscription while building lineups with our custom handmade player projections, and also to access the NFL Playbook Cheat Sheet below.

As we have been doing, we have simplified the cheat sheet for you to give you a better idea on how to narrow down your player pool and really nail your cash games in 2021-2022. Along with the Cash Game plays listed in the grid, please reference the GPP Heat Chart and Value Pool, and mix around players from each for your small field single entry contests. You’ll also notice that we’ve now included Cash/GPP differentiation throughout the cheat sheet, to help you ID which players are viable in which settings. Note that just because a player isn’t listed in the GPP Heat Chart, that it doesn’t mean they aren’t cash viable. The purpose of the GPP Heat Chart is to shed light on lower owned plays, but it does not mean that the players in the cash game player pool are not viable in tournaments. Make sure that when playing cash games, you are including members of the Primary Core (and some from the Alternate Core) to enhance your chance at cashing, as these will be the plays that DPA staff will deploy as well.

Our 45 member player pool has been tried and tested thoroughly, and I can say that we are prepared to take on the 12th week that the NFL season has to offer! My strategy for Week 12 is similar in nature to most other weeks: to build a CORE grouping for Cash Games and then take that same CORE/ALT CORE and apply it to my Tournaments lineups with variations in the other 4 slots, making differentiated lineups that include both the plays that I feel most confident in regardless of ownership, and other one-offs and alluring off-the-radar plays. Leveraging low owned plays and combining them with “cashier” plays will be pivotal to your GPP success as will building lineups that are tightly correlated. Keep a close eye on the NFL DPA Slack Chat for any information as it pertains to the slate, and we’ll be sure to share any relevant news closer to lock.

I know there has been some chatter about the lack of descriptions on the cheat sheet, so I’ve instead pivoted to a new format that will provide a cheat sheet summary in video form that will be posted exclusively to slack.

Also, be on the look out for The Daily Playmaker Show hosted by Zachary Williamson on Sunday morning at 11:00AM EST. The show will be held on our YouTube Channel and Zach would be happy to answer any questions for you all LIVE on the show!
