DK Buffet Week 12: Key Stats and Matchups for the Main Slate

When I’m looking into the DFS slate each week, I like to go game by game and identify players or situations that intrigue me. In every game, on every team, there’s a situation that’s relevant for DFS purposes, either positive or negative reason. It informs us of how we should be attacking each slate.

Arizona Cardinals

Implied Team Total: 16.5 Spread: +11.5 @ Los Angeles Chargers I don’t want to keep piling on Mike McCoy (I do) but what a difference a coaching change makes. David Johnson ($7,300) was averaging just 15 PPR points under McCoy. Under new offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, Johnson has averaged 22.6 PPR Points per game over the past three times they’ve taken the field. Targets are up a little and he’s seeing five more carries per game. Hopefully, they can begin to get him involved a bit more downfield, but we’ll take the bump in usage.
