- It’s time to start building NFL DFS lineups for week 12
- OwnersBox $50K Sunday Smash contest is available to enter now
- Read below for three receivers to target in NFL DFS contests
NFL Week 12 is here and I’m going to give you some receiver options to anchor your lineups. If you have been paying attention to fantasy numbers throughout the first half, you would have noticed that we may be shifting away from the big point totals we’re used to running backs giving us and focusing on more receiver based builds, so finding guys to anchor your lineups is very important. For my builds at the receiver position I like to look at defensive pass DVOA and project usage from the top end receivers. Here are the 3 players to take in your OwnersBox week 12 NFL DFS lineups.
These players will also be priority targets when playing the new Lightning Lineups game on OwnersBox. Lightning Lineups is a unique user-vs-house game where the player is presented with three lineups of three players each. If you don’t like the lineups presented to you, you can spin the wheel to generate new matchups. All you have to do is select the lineup you think will score the most fantasy points. You can increase your payout by adding more opponent lineups and earn up to 6x your money!
DK Metcalf $6,000 vs Raiders
The Las Vegas Raiders rank last in the NFL in Pass DVOA, and the Seahawks have the best pass completion % in the NFL. The Seahawks have been able to get the ball in their playmakers hands all season leading them to a top 10 chance to win the Super Bowl according to Football Outsiders. Metcalf has been a target machine as well, with 25 targets in his last 3 games, and now he is in an absolute smash spot. With another week off for the Seahawks, they should have a big game through the air.
DK TD! @Seahawks take the lead!

DK Metcalf has some of the best opportunity numbers in all of football. He ranks in the Top 14 of Air Yards, Air Yards Share and Deep Targets. Adding to that, he has the 4th most red zone targets in the league, and the 3rd best target quality rating. I love DK in this spot and will be playing him all over.
Garrett Wilson $4,800 vs Bears
Zach Wilson is finally being benched for the Jets and this could be the best possible thing for their talented wideouts. Garrett Wilson has had a ton of opportunity for one of the best wideouts in football, and shouldn’t have been priced so low. The Chicago Bears have the 3rd worst pass defense DVOA and have had a tough time stopping anyone.

Garrett Wilson ranks in the Top 25 in Targets, Target Rate, Red Zone Targets, Yards after catch and Routes vs Man Coverage. Mike White was a lot more successful when he was running the offense for the Jets and I think he can get the ball in his playmakers hands, making everyone in this offense instantly more valuable especially for a cheap price like he is.
Treylon Burks $4,000 vs Bengals
Treylon Burks has returned from injury and been exactly what the Titans needed on the offensive front. From our rotoballer player profiles “Now, he’s set to face the Cincinnati Bengals, who have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers thus far. However, Bengals’ cornerback Chidobe Awuzie was a big reason for the team’s success against wideouts, and he’s expected to miss the rest of the regular season with a torn ACL. The Pittsburgh Steelers found ample success in the passing game against Cincinnati last week, so the matchup might not be as tough as it looks on paper. ”
Burks has done an incredible job being able to create separation so he can get the ball. He is ranked 5th in target separation at 2.20 yards and ranks14th best in average cushion at 5.40 yards. Burks seems to be the guy to take the top off for this Titans offense making him the most valuable to the team. I am riding with Burks to find his way into the endzone on Sunday.
