(Maximum Sports Channels – Phil Naessens) Week twelve of the main slate at FanDuel has twelve games. There are several ways to go with this and it should be quite the interesting week. The Tight End situation for week 12 is going to be very interesting. I think I have five players who have good opportunities to score some points this week and here they are.

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge ($4800) isn’t having the season many expected but he does have a very good opportunity this Sunday against a New York Giants defense allowing TE’s to average 65.8 yards a game. This season Barnidge has 39 receptions for 457 yards and one touchdown and that’s good enough for a 6.7 FanDuel points a game average. Barnidge also has six Red Zone targets this season catching two of them for a touchdown. Vegas set the over under at 45 points with the Giants being an early week seven point favorite.

Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta ($4900) has a very good opportunity against a Cincinnati Bengals defense allowing TE’s to average 68.2 yards a game. Pitta has 49 receptions for 405 yards and no touchdowns but does have five Red Zone targets catching three of them that is worth 6.5 FanDuel points a game. Vegas has set a 40 point over under with the host Ravens an early week four point favorite. The wind will be blowing at about 11 miles an hour and hopefully Pitta can get a few targets sent his way this week.

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett ($5500) has a good opportunity against a New York Jets defense allowing TE’s to average 59.2 yards a game. Bennett has been solid this season with 39 receptions for 518 yards and four touchdowns including nine Red Zone targets catching six of them for three touchdowns for a 9.6 FanDuel points a game average. Vegas set a 48 point over under with the visiting Patriots an early week 7.5 point favorite. With Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski out this week Bennett will probably see plenty of targets thrown his way Sunday.

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen ($7000) has a good opportunity this week against a Oakland Raiders defense allowing 69.2 yards a game to TE’s. This season Olsen has 54 receptions for 745 yards and three touchdowns plus 12 Red Zone targets catching seven of them for two touchdowns. All of that has earned Olsen a 12.2 FanDuel points a game average. Vegas set the over under at 50.5 points with the home team Raiders and early week three point favorite. The winds will be blowing at 13 miles an hour and Olsen will probably be the heaviest owned player this week.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham ($6900) has a good opportunity this week against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense allowing TE’s to average 58.7 yards a game. Graham has 45 receptions this season for 639 yards and four touchdowns as well as ten Red Zone targets catching five of them for three of those four touchdowns. Vegas set the over under at 45 points with the Seahawks a six point road favorite. It should be a nice day with nine mile an hour winds in Tampa Bay and much like Olsen I think Graham will be heavily owned this week.

Good luck at FanDuel!
