Sunday night football fans
The Week 12 Sunday Night Football game that pits Raven against the Browns in what has been a quiet confrontation between divisions has been underrated in recent seasons. Both the Ravens and the Browns will welcome reinforcements back to the fold, which will add some water to this game – and our FanDuel one-game lineup. The Las Vegas sportsbook doesn’t give off an impression of fireworks, the Raven setting is a 4.5-point home favorite with an overall opening score of 45.5, but there’s still plenty of compelling DFS options in this book. .
Here are the notable scoring settings for FanDuel’s single game competitions: The total score for “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, but he doesn’t cost him any extra money like “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown competitions. FanDuel’s default score is Half point PPR and TDs pass four points, and have are not bonuses for 300 yard / 100 yard matches as on DraftKings.

FanDuel Single Game Choice DFS: Browns vs. Ravens
$60,000 budget, need at least one player from each team
MVP (1.5x points) QB Lamar Jackson, Ravens ($17,000)
Jackson was the most dynamic player in Sunday night’s game, so he was an easy pick for our MVP spot. He’s passed the 30-point FanDuel mark three times this season, and the Browns have been generous to the quarterbacks. Buying into invented stories is 100 percent optional, but after defeating the Dolphins at Week 10 and missing Week 11 against the Bear because of illness, he will develop an itchy rash.
FLEX RB Nick Chubb, Browns ($13,000)
Chubb won’t have a backyard entirely to himself with Kareem Hunt expected to return, but he has averaged 19 touchdowns in competitions when both are active this year. He’s also crossed the 20 FD point plateau twice in that span of time, so it’s no wonder he’s incapable of doing big things while sharing the workload.

FLEX WR Marquise Brown, Crow ($12,500)
Brown (thigh) missed last week’s competition after a miss of his own in Week 10, but he is dominating the goals, earning 39 in his past three games. That three-game span included two performances above 16.0 FanDuel points, and he crossed that threshold six times all season. With Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman garnering a big chunk of Cleveland’s attention, Brown will get the chance to do some big plays.

FLEX RB Kareem Hunt, Browns ($11,000)
The Browns could easily get Hunt back into action after a long layoff, but he doesn’t necessarily have to allocate enough maneuvers to make a significant dent. He made a total of five touchdowns in his first six games and numbers to continue his role as a dual threat weapon in the backyard. There’s some risk to him immediately upon his return, but DFS players shouldn’t be afraid to roll the dice.
WEEK 12 DFS: Best value | Squad Builder
FLEX TE Rashard Higgins, Browns ($6,000)
Higgins proved to be capable in 2020 as he received more chances on fouls. He finished with just five goals last week, but that number is third above the Browns and accounts for a respectable 17.9% target share. He scored at least 14.0 FanDuel points on three occasions last year and is someone Baker Mayfield may need to rely on relatively heavily on Sunday night.
