Week 12 College Football DraftKings DFS Projections

A lineup optimizer that accounts for player salaries and uses projections to maximize expected points.

Below are our comprehensive week eight projections to help identify the top plays on DraftKings on a weekly basis. These projections will be updated throughout the week based on injury news, any key depth chart changes, or any severe weather. If there is a severe change in a player's projections we will call that out in a message up top as well as highlight the players in red if they received a significant downgrade and green if they received a significant upgrade.

The Points/Salary takes a look at which players are the top value plays of the week.
