If at first you don’t succeed, try again. I took that mantra last week and struck gold with my DO Single Pick. That “A+” grade from, (hopefully) Biletnikoff Winner, Tylan Wallace vaulted our weekly in-house pick back to the top of the season leaderboard. With one week remaining in the regular season, it’s coming down to the wire. Here’s your Week 12 recap!

On to the Week 12 grades, class is in session!

Consensus Recap – Week 12

The Consensus continued its up and down season in Week 12. A 2.74 score positioned the Consensus in 7th out of the 16 experts that submitted selections.

Overall (Score: 2.74 / Rank 7th out of 16) – Eight of the 31 total plays finished with an “A” or better grade. That included “A+” grades from Taylor Cornelius, Dwayne Haskins, Tylan Wallace, Kelvin Harmon and Gary Jennings Jr.

Head of the Class – Week 12

Each week I will highlight a few of the top experts for the week. Here are the experts that deserve a “gold star” for Week 12 based on their cumulative grades for all players they touted this week. Overall, the scores cast a wide net this week.

#1) Daily Overlay Single Pick (Score: 10.00) proved that maybe I’m not so bad at this single pick thing after all. Though, when your pick is Tylan Wallace you’re bound to haul in an “A+” score.

#2) DFS Karma (Score: 6.40) scored another top-3 finish this week as they scored an “A+” with three of their five plays. Those perfect scores came from Wallace, Jennings and Anthony McFarland, who gaaaaaashed the Buckeyes defense all day.

#3) RG CFB Marketplace Projections (Score: 3.67) scored an “A” or better with five of their 15 plays including four “A+” grades. Those came from Haskins, Cornelius, Wallace and Harmon.

Head of the Class – Week 12 (By Position)

Sometimes there is just that one class that you excel in. In this section, I will highlight who the top experts were at each position for Week 12.

QB – RG Lineup Builder (7.50) scored an “A+” from Haskins and an “A” from Will Grier to take the top spot.

RB – DFS Karma (10.00) utlized Anthony McFarland to pick up an “A+” with their only selection at the position.

WR – Daily Overlay Single Pick (10.00) pulled in an “A+” score with Tylan Wallace at the WR position.

Study Time – Week 12

If we are going to give a gold star to the top experts of the week, we also need to determine which experts might need to put in some extra study time to pull up those grades. Here are the Week 12 experts that didn’t make the grade this week.

  • DailyRoto (Score: 1.67) struggled in Week 12 as eight of their 18 plays scored a failing grade.
  • DailyFantasySportsRankings (Score: 0.83) scored a failing grade with half of their six plays. No pick of their’s scored higher than a “C” grade.

Extra Credit – Week 12

In this section, I will look to give some extra credit to experts that received an A+ grade for a player where they were the lone expert to recommend. Week 12 extra credit goes to the following:

A+ – Jakobi Meyers (Athlon Sports)
A+ – Kennedy McKoy (FantasyCPR)
A+ – Terry McLaurin (FantasyCPR)
A+ – Taysir Mack (FantasyCPR)

Head of the Class – Season

Here are the top experts in the Overall Standings after Week 12 of the season. Our in-house Single Pick hops back into the lead.

#1) DailyOverlay Single Pick (Score: 4.08) takes a big leap back to the top with and “A+” grade from Tylan Wallace.

#2) DFS Karma (Score: 4.07) used another big week to really close the gap between themselves and 1st place.

#3) RG CFB Marketplace Projections (Score: 3.98) fell a couple of spots but still sit well within striking distance of the top.

#4) RG Consensus (Score: 3.74) still sits comfortably within the top-5 after dropping two spots.

#5) Sporting News (Score: 3.55) remains inside the top-5 but sits well behind the pack.

The DailyOverlay Industry Consensus moved up one spot in to 12th place in the overall standings out of 26 experts with a DO score of 3.03.
