Week 12 is an odd one for the NFL, as there were four games between Thursday and Friday, which means that there are fewer DFS options to choose from on Sunday’s slate. That said, there are still some good value options to choose from. Here’s a look at the best tight ends to pick from.

NFL DFS Picks, Week 12: TE value plays

Trey McBride, Cardinals vs. Rams, $4,700

McBride’s combined for nearly 300 yards receiving over his last four games and has at least five receptions in three of his last five games. McBride’s been a target machine since Zach Ertz got hurt and will be going against a Rams team that he had 62 yards on four catches against earlier this season.

Cole Kmet, Bears vs. Vikings, $4,400

While Kmet only had 20 yards on three receptions last week in Justin Fields’ first game back under center, he’s due for a breakout game, as he recorded at least 38 yards in four of the first five games he played with Fields. Plus, he going against the Vikings, who have the eighth-worst passing defense in the NFL.

Evan Engram, Jaguars vs. Texans, $4,200

The good news: Engram’s had at least six targets in his last 10 games. The bad news: he hasn’t scored a touchdown this season and has combined for just 41 yards over the last two games. Even with that scoring drought, Engram’s still a good option just due to his steady presence in the Jaguars offense.
