The Chicago Bears and Green bay Packers will wrap up Sunday’s Week 12 NFL action at Lambeau Field in an NFC North battle. The Packers have control in the division and will attempt to hold off the second place Bears. Both teams have recently gotten significantly healthier at important skill positions so finding value for DFS upside could be difficult. We’ve identified a few options on DraftKings worth considering under $5,000.

Top value plays

Darnell Mooney, WR, Bears ($4,800)

Mooney has operated as Chicago’s WR2 for most of the year. The rookie has bumped Anthony Miller down a spot on the depth chart and has gotten a ton of exposure in recent weeks. While his stats are almost identical to Miller’s, he’s played 69 more snaps. Only Allen Robinson, Nick Foles, and Davis Robinson have played more snaps than Mooney among skill players and his speed gives him big-play potential.

Jamaal Williams, RB, Packers ($3,400)

Aaron Jones is the stud in Green Bay’s running back room but Williams split snaps with him down the middle in Week 11. While Williams only tallied five carries for 12 yards in his last outing he also caught a touchdown pass. He might not get a ton of volume but has a versatile skill set. It’s rare that backups playing behind a fantasy star get this much burn.

Mason Crosby, K, Packers ($3,400)

The Packers have a dynamic offense but the Bears have given up the sixth-fewest points per game in the NFL this season. If Green Bay moves the ball well but can’t finish drives look for Crosby to get a few easy field goals in the red zone area. Chicago ranks 24th against kickers on DraftKings so a middle-of-the-pack kicker like Crosby could get a sizable bump in production.
