Chicago Bears DFS Spin

Darnell Mooney (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Mooney has been limited all week but wasn't hit with the questionable tag so he should be expected to play. Mooney saw his role jump with Allen Robinson, who is listed as doubtful this week, sidelined in Week 11. Coming off a 16-target game and now facing one of the league's worst secondaries, he is a candidate for WR2 numbers on the week.

Detroit Lions DFS Spin

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Lions are planning to start Jared Goff (oblique) in Week 12 against the Bears Thursday. Goff is officially listed questionable, but he's going to be under center. Even at less than 100%, Goff gives the Lions a better chance at competing for the Turkey Day win. Tim Boyle simply doesn't belong in the NFL after his disastrous Week 11 fill-in start.
