Time for some Week 12 Fantasy Football starts and sits! Let’s get it!
START - DeVante Parker @ NYJ
The Jets have been abysmal as a whole this season, and especially so on defense. Not only that, but Parker gets to play with Ryan Fitzpatrick at QB a who allowed him to be a Top 5 WR last year. Oh yeah and the Dolphins are completely deprived of offensive weapons without Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Preston Williams, and others.
START - Wayne Gallman @ CIN
Gallman has a total of 5 Rushing TDs in his last 4 Games, and with Devonta Freeman continuing to be sidelined by an ankle injury, Gallman is in line for another heavy workload in a great matchup against Cincy.
START - Christian Kirk @ NE
So Larry Fitzgerald is out, DHop gets the Stephon Gilmore shadow, and Kirk has been averaging 7 Targets a game over the last 4 Games. He’s in a nice position to have a decent game, makes for a sneaky good flex play.
START - Justin Jefferson vs CAR
This could easily be a Dalvin Cook 40 Point game, but with Adam Thielen and Irv Smith out, the ball has got to SOMEWHERE. It’s a good matchup for JJ and Teddy will keep this game close enough to where the Vikings do throw the ball.
START - Michael Pittman vs TEN
He lost some targets last week, but Pittman is still very much in the process of breaking out. The matchup is good and he had success in the same spot last time around. Pittman has lead his team in receiving yards, catches, and targets since Week 9, and I expect him to continue his play in this great matchup.
- Kyle Rudolph vs CAR; With both Thielen and Irv Smith ruled out, Rudolph could see a couple extra targets floated his way, assuming this is a close enough game. If you are in a tight spot at TE this week, Rudolph may not be a bad play.
- Brian Hill vs LV; He’s in a great spot with a great matchup, but I’m worried about this backfield being more a committee than some might think. Qadree Ollison has a nose for the endzone and Ito Smith has flashed as a pass catcher. Nonetheless, Hill has been good when given the chance and is projected to see a bulk of the workload.
SIT - Carson Wentz vs SEA
QBs going up against Seattle is typically a smash spot, but with a depleted OL and just overall poor QB play I don’t trust Wentz here. Carlos Dunlap has really given Seattle a boost when it comes to getting after the QB and Wentz has really broken down when under pressure.
SIT - Damien Harris vs ARI
Harris has been great for the Patriots, but Sony Michel is now returning to the lineup, and this week’s game script calls for more of James White. Best to let him hit the bench for this week as he may not see the field much.
SIT - Darrell Henderson vs SF
Trying to predict this Rams backfield is insanely stressful. But, with their LT out, the Rams have once again flipped their offensive philosophy mid season and have turned back into a pass heavy offense. Which leads limited work in the backfield with a three man rotation. Plus matchup isn’t great either.
SIT - Jarvis Landry @ JAC
I have NO idea of what to make of this Browns offense. I mean what an absolute mess. Other than the RBs of course. Which against Jacksonville is a dream for the Browns who just want to run down their opponents throats.
SIT - Tee Higgins vs NYG
Higgins or AJG will have the tough assignment of matching up against James Bradbury on the outside. It’s unclear on which one he will choose to shadow, or takes turns going to both. But regardless with Brandon Allen at QB I’m going to stay far, far away.
- The Entire Broncos Football Organization vs NO;
Just don’t. They are literally playing without a QB. Don’t get cute, stay away. Now.
- Raheem Mostert @ LAR; First game back off serious injury, Jerick McKinnon is active and potentially splitting the offensive work. Plus the matchup is one of the worst in the entire league.
