Fantasy Football: Week 12

Fantasy Football: Week 12

Week 11 went swell, so long as you didn’t lose on a knee like Kelly’s Krew. We hope you’ll spend Thanksgiving Day doing the important things in life…like watching football.

 

Waiver Wire

QB: Blake Bortles (38% owned @ARI)

Story continues below advertisement

The Jags will continue to catch fire as Bortles faces a subpar Cardinals defense.

RB: Damien Williams (37% owned @NE)

Williams is seeing plenty of touches and is making the best of them.

WR: Mike Wallace (33% owned vs HOU)

Mike Wallace is back in his early season scoring form, look for him to score again against Houston.

TE: Adam Shaheen (1% owned @PHI)

The Bears finally found a new Zach Miller as the rookie Shaheen looks to keep drawing more targets.

 

Breakouts

QB: Matt Ryan (vs TB)

Ryan looks to get back on track this week with a favorable matchup.

QB: Kirk Cousins (vs NYG)

Cousins has been solid in recent weeks and will breakout on Thanksgiving.

RB: Samaje Perine (vs NYG)

Perine has been polarizing when he’s played, and he’s only getting better.

RB: Alfred Morris (vs LAC)

Morris was effective last week and will hit pay dirt on Turkey Day.

WR: JuJu Smith-Schuster (vs GB)

Smith-Schuster struggled last week, but will turn things around against a poor Packers defense.

WR: Devin Funchess (@NYJ)

Funchess and the Panthers offense was dynamic against Miami, and he’ll be targeted heavily again.
TE: Tyler Kroft (vs CLE)

Kroft has solidified himself as Andy Dalton’s favorite scoring target. Against the Browns, scoring should not be an issue.

 

Busts

QB: Dak Prescott (vs LAC)

Dak has struggled, and things are only getting worse. The Chargers secondary wont show any mercy to Dak.

RB: Jordan Howard (@PHI)

Philly’s D has proven to be the real deal, even though Howard is coming off a great week, he will struggle mightily against the Eagles.

WR: Larry Fitzgerald (vs JAX)

Even though Larry Fitzgerald is Mr. Consistent, no one has a good day against Jalen Ramsey. and A.J. Boyue.

TE: Hunter Henry (@DAL)

Henry won’t be doing much with Rivers looking constantly at his receivers.

 

Have a great Thanksgiving!
