  • Jets Defense An Excellent Week 12 Option

    The New York Jets defense is an excellent fantasy option in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. With starting quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) shaping up as a game-time decision for Week 12, Trevor Siemian could be forced to start, making the Jets defense even more appealing. Regardless of who starts though, the Jets defense has been outstanding this season, recording 32 sacks and 11 interceptions all while ranking fourth in the league in pressure rate. Meanwhile, the Bears have allowed the most sacks in the league. The Jets have seven top-12 fantasy weeks in a row on defense, and should make it eight straight after Sunday's game.

  • Greg Zuerlein A Risky Option In Week 12

    New York Jets kicker Greg Zuerlein is a risky option in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. Zuerlein has been good this year, but with the struggles of the Jets offense, he just hasn't had as many kicking opportunities to make him a consistent scoring kicker. He's had five top-13 kicking weeks, but also four outside of the top-20. With a new quarterback under center, Mike White, the Jets offense is a little tough to predict this week, making Zuerlein not a great fantasy choice.

  • Tyler Conklin Hard To Trust In Week 12

    New York Jets tight end Tyler Conklin is hard to trust in fantasy lineups in Week 12. Conklin has only seen two red zone targets since Week 2, and while other tight ends may not see quite as many total targets as Conklin, they are almost all more likely to see more red zone targets, and touchdown chasing is very much a thing with fantasy tight ends this season. The Jets opponent for Week 12, the Chicago Bears, have also been excellent at defending opposing tight ends this season, leaving Conklin as a low-end TE2 with a low floor and not much of a ceiling.

  • Elijah Moore Could Improve In Week 12

    New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore could have his best week in a while in a Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. Moore hasn't gained more than 17 yards since Week 4 and hasn't been better than the overall WR45 yet this season. But with a new signal caller, Mike White, taking over under center, the Jets offense should get more pass-based and Moore should benefit from that. He's not a fantasy starting option until he proves that he can do something, but he's someone to keep an eye on in case he finds what he had at the end of last season.

  • Packers Defense Not A Recommended Fantasy Option In Week 12

    The Green Bay Packers defense will go on the road to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The Packers have given up 27 or more points in five of the past seven games and have averaged just 1.6 sacks and 1.1 turnovers per game during that time. Ravaged by injuries at all levels, Green Bay's defense has struggled to stop opposing offenses from scoring. The matchup with Philadelphia is not great, as the Eagles have scored the sixth-most points and committed the second-fewest turnovers. With such a stiff matchup and no team on a bye this week, Green Bay's defense is far off of the streaming radar. Better options are sitting on the waiver wire in Week 12, so leave the Packers' defense out of your starting lineups this week if possible.

  • Garrett Wilson Has Nice Upside In Week 12

    New York Jets rookie wide receiver Garrett Wilson has solid upside and a good floor in a Week 12 matchup against the Chicago Bears. Wilson had a rough Week 11 game, but so did everyone on the Jets offense, as they only gained 103 yards as a team. In Week 12, Mike White will start at quarterback, and Wilson should see plenty of targets, as he's had a 24% target share since Week 8. He's a WR2 with upside this week.

  • James Robinson Set For A Better Game In Week 12

    New York Jets running back James Robinson is set to have a better game in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. Robinson ended up with just 10 total yards in Week 11, but the entire Jets offense only gained 103 yards in that game. Now with Mike White starting under center and the Bears offense struggling to stop any running plays, Robinson and Michael Carter could both put up RB3 numbers and are both at least solid FLEX plays.

  • Houston Texans Defense Has Low Upside In Week 12

    The Houston Texans defense should be low on the fantasy radar heading into Week 12 against the Dolphins. Miami ranks sixth in the NFL in scoring offense this season and while pass defense has been a positive for the Texans this year, the team has also had the advantage of some good matchups to help that number, like a Week 8 contest against the Titans where Tennessee attempted just 10 passes. Against an offense as good as this Dolphins offense, the Texans shouldn't be a team you look at for fantasy.

  • Mason Crosby Not A Viable Fantasy Option

    Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby will face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The 38-year-old has attempted six field goals over the past month but has missed two of them and is averaging two extra-point conversions per game. It gives the veteran a low-scoring floor with little upside to finish inside the top 12 unless he is able to hit on multiple field goal attempts. With Philadelphia giving up the fourth-fewest points in the league and the fifth-fewest field goal conversions, Crosby finds himself on the outside looking in of the list of streaming options in Week 12. There are better options to turn to this Week with no teams bye, so leave Crosby on the waiver wire.

  • Michael Carter Should Bounce Back In Week 12

    New York Jets running back Michael Carter should bounce back from a rough Week 11 performance in a Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears. Carter ended up with just two fantasy points last week, but he was playing on a Zach Wilson-led offense that totaled 103 yards and just three points. With Mike White getting the start under center against a Bears defense that struggles to stop the running game, Carter could easily put up solid RB2 numbers on Sunday.

  • Ka'imi Fairbairn Remains Low Upside Fantasy Option

    Houston Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn is in the midst of the most accurate season of his career, as he's made 90% of his field goals and 100% of his extra points this year. But he ranks just 15th in fantasy scoring at the kicker position this season because of a lack of opportunities due to Houston's offensive struggles. The team made a change at QB ahead of Sunday's game against Miami, but that shouldn't have much of a change on how many chances Fairbairn gets to kick the ball.

  • Nico Collins Has Deep League Upside In Week 12

    Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins has seemingly taken over the No. 1 wide receiver role from Brandin Cooks over the last couple of weeks. On Sunday against the Dolphins, we'll see if that continues even after the Texans make a change at quarterback, as Kyle Allen is starting over Davis Mills. The Dolphins rank just 22nd in passing yards allowed per game, so there might be a little upside here for Houston if Allen can go out and improve on the level of play we'd seen from Mills. Consider Collins an intriguing dart throw in deep leagues.

  • Robert Tonyan Off The Streaming Radar In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers tight end Robert Tonyan will face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The 28-year-old has been held to 35 yards or fewer since Week 6 and has not scored since Week 4. The involvement in the passing game has not been there for Tonyan, as he has inconsistently been targeted and is one of the last reads for quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the red zone. It has led to Tonyan ranking as the TE25 overall over the past five weeks. Philadelphia is not a good matchup this week, as the Eagles allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to the tight end position, so the potential to score is low. With an inconsistent target share as of late, Tonyan should be off the fantasy radar in Week 12.

  • Brandin Cooks Hoping To Get Boost From QB Change

    Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks has seen his usage trend down this season. After back-to-back weeks with double-digit targets to start the season, Cooks hasn't had more than seven in a game yet, and he's had four catches or fewer in five consecutive games. But there's a little hope this week, as the team has benched quarterback Davis Mills for Kyle Allen. Houston ranks just 26th in the NFL in passing yards per game, so the move to Allen has a decent shot at improving things for the Texans, which could trickle down to Cooks. Consider him a risky WR4 play.

    Nov 25 · Source via Texans Brandin Cooks
  • Dameon Pierce Looks To Bounce Back

    Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce is coming off the worst game of his NFL career, as he was held to just eight rushing yards in a Week 11 loss to the Commanders. But considering Pierce had rushed for 80 or more yards in six of the past seven games before last week's disappointment, fantasy managers should still be confident in Pierce as an RB2 play. Even though he had a season-low in carries last week, he played 77% of the team's snaps, his fourth-highest snap rate of the season. He'll be on the field plenty on Sunday and he'll get opportunities against a Dolphins defense that ranks 16th in rushing yards allowed.

    Nov 25 · Source via Texans Dameon Pierce
  • Allen Lazard Has FLEX Appeal In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Allen Lazard will face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The 26-year-old was targeted a season-high 11 times last week but was visibly not on the same page as quarterback Aaron Rodgers, catching just five of them for 57 yards. Coming into last week, Lazard was the clear top target for Rodgers, but rookie Christian Watson has started to emerge as a favorite of the reigning MVP, catching five touchdown passes over the past two weeks. Watson's presence seems to be cutting down the fantasy upside of Lazard, but he is still a viable FLEX option due to the high amount of targets he receives. Philadelphia allows the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position and is tied for the third-fewest touchdowns given up. However, Lazard had caught either six passes or a touchdown in every game before Week 10. His involvement in the offense makes him a FLEX option in Week 12, even against a stiff Eagles defense.

    Nov 25 · Source via Packers Allen Lazard
  • Christian Watson A FLEX Option In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson will go on the road to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The rookie has been on a tear the past two weeks, scoring five touchdowns and tallying 155 yards. Expecting a multi-touchdown performance every week is foolish, but the fact remains that Watson is quickly becoming one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' favorite targets when looking to score. The 23-year-old has averaged seven targets over the past two weeks and should remain heavily involved against the Eagles' defense. Philadelphia has allowed the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position, but Watson still sits squarely on the FLEX radar this week due to his ability to find the end zone. Consider the rookie a solid FLEX option in Week 12.

    Nov 25 · Source via Packers Christian Watson
  • AJ Dillon Better Left On The Bench In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers running back AJ Dillon will face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The 24-year-old had recorded 10 or more carries from Weeks 8-10, but was given just six carries last week and tallied just 23 yards. Dillon has not been a viable fantasy option for the majority of the season, surrendering more work to teammate Aaron Jones than initially thought during the preseason. With the Packers offense struggling to get into scoring range, the third-year back has had few opportunities to score, capping his fantasy upside. Philadelphia's defense is susceptible to the run, but Dillon is not getting enough work to be considered a FLEX option unless he proves otherwise. He can be started in desperation in 14-16 team leagues, but he is better left on the bench in Week 12.

    Nov 25 · Source via Packers AJ Dillon
  • Aaron Jones On The RB1 Borderline Against Philadelphia

    Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (shin/glute) will face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Jones does not carry an injury designation heading into the contest and is good to go for Week 12. The 27-year-old was held to 60 total yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11 and went from 24 carries in Week 9 to 12 last week. Jones should be heavily involved this week against Philadelphia, who has struggled to stop the run over the past month. The additions of Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh helped last week against Jonathan Taylor, but he still finished as the RB12 in Half-PPR formats with 94 total yards and a score. With the heavy workload and involvement in the passing game, the sixth-year back should be considered a fringe RB1 in Week 12.

    Nov 25 · Source via Packers Aaron Jones
  • Aaron Rodgers A Low-End Streaming Option In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will go on the road to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The reigning MVP has been a more viable fantasy option the past two weeks compared to the first nine weeks of the season, but he still has yet to finish inside the top 10 at the position. Rodgers receiving corps is only missing rookie Romeo Doubs, but he faces an Eagles defense that has allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to the quarterback position this season. The Eagles are more susceptible to the run, meaning Green Bay will likely attack them with the running back tandem of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon at a high rate. The 38-year-old quarterback has a chance to finish as a fringe QB1 if he can throw multiple touchdowns, but he lacks the upside against a stiff Philadelphia defense to finish inside the top 10. Rodgers should be considered a low-end streaming option in Week 12, but you can likely find a better option on the waiver wire.

  • Dee Eskridge To Go On IR With Broken Hand

    Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Dee Eskridge (hand) is expected to land on the injured reserve after suffering a broken right hand, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Eskridge had suited up for every game so far this season but sustained the injury during a kickoff return in a Week 10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Carroll expressed optimism that the second-year wideout will be able to return later this season. Eskridge, who has mainly been utilized on special teams, has not been impactful for fantasy in 2022, but teammates Penny Hart and Dareke Young could see some additional snaps in his absence.

  • Eagles Defense A Top 12 Option Against Green Bay

    The Philadelphia Eagles defense will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. Philadelphia has kept opposing offenses to 17 or fewer points scored in all but two games this season and averages three sacks and 1.9 turnovers per game. The Packers' offense has struggled to score this season, ranking 24th in total points scored, and is tied for the fifth-most turnovers. Green Bay has been banged up at the receiver position, but the only one they are slated to miss on Sunday is rookie Romeo Doubs (ankle). Green Bay is fighting for their playoff lives this week, so they will put up a fight, but overall the Eagles' defense is slated to have a solid fantasy performance in Week 12. They should be considered a top-12 fantasy option.

  • Jake Elliott A Boom Or Bust Streaming Option In Week 12

    Philadelphia Eagles kicker Jake Elliott will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. The 27-year-old has made just one field goal over the course of the past four games but has averaged 3.3 extra-point conversions. It gives Elliott a stable fantasy scoring floor but little upside. When Philadelphia gets into scoring range, they normally score a touchdown. Green Bay ranks middle of the pack against fantasy kickers, but unless the Eagles allow Elliott to attempt a field goal, he will likely end the night with a handful of fantasy points. The sixth-year kicker can be considered a boom or bust streaming option in Week 12, but there are likely better options to turn to on the waiver wire with no teams on bye this week.

  • Jack Stoll Off The Fantasy Radar

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Jack Stoll will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. The 24-year-old has taken over for Dallas Goedert (shoulder), who was placed on Injured Reserve. However, he has not been the fantasy force that Goedert was as the Eagles' top tight end. Stoll has caught just one pass in each of the past three games and has failed to top 13 yards. Grant Calcaterra has rotated into the TE1 role, putting both players off the fantasy radar. The targets that once went to Goedert have been spread to wide receivers, DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins. Unless Stoll can carve out a larger role in the offense, he can safely be left on the waiver wire and should not be considered a viable fantasy option in Week 12 against Green Bay.

  • Tyler Boyd Looking To Rebound Against Tennessee

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd had a horrendous showing against the Steelers in Week 11. He finished with only two catches for 42 yards, leaving many fantasy managers disappointed. On a positive note, the wideout was targeted seven times in that one, so it was evident Joe Burrow was looking to get him involved. That said, Ja'Marr Chase (hip) could return versus the Titans after missing over a month. However, even if Chase is active, he may be limited. As a result, Boyd remains in the flex conversation for the Week 12 meeting with Tennessee. But if Chase doesn't suit up, Boyd's ceiling will rise, especially since Joe Mixon (concussion) has already been ruled out.

    Nov 25 · Source via Bengals Tyler Boyd
  • DeVonta Smith A Borderline WR2 In Week 12

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. The 24-year-old has finished just outside the top 24 in Half-PPR formats the past two weeks, tallying 17 targets, 117 yards, and a score. The absence of tight end Dallas Goedert (shoulder) has led to an increased target share for Smith, and he should be heavily involved again on Sunday night, with teammate A.J. Brown (illness) potentially playing at less than 100%. The Packers' defense allows the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position, but star corner Jaire Alexander will likely cover Brown for the majority of the contest. With the potential to see 10-plus targets, the second-year receiver should be viewed as a borderline WR2 in Week 12.

  • Tee Higgins Looks To Build Off Solid Week 11 Showing

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins exploded during the Week 11 win over the AFC North rival Steelers, finishing with a game-high 148 yards off nine catches. Although the wideout didn't find the end zone, fantasy managers were thrilled with the performance, primarily since he hadn't surpassed the 100-yard receiving mark since Week 4. With the Titans on tap, Higgins will look to remain productive. While Ja'Marr Chase(hip) could be back, Joe Mixon (concussion) won't be on the field, so extra targets should be up for grabs. Either way, Higgins is one of the most talented fantasy options going, making him a must-start in any format imaginable in Week 12.

    Nov 25 · Source via Bengals Tee Higgins
  • A.J. Brown Looks To Bounce Back Against Green Bay

    Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown (illness) will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. He does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game and is slated to start. The Eagles' leading receiver has struggled the past two weeks, working through a slight ankle injury in Week 10 that he suffered on his only catch of the game. Brown caught five passes for 60 yards last week but finished outside the top 45 in Half-PPR leagues. During the Eagles' press conference, Brown was still visibly ill but has another day to recover and be as close to 100% as possible before Sunday. The Packers' defense allows the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position, and star corner Jaire Alexander could cover the 25-year-old often. However, Brown should still be considered a fringe WR1 due to his ability to find the end zone.

  • Samaje Perine Has Massive Upside In Week 12

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine had four catches for 52 yards and three touchdowns in Week 11 versus the Steelers. While he had trouble making noise on the run, his receiving prowess was still beneficial for the small number of fantasy managers who had him in the lineup. With Joe Mixon (concussion) out for Sunday's meeting against the Titans, Perine will handle most of the duties out of the backfield. That said, congratulations to those who were fortunate enough to grab the 27-year-old off the waiver wire ahead of Week 12, especially since he has upside in every fantasy format.

    Nov 25 · Source via Bengals Samaje Perine
  • Joe Burrow Aiming To Keep Cincy In Wild-Card Hunt

    Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow aims to keep his team in the playoff hunt in Week 12. Despite throwing two picks in Cincy's previous matchup against the Steelers, the signal-caller still amassed 355 yards and four touchdowns. With a win in the books, Burrow will look to keep things moving in the right direction versus the Titans. The former LSU Tiger has faced Tennessee twice in his short career, accumulating 597 yards and two touchdowns while completing 73% of his throws. Although Burrow won't have Joe Mixon (concussion) and possibly Ja'Marr Chase (hip), he still has enough weapons to remain productive for fantasy managers. Considering the Bengals' offensive line has played better recently only adds to Burrow's promising outlook for Sunday's game.

  • Greg Dulcich A Low-End TE1 Against Panthers

    Denver Broncos rookie tight end Greg Dulcich has had two straight games of very little production for his fantasy managers, totaling just five receptions on nine targets for 41 receiving yards and no touchdowns. Last week against the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, he had four catches on five targets for 30 yards. The good news is he was tied for second on the team with his five targets, so quarterback Russell Wilson continues to look his way. The bad news is the Broncos offense isn't good at all, keeping the 22-year-old's upside on the low end of the spectrum as a low-end TE1 for fantasy managers in a Week 12 matchup against the Carolina Panthers on the road. The Panthers defense is around the middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed per game to the tight end position.

    Nov 25 · Source via Broncos Greg Dulcich
  • Kendall Hinton To Have Elevated Role Against Carolina

    For the second straight week, Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton should serve as the team's No. 2 wideout with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) ruled out in Week 12 on the road against the Carolina Panthers. In last week's overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, Hinton played 88 percent of the offensive snaps and caught all three of his targets for 57 yards, his second-highest receiving total of the season. In the last two games, the 25-year-old has seven catches on eight targets for 119 yards. The slot weapon won't have a ton of upside in Denver's low-scoring offense, though, and he's not much of an option in the red zone. At best, Hinton will be a low-floor, low-ceiling WR4/flex in very deep fantasy leagues this weekend.

    Nov 25 · Source via Broncos Kendall Hinton
  • Courtland Sutton Has Another Big Opportunity In Week 12

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Courtland Sutton caught five of his seven targets for 80 yards in the Week 11 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders with Jerry Jeudy (ankle) inactive due to injury. Jeudy and KJ Hamler (hamstring) have been ruled out again in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, so Sutton should safely lead all of Denver's pass-catchers in targets on Sunday. The 27-year-old had a couple of big plays down the field last weekend, and fantasy managers will be hoping he and quarterback Russell Wilson can connect on some more against the Panthers. Sutton's floor is scary in the Broncos' lackluster offense this year, but the guaranteed target load will put him on the WR2/3 borderline this weekend.

    Nov 25 · Source via Broncos Courtland Sutton
  • Marlon Mack Can't Be Trusted In Broncos Debut

    Denver Broncos running back Marlon Mack will make his debut with the team in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, but he cannot be trusted as an option for starting fantasy lineups behind lead back Latavius Murray. Mack is getting an opportunity with Chase Edmonds (ankle) on Injured Reserve and after the Broncos waived Melvin Gordon III this week. While he should see some touches behind Murray this weekend in Carolina, the impending return of Mike Boone (ankle) could push Mack to third on the RB depth chart in one of the worst offenses in the NFL in 2022. The 26-year-old will have an opportunity to impress Denver's coaching staff in Week 12, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect much at all. Mack didn't play a single offensive snap in two games with the San Francisco 49ers earlier this year.

  • Latavius Murray To Operate As Lead Back In Week 12

    Denver Broncos running back Latavius Murray (wrist) was removed from the Week 12 injury report on Friday and will play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, a defense that is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points to RBs per game in half-point PPR settings this year. The Broncos waived Melvin Gordon III and Chase Edmonds (ankle) is on Injured Reserve, so Murray should benefit as the unquestioned lead back for the Broncos this weekend. In his five games with Denver, Murray has 63 carries for 209 yards (3.3 yards per carry) and three touchdowns, adding 11 catches for 56 yards. The 32-year-old is slightly more attractive as an RB3/flex in fantasy lineups, but his lack of efficiency in one of the league's worst offenses shouldn't inspire much confidence, even in a good matchup.

  • Russell Wilson A Low-End QB2 Against Panthers

    Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson has had an extremely disappointing season in his first year in Denver. He enters a Week 12 road matchup against the Carolina Panthers as the QB22 in overall fantasy points and he's thrown more than one touchdown in just one game in 2022 in Week 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders. In the rematch against Vegas last weekend, Wilson completed a season-high 77.42 percent of his 31 attempts, but he went for just 247 yards and no touchdowns. There's no reason to think he'll suddenly go off this Sunday against a middle-of-the-pack Panthers pass defense, especially since Wilson will be without receiver Jerry Jeudy (ankle) for the second straight game. Wilson has proven he's a low-end QB2 this year in fantasy without much upside at all.

  • Miles Sanders Looks To Snap Cold Streak

    Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders will face the Green Bay Packers Sunday night. The 25-year-old has had a couple of down weeks for fantasy purposes, tallying 101 yards on 25 carries and catching just one pass for one yard. Last week's matchup against the Colts was a good one on paper, but quarterback Jalen Hurts ran the ball 16 times, leaving little room for Sanders to succeed. This week's matchup against Green Bay is perfect for the fourth-year back to bounce back, as the Packers have given up the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the running back position. Sanders has still dominated the carries compared to teammates Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell, he just needs to find his way back into the end zone to make fantasy managers happy. He has a good shot at scoring this week and should be considered a solid RB2 in Week 12.

  • Trevor Penning Expected To Come Off IR This Weekend

    New Orleans Saints rookie first-round offensive tackle Trevor Penning (toe) is expected to be activated from Injured Reserve this weekend ahead of the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to sources. The 19th overall pick in this year's draft underwent toe surgery and has yet to make his NFL debut. It should come this Sunday against a stout Niners defensive line, which is good news for the Saints offense. Before his injury, the 6-foot-7 tackle was expected to play a significant role on the O-line right away, so he should play meaningful offensive snaps the rest of the way for the Saints.

  • Chase Young Questionable To Debut In Week 12

    Washington Commanders pass-rusher Chase Young (knee) is listed as questionable for the Week 12 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday after an impressive few days of practice. Young is trending in the right direction to make his season debut after tearing his ACL last year. The Commanders also placed linebacker Cole Holcomb (foot) on Injured Reserve on Friday. Head coach Ron Rivera said that the 23-year-old Young will be on a snap count when he returns to the field for the team, so he won't be a realistic starting option in IDP fantasy formats. Rivera said Young is expected to be limited to 12 to 16 defensive snaps if he's active for the first time this Sunday against Atlanta.

  • Russell Gage Won't Play Against Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said that wide receiver Russell Gage (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Gage hasn't played since Week 7 and wasn't able to get healthy during the team's Week 11 bye, so he'll miss yet another game this weekend. As long as the rest of Tampa's receiving corps remains healthy, Gage has no business being rostered in standard-sized fantasy leagues. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones will continue to operate as the team's top three wideouts against Cleveland. Gage has recorded 29 receptions on 40 targets for 231 yards and one touchdown in seven games with Tampa so far in 2022.

  • Rams Non-Committal On Starting QB For Week 12

    Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said "you'll see on Sunday" whether rookie quarterback Bryce Perkins starts under center in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. McVay confirmed that Perkins received first-team repetitions in practice this week with John Wolford (neck) being limited. The Rams already ruled out Matthew Stafford (concussion, neck). It will most likely be the 25-year-old Perkins getting the starting nod for the Rams, which will be his first career NFL start. LA's offense is in shambles right now without Stafford and Cooper Kupp (ankle), and they could also be without tight end Tyler Higbee and receiver Allen Robinson II due to injuries this Sunday. Perkins will be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he's starting, while the Chiefs defensive unit is a must-start this weekend.

  • Romeo Doubs Ruled Out In Week 12

    Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs (ankle) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for the Week 12 contest on Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. Doubs hasn't practiced or played since he suffered a right high-ankle sprain on Nov. 6. The 22-year-old is slowly improving, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return in Week 13 against the division-rival Chicago Bears. In Doubs' absence in recent weeks, fellow rookie Christian Watson has stepped up in a big way to the tune of four touchdown receptions in the last two games. Watson, Allen Lazard and veteran slot man Randall Cobb should continue to work as quarterback Aaron Rodgers' top three pass-catchers in a tough matchup in Week 12 against the Eagles defense.

  • Jalen Hurts A Must-Start Despite Tough Matchup

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. The third-year quarterback has failed to throw for 200 or more yards over the past two weeks but has run the ball 22 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns. After leaning more on his arm for a four-game stretch, Hurts has recently relied on his rushing ability to keep the Eagles' offense on the field. He is most valuable for fantasy purposes when he runs often and should continue to do so this week against a Packers defense that has given up the eighth-fewest passing yards through 11 weeks. Hurts is matchup-proof in fantasy and should continue to produce top-tier production even in a tough matchup on paper. Consider the 24-year-old a strong QB1 play in Week 12.

  • Keenan Allen, Gerald Everett Good To Go

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) and tight end Gerald Everett (groin) were removed from Friday's final injury report and will play in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Allen had a successful return to action in the Week 11 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, catching five of his eight targets for 94 yards, although he did lose a fumble. With Mike Williams (ankle) out this weekend, Allen should see heavy volume and will be in play as a WR2 for fantasy managers. Everett will return after missing the last game and will face a Cardinals defense that was just torched by San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. Everett will be in play as a borderline TE1/2 streamer in his return.

  • Isaiah Likely Questionable To Face The Jaguars

    Baltimore Ravens rookie tight end Isaiah Likely (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12 on Sunday. Likely popped up on Friday's injury report while putting in a limited practice. The 22-year-old apparently was injured in practice on Friday, putting his availability in question this weekend. He was an attractive streaming option for fantasy managers at the thin tight end position when Mark Andrews was dealing with several injuries, but now that Andrews is back and healthy, Likely has very limited fantasy appeal. If the rookie isn't cleared to play against Jacksonville, Josh Oliver and Nick Boyle could see added opportunities as Andrews' backup.

  • Devin Duvernay, Demarcus Robinson Questionable

    Baltimore Ravens wide receivers Devin Duvernay (hamstring) and Demarcus Robinson (hip) are both listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Duvernay popped up on Friday's injury report after putting in a limited practice. Robinson was a DNP on Thursday but practiced in full Friday. Duvernay has seen just two targets since taking over as Baltimore's No. 1 wideout when Rashod Bateman (foot) was lost for the year, so it's an understatement to say he can't be trusted in starting fantasy lineups, especially with his injury to consider. Robinson should be able to play, but he'll be a boom/bust WR4/flex if he's active. The 28-year-old had nine catches for 128 yards last week, so if Duvernay is inactive, Robinson will become more attractive as a deep-league flex play.

  • Rondale Moore Officially Out In Week 12

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rondale Moore (groin) was unable to practice all week and has officially been ruled out for Week 12 against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Moore injured his groin on the second offensive snap of Monday night's blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers and didn't return, and now he'll miss at least one game with the injury. Greg Dortch (thumb), who replaced Moore in the slot on Monday, will be a game-time decision on Sunday, but the Cardinals are expecting Marquise Brown (foot) to return from Injured Reserve to play against the Bolts. The 22-year-old Moore deserves to be held in most fantasy leagues, although the return of Brown will cause his fantasy ceiling to fall the rest of the way in 2022. Veteran A.J. Brown could still have an expanded role on Sunday if Brown is on a snap count, as expected.

  • Raheem Mostert Listed As Doubtful Against Texans

    Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially listed as doubtful to play in Week 12 against the Houston Texans. Head coach Mike McDaniel said it will be an uphill battle for Mostert to play on Sunday against the Texans, so it will be the Jeff Wilson Jr. show against Houston's last-ranked run defense this weekend. Fantasy managers that have Wilson rostered need to fire him up in a starting spot in all leagues. It's a disappointing development for Mostert's managers with the Dolphins coming off their bye week. The 30-year-old is now clearly behind Wilson in Miami's backfield and will be more of a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex when he returns to action. With Mostert most likely out Sunday, Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin will battle for change-of-pace work behind Wilson.

  • Deebo Samuel Questionable To Face The Saints

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. It's an injury that caused Samuel to sit out in Week 8, so it bears watching heading into Sunday's contest against New Orleans. The 26-year-old was limited in practice this week, so he should be on the right side of questionable, but fantasy managers will have to check back on Samuel before Sunday's inactives are released. Jauan Jennings, Ray-Ray McCloud II and rookie Danny Gray would be asked to step up behind Brandon Aiyuk and tight end George Kittle if Samuel doesn't get the green light. Samuel caught seven of nine targets for 57 yards and carried the ball three times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 win over the Arizona Cardinals. He'll be a strong WR2 for fantasy managers if he plays.

  • Josh Jacobs Questionable To Play In Week 12

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (calf) was added to the injury report on Friday after getting in a limited practice, and he's officially listed as questionable to play in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. It's never a good sign when players are late additions to the injury report, so Jacobs' status bears watching heading into Sunday's game. If the 24-year-old is limited or out this weekend, the Raiders would probably roll with some form of a committee backfield that includes Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah, Brittain Brown and rookie Zamir White. Through 11 weeks of the 2022 season, Jacobs is the RB5 in half-point PPR scoring, so he'll be a high-end, must-start RB1 if he's active.

  • Mike Williams Ruled Out Against Cardinals

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) has officially been ruled out for the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Williams returned in the Week 11 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs but suffered a setback with his high-ankle sprain and will miss another game this weekend. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to make it back in Week 13 to face the Las Vegas Raiders. With Big Mike out, Keenan Allen, Joshua Palmer and DeAndre Carter will be the Bolts' top three receivers for quarterback Justin Herbert. Williams has 38 catches on 60 targets for 510 yards and three touchdowns in eight games so far in 2022, but his ankle injury could slow him down the rest of the way.

  • Ryan Succop A Top-10 Fantasy Kicker Versus Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Ryan Succop has been one of the season's most reliable fantasy kickers. He has converted 22-of-25 field goal attempts while going a perfect 13-for-13 in extra-point tries. The 36-year-old will look to bounce back against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12 after tallying three points in the Week 10 win over the Seahawks. Sunday's game between the Bucs and Browns has an over/under of 43 points. Succop has scored double digits in three of the last five weeks and remains a strong streaming option against the Browns in Week 12.

  • Cade Otton Mainly A Streamer In Deep-League Formats

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie tight end Cade Otton has 26 catches for 281 yards and one touchdown over nine games in 2022. Teammate Cameron Brate (neck) returned in Week 10 after a three-game absence. Otton out-snapped the veteran Brate 46-34 in the Germany game win over the Seahawks. The 23-year-old had a vital role and caught all three of his targets for 35 yards. He will look to improve on the Week 10 totals against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Cleveland has been shredded by opposing tight ends this season and ranks 26th in DVOA versus the position. The return of Brate caps Otton's fantasy upside, but the rookie is worth taking a chance on in deep-league formats.

  • Chris Godwin A Solid Fantasy Option Against Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin caught his first touchdown of the season in the Week 10 win over the Seahawks. He logged six receptions on eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Germany game. The 26-year-old continued seeing heavy volume and had been targeted double digits in four of his last five games. He will look to build on the Week 10 performance against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Cleveland ranks 24th in DVOA against opposing WR2s. With the plus matchup and a good volume of targets, Godwin remains a solid fantasy option in Week 12.

  • Matt Prater A Solid Option In Week 12

    Arizona Cardinals kicker Matt Prater is a solid starting option in Week 12 as the Cardinals take on the Chargers at home. Prater has continued his perfect stretch this season, as he has made all nine field goals and 10 extra point attempts this season. The veteran has been as reliable as you can be, making him a weekly starter in fantasy lineups moving forward.

  • Mike Evans A Borderline WR1 Against The Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has posted modest results recently and will look to bounce back against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 4 and has had 10 catches for 94 yards over his last games. The 29-year-old is in a great spot against a Browns defense that ranks 22nd in DVOA versus opposing WR1s. Despite his recent modest production, Evans remains a must-start and is a borderline WR1 against the Browns in Week 13.

  • Cardinals Defense A Risky Option Versus Chargers

    The Arizona Cardinals D/ST is a risky option in Week 12, as Justin Herbert and the Chargers come to town. They were embarrassed in Week 11 against the 49ers, as Jimmy Garoppolo threw four touchdowns in a blowout win. Herbert will be without Mike Williams in this one, but an offense that includes Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler can cause a lot of problems for the struggling Cardinals' defense. They should be avoided in fantasy lineups this week.

  • Trey McBride A TE2 In Week 12

    Arizona Cardinals tight end Trey McBride will have TE2 value in Week 12, as the rookie will continue to have an increased role in Zach Ertz's absence. McBride caught all four of his targets for 14 yards in Week 11, but he shouldn't be relied on this week until we know what his role will be on a consistent basis. With Marquise Brown back, Kyler Murray figures to pepper his top two WRs with targets, but with Rondale Moore likely to miss some time, McBride could still find a role in this offense.

  • Rachaad White Will Have Expanded Role Against Cleveland

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White should see an expanded in Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, with teammate Leonard Fournette (hip) unlikely to play. He is set to be Tampa Bay's primary ball carrier and is coming off the best game of the season in Week 10. The 23-year-old logged a career-high 22 carries for 105 yards in the win over Seattle. White has a favorable matchup against the Browns. Cleveland ranks 27th in rush DVOA and has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs per game this season. Fantasy managers should plug and play White into their fantasy lineups in Week 12.

  • DeAndre Hopkins A WR1 Option In Week 12

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will look to keep rolling in Week 12 against the Chargers, as his QB1 Kyler Murray looks ready to return to action. The Chargers have done a good job of shutting down opposing WR1s over the past few games, but Hopkins' elite target numbers and talent make him a must-start option no matter the option. The veteran has averaged 11.6 targets since his return to action this season, but the return of Marquise Brown could somewhat diminish his target number moving forward. Still, With Zach Ertz and Rondale Moore both injured, Hopkins and Brown can both command double-digit targets on a weekly basis.

  • Younghoe Koo Hard To Trust In Week 12

    Atlanta Falcons kicker Younghoe Koo is a top-six kicker this year, averaging 8.1 fantasy points per game. However, the veteran kicker has been a boom-or-bust player all year. He has scored 12 or more fantasy points five times this season, averaging 13.6 fantasy points per game in those contests. Unfortunately, Koo has scored six or fewer fantasy points in the other six games this season, averaging only 3.5 fantasy points per game in those matchups. Last week he scored 12 fantasy points in the win over the Chicago Bears after making two field goals from beyond 40 yards. However, the veteran kicker had only seven fantasy points over the previous two weeks. Fantasy players willing to take the boom-or-bust risk with Koo should start the veteran in Week 12.

  • Falcons Defense A Decent Streaming Option

    The Atlanta Falcons defense has been wildly inconsistent this season. The unit has scored double-digit fantasy points in three games this year. However, they have scored two or fewer fantasy points in nearly half of their games this season. Furthermore, Atlanta's sack production has been hot and cold. Last week the Falcons had four sacks. Yet, they had only five sacks in their previous six games. Meanwhile, opposing defenses have played well against the Washington Commanders. In the five games Taylor Heinicke has started, opposing defenses have totaled nine sacks and five turnovers. Moreover, Heinicke has thrown an interception in every game until last week against the Houston Texans. The Falcons defense has been consistent this year, but the matchup this week makes them a decent streaming option.

  • MyCole Pruitt Not Worth Consideration

    Atlanta Falcons tight end MyCole Pruitt had one reception last week for 17 receiving yards in the 27-24 win over the Chicago Bears. With Kyle Pitts (knee) out for at least the next four weeks, Pruitt will join Parker Hesse, Anthony Firkser, and Feleipe Franks in trying to replace the young star tight end. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have held tight ends to only 5.9 half-point PPR fantasy points per game this season, the fewest in the NFL. They have given up only one receiving touchdown to tight ends over their past eight contests. Fantasy players should avoid starting any Atlanta tight end until we see how this unit will shake out with Pitts out.

  • James Conner Draws Great Matchup In Week 12

    Arizona Cardinals running back James Conner draws a great matchup in Week 12, as the Cardinals host the Chargers and their abysmal run defense. They have allowed a league-worst 5.5 yards per carry, making Conner a high-end RB2 in this matchup. Kyler Murray looks set to return, so the Cardinals' offense should get themselves in scoring position in this one. The bruising runner has scored three touchdowns in his past two games after not finding the end zone since Week 1 but has been inefficient in his these games with 35 carries for just 111 yards. If Conner is able to bump up his efficiency, which he should be able to do, he makes for an interesting upside play this week.

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Olamide Zaccheaus has played well for the team this year. However, his play hasn't turned into meaningful fantasy production. The veteran receiver is averaging only 5.5 half-point PPR fantasy points per game this season. He has seen four or fewer targets in every game this year. More importantly, Zaccheaus has scored under five fantasy points in five straight contests. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have surrendered 28.6 fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, slightly above the league average. Furthermore, they have given up 10 receiving touchdowns to the position this year, including two over the past three weeks. While Kyle Pitts (knee) won't play this week, fantasy players have no reason to start Zaccheaus.

The 45-year-old has thrown for 2,805 yards and a 12:2 TD:INT ratio over 11 games in 2022. Cleveland has been obliterated through the air and ranks 28th in pass DVOA. Tampa Bay could lean on the pass more against the Browns, as they are expected to be without running back Leonard Fournette (hip), who is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should start Brady with the plus matchup against Cleveland, and he remains a solid fantasy option in Week 12.

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Drake London has found the end zone in the past two games. The rookie receiver started the year strong, averaging 8.3 targets and 14.5 half-point PPR per game over the first three weeks. However, the former USC star scored under six fantasy points in six straight games, failing to find the end zone every week. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have surrendered 28.6 fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, slightly above the league average. Furthermore, they have given up 10 receiving touchdowns to the position this year, including two over the past three weeks. With Kyle Pitts (knee) out this week, London should see an uptick in targets.

However, he has averaged only 7.2 fantasy points per game since Patterson's return, scoring under seven fantasy points in back-to-back weeks. Furthermore, the former BYU star had only eight rushing attempts in back-to-back games after averaging 13.6 rushing attempts over the previous five contests. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have held running backs to only 17.1 fantasy points per game, the sixth-fewest in the NFL this season. They have given up only one rushing touchdown to running backs over the past six weeks. Allgeier belongs on the bench in Week 12.

    Atlanta Falcons running back Cordarrelle Patterson has become hard to trust over the past few weeks. Over the first three games this year, the veteran running back averaged 15.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game. Furthermore, he scored 21 or more fantasy points twice during that span. However, he suffered a knee injury and missed four weeks. Upon his return, Patterson had two rushing touchdowns in 17.8 fantasy points in his first game back. Unfortunately, the former first-round pick has scored 13.4 total fantasy points over the past two weeks. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have held running backs to only 17.1 fantasy points per game, the sixth-fewest in the NFL this season. They have given up only one rushing touchdown to running backs over the past six weeks. Fantasy players should avoid starting Patterson if possible.

Furthermore, he has averaged 17.1 fantasy points per game over the past seven weeks, scoring 17.7 or more in over 70% of those contests. More importantly, the former Oregon Duck has four total touchdowns over the past two weeks, scoring 17.5 or more fantasy points in both games. Meanwhile, the Washington Commanders have surrendered 16.9 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season, slightly above the league average. They have given up two or more passing touchdowns in 55% of the games this season, including two straight before last week. While Mariota won't have Kyle Pitts (knee) this week, the veteran remains a solid streaming option.

  • Kyle Allen Confirmed As Week 12 Starter

    Houston Texans head coach Lovie Smith confirmed on Friday that quarterback Kyle Allen will start under center in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Davis Mills experiment is over for the time being and Allen will get his first start since the 2020 season with the Washington Commanders. Not much should be expected of the 26-year-old in this Texans offense, but he will be a low-end QB2 option for desperate fantasy managers in superflex leagues this weekend. And on the bright side, the Dolphins defense has allowed the second-most fantasy points to signal-callers this year through 10 games played. The move from Mills to Allen has to be seen as at least a small upgrade for the likes of Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins.

  • Randy Bullock Questionable For Week 12

    Tennessee Titans kicker Randy Bullock (right calf) is questionable to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12. Bullock missed last week's game against the Green Bay Packers, setting up Josh Lambo to kick for Tennessee. However, Lambo has been released, so rookie kicker Caleb Shudak would make his NFL debut should Bullock be ruled out. Shudak was recently designated to return from the PUP list after suffering an injury in June, but reportedly challenged Bullock for the starting kicker job in minicamp. All that said, neither kicker should be started this week, as no teams are on a bye and the full complement of streamers are in play.

  • Chiefs Rule Out Kadarius Toney

    The Kansas City Chiefs ruled out wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring) for the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Toney aggravated a hamstring injury in the Week 11 win over the Los Angeles Chargers and was unable to practice at all this week. Given the 23-year-old's extensive injury history early in his NFL career, it's fair to wonder when he'll make it back for the Chiefs. The former first-rounder has plenty of upside, especially in this Chiefs offense, so he's still worth stashing in the majority of fantasy leagues. The Chiefs will be getting JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) back this weekend, so he and Marquez Valdes-Scantling should be KC's top two receivers against the Rams, with Justin Watson and rookie Skyy Moore battling for No. 3 duties with Mecole Hardman (abdomen) on Injured Reserve.

  • Ryan Tannehill Faces Tough Matchup In Week 12

    Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill proved he's capable of a solid fantasy performance against a solid defense last week in the win over the Green Bay Packers. Tannehill threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns at Lambeau Field as the Titans' passing game looked as strong as it's been all season. However, the Bengals' defense has allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks, so Tannehill isn't considered a high-end option. There are no byes this week, so finding an option with more upside than Tannehill should not be difficult in traditional single-quarterback leagues.

  • Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler Ruled Out For Week 12

    Denver Broncos wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring) have both been ruled out for Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett. Jeudy and Hamler missed practice all week and will miss yet another game. In their absences, Courtland Sutton and Kendall Hinton will continue to be quarterback Russell Wilson's top two receivers. Sutton caught five of his seven targets for 80 yards in the Week 11 loss to the division-rival Las Vegas Raiders, and he'll once again have WR2 upside in Week 12 as Wilson's go-to target. Hinton will merely be a deep-league flex option, but he has very little upside in Denver's low-scoring offense.

  • Lamar Jackson Not On The Final Injury Report

    Updating a previous report, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (hip) is off the final injury report for Week 12 and will play on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There was a bit of concern earlier this week about Jackson's status when he missed practice, but he has since returned to the field and is feeling much better. He will start under center and should be locked into all starting fantasy lineups as a high-end, dual-threat QB for fantasy managers. The 25-year-old has left a lot to be desired throughout the year in fantasy without many reliable options in the passing attack, but he usually makes up for it on the ground. The Jaguars defense has also allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to QBs in 2022.

  • Cardinals Optimistic About Marquise Brown's Return

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he feels good about wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) returning to play in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Cardinals will have to officially activate Brown from Injured Reserve, but that should come on Saturday. It's great news for fantasy managers, but the 25-year-old speedster is expected to be on a snap count in his first game action since Week 6, making him extremely risky as a fantasy starter this weekend. The Cardinals will be without Rondale Moore (groin) and could also be without Greg Dortch (thumb), so A.J. Green and Robbie Anderson could continue to have bigger roles in the passing game behind No. 1 DeAndre Hopkins.

  • Kyler Murray Ready To Return Against Chargers

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said that quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) looked sharp this week in practice and is ready to go for the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Murray returned to a full practice on Wednesday and has been trending toward returning from a two-game absence for the Cardinals. The 25-year-old will take back over for Colt McCoy to face the Chargers this weekend. Murray will be without Rondale Moore (groin) and could also be without Greg Dortch (thumb), but he's expected to get Marquise Brown (foot) back this weekend. The Chargers defense has been more vulnerable on the ground this year, but Murray will be at least a low-end QB1 for fantasy managers in his return to action in Week 12.

  • Greg Dortch A Game-Time Decision For Week 12

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Greg Dortch (thumb) didn't practice on Wednesday and Thursday and will be a game-time decision for the game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Dortch's fantasy outlook and range of outcomes are wide because Rondale Moore (groin) isn't expected to play, but Marquise Brown (foot) is trending toward returning. Quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) is also trending toward playing. Dortch will likely be the No. 3 target for the Cardinals if he's active, so he'll be an extremely risky boom-or-bust flex play for Week 12.

  • Lamar Jackson Should Play In Week 12

    There was a little bit of a cause for concern early in the week for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (hip) when he missed practice, but Jackson has practiced the last two days and head coach John Harbaugh has made it clear that Jackson should play in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. There's a chance Jackson is listed as questionable on Friday's final injury report, but fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned if he is. The 25-year-old has been feeling better and shouldn't have any restrictions in a nice matchup against the Jags this weekend. Jackson left a lot to be desired in last week's win over the Carolina Panthers, but he should remain locked into starting fantasy lineups as a high-end QB1 this Sunday.

  • Justin Fields Questionable To Face Jets

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) is officially questionable for the Week 12 matchup with the New York Jets. Head coach Matt Eberflus said the team is hoping to take the decision to play Fields up until game time on Sunday. Fields is the overall QB4 on the season after a sluggish start and has been arguably the most explosive breakout player in all of fantasy football. That said, fantasy managers will surely be hurting if he's ruled out. The New York Jets have been a top-10 unit against fantasy quarterbacks this season, but Fields is very much in the must-start category with his rushing upside. The good news is no quarterbacks are on a bye week so it shouldn't be too difficult to find a streamer, but losing Fields' ceiling will be disappointing. If he's out, Trevor Siemian will start for Chicago. He'd only be viable in superflex or two-QB leagues.

  • Logan Thomas Questionable To Face Falcons

    Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas (rib/illness) is officially questionable to face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. Thomas hasn't had a prolific season, but with Kyle Pitts, Darren Waller, Zach Ertz, and Dallas Goedert all on injured reserve, the tight end position is thin, so he's on the fantasy radar. The Falcons are just a neutral matchup for tight ends but are susceptible to the run and pass. That said, consider Thomas a low-end TE2 or TE3 if active. If he's out, John Bates should be the lead tight end, but it'll probably just mean more targets for Commanders' wide receivers.

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion protocol) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12. Smith-Schuster missed the game last week against the Los Angeles Chargers with a concussion but appears to be ready to go. The Rams have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers thus far, and since Kadarius Toney (hamstring) likely won't play and Mecole Hardman (abdomen) is on Injured Reserve, Smith-Schuster's upside is sky-high in his return. He and Travis Kelce should be Patrick Mahomes' clear No. 1 and No. 2 targets moving forward.

  • Allen Robinson, Tyler Higbee Questionable For Week 12

    Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Allen Robinson (ankle) and tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) are officially questionable to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12. It's also unclear if Matthew Stafford (concussion/neck) will play, so there are plenty of reasons to be concerned for the Rams' offense -- beyond just what has transpired this season thus far. If Stafford plays, Robinson and Higbee could have some PPR value, since the Rams will likely be playing from behind, but both are far from high-end fantasy assets at this point in the season. The ceilings and floors of both guys are significantly lower than expected, regardless of who is at quarterback for Sean McVay.

  • David Njoku's Snap Count Uncertain Versus Buccaneers

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle/knee) will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12, but it's unclear whether or not he'll be on a snap count like he was last week against the Buffalo Bills. Njoku played just 28 snaps to Harrison Bryant's 55 in that game and caught just two passes for 17 yards. With all that said, risk is baked into his Week 12 fantasy outlook. If he plays the full complement of snaps, his upside has proven to be high. Ultimately, the tight end position is extra scarce this season with a ton of key injuries, so the risk is probably worth it in Week 12.

  • Gus Edwards Trending Toward Playing Sunday

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (hamstring/knee) seems to be trending in the right direction for the team's Week 12 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach John Harbaugh said he "hopes" Edwards will play but expects left tackle, Ronnie Stanley (ankle), to be ruled out. If Edwards plays, he'll be an intriguing flex option in a top-12 matchup for running backs, but he has a low floor with no pass-catching upside and plenty of competition for touches with Kenyan Drake and Justice Hill. Ultimately, he's a touchdown-or-bust option in the context of the Ravens' offense.

  • Parris Campbell Remains High-Volume Option In Week 12

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell is finally healthy and enjoying a career season. Averaging four catches on over five targets per game, Campbell has settled in as a reliable target for veteran quarterback Matt Ryan. His last four games with Ryan starting at quarterback have seen him have target totals of 11, 12, nine, and six. He's almost even with Michael Pittman Jr. in terms of volume and playing time, and he's nearly become an every week starter in PPR leagues. This week's matchup against the Steelers is a plus for Campbell, making him a solid, high-floor start.

  • Leonard Fournette To Be Game-Day Decision

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette (hip) has practiced in a limited fashion this week leading up to the game against the Cleveland Browns. Fournette suffered the injury in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks in Germany before Tampa Bay went on a Week 11 bye. He will reportedly be a game-day decision. If he's active, he'll be in a timeshare with rookie Rachaad White, who posted his first 100-yard rushing game against Seattle. Both will be solid flex plays, but either is at risk of producing a dud in the shared backfield. If Fournette is out, White is virtually a must-start against the Cleveland defense that has allowed the second-most fantasy points to running backs through 11 weeks.

  • Matt Ryan Looks To Rebound In Week 12 Against Steelers

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan is coming off of a near-upset against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. Despite not throwing a touchdown, the Colts were able to stick around until the very end. Things will likely be easier for Ryan this week against the Steelers' low-end secondary. Allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, the Steelers have become a targeted matchup for fantasy managers looking to stream matchups. Expect Ryan to bounce back this week as an interesting streaming option. While he isn't a QB1, he may be an option in superflex formats.

  • Kylen Granson Emerging As A Primary Tight End For Colts

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Kylen Granson has seen consistent playing time in his second year with the Colts. He's played behind Mo Alie-Cox all season, but has recently been narrowing the gap in snaps. The increased snap counts has led to little production, however, as he has only had two games this season with over 50 yards receiving. Averaging 2.3 receptions per game, Granson is a low-volume option for the Colts. Even with a thin tight end position in fantasy football, Granson isn't a recommended play unless he begins to play above Alie-Cox consistently.

  • Ja'Marr Chase Officially Questionable Against Titans

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (hip) had a good week at practice and is officially listed as questionable to play in Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans. The 22-year-old is trending in the right direction to return for the first time since injuring his hip in Week 7, but fantasy managers must check back for the game-day inactives on Sunday morning before officially locking him into starting lineups this weekend. There's also a chance that the Bengals ease Chase back into the fold, so he'll be a bit more risky than usual if he's active. But if Chase is on the field, he's pretty much a must-start in fantasy after racking up 47 catches on 74 targets for 605 yards and six touchdowns in his seven games before the injury. His return would mean fewer looks for both Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

  • Alec Pierce A Volatile Option In Week 12

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce has consistently operated as the third wideout for the Colts, working behind both Michael Pittman Jr. and Parris Campbell. However, he did see his second-highest target total last week against the Philadelphia Eagles with eight. With the Colts passing attack seemingly always operating at a high-volume level, Pierce should maintain his floor of a few targets a game. With an easier matchup against the Steelers, he does have slightly higher upside this week. Consider Pierce a risk/reward WR4 in Week 12.

  • Joe Mixon Ruled Out For Week 12

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon (concussion) has been officially ruled out for Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday due to his concussion that he suffered in last week's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Mixon was unable to clear the league's protocol and didn't practice all week, paving the way for Samaje Perine to lead Cincy's backfield this weekend against the Titans. Perine should've been a popular waiver-wire pickup this week because of Mixon's injury, especially after he scored three receiving touchdowns and saw 15 touches in Week 11. Rookie Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams will look to pick up the slack behind Perine this Sunday. With added touches and playing time, Perine will be in play as an RB2 in Week 12 with Mixon out.

  • Bryan Edwards Placed On Waivers

    Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Bryan Edwards was placed on waivers on Thursday, according to a source. He'll be a potential late-season addition for a wide receiver-needy team. Edwards only played in seven games (one start) for a Falcons team thin on receiving depth, and he caught just three of five targets for 15 yards in his seven games. In his three seasons in the NFL (two with the Las Vegas Raiders), the 24-year-old wideout has just 48 receptions on 79 targets for 779 yards and four touchdowns. His best season came in 2021 with the Raiders, when he caught 34 of 59 targets for 571 yards and three touchdowns. It's unlikely that Edwards will become fantasy relevant as receiver depth for the rest of the 2022 campaign if he is picked up by another club.

  • Commanders Place LB Cole Holcomb On IR

    Cole Holcomb‘s injury absence will extend into January. The Commanders placed the starting linebacker on IR on Friday, mandating he miss four more games. The fourth-year defender has been out with a foot injury since Week 7. Ron Rivera said earlier this week Holcomb was scheduled to visit a foot specialist. It is uncertain if […]

  • Derek Stingley Won't Play Against Dolphins

    Houston Texans rookie first-round cornerback Derek Stingley (hamstring) will miss his second straight game in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins due to a strained hamstring. Stingley has been sidelined at practice since last week and will not play this Sunday, leaving Houston's secondary vulnerable against perhaps the best receiving duo in the NFL in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Stingley hasn't allowed a touchdown pass all season. He was replaced at outside cornerback by Desmond King against the Washington Commanders last week, starting opposite Steven Nelson with Tavierre Thomas filling in as the primary nickel. Stingley has 43 tackles, one interception and one sack in nine starts for the Texans in his first year in the NFL.

  • Von Miller Out At Least A Week

    Buffalo Bills star pass-rusher Von Miller (knee) did not suffer a torn ACL in the Thanksgiving win over the Detroit Lions on Thursday, but there is concern about his lateral meniscus. He will be out at least a week or 10 days while he figures it out. Miller will undergo surgery, but the question is whether he'll have it now or after the season. Once the injury calms down in a week or two, doctors and the Bills will decide the next step. Fantasy managers that have Miller rostered in IDP leagues should hold tight for now, but there's still a chance Miller won't play again in 2022. Buffalo's defense/special teams unit will still be attractive in fantasy, but they'll lose a lot of upside without their best pass-rusher for the foreseeable future. They'll face the New England Patriots next Thursday night.

  • Darrell Henderson Jr. Won't Play In Week 12

    Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said that it's too early for running back Darrell Henderson Jr. to play in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday after the team just claimed him off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams a couple of days ago. But Pederson did say that the team "loves his physicality, he's a downhill guy." Travis Etienne Jr. will remain Jacksonville's primary running back, but Henderson will provide a between-the-tackles presence behind him once he's up to speed with his new offensive playbook. The 25-year-old led the Rams with 70 carries for 283 yards and three touchdowns while adding 17 catches for 102 yards on 22 targets before he was waived. For now, Henderson will merely be a handcuff option for those that have Etienne rostered.

  • Jakobi Meyers' Shoulder Injury Isn't Serious

    New England Patriots wide receiver Jakobi Meyers (shoulder) said his right shoulder was "sore" after the Thursday night loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving, but he also said "I'll be alright." He was injured on the first offensive play of the game, but he returned in the second half after undergoing X-rays in the locker room. When Meyers returned, he was on a limited snap count and finished the contest with three catches for 63 yards. It appeared that he aggravated his shoulder in the second half, but Meyers is confident he'll be fine moving forward. Fantasy managers should be happy that Meyers even returned to this contest to give them any production at all, but it sounds as though he should be fine to play next Thursday against the Buffalo Bills, barring any setbacks.
