Russell Wilson is back from bye this week and everyone (besides people playing against him) should be extremely excited. Wilson has been magnificent this year although prior to his bye week he put up a less than 15 point outing against the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers are the second worst opponent for QBs based on fantasy points allowed per game and we should anticipate that Russell will be back to his top 5 self in week 12. This week he faces the Philadelphia Eagles who are in the middle of the pack against the QB position which makes this a much easier matchup. Philly is inbetween Pittsburgh and Cleveland agianst the QB position and Russell averaged approx. 24 fantasy points when he played those teams early this year. I have Wilson projected as a top 3 play this week at the QB position and he alwasy possesses the potential to end up as the best QB on the week. Fantasy Football Projection: 277 yards 2.2 TDs passing 25 yards 0.2 TDs rushing

Derek Carr is definitely not the flashiest player in the world nor does his name strike tremors and fear in his opponents, but he really has been a decent fill in for fantasy owners as of late. Carr posted 17 fantasy points in week 11 when he threw for 292 yards and 1 TD against the Bengals. This was a solid performance against a helpless team and Carr again gets a great matchup in week 12 when he faces the New York Jets. The Jets are currently allowing the 10th most fantasy points per game to the QB position and are an extremely welcome sight for any QB streaming option. I believe that Carr will find himself on the edge of QB1 to QB2 in wek 12 mainly due to his incredible matchup. Fantasy Football Projection: 295 yards 1.6 TDs

Derrick Henry is back from bye this week and fantasy owners are rejoicing the big running backs return to their fantasy lineups. Prior to his week 11 bye, Henry blew up for 188 yards and 2 TDs against the Kansas City Chiefs and 99 total yards and 2 total TDs vs. the Carolina Panthers. The man has been a monster and a dominant force each and every week especially against plus matchups. This week Henry will face the Jacksonville Jaguars who are actually allowing the 4th MOST fantasy points to the running back position at 28.3 points per game. Needless to say… you are absolutely starting Derrick Henry and you are expecting another giant week. Fantasy Football Projection: 96 yards 1 TD rushing 2 receptions 25 yards 0.2 TDs receiving

I really don’t want to speak too soon, but Todd Gurley kind of looked like his old self in week 11 … at least in his workload! Gurley carried the ball 25 times for 97 yards and 1 TD as well as catching 3 passes for 36 yards good for about 18.8 fantasy points. This is a much healthier stat line than the weeks prior where he struggled to get to double digit fantasy points. Maybe the Rams were resting him for the playoff push or maybe the game script just pushed them towards Gurley, but either way it was a very welcome sign for fantasy owners. Gurley will face the Ravens in week 12 who allow the 10th least fantasy points per game to the running back position. This will be a much tougher matchup and im assuming they will not be in the position to run the clock out like they were in week 11 so Gurley will have to see an increase in his passing game usage to remain a top play. I have Gurley ranked as a low end RB 1 this week hoping that we continue to see this volume from him. Fantasy Football Projection: 57 yards 0.5 TDs rushing 4 receptions 33 yards 0.2 TDs receiving

D.J. Chark has been absolutely incredible for any fantasy football owner lucky enough to have either drafted him extremely late or (even better) picked him up off of the waiver wire early in the season. Chark continued his tear with a remarkable week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts with a 8 for 104 yards and 2 TD line. This game proves that Chark has a connection with QB Nick Foles who has just come back from a shoulder injury that kept him out much of the season. In fact, Foles is most likely an upgrade from rookie QB Gardner Minshew and could mean continued WR1 weeks for Chark in the future. This is exactly what I am expecting in week 12 when Chark faces the Titans who are in the middle of the pack at allowing fantasy points to the wide receiver position. I have Chark ranked at number 9 this week expecting another strong week and a top 12 finish. Fantasy Football Projection: 5 receptions 75 yards 0.6 TDs

We finally saw what I think a lot of us (fantasy football owners) were exepcting from Calvin Ridley especially after former Falcons WR Sanu got traded to the Patriots and TE Hooper went down with an injury. We expected Ridey would soak up much of the targets left by each of those players and it had not quite come to fruition until week 11. Ridley was electric against the Carolina Panthers catching 8 passes for 143 yards and 1 TD. Ridley is the Fantasy Projection WR12 this week based on his recent performance as well as his incredible matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers are allowing 46.7 fantasy points per game to the WR position good for the WORST in the league. Obviously Ridley could not get a better matchup this week and he is finally producing at the level we expected which is why he is a WR1 this week. Fantasy Football Projection: 6 receptions 69 yards 0.5 TDs

  2. George Kittle SF vs. GB
  3. Darren Waller OAK at NYJ
  4. Mark Andrews BAL at LAR
  5. Jared Cook NO vs. CAR
  6. Greg Olsen CAR at NO
  7. Ryan Griffin NYJ vs. OAK
  8. Gerald Everett LAR vs. BAL
  9. Dallas Goedert PHI vs. SEA
  10. Jacob Hollister SEA at PHI
  11. Cameron Brate TB at ATL
  12. Eric Ebron IND at HOU

Well Hello Cameron Brate! Cameron Brate had a fantasy football relevant week in week 11 when he caught 10 passes for 73 yards after fellow Buccaneers TE O.J. Howard was benched. He did all of this agiainst the New Orleans Saints who are currently allowing the 12th least fantasy points to the TE position on a per game basis. It is unknown to us whether Brate will continue to see this significant volume which is why he is still fairly low on the week 12 fantasy football rankings at the tight end position. This week Brate will face the Atlanta Falcons who allow the 14th most fantasy points per game to the tight end position. This is a slightly better matchup for Brate, but his performance completely depends on the unreliable amount of targets he saw in week 11. I have Brate above Ebron this week who has been very disappointing, but below Jacob Hollister who has seen two significant fantasy performances in a row. Brate is definitely startable, but I would caution you to lower your expectations from his performance in week 11. Fantasy Football Projection: 5 receptions 56 yards 0.3 TDs
