Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson had another incredible performance against the New England Patriots who are usually a team you don’t want to see your Fantasy QB facing, but this was not the same for Watson. Watson put up 344 yards and 2 TDs passing while adding 36 yards rushing and 1 TD. This was an extremely impressive game for Watson who has seemed to connect with all receivers and is playing with some renewed confidence. Watson will continue to roll against the Lions in week 12 who are a middle of the pack defense against opposing QBs, but are a much better matchup on paper than the Patritos who Watson dismantled this week. You should continue trusting Watson as a top 5-6 QB moving forward. Fantasy Projection: 272 yards 1.7 TDs passing 29 yards 0.4 TDs rushing

Taysom Hill

If you havent head yet… there was a QB by the name of Taysom Hill who made a start fr injured star QB Drew Brees in week 11, and he was pretty surprising. Many people figured that Hill would simply be a gadget QB and fellow QB Jameis Winston would do much of the actual passing this did not come true. Taysom Hill was the only QB in the game and actually did plenty of passing. Hill threw for 233 yards and rushed for 51 yards and 2 TDs. Yes, the rushing did save his performance, but you have to understand that is the main facet of Hill’s game that should persist as long as he is starting. Hill will face the Denver Broncos in week 12 who are a middling defense against the QB position and also against RBs. I think there are certain situations where you can consider starting Hill in week 12, but I won’t be expecting an exact repeat of week 11. Fantasy Projection: 202 yards 1 TD passing 61 yards 0.4 TDs rushing

Derrick Henry

Derrick Henry had another great game in week 11 against a tough run defense in the Baltimore Ravens. Henry rushed for 133 yards and 1 TD while adding 1 reception for a loss of a yard. Henry is still extremely consistent and seems to get even better as the season continues. Henry will have his real test in week 12 when he faces the Colts who are the 3rd toughest run defense for a fantasy running back to face. Henry faced this same tough run D in week 10 where he still managed to pile up 103 yards rushing and 6 yards receiving on 1 reception. I don’t think that Henry will have a bad game because I think he has proven to be fairly matchup proof, but I would lower your expectations slightly. Fantasy Projection: 92 yards 0.9 TDs 1 receptions 13 yards 0.1 TDs receiving

Ezekiel Elliott

There may be some renewed hope for running back Zeke Elliott after some shifts on the offensive line and QB Andy Dalton back in the lineup. Elliott was trending in the wrong direction after star QB Dak Prescott went down due to injury, but he has seemed to turn the corner at least after week 11 where he had 103 yards rushing while adding 2 receptions for 11 yards and 1 TD. This was a performance that all Elliott’s fantasy owners needed to see and I hope continues into week 12 and beyond. In week 12, Elliott will take on the Washington Redkins on Thanksgiving Day who are the 4th worst matchup for opposing RBs. It was nice to see you can rely on Elliott in decent matchups, but I will still be wary of him until I see him perform again in a tough matchup like this upcoming week. Fantasy Projection: 72 yards 0.7 TDs rushing 3 receptions 22 yards 0.1 TDs

Keenan Allen

Keenan Allen has been utterly impressive with his rookie QB Justin Herbert. If you didn’t know any better you would think that they had been team mates for the past 5 years. In week 11, Allen had 16 receptions for 145 yards and 1 TD… 16 receptions!! Thats and incredible stat line for any receiver and I expect to see the same things going forward as long as both Allen and Herbert are healthy. In week 12, Allen will line up against the Buffao Bills who are a tough matchup for opposing number 1 receivers. I expect Allen will have a slight down game from this week, but his volume is so high that you are starting him as a WR1 no matter what. Fantasy Projection: 8 receptions 88 yards 0.4 TDs

Diontae Johnson

Steelers receiver Diontae Johnson had another amazing performance in week 11 when he faced the Jacksonville Jagaurs. Johnson put up 12 receptions for 111 yards in an incredible game where he looked like one of Big Ben’s main, if not first, read. Johnson has absolultely been one of the surprises of the fantasy season as he has multiple WR1 performances and was not drafted as a top pick. I will slow te roll a bit on Johsnon in week 12 as he takes on the Baltimore Ravens who are 5th toughest defense for your WR to face. I’m still expecting in most situations you will continue to start Johnson, but I would temper your expectations form this performance he had agaisnt the Jags. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 76 yards 0.5 TDs

Travis Kelce

I honestly am not sure if there is anything that can stop Travis Kelce from being the number 1 TE on the week besides maybe maybe a bye week. Kelce was again incredible in week 11 when he faced the Raiders and had 8 receptions for 127 yards and 1 TD. Kelce has only had 2 somewhat disappointing games this season and the rest have been almost double the points of the rest of the options at the TE position. Kelce was absolutely worth any high draft pick you spent on him and you should continuet to start him as the best TE in the league. Kelce will face the Buccaneers in week 12 who are in the middle of the pack against opposing TEs and Kelce should continue to feast. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 82 yards 0.4 TDs
