Best Week 12 Fantasy Football Players by Position
Week 12 Top 3 For Free!
Josh Allen – Allen has a date with the Chargers who are QB friendly. LAC is giving up the 6th most fantasy points to QBs this season. It is set up very nicely for Allen to have a big day because the Chargers do not excel at stopping the run or pass. Allen loves defenses that allow him to use his arm and legs and he just plays with more confidence when he can do both. Also add in the back and forth track meet game this should be. Allen is a top guy.
Justin Herbert – Herbert is back on the list for the second week in a row. This is a firework game between Buffalo and LAC who both have potent offenses. Buffalo is ranked 6th in sacks, however, they are allowing an alarming 46% of 3rd downs converted which means Herbert will be able to keep the chains moving. If you like points scored, this is the game to see.
Patrick Mahomes – If Jared Goff just threw for over 300 yards on Tampa’s defense, Mahomes surely will. The Chiefs throw it every play anyway. This is no surprise because Tampa’s weakness is their secondary. Over 45 pass attempts for Mahomes and 4 total TDs also.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Derek Carr. Atlanta’s run defense is not bad statistically. I think the play action will be there for Carr often as well as a few shots deep to Ruggs or Agholor.
Dalvin Cook – Who else. He is a machine but also keeps having great matchups.
Wayne Gallman – Gallman is the diamond in the rough you were looking for. He is surely carrying some fantasy owners who were lacking a back or got hit hard with injuries. He will continue his borderline RB2 usage and production against Cincinnati’s poor defense this week.
Chase Edmonds – The Cardinals have had some extra time to scheme for this game against New England. They should expect a ton of attention on Deandre Hopkins. They should expect a spy on Kyler. Edmonds is the x factor. He trumps Drake because he should be the guy they use to take advantage of man coverage from New England’s LBs. Also if he steals a few carries from Drake that helps to but his usage in the passing game helps his value tremendously this week.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Malcolm Brown. It is always risky playing someone from the Rams backfield because of how they rotate. However, Brown is the bully back and will be needed against San Fran’s tough defense.
Tyreek Hill – Hill is on fire right now with back to back games over 100 yards. He has also scored 6 TDs in the last 4 games. Tampa Bay does not have an answer for the Cheetah.
Mike Thomas – Taysom Hill peppered Thomas with targets last week and he will need to do so again this week. Denver’s defense has improved throughout the season but early on their corners were the weakness. Sean Payton will do a good job as always of moving Thomas around and making him a focal point.
Corey Davis – Corey Davis has quietly been leading the Titans in receptions and yards. Although it is by a small margin over AJ Brown, Davis is showing up well. This week the Titans have a rematch with the Colts who had an answer for Brown holding him to just 1 catch for 21 yards. Davis had 5 for 67 in that meeting but he will be the x factor in this one. Over 100 yards and 2 scores for Davis coming up.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Nelson Agholor. The Raiders will need to hit their shots this week against Atlanta in what could be a trap game. I expect Agholor to get behind the Atlanta defense who has made it a usual sight this season allowing WRs to run by them.
Darren Waller – The Falcons are giving up the most fantasy points to TEs this season. Waller is currently the TE2 and has to be heavily involved this week.
Evan Engram – The Bengals have allowed the 5th most points to TEs. I expect the Giants to have a clean game against a Bengals team not playing for anything now especially with Joe Burrow out.
Jack Doyle – Doyle scored last week against GB and has scored in 3 of his last 4 games. The Titans are going to have to replace Jayon Brown who is now injured and hope his replacement can keep up with the Colts unique passing attack that is very tight end friendly.
Big Risk Big Reward Play. Tyler Eifert. The Browns have not played TEs well this year. Whether it is garbage time or not, I see Eifert being left wide open for a score.
Tyler Bass – Buffalo is going to put up points and move the ball well. Plenty of XPs and FGs in store for Bass who is having a great rookie season.
Cody Parkey – The Browns will have their way with the Jags but Parkey’s 3 points will be icing on the cake during a comfortable day for the Browns.
Mason Crosby – This Packers Bears game is big for the division. Expect the Bears to play desperate and force the Packers to settle for 3.
NYG – The G Men should have a walk in the park. Ryan Finley has not looked good in any NFL action he has had in the last two seasons. The Giants are hot right now and get a lay up this week.
New Orleans – I feel like Denver’s defense can slow down New Orleans’ offense, but their defense should feast. The Saints have a top 5 defense statistically going up against a Denver offense that is less than stellar. I like this to be a low scoring game and the Saints to win the sack battle and turnover battle.
LAR – The Rams are looking for revenge on the 49ers who beat them 24-16 earlier this season. The 49ers are so banged up right now and even coming off a bye week they are still missing players. The Rams on the other hand are on a two game win streak and looking to take control in the NFC West!
