Fantasy Football, Week 12 – Players to field and leave on the bench

Every week, find our tips for fielding the best possible team in your Fantasy leagues.

We remind you that we are not talking about stars, like Patrick Mahomes, Jonathan Taylor or Justin Jefferson who are indestructible in the workforce. The idea is to help you on the choices for the more delicate positions like those of WR2-3 or that of the FLEX, and during the « Bye Weeks ».


Players to line up

Geno Smith (Seattle Seahawks)

Even if no team is in « bye » this week, we can still line up Geno Smith. The Seattle QB is a safe bet this season at the moment, and the poster is favorable against a suspicious Las Vegas defense.

Derek Carr (Las Vegas Raiders)

In the same match, Derek Carr should be able to continue his good series. The attack of the Raiders is a little more effective lately, in particular thanks to the good connection between the QB and Davante Adams.

Other QBs that can be fielded: Dak Prescott (DAL), Justin Herbert (LAC), Jimmy Garoppolo (SF), Ryan Tannehill (TEN)

Players to keep warm

Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers)

Things are going better for Rodgers, who has been productive in the last two games. But Philly’s defense is one of the strongest against opposing QBs, and the secondary lines should make it tough for the Packers’ WRs.

Daniel Jones (New York Giants)

The QB of the Giants remains on a complicated match against the Lions, and the loss of Wan’Dale Robinson does not help things for the aerial attack. Historically in difficulty against the Cowboys, he should again suffer against this formidable defense.

Other QBs to leave on the bench: Russell Wilson (DEN), Jared Goff (DET), Marcus Mariota (ATL), Trevor Lawrence (JAX), Justin Fields (CHI)

Running backs

Players to line up

Jeff Wilson (Miami Dolphins)

Wilson scored in his first 2 games for the Dolphins, and the opportunity is perfect to continue the series. No NFL team has allowed more fantasy points to opposing RBs than Houston. Raheem Mostert is also playable in FLEX.

Latavius ​​Murray (Denver Broncos)

The way is royal on the Denver backfield for Latavius ​​Murray, since Melvin Gordon has been cut and Chase Edmonds is injured. He should therefore have a lot of balls and actively participate in aerial play.

Other possible RBs: Devin Singletary (BUF), James Conner (ARI), Ezekiel Elliott (DAL), Antonio Gibson (WAS), Miles Sanders (PHI), Michael Carter (NYJ)

Players to keep warm

Cordarelle Patterson (Atlanta Falcons)

His 103-yard touchdown on a kickoff return made him shine last week, but watch out for Washington’s defense, which is formidable right now. Dameon Pierce paid the price last weekend, and did not exist.

D’Onta Foreman (Carolina Panthers)

In the tough against the Ravens in the previous game, Foreman hit another big defense in Denver. Also, Sam Darnold’s return to business makes this attack blurry.

Other RBs to leave on the bench: D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams (DET), Kareem Hunt (CLE), Cam Akers (LAR)


Players to line up

Jakobi Meyers (New England Patriots)

It remains risky to play a receiver for the Patriots, because the offense is not efficient. But he’s the No. 1 WR on this team and should find some space against Minnesota’s middle side lines.

Donovan Peoples-Jones (Cleveland Browns)

Perfect complement to Amari Cooper, DPJ continues to produce pleasant stat lines for a WR3 in Fantasy. That could still be the case this week against the Bucs who aren’t fabulous on the cover.

Other possible WRs: Terry McLaurin (WAS), Michael Pittman (IND), Joshua Palmer and Keenan Allen (LAC), Demarcus Robinson (BAL), Garrett Wilson (NYJ)

Players to keep warm

DJ Moore (Carolina Panthers)

The Panthers WR could benefit from the return of Sam Darnold, who has a better connection to him than Baker Mayfield. But this week, it looks risky because Moore will be directly opposed to Patrick Surtain II.

Adam Thielen (Minnesota Vikings)

The arrival of TJ Hockenson made Adam Thielen disappear. The WR doesn’t have much playing volume anymore and he’s not producing. In addition, the Pats defend the slot well.

Other WRs to leave on the bench: Diontae Johnson (PIT), Darnell Mooney (CHI), Brandin Cooks (HOU)

Tight ends

Players to line up

Dawson Knox (Buffalo Bills)

Passes are returning to Dawson Knox in recent games, he has just signed his best performance of the season against Cleveland. He has the opportunity to follow up against the Lions, who you can think of him if you need help at the TE position.

Other possible TEs: Pat Freiermuth (PIT), Gerald Everett (LAC)

Players to keep warm

Robert Tonyan (Green Bay Packers)

Little volume, only 1 touchdown on the season, and an overall struggling attack. That’s a lot against Robert Tonyan. We can even consider cutting it.

Other TEs to leave on the bench: Cole Kmet (CHI), Trey McBride (ARI)


The defenses to line up

Kansas City Chiefs

But where did the terrible Rams attack go? Without Cooper Kupp and probably without Matthew Stafford, LA should suffer even more this week. Take the opportunity to align the defense of the Chiefs.

Miami Dolphins

Last week, Washington’s defense finished No. 1 in Fantasy scoring 19 points against Houston. The Texans’ lucky opponent is Miami this weekend.

Other interesting defenses: Steelers, Commanders, Broncos

The tusks to keep warm

New Orleans Saints

Overall very disappointing this season, the Saints’ defense could be overtaken by the variety of San Francisco’s offensive weapons.

Cincinnati Bengals

The average performances accumulate for the Bengals, and the poster of the weekend is not very favorable. The Titans play clean and don’t concede much to opposing defenses in Fantasy.
