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

Like every week, find our advice to field the best possible team in your fantasy leagues.

We remind you that we are not talking about stars, like Patrick Mahomes, Derrick Henry or Davante Adams, who are steadfast in the workforce. The idea is to help you with the choices for more delicate positions like those of WR2-3 or that of FLEX, and during « Bye Weeks ».


The players to line up

Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers)

For his first start of the season, Cam Newton did not win the game but he had a good game. Her mobility is interesting in Fantasy, and she could do some damage against the Miami defense.

Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks)

I love Russell Wilson and wish to see him bounce back quickly. Washington’s defense is the Quarterbacks’ most points-scoring defense this season, so now is the time for the Seahawks star.

Other QBs that can be lined up: Kirk Cousins ​​(MIN), Jimmy Garoppolo (SF), Taylor Heinicke (WAS)

Players to keep warm

Tua Tagovailoa (Miami Dolphins)

Overall, Tua is a secondary option in Fantasy, and it has a medium cap right now. This is particularly the case against Carolina, who had a defenseless day against Washington, but who remains very solid in the air.

Derek Carr (Las Vegas Raiders)

Like his team, Derek Carr is tough. So good at the start of the season, he’s struggling to come out of decent games at the moment. And that should not work out against a very good defense from Dallas, who has just contained Patrick Mahomes.

Other QBs to leave on the bench: Ryan Tannehill (TEN), Daniel Jones (NYG), Matt Ryan (ATL), Ben Roethlisberger (PIT)


The players to line up

Miles Sanders (Philadelphia Eagles)

Back last week after 3 games of absence, Miles Sanders seemed in good shape. He should take advantage of the Eagles’ new, race-based game plan, as well as Jordan Howard’s injury, to have plenty of balls.

Antonio Gibson (Washington Football Team)

I had Gibson in the sits last week, but he was pretty good in a tough game. No reason therefore not to trust him this weekend, facing one of the worst defenses on the ground in the league in Fantasy (Seattle).

Tony Pollard (Dallas Cowboys)

The Raiders are still struggling on the ground, and they got opened by Joe Mixon last week. With Ezekiel Elliott a bit touched, the Cowboys’ RBs should share the work a bit more, and both will have opportunities.

Other RBs that can be lined up: Cordarrelle Patterson (ATL), Melvin Gordon (DEN), David Montgomery (CHI), Jeff Wilson (SF), David Johnson (HOU)

Players to keep warm

Alex Collins (Seattle Seahawks)

With Chris Carson out for the rest of the season, the Seahawks are limited on their backfield. Alex Collins still seems to be the number 1 option, but he’s not performing, and DeeJay Dallas has more and more balls. Flee the Seattle RBs against Washington, which defends better on the ground lately.

Myles Gaskin (Miami Dolphins)

The Miami RB took advantage of a favorable game to shine last week, and the reverse is expected this weekend. Only one team allows less fantasy points than Carolina to opposing running backs, and Gaskin can’t even compensate with a few receptions.

Other RB to leave on the bench: D’Onta Foreman & Dontrell Hilliard (TEN), Josh Jacobs & Kenyan Drake (LV), Zack Moss (BUF)


The players to line up

Darnell Mooney (Chicago Bears)

In Allen Robinson’s absence, he’s the Bears’ clear WR number, and he behaves like one. Whether it’s Justin Fields or Andy Dalton (who will start tonight), he’s a good bet against Detroit. The Lions’ defense is poor and he will be targeted very often.

Brandon Aiyuk (San Francisco 49ers)

It’s been better for Brandon Aiyuk for a few weeks, and it’s been better for the entire 49ers offense for that matter. The Vikings continue to be very generous with opposing WRs, and the explosiveness of Deebo Samuel AND Brandon Aiyuk can create problems.

Elijah Moore (New York Jets)

The Jets have figured out that the rookie is the most dangerous player in their offense, and he’s been having a consistent high volume of play for several weeks now. A trend that should continue, regardless of the QB in the center of the attack.

Other WRs that can be lined up: Michael Gallup (DAL), Brandin Cooks (HOU), Marvin Jones (JAX)

Players to keep warm

Jarvis Landry (Cleveland Browns)

His knee clearly bothers him, his quarterback is on the streets, and Cleveland’s offense doesn’t produce much in the air. Let’s wait for the situation to improve before relaunching Landry and the Browns’ WRs.

Odell Beckham Jr (Los Angeles Rams)

OBJ may be more comfortable attacking the Rams after bye week, but I don’t expect much just yet.

Kenny Golladay (New York Giants)

Jason Garrett’s dismissal can free up the Giants’ offense and some underused or poorly used players, including Kenny Golladay. But we’re just waiting to see, and there’s a good chance Golladay will find himself in a one-on-one with hot Darius Slay this week.

Other WRs to leave on the bench: Courtland Sutton (DEN), Tyler Boyd (CIN), Laviska Shenault (JAX)


The players to line up

Rob Gronkowski (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

Returning from injury in Week 11, the Gronk immediately regained his role as a safety valve for Tom Brady. The Colts are struggling to contain the TEs this season, and the Bucs duo will try to take advantage.

Pat Freiermuth (Pittsburgh Steelers)

He will not have Eric Ebron in his paws to steal some receptions, especially in redzone. His chances of scoring a touchdown are strong this week against Cincinnati.

Other TEs that can be aligned: Noah Fant (DEN), Dalton Schultz (DAL), Evan Engram (NYG)

The player to keep warm

Jared Cook (Los Angeles Chargers)

The Bolts TE has not done anything for several games now and we are close to breaking up. In addition, the Broncos still have not allowed a single touchdown to a tight-end this season.

Tyler Conklin (Minnesota Vikings)

Another team that limits TEs well: San Francisco. Bad news for Tyler Conklin, who is already struggling to produce regularly, and who is only option number 4 for Kirk Cousins.

Other TEs to leave on the bench: Dan Arnold (JAX), Tyler Higbee (LAR), Cole Kmet (CHI)


Defenses to align

Carolina panthers

A rebound is expected after a game without last week against Washington. Faced with the very average offensive line of the Dolphins, we can expect a few sacks and loss of ball.

Houston texans

They were very good on this side of the field against the Titans (4 interceptions), and the poster is too good not to say that it is necessary to give it a try.

Other interesting defenses: Eagles, Falcons

The tusks to keep warm

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts defense is playing quite a bit right now, with two straight games less than 20 points conceded and several forced ball losses. But it is very difficult to stop Tom Brady and the Bucs armada.

Tampa bay buccaneers

Also in this game, the defense of Tampa is also to be avoided. Jonathan Taylor is on fire and able to punch through any defense, and Carson Wentz protects the ball pretty well. Indy doesn’t give much in Fantasy.
