Week 12 Fantasy Rankings


QUARTERBACK:

  1. Tom Brady (@ NYJ)
  2. Ben Roethlisberger (@ IND)
  3. Drew Brees (vs LA)
  4. Matt Ryan (vs ARI)
  5. Aaron Rodgers (@ PHI)
  6. Russell Wilson (@ TB)
  7. Cam Newton (@ OAK)
  8. Marcus Mariota (@ CHI)
  9. Derek Carr (vs CAR)
  10. Kirk Cousins (@ DAL)
  11. Dak Prescott (vs WAS)
  12. Philip Rivers (@ HOU)
  13. Sam Bradford (@ DET)
  14. Tyrod Taylor (vs JAC)
  15. Carson Palmer (@ ATL)

  17. Jared Goff (@ NO)
  18. Carson Wentz (vs GB)
  19. Matthew Stafford (vs MIN)
  20. Joe Flacco (vs CIN)

  22. Colin Kaepnernick (@ MIA)
  23. Jameis Winston (vs SEA)
  24. Blake Bortles (@ BUF)
  25. Ryan Fitzpatrick (vs NE)

 

Big Ben Roethlisberger should be eating a lot on Thanksgiving night verus the Colts… Drew Brees is always an elite play at home and had 10 days to get ready for the Rams… Matt Ryan is only #4 because of the easy matchups for Big Ben and Brees… Aaron Rodgers will just keep throwing it until the Packers finally stop someone on defense… Derek Carr could have had a much bigger game in Week 11 if not for drops… Kirk Cousins is getting paid this offseason… Sam Bradford is a better option than Matthew Stafford as the two do battle for first place in the NFC North… Jameis Winston probably should stay out of lineups against the Seahawks this week.

  48. Josh Ferguson (vs PIT)
  49. Kenjon Barner (vs GB)
  50. Jalen Richard (vs CAR)

 

Le’Veon Bell is the best running back in the league and will prove it on Thanksgiving…. Melvin Gordon should be well-rested coming off a bye week and is probably a top-three option with an easy schedule the rest of the way… Look at that: Thomas Rawls in the top-five; he will be on a lot of championship rosters… Devontae Booker remains an RB1 coming off a bye after getting 24 carries in the last game… If Mark Ingram (concussion) is cleared for Sunday, he is a solid RB2 after looking good last Thursday… Latavius Murray is ranked top-15 under the assumption that Luke Kuechly (concussion) won’t play for Carolina; that and the assumption that Oakland will give him the ball in the red zone… Frank Gore will have a lot less scoring chances with Andrew Luck (concussion) likely out… Fat Rob a.k.a. Robert Kelley ate last week, but Washington probably won’t be nursing a lead against the Cowboys… Keep an eye on LeSean McCoy’s status, but he might be limited if he’s active… Jeremy Hill should be the Bengals’ workhorse with Giovani Bernard (knee) done for the season, but the Ravens are a tough matchup… Good luck trying to figure out who will get carries for Philly with both Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles banged up; we have Wendell Smallwood ranked the highest.

 

WIDE RECEIVER:

  1. Antonio Brown (@ IND)
  2. Julio Jones (vs ARI)
  3. Amari Cooper (vs CAR)
  4. Jordy Nelson (@ PHI)
  5. Odell Beckham Jr. (@ CLE)
  6. Brandin Cooks (vs LA)
  7. Julian Edelman (@ NYJ)
  8. Dez Bryant (vs WAS)
  9. Allen Robinson (@ BUF)
  10. Michael Thomas (vs LA)
  11. Michael Crabtree (vs CAR)

  22. Randall Cobb (@ PHI)
  23. Mike Evans (vs SEA)
  24. Steve Smith (vs CIN)
  25. Tyler Boyd (@ BAL)
  26. Brandon Marshall (vs NE)
  27. John Brown (@ ATL)
  28. Corey Coleman (vs NYG)
  29. Terrelle Pryor (vs NYG)
  30. Kelvin Benjamin (@ OAK)
  31. T.Y. Hilton (vs PIT)
  32. Michael Floyd (@ ATL)
  33. Sterling Shepard (@ CLE)
  34. Jarvis Landry (vs SF)
  35. Willie Snead (vs LA)
  36. Mike Wallace (vs CIN)
  37. Adam Thielen (@ DET)
  38. Cole Beasley (vs WAS)
  39. Brandon LaFell (@ BAL)
  40. Kenny Britt (@ NO)
  41. Golden Tate (vs MIN)
  42. Pierre Garcon (@ DAL)
  43. Donte Moncrief (vs PIT)
  44. Tyrell Williams (@ HOU)
  45. DeSean Jackson (@ DAL)
  46. Eli Rogers (@ IND)
  47. Marvin Jones (vs MIN)
  48. Tyler Lockett (@ TB)
  49. Tyreek Hill (@ DEN)
  50. Laquon Treadwell (@ DET)

 

Julio Jones roasted Patrick Peterson in their last meeting, so yeah, he’s still top-two with Antonio Brown, who will be facing the Colts (potentially without Vontae Davis)… Amari Cooper might be putting the inexperienced Panthers corners on skates this Sunday… Brandin Cooks and Michael Thomas are both top-10 plays at home… DeVante Parker could be a difference-maker down the stretch, as he finally looks healthy… Out of Philly’s receivers, Jordan Matthews is the most likely to be next in line to shred the Green Bay secondary…  Stefon Diggs would be a lot higher if he wasn’t banged up; he hasn’t been great this season when he’s coming into a game limited… Brock Osweiler’s play is really hurting DeAndre Hopkins Mike Evans drops way down the rankings with a matchup with Seattle for Week 12… Tyler Boyd is the most likely candidate to step up with A.J. Green (hamstring) out for a few weeks… John Brown or Michael Floyd will probably have a big game against Atlanta’s weak secondary… Kelvin Benjamin doesn’t have a great matchup with Sean Smith… T.Y. Hilton should probably be benched if Andrew Luck is out.

TIGHT END:

  1. Rob Gronkowski (@ NYJ)
  2. Greg Olsen (@ OAK)
  3. Jimmy Graham (@ TB)
  4. Delanie Walker (@ CHI)
  5. Jordan Reed (@ DAL)
  6. Kyle Rudolph (@ DET)
  7. Tyler Eifert (@ BAL)
  8. Eric Ebron (vs MIN)
  9. Zach Ertz (vs GB)
  10. Travis Kelce (@ DEN)
  11. Antonio Gates (@ HOU)
  12. Martellus Bennett (@ NYJ)
  13. Vance McDonald (@ MIA)
  14. C.J. Fiedorowicz (vs SD)
  15. Coby Fleener (vs LA)
  16. Jason Witten (vs WAS)
  17. Gary Barnidge (vs NYG)
  18. Cameron Brate (vs SEA)
  19. Julius Thomas (@ BUF)
  20. Hunter Henry (@ HOU)

 

If Gronk plays, he’s the number one tight end… Greg Olsen should bounce back after a down week… Same for Delanie Walker; after a down week against the Colts, he should do work against Chicago… Kyle Rudolph had only one catch against Detroit a couple of weeks ago, but it was a touchdown. He is a decent bet for another TD on Thanksgiving… Eric Ebron has been a great option when healthy… Zach Ertz seems to be getting more involved in the Eagles offense.

 

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS

  1. Minnesota Vikings (@ DET)
  2. Buffalo Bills (vs JAC)
  3. Tennessee Titans (vs CHI)
  4. Pittsburgh Steelers (@ IND)
  5. Seattle Seahawks (@ TB)
  6. New England Patriots (@ NYJ)
  7. Denver Broncos (vs KC)
  8. Kansas City Chiefs (@ DEN)
  9. Baltimore Ravens (vs CIN)
  10. New York Giants (@ CLE)
  11. Philadelphia Eagles (vs GB)
  12. Arizona Cardinals (@ ATL)
  13. Miami Dolphins (vs SF)
  14. New Orleans Saints (vs LA)
  15. Houston Texans (vs SD)

 

The Vikings might be back on track after two 100-yard touchdowns from their defense and special teams last week against Arizona… Blake Bortles threw a pick six for two consecutive games. The Bills will try to make it three, but be careful of Allen Robinson and company getting free in the Bills secondary… Tennessee and Pittsburgh may both be facing backup quarterbacks and should be excellent options… The Eagles and Cardinals might do better than their ranking, but they do have tough matchups this week.
