Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville Jaguars

Rookie Wall?


Fournette came off of essentially 20 days of resting and rehabbing the injured ankle suffered in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville’s October 15th loss to the Rams, when he suited up last week against the L.A. Chargers. Last week, he carried 17 times for 33 yards. According to Florida Football Insiders, Leonard Fournette's ankle is "still not right," and he could be limited if he plays this week against the Browns.

I’ve heard a few people recognize that Cleveland’s run defense has been underrated this year. They started out pretty strong, but they have been fading lately, especially when it comes to the pass-catching backs over the past five games. Yeldon or Ivory could be that sneaky flex you’re looking for.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Ground and Pound


According to Forecast.io, it's expected to be 39° F and with a 18% chance of snow and 20 MPH wind in Cleveland at 1:00 PM ET.

This is something to watch Sunday morning, especially if you were high on the Jacksonville passing game facing Cleveland this weekend. The snow doesn’t matter, but the wind could eliminate any deep balls. If you’re looking for a Dede or K. Cole explosion, like I have been, I think we’re going to have to wait at least one more week. Marquis Lee should be fine, he’ll still get his targets. The running game should benefit, but Fournette is questionable with an ankle.

Jay Ajayi

Philadelphia Eagles

Ajayi Slated for More Work in Week 11


Coaches have come out and said there is a concentrated effort to increase Ajayi's workload.

Fantasy Goo: Certainly Corey Clement impressed in their last game, Week 9 against Denver. However, he won't sustain the pace of 3TDs on just 13 touches. I do like both players in GPP, I would certainly save Clement for the larger tournaments where you take on more risk in order to differentiate yourself from the field. Still, Ajayi has had a bye week and a game to get familiar with his new digs. Each game from now on, should highlight his comfort and growth in the system.

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons

Coleman to Increase Workload Sans Freeman


Devonta Freeman is in concussion protocol. That leaves Tevin 'Betchya Bottom Dollar" Coleman to pick up extra duties.

Fantasy Goo: Freeman was taken out very early on in last week's game. Because of this, Coleman seized the reins with command. He finished as Draft Kings 10th best RB of the week. Their Week 11 matchup with the Seahawks could easily turn into a high schoring affair as Seattle is without starters Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, and Jarran Reed. What Seattle puts on the field will not resemble what we are accustomed to. Coleman should seize thee opportunity.

Buffalo Bills

Bills Getting Gashed


In the last 3 weeks, the Buffalo Bills have given up 8 TDS. There is not a team in the league that has given up more than 8 rushing TDS ALL SEASON!

Fantasy Goo: There is trepidation about Gordon this week. Ekeler made a bit of a name for himself last week as Gordon owners experienced fits or rage and madness last week. I still like Gordon even in cash this week. Still whichever back you prefer, they should have a field day.

Jamaal Williams

Green Bay Packers

Next Man Up


As expected, Ty Montgomery officially ruled OUT for Sunday against the Ravens. Jamaal Williams should start at running back.

Williams is not Montgomery or Jones, I would not recommend starting him if you can prevent it. It will probably take a positive game script for him to be heavily use, don’t be surprised if we see Cobb being used in the backfield, especially in third-and-long situations.

Alshon Jeffery

Philadelphia Eagles

Open Door for Agholor


Eagles coach Doug Pederson says that Alshon Jeffery's ankle injury has been lingering for a while, but he is "optimistic" he'll play against the Cowboys Sunday night. He will be listed as questionable.

I’m looking at Nelson Agholor having a nice opportunity to put up some points with Dallas being the 24th ranked defense against opposing WR’s. Ertz coming off of the injury report is an obvious play, he’s a must start whenever he’s on the field.

It seems as though Jeffery plays through injuries every year, but he’s not very effective when he does. His injuries tend to linger and former performance enhancer users tend to get hurt more often.

Kareem Hunt

Kansas City Chiefs

KC Ready to Run


The KC/NYG game could experience heavy winds, and certainly, a blowout of the Giants is a likely outcome as well. If either, or both of these potential situations play out, it could be good things for the KC ground game.

Fantasy Goo: The Giants have surrendered 3 rushing TD in their last 2 games. On the season, they have given up the 5th most yards to opposing backs. Hunt is a great cash game play, and in GPPs, I will toss out a few line-ups with West, maybe 5%. If indeed it is a blowout, the Chiefs, led by Reid who is 16-2 off a bye, could look to lighten the load for their workhorse RB and let Charcandrick bat cleanup.

Sterling Shepard

New York Giants

Sterling Shepard's Time to Shine


The Giants are going to need to put the ball in the air against KC. Keep an eye on the winds in this one. If it is north of 15mph, I will lessen my DFS shares.

Fantasy Goo: If the winds are not bad, Shep could get some looks as he should dominate KC's Steven Nelson. There are 84 starting cornerbacks in the NFL for Week #11. Nelson comes in at #80 according to PFF

Tom Brady

New England Patriots

Brady a Top Bet for DFS Cash Games


The Patriots stayed in mile-high country last week in order to get acclimated to higher altitudes. The Raiders remained at sea level. This week they square off in Mexico City, which is much higher than one mile up. The difference could be seen in the 2nd half where the Raiders could run out of gas.

Fantasy Goo: Regardless of the elevation narrative, this game opened as the only 50 pointer this coming week. Football Outsiders ranks Oakland dead last for defensive DVOA, weighted defense, and overall pass ranking. Plus, Tom Brady is a great stack with Gronk against Oakland who is notoriously bad versus tight ends. Finally, New England will likely be missing Hogan, the recipient of 11 red zone targets this season. Gronk could easily be the beneficiary, as he has 13 himself.

Mike Evans

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

FanDuel Triple Play - Pass Go Collect 2TDS


This Sunday is "National Play Monopoly day." What does that mean for FD? Absolutely nothing, but I'm taking a "chance" and grabbing these 3 players that have a bit higher price tag because that's how I won at Monopoly.

Mike Evans @MIA - $7,800 - Much like AJ Green last week, I am banking on Evans to deliver his game of redemption and bounce back in a BIG way. Ryan Fitzpatrick will only have eyes for the 6'5 Evans as he once did for Brandon Marshall in NY. Evans will coast down A1A for 2TDS!

Travis Kelce @NYG - $7,500 - Kelce has 3TDs in the last 3 games. The Giants are giving up a TD every game to opposing TEs this season. That's crazy! Momma ain't raise no fool. 1+1= 2TDs!

Melvin Gordon vsBUF - $7,800 - The Bills gave up 50FPTS at home to the Saints dynamic duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara just last week, and now have to fly to LA. Gordon will stampede all over the Buffalo Bills. 2TDs in da house!

Back To Week 12 Matchups

 

 

 

Green Bay @ Detroit

 

(Player Rankings based on Top 32 QBs, 50 RBs, 75 WRs & 32 TEs)

 

 

 

Green Bay Packers (10-0)

 

Packers Schedule

 

Opponent Defensive Ranks

Detroit Rush Defense – 2011: 134.7 Yards Allowed/Game (27th) || 6 TDs Allowed (T-6th)

Detroit Pass Defense – 2011: 193 Yards Allowed/Game (5th) || 10 TDs Allowed (T-3rd)

 

Green Bay Offensive Cast

 

Aaron Rodgers (QB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #1)

2011 Season: 238/329 – for 3,168 Yards, 31 TDs & 4 INTs || 48 Carries for 176 Yards & 2 TDs

 

The only reason I can see fantasy owners sitting Aaron "It Out" Rodgers on their bench for a game is because they happen to be a Lions fan and also have Matthew Stafford on their team. This is also probably the toughest pass defense he's faced all year, but if his offensive line can give him a little time, I just don't see him failing to produce.

 

James Starks (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #36 – LISTED AS QUESTIONABLE TO PLAY)

2011 Season: 120 Carries for 541 Yards & 1 TD || 28 Recs for 210 Yards & 0 TDs

 

If Starks comes out in pre-game warm-ups and tells the coaching staff he's ready to go, then he's not too bad of a play this week with the Lions play against the rush being the weakest part of their defense. If he's hobbled at all, however, he'll either split carries with Grant or maybe even sit out altogether.

 

Ryan Grant (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #44)

2011 Season: 73 Carries for 267 Yards & 0 TDs || 8 Recs for 69 Yards & 0 TDs

 

Grant's value this week completely depends upon James Starks' health. Watch the news before the game to see if Starks will be playing or not before you determine whether or not you can get Grant in there as a so-so flex play.

 

John Kuhn (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #46)

2011 Season: 9 Carries for 15 Yards & 3 TDs || 11 Recs for 46 Yards & 2 TDs

 

Kuhn has five TDs on 20 touches this season. That's pretty insane. If you're in a touchdown-heavy league, he's not too bad of a play. Otherwise, why would you have him on your team?

 

Greg Jennings (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #18)

2011 Season: 53 Recs for 761 Yards & 7 TDs

 

Jennings (knee) says that he's pretty close to 100 percent now and should be securely fastened into starting lineups as normal. However, he hasn't gotten the love he would normally see from Rodgers lately as Greg has only caught five balls on 11 targets over the last two weeks...but I expect that to change this week as Rodgers is going to need him in this tough interdivisional showdown.

 

Jordy Nelson (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #11)

2011 Season: 40 Recs for 756 Yards & 9 TDs

 

Nelson has been on fire as of late catching 16 of the 18 balls thrown his way over the last three games while turning them into 291 yards and FIVE touchdowns. He rarely drops a pass, has sneaky speed, and actually has quite a bit of strength in that 6'3", 217-pound body of his. Basically, he's become a must-start in fantasy leagues.

 

Donald Driver (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #66)

2011 Season: 22 Recs for 233 Yards & 2 TDs

 

Driver had his best game of the year last weekend catching four balls for 72 yards against the Buccaneers. That said, he's barely been playable this season, but if you're looking to catch lightning in a bottle, standing next to any Packers receiver is as good of a place to get lucky as any.

 

James Jones (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #62)

2011 Season: 21 Recs for 356 Yards & 4 TDs

 

Plain and simple, James Jones cannot catch a football. He's got speed and strength, but to get Aaron Rodgers to trust you, you have to be able to catch his (normally) perfectly thrown balls. However, like I said with Driver, any of these secondary Packers receivers can produce on any given Sunday...or Thanksgiving Thursday for that matter.

 

Randall Cobb (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: Unranked)

2011 Season: 15 Recs for 234 Yards & 1 TD

 

The rookie playmaker has a ton of talent, but unless you're in a return-yardage league, Cobb likely isn't worth starting. You gotta love his skills, though.

 

Jermichael Finley (TE Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #9)

2011 Season: 34 Recs for 475 Yards & 5 TDs

 

Jermichael has been a disappointment for fantasy owners all season long, but it's tough to take him out of your lineup knowing that he has those three-touchdown games in him. Unless you have one of the 4G Network guys such as Gronkowski, Gates, Graham or Gonzalez, Finley should still be in your lineup with him being in such a high-powered offense like the Packers.

 

 

 

Detroit Lions (7-3)

 

Lions Schedule

 

Opponent Defensive Ranks

Green Bay Rush Defense – 2011: 102.5 Yards Allowed/Game (12th) || 6 TDs Allowed (T-6th)

Green Bay Pass Defense – 2011: 289 Yards Allowed/Game (31st) || 18 TDs Allowed (T-24th)

 

Detroit Offensive Cast

 

Matthew Stafford (QB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #2)

2011 Season: 244/398 – for 2,843 Yards, 25 TDs & 10 INTs

 

Stafford was super-close to being the top quarterback in my rankings this week, but until Rodgers falters, I just can't take him out of the spot. That said, if you have both these studs on your fantasy team, I wouldn't blame you for starting Second-Half Staff over Rodge seeing how the Packers pass defense has given up the most fantasy points to opposing QBs this season.

 

Kevin Smith (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #18)

2011 Season: 20 Carries for 159 Yards & 2 TDs || 6 Recs for 71 Yards & 1 TD

 

I remember watching this kid play when he was a rookie and knowing there was something special about him...then of course came all the injuries and Kevin Smith became just another NFL dream smashed to pieces. But then as fate would have it, injuries would plague the Lions backfield and give Smith one more shot to make it work...and he did. Last week's 200-total-yard, three-TD effort was a thing of beauty, and though he won't repeat those numbers against a much better rush D this week, you still should get him in your lineup as a solid RB2.

 

Maurice Morris (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: Unranked)

2011 Season: 48 Carries for 201 Yards & 1 TD || 10 Recs for 89 Yards & 0 TDs

 

Morris has been no more than a back-up running back throughout his career, so it really shouldn't be a surprise that he has returned to his proper role so quickly. Unless you are in a super-deep league, don't bother here.

 

Keiland Williams (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: Unranked)

2011 Season: 41 Carries for 119 Yards & 1 TD || 1 Rec for 5 Yards & 0 TDs

 

Ugh. After that fumble last weekend against the Panthers, I'm surprised he wasn't cut.

 

Jahvid Best (RB Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: OUT)

2011 Season: 84 Carries for 390 Yards & 2 TDs || 27 Recs for 287 Yards & 1 TD

 

Best is still out dealing with his post-concussion issues. Keep him stashed on your bench.

 

Calvin Johnson (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #1)

2011 Season: 59 Recs for 974 Yards & 11 TDs

 

Megatron must have felt like the only man on the planet not getting to celebrate a Stafford-tossed TD last weekend, but no matter. He was cheering harder than anyone else regardless and is one of the true class-acts in the NFL. That said, Calvin loves going up against these teams in the NFC North, with the Packers being no exception. In seven career games against the Pack, Johnson has eight touchdowns, his most against any team in the league. With the Packers allowing the second-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season, how can you deny him the #1 slot?

 

Nate Burleson (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #40)

2011 Season: 41 Recs for 391 Yards & 2 TDs

 

Burleson has been awesome the last couple of games and should be able to continue his strong play against this weak Packers secondary. Get him in your lineup as either a WR3 or flex this week.

 

Titus Young (WR Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #52)

2011 Season: 28 Recs for 363 Yards & 2 TDs

 

Even though Titus has caught a TD in two of his last three games, it's hard to play him as more than a flex due to a rookie's inconsistency. However, if he's going to have a bust-out game, this one might be the one he does it in.

 

Brandon Pettigrew (TE Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #10)

2011 Season: 50 Recs for 435 Yards & 3 TDs

 

After disappearing for a few weeks, Pettigrew got back in the scoring column last weekend on a nice little seven-yard pass in the fourth quarter to go up on the Panthers for good. Who knows? That could be the catch that gets him going as a top ten tight end again.

 

Tony Scheffler (TE Week 12 Fantasy Ranking: #24)

2011 Season: 14 Recs for 177 Yards & 5 TDs

 

Scheffler caught a touchdown for the third week in a row last Sunday, but he still doesn't have more than three catches in any one game yet this season. Start if you want, but you're looking for that lucky TD more than anything else.
