Lineup Prep: Week 12


In keeping with tradition, I will write what I'm thankful for (fantasy edition) in this week's column. Before getting to that, I just want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the day of family, food and football. Now for what I'm thankful for. . . . . I am thankful for a changing of the guard at the quarterback spot. It is great to see a new crop of young fantasy quarterbacks becoming difference makers for fantasy teams. Guys like Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Deshaun Watson and Dak Prescott are the new faces of the position and making a name for themselves. These young quarterbacks will have fantasy owners in good hands for years to come. I am thankful for pass-catching backs. These guys don't go as early as some of the elite starers but produce just as good, especially this season. Don't forget about this strategy next year, loading up on backs that might not start but catch the ball. Chris Thompson, Duke Johnson and Alvin Kamara are big-time fantasy players that don't even start on their own teams.

Waivering: Week 12


The waiver wire isn't quite as hot of a place as the season progresses because fantasy teams lose interest and others are out of the playoff chase. This leaves fewer teams to try to pickup players, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The bad news is the players normally out there to pickup aren't that great at this time of the year. So there is some good and bad with the waiver wire at this point of the season. There are some players out there in a lot of leagues that could help, though, so take a look at the list below before putting in your claims for Week 12. QUARTERBACKS Blaine Gabbert, Cardinals . Gabbert showed well in his first start of the season. He had a three-touchdown performance and moved the offense pretty well. He looked better than previous starter Drew Stanton, but isn't guaranteed the starting job moving forward. He gets another start this week, though, and has value to fantasy teams in a starting role. He can produce some big games in this pass-friendly offense, making him a nice streamer for fantasy owners.

Studs and Duds: Week 11


For the second straight week, we had several big fantasy performances, leading to many high-scoring fantasy games. Once again, several players carried their teams to victory all by themselves. Guys like Antonio Brown, Keenan Allen and Ben Roethlisberger won games for many teams with their huge performances. But there were several other players with big games that made big differences for fantasy teams. Here is to hoping you were on the winning side of things in Week 11. Steelers 40, Titans 17 Fantasy Stud : Antonio Brown . Brown carried fantasy teams to victory all by himself, having as good of a game from any fantasy receiver this season. He caught 10 passes for 144 yards and three touchdowns. He made an unbelievable helmet catch for his last score, trapping the ball with one hand and his helmet. It was quite the performance from Brown, who continues to be the top fantasy receiver in the game.

Injury Status: Week 11


The injury report isn't too daunting this week. This is good news for once when it comes to this area. We also have some players set to return from Injured Reserve this week, which is another positive. There are still some injuries of note, though, that will impact fantasy teams. It isn't all peaches and cream. Here is the latest. . . . . Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons . Freeman is not being ruled out just yet because of a concussion, but it doesn't look great for him to play. This is the second time he has suffered a concussion this season, which usually means some missed time. Tevin Coleman is expected to start for the Falcons and has great fantasy value in that role. Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers . Rivers is another player battling a concussion but he got in some practice Wednesday and things are looking pretty good for him to play. He is trending up but will need to pass the concussion protocol to be cleared to play. We should have an idea on his status before the week is out. Keep an eye on the notes for the latest.
