We are approaching Thanksgiving and an awesome full slate of NFL football games. With that being said here we are with the top Sleepers for Week 12
Steven Jackson v.s Ari – He has been running really hard as of late. I really think he is playing for the new contract at the beginning of the year. Other than last week when playing ahead, the Cardinals run D is terrible. Jackson should have no problem taking care of business this week.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis v.s Oak – Ellis had his best game as a member of the Bengals. With a struggling Oakland team that can’t stop anything. He should run well against the Raiders this week.
Aaron Hernandez v.s NYJ – Coming off an injury it’s hard to tell how healthy he will be. But with Gronkowski out for 4-6 weeks, he will automatically become a top target for Brady. Last time he came back he had 16 targets and 11 catches in two games. He should be in all starting lineups this week.
Ronnie Hillman v.s KC – His 1st start couldn’t come at a better time. He is facing a KC team that is horrendous. They have given up over 80 plus yards in every game this year. Hillman should be given the chance to carry the load this week. Good upside as a RB2/Flex Play.
Justin Blackmon v.s TN – Blackmon coming off a career game against the Texans. 7 catches 236 yards and a very nice 81 yard touchdown catch. With Henne getting the nod again on Sunday, Blackmon should be heavily targeted again. Good for him the Titans are coming to town. Team that struggles to stop the pass, so he should be a good WR2/WR3 this week.
Kendall Wright v.s Jax – This could be a high scoring affair between these two teams with bad D’s. Wright gets a lot of targets and he will again in this game. Could be a very nice WR3/Flex for you this week.
Those are my Week 12 sleepers, I will be posting my start/sits on Friday. Any thoughts or questions feel free to comment below or contact me on Twitter.(@rickygangster)
