Most of you are enjoying the Monday Night matchup between the New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers and others are already planning for week 12. Bobby Rainey lead the charge for week 11 with 167 total yards and 3 TDs totaling 34 Fantasy Points (36 in PPR). This week will bring some challenges as we have the Eagles, Bills, Bengals and Seahawks all on a bye this week. So lets jump right into it with my week 12 sleepers.
Week 12 Fantasy Football Sleepers
(UPDATED: Threw for 296 yards and a TD against the Panthers) Brady has always brought his A game when playing Peyton Manning and this game will be no different. This matchup has a lot at stake especially potential playoff seeding. The Broncos just gave up 230 yards and 2 TDs to Alex Smith and Brady comes to town not having the greatest of Fantasy season’s (crazy to think of him as a sleeper huh?). But I like the matchup for him this week.
Eli Manning vs. Dallas Cowboys
Manning and the Giants are riding a 4 game winning streak after starting the season 0-6. Eli coming off another mediocre performance with only 1 TD and he threw another interception but in his 1st game against the Cowboys on opening day he threw for 450 yards and 4 TDs (yes 3 INTs too). The Cowboys pass D hasn’t gotten any better since week 1 either. If you have Russell Wilson, Nick Foles or Andy Dalton on a bye this week, Eli is a nice plug and play this week.
Rashard Jennings vs. Tennessee Titans
Jennings has rushed for over 340 yards and 2 TDs over the last 3 games and even with the eventual return of Darren McFadden you have to figure Jennings has wrestled the job away. He faces a Titans run D that has given up multiple TDs to opposing RBs in 4 straight games. Jennings is worth the flier this week.
I think the big question surrounding this game is who will be the QB for the Texans this week but I care about this great matchup for Ben Tate. While the Jaguars have been better against the run the last two games (Minus the TD to Mendenhall), the Texans are going to have to set up the run. Tate has a chance at a great game against this mediocre run D.
Marques Colston vs. Atlanta Falcons
Well Mr. Colston welcome to the 2013 Fantasy Football season, you are only about 10 weeks late to the party. He has 12 catches 187 yards and a TD over the past two games after having 6 catches for 44 yards in his previous 4 games. It’s hard to trust him quite yet but facing a Falcons team giving up an average of 25 PPG to opposing WRs, he has a solid matchup for the Thursday Night game.
Anquan Boldin vs. Washington Redskins
Boldin found the endzone for the 1st time since week 4 and has potentially the best matchup up of the season for him. The Redskins haven’t been very good against the pass and this could be the type of game to get Boldin back on track.
Mychal Rivera vs. Tennessee Titans
Matt McGloin led the charge for the Raiders this week against the Texans tossing 3 TDs including one to Mychal Rivera (also leading the charge of the who the heck are these guys). McGloin should be under center for the week 12 matchup against the Titans and that’s great news for Rivera as the Titans just got torched by Cody Fleener and are giving up the 8th most Fantasy Points to TEs this year.
The Packers haven’t been great since losing Aaron Rodgers but the Vikings have Ponder/Cassell/Freeman (whoever plays QB) so their fortune hasn’t been much better. The Packers D will be on of the top streaming options for week 12.
