With only two weeks left in the fantasy football regular season, it is important to make some moves for your final playoff push. Here are my favorite players to target for week 12.
1. Case Keenum
The Vikings are for real. In the last three games, Keenum has thrown for at least 280 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions. Keenum has a promising matchup versus the Lions on Thanksgiving.
2. Jacoby Brissett
He has a promising matchup against the Titans who are the eighth-worst pass defense in the league. Also coming off a bye, Brissett is a good option.
1. Samaje Perine
With Chris Thompson out with a broken leg, Perine will be the starter for the Redskins. Perine racked up 126 yards and a touchdown on 24 touches against the Saints last weekend. Perine should be at the top of your list with an easy schedule going forward.
2. Devontae Booker
Booker had more touches (19) than CJ Anderson last week versus the Bengals and totaled 98 yards. With a promising matchup against the Raiders, who are the sixth-worst rush defense, Booker is a good flex option.
3. Damien Williams
Williams racked up 102 yards last week on 11 touches against the Buccaneers. Even though Kenyan Drake is still in the picture, Williams production will lead to more touches against the shaky Patriots run defense.
4. Danny Woodhead
Woodhead should be stored on rosters for playoff runs in deeper leagues (12 or 14 man leagues). He is still a PPR machine who will continue to get more touches.
5. Austin Ekeler
With great production in his last two games, Ekeler is a valuable option in PPR and half-PPR 12 or 14 man leagues. He has a good matchup against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving day.
6. J.D. McKissic
McKissic is an electric player with the ball in his hands. He had 12 touches for 53 yards last week, and he will get more touches with Mike Davis out this week. The Seahawks play the 49ers this week who have the worse rush defense which provides a promising flex play for McKissic this week.
1. Kenny Stills
Stills needs to be added in all leagues. He had 7 catches for 180 yards and a touchdown last week. He will continue to get a lot of targets with Matt Moore at quarterback.
2. Corey Coleman
The Baylor standout is back. He got injured early in Week 2, and finally was back on Sunday where he totaled 6 catches on 11 targets for 80 yards. He is a solid flex play going forward.
3. Josh Doctson
With Jordan Reed injured, Josh Doctson is a reliable option in deeper leagues. He had 81 yards last week, and he has a favorable matchup this week versus the Giants.
4. Dede Westbrook
Westbrook’s return wasn’t as promising as the 200 yards he projected, but it showed glimpses of his great upside and potential that he showed in the preseason. He needs to be rostered in deeper leagues.
5. Josh Gordon
Gordon is available Week 13, so he must be rostered for fantasy playoff runs. Even though he hasn’t played in a couple years, he is one of the biggest upside players in fantasy history.
6. Chad Williams
The Cardinals are looking for new options at receiver which means Williams, a rookie, will get his chance to shine. With Gabbert at quarterback, there is upside for Arizona fantasy receivers. He only should be rostered in deeper leagues with a roster spot open.
1. Greg Olsen
A top 3 fantasy tight end when healthy, Olsen is a must pick up as he is coming back from his injury this week
2. Tyler Kroft
One of Dalton’s favorite targets, Kroft snagged a touchdown last week. He has a great matchup against the Browns who have the third-worst defense against opposing tight ends.
3. Ricky Seals-Jones
Seals-Jones is a high upside player in deeper leagues. He showed his big play potential in his debut on Sunday against the Texans as he pulled in two touchdowns. With the Cardinals looking for new options, I see Bruce Arians featuring Seals-Jones more.
A top 8 fantasy kicker who plays on one of the highest scoring teams.
1. Los Angeles Chargers D
After a huge week against the Buffalo Bills, the Chargers have another encouraging matchup against the Cowboys who are still trying to figure out their offense after the Zeke suspension.
2. Atlanta Falcons D
With one of the best pass rushes in the league, Atlanta defense can be streamed this week against Tampa Bay.
